Ive been away from the forums and training for about a year, give or take - due to some r/l hassles. Thats all sorted now (huray) and im getting my ass back down the gym. Whilst reading the forums over the last few days i was struck by the solidness of Builts BGB routine and thought I would start there.
I have a couple of questions as a result, which are quite noobish but ive been out of training so long i feel like one anyhow so...
Rack pulls are in there and in the squatrack we have in the gym i can either set it as my mid shin OR about 2 inches above my knee. The upper adjustment feels like im cheating my ass off and the lower setting feels like i may aswell be doing deads. Any advice here?
Incline cable flys are used too. Ive not seen these done and im not sure of the movement. Is it a 90 degree fly mvmt like a dumbell fly would be but with cables or is it more like an inclined version of a standing cable crossover mvmnt for the chest?
Whats the diff between romanian deads and regular deads?
Thats about as many dumb questions as I dare ask for my humiliated pride for now! Cheers for any replies
Hey, thanks! Glad you like the setup!Originally Posted by Augury
Stand on a low platform so you can find the adjustment that works for you.Originally Posted by Augury
You're lying on a low incline, it's like dumbbell flyes, which you can also use.Originally Posted by Augury

Look up romanian deadlifts.
Cheers muchly Built - nice to get info from the designer - kinda spoiling us here
now all i gotta do is repeat all the exercises for months and months till good things happen. yeah and eat.
I do rack pulls from above the knees.
Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.
I do too, actually. I have a lower back issue that seems to flare up when I try to go below, although weirdly, I'm fine for RDLs.
