Is this a sufficient back routine to counteract benching?
I'm about 10 weeks into a 3x5 routine.
B - Deadlift, squat, press
A - Bench and squat.
I ditched the Pendlay rows early on, about 4 weeks in because I didn't want my back to snap up.
Since then I've replaced them with dumbell rows on a bench and cable face-pulls with a rope.
8-12 reps on the row and 10-15 with the face-pull for 3 -4 sets after benching. Is that enough?
I was thinking on adding in some kind of Yates row or bent over barbell row so I can use more weight but not sure?
Basically, is a pendlay row for strength, necessary to counter balance benching for strength?
