I've never tried reverse grip rows. They sound horribly uncomfortable. I bet they work great!
Foam Rolling & Warm Ups
BW x a whole lot
155 x 1 - Shoulders hurt; did some more warm-up work on them
155 x 5
225 x 5
275 x 5 - added belt & sleeves; I usually don't put these on until I hit 300 lbs, but tonight I was not 'feeling' it.
300 x 5 - good set, really sat back and drove with the hips out of the hole
335 x 5 - crap set. Came out of the hole by leaning forward transferring the effort to my quads. My posterior chain is plenty strong enough for this weight. Technique was for crap. Should have racked the weight, got my mind straight, and started over. But I'm stupid.
375 x 5 - I did learn from my mistakes. Much better set, much better concentration. Might have cut the first two reps a little high.
315 x 10 x 2 - Rocked these sets! Well, until the eighth rep anyway. After that, it was a hell'uva struggle!
Rope Ab Pulldowns
80 x 20 x 3
BW = 195 lbs
There is no shame in racking the weight if a set feels off. Better to reset and get it right than continue with crappy technique and risk injury. Sad part was knowing what I was doing wrong and repeating the mistake 5 times. Problem most likely started before I even unracked the bar. Take your time and get your set-up right. If it isn't - reset and do it again.
