    Saw someone lay on a bench with their head hanging off looking up at the ceiling, put a plate on their head and and start training their neck...

    Was amusing to watch

    Literally every day I see females struggling to do a barbell glute bridge, when there is a specific setup 10 feet away that is the exact same exercise without the faff of loading and balancing a bar
    Clearly just copying their social media idols without actually knowing the purpose of the exercise

    I think they activate the teres major and minor to much instead of working lats. Or my form could be shite but I also prefer rows using free weights.

    It's better than the wrestlers Bridge exercise which in my opinion is just dangerous. I've used a neck harness at home. Neck is indirectly trained with other stuff but I understand some need to train it directly.

    If you look at Vince Girondas training, for lats he used pulldowns cable rows at various angles. I always lean back when doing pull downs. I feel it better. End of the day Barbell rows..nough said ..the king of lat builders.
