Re: Different techniques of barbell rows

I do the Pendlay row where the bar touches the top of your abdomen. By doing it this way I can better squeeze my shoulder blades together. But I must admit that sometimes when my form is off I can feel it in my lower back. I then have to reset so that my form is correct and it won't impact my lower ...

Re: Should I add to the Stronglifts 5X5?

Well a squat rack is out of the question. The equipment that I have I've gotten over the years much to my spouse's displeasure. At this point I don't want to push the issue as she would kill me! So I'm making the best out of what I have. Now maybe when we get another house I can consider upgrading, ...

No problem man. I'm going to start an account with one of those online picture sites and then post the links. Now my gym is not state of the art nor super expensive, but it does the trick. Pics coming soon.

Re: Should I add to the Stronglifts 5X5?

Well you guys are either going to laugh or try to shoot me. I'm going to go back on what I said and I'm going to add to and rearrange the workout program. :eek: Why?
