    I appreciate the positive comments!

    In terms of doing the rows free standing vs. kneeling on a bench I do not notice much of a difference between the two, although kneeling does flatten out the...

    I appreciate all of the positive posts, and am glad that a couple of people are going to give these a try with the 'safety' setup.

    Nice! It is a bit scary if you do not have a good spotter or some sort of setup to keep you from getting pinned on the floor, but I like them.

    On my volume work I do them with pauses which makes...

    It sounds like you had a good plan, but not every exercise works for everyone. I went years without doing barbell or dumbbell rows - although I did eventually add them back in to my training.

    Nice! Using a Swiss Bar is a fun way to mix things up, one of the gyms that I train at has one but I do not have one at the house (have a log which I guess I could use if I figured out a way to rack...

    Thank you - I like to mix it up between Floor Press (usually with chains), Incline Bench (barbells or dumbbells), Overhead Press (Log or Axle), Push Press, Slingshot Bench (with bands), etc.

    I would not super set barbell deadlifts and stiff-leg barbell deadlifts. Have you tried using dumbbells for the stiff-leg deadlifts? They typically allow for a greater range of motion.

    Interesting - what sets/reps were you using? And did you try them with a pause on the bottom? (have done them that way in the past with lighter weight and I believe it was beneficial)

    I actually do them to overload my triceps and like them because they limit my chest involvement (have torn/strained my pecs in the past). The chains provide a nice progressive overload if you have...

    I would give them a try, I feel like they are easier on the shoulders/pecs than traditional benching (similar benefits to a slingshot, without the rebound/boost).
