Dumbest argument ever, but a lot of guys are claiming that you did rows sloppy, and some guys wrote that you did heavy rows with very strict form. Could I get some insight on if you did both at various times or preferred one style of barbell rowing to the other?
A little of both. I always felt that if I did them too strict, I only felt it in my arms from pulling with them too much. I pictured them like a rower in a boat. The movement stretches more and is a little safer. It worked for me!! Hope this answers your question. Take care, Eddy
So before I even asked Ed, my take was........."The thing that may be applied here is that Ed may have done strict rows before, and sloppy rows later, or sloppy rows before and strict rows later."
The other thing I learned about arguing is before you go telling someone they are "talking out of their ass" you better go to the source first.
Ed did both.
But I like this debate, and I'm going to put up a post later for guys who want to participate in the first LRB study about rows in relation to deadlift strumpf and/or the building of it. That way we here at LRB don't become part of the mental masturbation crew, and actually try to find out what's the most effective shit we can do in our training.
