Pre-ex + what 2 exchange Stiffarm pull downs with?

I'm on the "getting ripped revised routine" and I do the suggested pre-exhausting methods. My question is, is it really neccessary to do 2 sets of 40? Is there another way to approach pre-exhausting without having to do that many reps!! It was fun at first as a change up in routine but now it's just damn annoying to do those exercises that make it look like i'm following an 80s work out video, I feel like I should be in spandex and listening to Paula Abdul!!

Next question.
I do 2 sets of 40 of these to prexhaust, for some reason, I'm guessing b/c I am too tall for the cable machine and can not get a full stretch, but it feels this exercise is isolating my triceps. what can I do do pre-exhaust my lats instead of this exercise?
Thanks in advance for any help.

    You could do barbell pullovers.
