I like doing Yates Rows. http://www.stumptuous.com/badrow.html <-- Scroll down about halfway. To execute the movment, you have to start in a quarter-squat position, and this kills my legs as I'm literally just "squatting" there for 8-10 reps. Sometimes it feels like my legs are going to give out before my back does. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?
Sometimes my hammies get tired during a set of T-bars.... work through it and stop whining :P

The first man takes the sails
Second takes the afterdeck
The third: the planks and rails.
It's normal. You'll adjust. Keep rowing!

Squat more ...it'll get easier.
Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

Only like 85-95 lbs, but it hurts my legs in that position.

Stumptuous has a great site. Thanks for reminding me of her.
I think i learned the form for STDL from that site and from you. hahahaOriginally Posted by Built
Well, you KNOW I'm old ... memory fails sometimes ...
Yeah I do think her site is pretty cool.
hey fix how about this.. when you perform that exercise. rest your ass or lean on a pole or a wall to take some pressure off of your legs.
Alright thanks I might try that.
I can't tell you how many people (men and women) I've referred to that site for good, no BS lifting information.
With strength I burn
i do these rows too man and it hurts my quads after doing 8 reps and especially when u have to hold not just yourself but extra weight that you are lifting, just squat, it will get easier
You are doing something wrong. You are bending your legs too much.
With that in mind, do you guys think it matters how much you bend at the knees? I find if I bend a bit more and kinda "sit back" I feel it alot less on my LB and can focus on the actual movement. Is this any different than say, keeping knees almost straight?

Ok, looked at the link you provided. You are doing them wrong!
The woman is having you perform a shrug combined with a static squat??? Lol, that is horrible!
Let me give you a picture of the man himself doing the movement. You will note he leans forward more at the beginning and then straightens his back a bit at the end of the movement. He looks NOTHING like that woman doing the movement and I promise you he never worried about his legs giving out first.
Keep your lower back arched but definitely lean over a bit more and don't bend your legs quite as much.
