I understand what you are saying about strength but you are assuming that "more weight" always means "better results". And that is not always true whether for strength OR hypertrophy.

Like I've said before..if you want to be a row champion you can worry more about just weight on the bar. But of course I know that is not what you want. The row is a tool. You have other movements that you consider the 'test of success' and the row is is just an ingredient...not one of the main dishes.

So think of deloaded rows like the spices in your pumpkin pie. Go too heavy on any one of them and the pie sucks. Sprinkle in a bit of each and you get the perfect flavor balance.

Whereas other things...that's the pumpkin.

There is always going to be the guy who continues to say that cinnamon is better than nutmeg of course. But he obviously doesn't know how to cook
I understand what you mean by 'more weight' not always meaning 'better results'. Weight on the bar is only one method of progression.

I like the analogy, but now I'm very hungry.
