    I love pull-ups and been doing them for probably 20+ years.

    I do pull-ups twice per week. Always medium width pronated grip. One day I go for 3x10 (currently with 1 plate) and one day I go heavy...

    Just like deadlifting shouldn't hurt your back. But everyone hurts their low back deadlifting bc form slips as you fatigue and/or weights get heavy.

    Any trap bar RDL converts?

    Low back hasn't felt great recently and is notable during RDLs. I don't pull from the floor.

    Safety squat bar vs front squats?

    I'm learning to front squat (to replace high bar back squat) in hopes of reducing low back injury risk.

    Curious how safety bar squats compare to front squats in terms of low back strain and...

    Could you give an update now that you've had it for a few months.

    Best / worst exercises with it? Neutral vs the pronate?
