A BETTER BACK WORKOUT
The upper back deserves more attention. Sure, it’s important for posture and shoulder health, but it’s also a sign that you know what you’re doing in the gym. Try a couple of these training methods in your next back workout. You’ll feel better, look better, and get stronger.
BUT FIRST, DON’T DO WHAT YOU’RE TEMPTED TO DO
When training the upper back, many try to go as heavy as possible, which means they sacrifice form for plates. Instead, focus on intention throughout the entire range of motion, maintain that intensity, and own the exercise.
When average lifters go lighter, they’ll tell you it’s too easy, or they don’t feel anything. But, in reality, they’re going through the motions with no purpose. They don’t know how to make light weight feel heavy, which is a skill most jacked people have mastered. Keep this in mind when testing out these five methods below.
Strategy 1: ▶️ Use Resistance Bands
Strategy 2: ▶️ Use The Sled
Strategy 3: ▶️ Use Micro Plates or Dumbbells
Strategy 4: ▶️ Use Suspension Straps
Strategy 5: ▶️ Hold Steady or Alter the Tempo
