    Got another noob question.

    Had a session with a personal trainer who has competed before, not sure of results. He has been lifting for many years. He was showing me T Bar rows and i wanted to know how many people do them like this.

    He was telling me to start the movement keeping back about 45degrees and when putting the weight back down to floor to extend arms a bit which causes the back to move a bit down and when lifting at the top of the movement to lean a bit back so you get bigger range of motion.
    On youtube a lot of people say to keep back completely parallel and not move back at all just stay stationary.

    eg this guy says to keep back stationary

    How To: T-Bar Row - YouTube

    (same grip/attachment)
    Thoughts? fwiw it felt good and I got a good pump.

    1. Listen to experienced peoples advice
    2. Don't be afraid to find out what works best for YOU

    I prob keep a bit more than 45 but that's what's I feel what works best for me, neutral spine, let lats stretch at the bottom, retract scapula at the top. That's just me.
    Little variations can make a big difference to an exercise but if you don't feel a certain movement is effective the worst that can happen is you cross it off your list. But refer to #1.

    No doubt it's a great exercise. I sometimes prefer to just hold the bar 2 handed. My broscience opinion is that its less lats more middle back...don't hate...

    noob question.

    When doing close grip bench press do you lower the bar under your pecs or above pecs?
    i am aware you need to keep elbows tucked and do full rom but confused about bar placement. Monsters on youtube say below pecs and my trainer who is swole says upper pec area

    Below for me.
    Mine push off midway between pec and navel so the elbows are at 90 at the bottom and the wrists are straight.

    same for me here but i guess alot of it has to do with how you feel the movement working, different torso length to arm length ratio MAY play a role. I would try it for a set in a few different ranges of motion to see what makes your tricep feel more worked.

    that seems to be what everyone is saying =/. Wonder why this guy keeps saying upper pec? Maybe to use more weight, and then iso each triicep head with cables and db? will ask him and in mean time secretly do it below pec lol

    thank you

    Am i only one who is newbie on here ><

    Have another question. I have lost about 15kg in last 5 months, however i havent seen much of a change over last month.
    Consuming 2600 calories
    my macros are 30p / 50c / 20f percent% or 190p / 260carbs / 54fats (might be bit off weird numbers rounded up/down)

    A trainer i see once a week told me to keep the calories the same because being new i could lean out a bit and make noob gains. I am overweight but not obese have made some gains but not much.
    Is his approach standard or do most people cut to see abs first then bulk up?

    You don't need to cut to the point where you can see your abs, cut to a level that you feel comfortable at. If its a goal to see your abs then do it, if they don't matter that much to you, then just cut to a point where you feel lean enough. If you're planning on serious bulking you won't see them for long anyway!
