I started the 5x5 SL program 2-3 months ago, and have had doubts about the quality of my barbell rows. I do them like Mehdi suggests: http://stronglifts.com/barbell-row/
Though I hear that it can be difficult to really feel it when you start out, I don't feel it in my back, but in my glutes, hams, and my quads, which I think is strange.
I tried doing Yates rows and felt it significantly more in my back.
Why would that be?
If I feel it more with Yates, should I do those instead, or is something still happening with the Pendlay rows even though I can't feel it?
