    T-Bar Rows.

    My workout area is only 12' x 8' but can do some many quality exercises within this space. I'm all about the old school, less is better without the fancy machines.

    Its that time of year, 25 degrees in the the garage this morning, no heat in winter, no AC in the summer, wouldn't change it, keeps me honest.

    The most essential exercises for back. Barbell rows, T-bar rows, deadlifts. and pull-ups.

    Can count number of times I have done t-bar rows on one hand. The movement does not really allow you to put on enough weight without tipping forward. The moment when you get up to heavier weights makes it pretty much useless for me. It is not really about the where the weight goes on the bar, but rather the hand position required. It becomes impossible to get the movement close enough to the legs that the weight transfer wants to tip you over.

    True. I usually load up with 25lb plates so I get more range of motion. I concentrate on the isolation and squeeze at top. Took me awhile to dial in on the position, like you said.

    So do you have a question or just posting because?
    You could also add DB rows to your exercises.

    You are much stronger than I am so my experience may not transfer. That said, I like t-bar rows but the setup really matters. I use a spacer ring to push the plates out farther and a v-handle on the shaft, the back end is in a landmine attachment off the rack. This works well and gets the right plane of motion but you have to be careful not to cheat and use your legs excessively. At 3x5x195 (counting plates only) it's good, I'm not sure it would work as well if you can row twice that. Previously I tried to use one of those ring and chain setups and it pushed the lever arm too far out to work right for me.

    I have a small infrared heater in the garage, keeps it at 60 degrees all winter. Of course, I live in Oregon where we don't get ridiculous sub-zero temperatures.

    Heater on a timer set 30 mins before you start to take the edge of it when the weather gets colder?

    One thing I've been doing as a finisher every workout, is "bodyweight rows" on TRX. A pair of fatgripz and a bit of rope or 2 long climbing slings thrown over the bar of your rack you'll have the same. I've done before with slings and fatgripz and it works nicely.

    I put a bench or box under my feet so my body comes parallel at top of pull. You can put weight plate on your chest as you need. I do 4*10. It's similar muscles to a cross between facepull and dumbbell row. Hit those delts, lats rhomboids

    Edit:

    Bodybuilding is much more than an hour in the gym a few days a week---it's a lifestyle that changes all your perceptions about how to live, eat, and rest. It feeds the mind as much (and sometimes more so) than the body.
