    I use wraps on my work sets. Do I have to? Probably not. But why not?
  • Using straps feels like cheating? Mixed grip...

    Using straps feels like cheating? Mixed grip accomplishes the same thing: they allow you to lift more weight than you could otherwise hold.

    I’d just get a set of straps or tape your thumbs.

    I like to pause at the top of back work, mostly to assure myself I used my actual back muscles to move the weight vs heaving the the weight up like 99% of people out there.

    Other than that, I’ll...

    Mostly this ^

    But more importantly how would you know they aren’t tracking?

    I know a few people who can literally remember everything they did during a session.

    Just pick a few rows (preferably chest supported) and a few pulldowns/up variations.

    The higher the stability, the more actual back you will work.

    Do more rows with a pronated grip.

    Don’t waste time with shrugs (which isn’t even a trap exercise if you’re bolted upright)

    If you have legit back issues, I’d stay away from back extensions. Imagine if you will trying to lift your whole body with JUST your posterior…

    I reiterate my point I made in another one of your...

    Scoliosis?

    Google Lamar Gant.

    You can easily train around scoliosis.

    The bulging disk(s) on the other hand…

    Necessary… for what?

    For maximizing bicep development, you need to hit them directly. No other way around it.

    If that isn’t a concern for you, then don’t.

    Your back still has the job of helping keep your core rigged, just not to the same extent.

    But if your a good morning BB squatter then the hack squat will probably be a better option for quad...

    Either one is “fine” but also meh as far as rear delts are concerned.

    Building a big chest you say….

    A Hammer chest press or any other good converging chest press would be your best bet.
