Row variants

Wondering what kind of rows everyone here prefers? I started out with Fierce 5 Novice (6 months), doing Pendlay rows. Moved onto the Eric Helms Novice Bodybuilding routine (5 months) where I did dumbbell rows. I liked the dumbbell rows a lot more because they didn't fatigue my lower back like...

What exercises to do with a kettlebell that is to heavy for you (32kg)

Are there any exercise to do with it? Like maybe a kind of deadlift or squat? Since the gym is closed because of the corona, the gym gave out free kettlebell to the members to use while its closed, and it was only the heaviest left... are there any good exercises to do with it?

Can I do seated incline presses sat on the floor with my back against this bench?

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71nmqB23M3L._AC_SL1500_.jpg Only change from the normal exercise is that my knees would be raised up, that shouldn't have any impact.. right? At that angle there looks to be too much of a gap, but it should be okay at higher inclines. I'm...

Question Bicep curls and shoulder raises you do with only light weight?

Progressive overload with these exercises seems like every month or two add as much as the smallest your weight goes. You can lift more by just working stabiliser muscles I think like doing back and shoulder press core some sht like that legs... What do you guys do with exercises like this?

How many reps of 225 can you bench?

It looks like the last thread asking this is over ten years old. Since this is one classic measure of strength endurance (such as the NFL uses), it would be interesting to put down a time stamp for the forum as we begin the new decade. For me, it's 12. How many can you all do?

Pushups, chin ups, and BW split squats daily?

Any problems in doing this assuming I am working with just my body weight for all of the exercises? My gym is closed for the next month or so and I’m hoping to preserve as much strength as possible. I’m only benching/rowing a little over one plate so I don’t carry much upper body mass, but I am...
