According to strength standard elite level in db row for my bodyweight would be a single with 200, I don't think I can do that. 

Then cheat?  Its what all the elite dudes do at some point amirite? Dont doubt yourself..

Learn to cheat 200 a little and 170 will be butter strict.

I like it, many form purists can learn from it. Perspective is a good thing.

This thread needs more rowing vids. I need to include one type of row or another in my bench cycle. I'm thinking seal rows ala @Kluv#0 with cmu blocks. Post up some seal rows @king crusher. I dare ya.

I'm super curious to see a vid from @Hopefully too. You seem like you must be a pretty strong dude.

I'll do some rows tomorrow actually, I can shoot a video if you really want. 

I don't know, maybe I'm decent, my working weight tomorrow will be 155 or 165 for 5-8s I think. 

According to strength standard elite level in db row for my bodyweight would be a single with 200, I don't think I can do that. Advanced 155 apparently. 

It would be cool to connect a face with your posts.

The Cardinal sin of dumbbell rows, what could really wreck it, is not cheating to lift the most weight, which has gone on forever, but cheating to lift strict. That threatens the fundamental aspect of dumbbell rows. Which is their spontaneity. If dumbbells are lifted strictly, they are no different from movies they’re scripted.

There's a place for both strict and cheat.  For instance, take the Viet Kong...

Thanks all.

 

Mike is right, using a bit of body English on certain things is just another way to mix it up and all pros etc incorporate them into their training. Hell, look at Ronnie coleman,  dude had the worst form on most everything and no one came close to touching him in his prime.

 

The ones who truly talk about full range of motion and strict and slow etc are never the most impressive people in any gym I've ever been to.

 

There is a time and place for strict and slow and there is real benefit to a bit of swing etc. I personally use it all, as I have been at this game for almost 24yrs with no time off really to speak of. Gotta mix it up.

And yeah, the dumbbell is only 48lbs less than I am ha.

 

There is also truth to what someone else mentioned. Using a really heavy weight makes a slightly lighter(but still heavy) weight seem really light.

I use that a lot when going for higher reps for moderate weight. I'll go really heavy then back way off and it seems like a feather. If i would have grabbed say the 110's after i could have done really slow strict paused reps with it.

 

Here is the last warm up before the 150 for reps.

Did 140 for just 5 reps but you can see they are slower and more controlled before the close to all out top set.
