    I believe this is one of the forbidden topics, but that hasn't stopped me recently.

    I can do 225 for 5 good reps. Carnal can row like 9000lbs or something insane like that. Try to increase the weight everytime you go.

    I would think you would be near the 300 range.

    I can just imagine Carnal giggling like a schoolgirl when he reads this thread title. I would too, though, if I could row four plates a side.

    Sorry to dissapoint you. :D

    I do rows after deads. I haven't really concentrated on rows though. I guess it's something that I need to work on.

    I did my best BOR workout ever two weeks ago.

    BB Rows
    245X6
    295X5
    315X5
    335X3
    355X3
    385X3
    410X3

    I do not claim these as "strict" however. Just like I discriminate between a competition style bench and a gym style bench. I cut probably the first 2-3" of ROM off with my legs to use less of my biceps and really get my lats and traps into the lift completely. My torso isn't always 90 degrees, but I don't do them at 45 degrees like Yates either.
