I do the same type of rows as Pete. I don't believe in babying rows. I also don't believe in the near standing up rows.

Fiber recruitment improves as the reps mount, so I would say that once you have performed all the quality reps you can, it's ok to do 1-2 cheat reps for certain exercises just as a recruitment failsafe.

With that said, there aren't many exercises I feel comfortable cheating on. For most lifts I would rather stick to progression and play it safe.

With each exercise the question is: is the risk worth the reward. No one can answer that but you.
