Archer Pull-ups Holysh!t

As any new exercise one performs it is always going to be odd and a little more difficult than normal (at least it is for me). I just wanted to say that nice slow archer pull-ups really hit my lats. Like good enough I think I will add them in and maybe drop some of my close reverse grip PU. ...

Garage Rat should have more reps

The guy has a great build, experience in all aspects of our "hobby", and always gives solid advice. I just noticed his reps are disproportionately low for such great contribution. I guess it's because he is rather soft spoken and measured that he slips off the radar. Just saying.
