First picture book log on UG. Even my kids can follow along.
I’d like to see your form on those first two
cable movements. Seems too heavy to
be doing them properly.
You don’t need the extra calories in the PB.
Title is confusing, sounds like you, Jin and CJ are sharing a log.
Would be better if, instead of pictures of equipment, you took videos and uploaded them.
Best of luck and thank you for a non political thread
Yeah to add to Jin’s post, if you can only dB row 55lbs, those cable weights seem really off. For example, my 1 arm dB row is 200lbs but my cable lat(less) Pulldowns are only about 220 or 240.
also I’m not a fan of the exercise selection. All of your rows have a neutral grip and all of your Pulldowns have an overhand grip. Pretty redundant
Im sure i can dumbbell row way more not 200 lol but i never do them so i started light to get a feel for the exercise the 180 lat pull down was difficult 160 think is my range to be comfortable with the movement the 190 machine row don’t pay attention to that that machine is super east but hits the back good but trust me you would do a stack of that plus some.
but my back killing me already so i did damage that’s good but i’m interested in what work out regiment you would do
I would do some type of overhand grip row like bent over barbell, bent over smith machine, chest supported tbar (most have that wide overhand grip option something along those lines. This will be primarily rhomboids, rear delts, and lower and mid traps. Then I’d do some type of strict preferably braced/ chest supported neutral grip row. Focus on bringing your humerus down and driving your elbow towards your hip, this will work more iliac fibers/ lower lats. For Pulldowns I’d do a pulldown like the one you used for more upper back muscles like rhomboids and mid to lower traps and probably rotate it with or do both a strict (keep back neutral, no arch and no swing) neutral grip (or underhand if you have the range of motion) pulldown again thinking drive elbows towards hips rather then upper chest for overall lats. If you look up Paul Carter on t-nation, he has some great articles on back training,
I took the time and found the article I was thinking about. Does a great job of teaching mechanics and picking the right movements for the job.
Bro you need like a super elite tag seriously. Thank you for taking your time next back day I will refer back to my diary here and your comment and use this advice. Only issue I will have will be with the bent over stuff that’s not chest supported due to knee issues and not being comfortable but i just have to man up and look stupid for a bit until I learn proper technique on the bent over rows cause i know i need to be doing those
thanks man, if you need to, I’d go hard on a chest supported piece and then do some bent over rows light and just focusing on squeezing and learning the form. For the chest supported my first two choices would be either a chest supported tbar or if you don’t have access to one hammer strength makes a pretty good plate loaded seated row that you can use.
need someone to teach me proper technique otherwise i’ll mess my self up
how you put videos on here ?
