Hi Everyone! I posted a workout video on to my YouTube channel of my back workout. I wanted to compliment it with a blog entry. The exercises are listed below along with the link to my video.
- Dumbbell Row: Lean over a bench with a dumbbell in your hand. Start with your arm straight. Then pull your arm up towards you by retracting your shoulder blades. Pause and hold. Then slowly lower your arm. Repeat 3 sets of 15.
- Barbell Deadlifts: Start with your feet underneath the bar about hip width apart. Bend down and hold the bar with a tight grip. Raise the bar slowly. Once you pass your knees drive your hips forward into the bar. Hold for a moment. Then slowly lower the bar back down. Repeat 3 sets of 15.
- Pull Ups: Grab ahold of the pull up bar with your palms facing forward. As you hold onto the pull up bar, lower your body until your arms are extended with a slight bend. Pause and hold. Then pull your body upward until your chest just barely touches the pull up bar. Repeat 3 sets of 15.
- Face Pulls: Using a cable system, adjust the pulley to your height. Be sure to use the rope attachment. Then using both hands pull the weight towards your face. Pause and hold. Then slowly lower back. Repeat 3 sets of 15.
- Seated Cable Row: For this exercise use the v-bar attachment. Start by sitting down on the row machine and place your feet on the platform in front of you. Lean over and grab the attachment. Pull the weight towards you until you almost touch your abdominals. Pause and hold. Then slowly lower back. Repeat 3 sets of 15.
- Wide Lateral Pulldown: Grab the bar with your palms facing forward. Use a wide grip. As your arms are extended above, lean back about 30 degrees. Pulldown the bar until it barely touches the top of your chest. Pause and hold. Then slowly raise the bar back to where you started. Repeat 3 sets of 15.
