Life after the stack

Hi, just a question you guys could help me with, I do seated rows on the cable fly machine and pull downs, I can manage the full stack, do I pin up some weight, up the reps or pick another exercise?
Regards

    Are you doing the full stack with strict form ? If not, reduce weight and improve technique. If you are move to something that doesn't involve cables.

    go from dual handed to single hand rows
    i share your pain....
     
    after that try and see if the pin will allow a 20kg or even a 10kg plate to be added on. If not, fabricate your own pin in a metal workshop, place it mid-stack and add 20kg to it....get a PT rushing over to you moaning about 'elf and safety and then get into a big argument...
     
    yup, been there

    really tighten form to ultra strict, use more reps, pre-exhaust the target muscle first, do supersets or giant sets, use free weights

    ^ Seconded.
     
    In most gyms you'll see plenty of full-stack warriors with horrible form who can barely do a single pull up.
