Sep 4, 2015 11:23 AM: Now the Stronglifts 5x5 instructs that the weight starts on the floor and you set the weight back down on the floor between each rep. Is that true? I've done it both ways and keeping the barbell off the ground the amount of weight I can pull is significantly higher when the weight touches the ground...+See More

Aug 5, 2015 3:52 PM: Title/names are misleading, as the picture shows Yates Rows. You should definitely have separate page for classical Bent-over barbell rows to avoid confusion....

Jul 7, 2013 2:11 PM: Excellent mass builder for middle back. I prefer barbells over dumbbells as to the amount of weight used. I go heavy for 6-8 reps for 5 sets. Wear a belt and use strict form.

Mar 8, 2013 3:27 PM: I am not sure if this one will become a staple in my back workout. Having had lower back issues I may stick to the two arm single bar rows or try the EZ bar to try to hit that middle back area as a finishing move but not a mass builder.
