Lower back pop from T bar rows

I tried to do my first set with more than I could handle on the T bar row and after the 3rd rep I felt a quick pop in my lower back. I instantly stopped. I started to feel very dizzy and having distorted sight for 20 seconds (that may have been a panic attack - which I didnt get in my life ever...

15-20 rep range good for triceps and biceps?

First 2 sets I do 15-20 reps, 1 or maximum 2 reps shy from failure and the 3rd sets until failure. All with the same weight. This seems to get me the best and biggest pumps in my triceps and biceps. Is it a good indicator that this is the rep range that works for me the best?

Which bar for bent over rows?

I currently have an standard Olympic bar, a non-rackable curl bar, and a non-rackable shortie straight Olympic bar. Which of those three is best for bent over rows? Not sure if the hand positions of the curl bar make it better for that? I don’t own a trap bar, but at my commercial gym I’ve...

Anyone else use the Hoist Mid Row machines as a pull exercise?

For the longest time, I've been mainly doing either cable or machine rows for horizontal pulls and lat pulldowns/chins for vertical pulls. I mainly just worked my lats but my gym got a new Hoist Mid Row machine and for the first time, I feel my mid back activated. Anyone else like this machine?...

Wide squats instead as a hip extension exercise?

So my wife is my training partner, but she is dramatically short of patience, so trying to learn something especially in a public place is frustrating as she gives up easily. Currently we do similar lifts as it’s easier to gauge her progress and it makes her more comfortable working out in...

Weighted Close-Grip Push-Ups instead of Dips

Anyone have any experience with weighted close-grip push ups. Kind of like diamond push-ups but a tiny bit wider hand position and a more standard hand position vs. making a diamond with your hands. I decided to lose the weighted dips and add the close-grip push-ups. Hoping to build the triceps...

Sumo deadlift good for leg hypertrophy?

I'm looking for a main heavy leg exercise. Now I hate squatting. I just cant feel my legs working very good and I was never good at them. Which means I just couldnt train them hard enough. And I tried to get good at them for pretty much 8 months now, and I decided to give them up. I love...
