I think you should push that exercise a bit more. It will pay off for deadlift. ALL of the big pullers, have big rows.

They are supposed to be explosive, but that of course means different things to different lifters.
Very fair point made here and thanks for the honesty men…I used to go heavier with the Pendlay rows but neglected them for some time…
Aiming to build these back up over 100kgs for reps in the next few weeks..

110kg x 3
120kg x 5 – 4sets
130kg x 3
135kg x 2 – 2sets

And I thought I was keeping things simple!! I like how you are also getting some abwork in. I keep saying I gotta do that but I never seem to get a Round Tuit.

Hope you have a really great labor Day Weekend!
