    T-bar Rows!!

    So I started my new lifting routine on Monday and I would like to say I LOVE T-bar rows. It is the first time I have ever done them and I just love it. Im a little sad I will only be doing them once a week now haha!

    If you are interested I just started a log so you can follow along!

    Also, I was wondering if everyone has a favorite lift in the gym? What do you look forward to the most?

    T-bars are great until they get heavy. I can do over 4 plates, but setting up is a bit scary for me.

    Yeah T-Bar rows are great. I can bent-over row more than my lower back can handle, so T-bar rows are great for adding some heavy weight. At my strongest I could also do about 4 plates.

    My favorite exercise changes just like my favorite songs change.

    I like the T-bar rows as well but sometimes I wonder if my height prevents me from getting in the right position. I keep a slight knee bend and about a 45 degree bend at the hips. Anymore and I'd fall forward on my face. Of course this is with the fixed T-bar row. Does this position sound about right to you guys?

    It ends up being a fairly low pull row for me.

    Also, deads and rows are my favorite.

    Indeed T-Bar rows are fun, at the moment I can do 3 plates but improving slowly.

    My favorite exercises are deadlifts, bent rows. I loved Squats for 2 years, I dont know why all of a sudden I dislike it.

    I am one of only a few people I know that go to the same gym that I go to that love pull-days. everyone always groans "uhh...another pull-day." I'm always pumped for them.

    as for the T-bar rows, I love 'em too. try supine rows, they're also great.

    my gym doesnt have a t-bar row machine, so i do longbar rows, and use a 2 handed cable attachment to lift the bar (like this but with the attachment) :




    i like shoulder pressing, seated db, or standing bb is my fav lift

    thats bad ass! i usually use a heavy dumbell over the end, and that works fine for me. but i make sure the bar is against a wall so the db doesnt roll off

    yea that is pretty cool!

    Pull days are definite favs. Might be that if the weight is too much it falls away from you instead of at you.

    just make sure that if you use an attachment you rest it on the 'grippy' part, otherwise it will slide up/down the bar when you go to pick it up

    Or ask them to get one of those devices that I'm getting. Thats if you are friendly with the owners.
