on my latest workout i did 54 kg (which is 120 pounds) for 5 reps

as it stands now i can load up a bell to 66 kg (which is 145 pounds)

i'm thinking that maybe i'll have to buy some 20 kg plates for my bells, coz then i'll be able to load up a bell with 102 kg (which is 225 pounds)

Love one arm rows. My gym's db's only go to 150 and I have done those for a set of 8. But honestly last time I included them in my routine I did 3 sets of 10-15 with 115 without straps and felt like I got much more out of them that way.

DB rows give me a sense of power and actually accomplishing something. Also do DB Hi-pulls, with the same feeling and  with good results.

                       Good Luck.

fuck! you dudes can kick ma ass with these, but if i can get them up to 145's for 6 reps or so then that won't be so bad i guess

especially if i can pull them 145's while only weighing 175 or so Grin

maybe hitting 225 is a la-la land for me lol

woo and yev 33 are right better to do 8-15 reps strict than yank for only a few reps and not get anything out of them , i used straps and grips pic'd a few times but found my grip would get weaker in other moves from not gripping on my own.

8-15 reps is too many damn reps IMO and in my own personal experience

i gain strength and size the best and quickest when i keep the rep range @ around 4-6 reps or maybe even up to 8 reps, but after 8 reps my strength increases plummet and higher reps don't do jack shit for me

maybe i'll post up before and after photos of my back to prove the point that increased training poundages=bigger muscles Wink

I was able to move up from 105's for 3 sets of 10-15 to the 115's for 3 sets of 10-15 fairly quick. And my grip strength improved as well.

i do not use straps anymore... at this point thanks to consistent grip training, my grip exceeds my back strength

hey if it works for you that's great, that's the true secret of lifting what works for one guy might not work for someone else, also as you age you have to adjust your workouts accordingly to have some longevity.

200 for 30 reps with gymrat / retard form

150 for 15 with super strict form

guess which one has my lats sore the next day and which one has my bicep tendon feeling like it's about to tear?

120lbs is usually enough to get the blood moving in the lats.

The gym i currently train at only has DB's up to 125 pounds, so i use those without straps for 20+ reps towards the end of my back routine.  I have always gotten great results from doing one arm rows.

The heaviest i have attempted was 160's for 12 reps with straps many years ago and i was already fatigued at that point.  I have always been very strong at rowing movements.  I've used the 140's for 15 reps without straps many years ago and that was quite an accomplishment.

I get a much better feel with DB's and i feel it more in my lats when i do a smooth stretch and contraction.  I always do them controlled and try not to sling them around too much.


Cool

Sometimes it takes someone else to see how you're lifting to tell you your form sucks. Training back is much more effective when getting a smooth stretch and contraction like overload said.....otherwise all you're doing is training biceps and lower back. I rather do those on their own separate days.

When training back I imagine my elbows are attached to long cables and its them doing all the pulling and focus on feeling the back contracting on the positive. On the negative slowly release and stretch all the way out before I bring it back in/down.

To me that's bodybuilding...focusing solely on strength is not. Weight used is irrelevant to me but on dbs rows I use the 100s for a good 8 reps since what the thread is about.

I buddy of mine was having issues with getting his back to grow. So I watched one of his back workouts and he was doing one arm rows with 40's. He was curling 45's at the time with super strict form. I got him to start using 80's and showed him how do them properly, within 3 months there was a noticeable difference in his back.
