    see i only have 40kg in my weight bucket at the moment – so being able to
    do it like this is something i would love to do but cant because my maximum
    row is something like 20g – all together! but still thats 4, 5kg plates,
    making bending over to do rows from the floor awkward – for back and knees
    — – – – any suggestions??? other than buy more wieghts/bigger plates cos
    im broke lol

    @kyle0681 It’s a good exercise to do when you have a back injury.

    Not kidding but this along with the Overhead press are the 2 exercises I
    find that i have most difficulty in :'(

    It doesn’t look like the barbell is touching your chest – that’s the part I
    struggle with as well. Is it alright to just go lift the bar within 2
    inches of your chest?

    Raising the bar on a couple of plates to get it higher off the ground

    It’s how Mehdi said it is supposed to be done. Althought I do it too, I’m
    still looking for the right reason. Maybe because it does requires more
    balance to drop it and lift it again from scratch

    Its to get a full range of motion, if you don’t then your only doing a half
    rep and half reps are no good for strength and can injure you.

    he isn’t touching his chest though, how can that be perfect form?

  13. xxstealerxx / September 15, 2012

    yes he is, if you listen closely the bar is hitting his chest.

    Some people I know kept calling it the Bentley or Pently row something
    along those lines. I just know mehdi calls it “Barbell row” and thats fine
    by me.

    Is it so bad to train squats in the smith machine? My gym doesn’t have a
    power rack so I have to do the squats in the smith. I do the warm ups in
    the free weights though and I can feel how the two movements are different.

    its very bad try doing a zercher squat

    stronglifts recommends it more so this way because by putting it on the
    ground and lifting it again, you’re resetting the load and working the
    lower back more as well. that’s the only reason.

    I didn’t know you were meant to row the bar to your chest..
