Nice. Too many people posting their Kroc rows as sets of 5 or 8. Kroc rows are 20+ reps of burning hell and were developed because he ran out of heavier dumbells and could only do more reps.

I've been wondering if I should run in the 8 rep range until I run out of heavier DBs, or start going higher reps, or if it even matters, just shut up and row something.

I intend to do these for the first time this afternoon. I'm planning on ramping up to one balls to the wall set of 20+.
I'm interested to see how my grip holds up.

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.

I love higher rep rows. I think I hit 150 x 42 with Rich Knapp last time we trained, which is nowhere near Kroc level. Damn fun though.
This is how I perform them, which I think are pretty close to what Kroc describes. It might not seem like it, but I am focused on contraction during each and every rep. At some point they start to get real sloppy, so I shut them down. Sloppy is usually close to failure.

Good post. I'm going to pull them back into my training soon. I've missed them. When last I did them, I think I was rest/pausing (10 seconds), and aiming for 30 reps before I increased. I think I'll try a straight set next time I do them.
