So I'm doing the rippetoes program for my strength training. I don't follow the diet that goes along with it, I do want to bulk but I care more about functional strength for my MT and bjj training as well as eating clean. The program is going pretty well, I can't really give a number on how long I've been doing it because I've been so off and on with training the past couple months (knee injury, vacation, work, etc.) but nonetheless I've raised my bench from 110 to 130 (working on 135 now for all 3 sets), and squats from 135-185. DL has hovered around 205 since I started and I think thats due to lack of consitancy with training for it not raising much since it was already high for my size and weight to begin with. Anyway one lift that annoys me is the BOR's or pendalay rows. Honestly I just don't feel like its effective or really doing anything for me. Sure I've increased the weight on it, but when I am performing the lift it feels akward. Like its heavy but its not working any muscles, make sense? I just feel like there could be something much more effective in its place and I'm wondering if anyone had any suggestions. My upper back needs alot of work, as I have really poor posture and am having alot of trouble fixing it. Help me out!
