Yeah same. Ive started doing Supine Body rows, they freakin suck. Find a rack, place a bar in the rack, jack your feet up till your feet are higher than your upper body, grasp said bar and pull till your chest meets the bar. In my opinion, those suck worse than Pullups. Its alot easier to do them weighted as well.

How does it compare to wide grip pull ups?

The amount of half-wits that come and try and boost their ego next to me is crazy . They load up plates on plates on plates and then proceed to squat MAYBE quarter depth. On tuesday someone did that to me and I was chuckling to myself as I went ATG. Thats my one big gym pet peeve. I just cant stand it.

"IMHO" its alot better for your shoulders than wide-gip pullups. Its really easy to get a shoulder impingement doing those. Your whole body weight is placed upon already stressed shoulder joints. No bueno.

Yep... it happens everywhere.  I mostly see it at my gym with younger guys, but it's not limited to them.

 

There's this one dickbag... total tool, real jerk to everyone...  we all laugh at him because every single exercise he does, he does half reps.

 

He's doing nothing.

 

He looks the same now that he did 5 years ago.

 

 

If he wasn't such an asshole about using the machines and working in on sets to everyone, we'd probably point it out... but we just like to stand back and watch him do nothing.

They are the same people that will do fifty crunches then lift their shirt and look in the mirror.

I respect someone how only lifts the bar with good form and full range of movement than some dipshit that does a 1/2 rep
