You leaned back on lat pulldowns right off the bat. Why?
Only enough for the bar to not hit the top of my head, E. I did not lean far back at all. Just barely.
Your range of motion of db rows is not good and you continue to angle your body so that you working side is "up"…this exercise seems darn near impossible for you to get "perfect" and you need to be able to do it right before you get to cheat (my opinion). You should slow down.
Maybe I need a more forward type lean.
Your cable rows improved but you do not extend your arms all the way all the time. I wanted you to start with a weight that was easy. You did not. Why are you looking for a "sweet spot?"
Sir the weight flew off the stack. You told me to start with something really light. The weight just flew off.
I didn't see preacher curls in this vid but I know that the last time I saw them you used a partial range of motion by not extending your arm all the way (straightening the elbow).
Try slowing down all the "bodybuilding" stuff and paying attention to what you're doing.
I am trying to go with the pump and feeling the muscle moving. I'll slow down and start paying more attention to what I am doing.
