Blast Strap Rows

I did 2 distinct form variations today with the GM's. The no-belt sets were done with the fullest ROM possible without rounding the lower back. My back was approximately horizontal when I began the concentric.

The belted sets were done with more of a power-style. By this I mean that there wasnt as much rotation and the form mimicked the squat more closely. During the eccentric phase I tilted the torso until the bar was close to being in front of the toes. I think both styles are great. The power-style GM's allow you to place a heavier load on the body and translate more to your competition squat. The full-ROM GMs are excellent for higher rep assistance and overall muscle development.
