BACK AT IT.

07/07/17 - ..... that's a lot of 7's...

 

What's going on guys? It's Friday even though it doesn't feel like it because of the holiday.. either way, I hope everyone is having(or had, depending on when you read this..) a FANFREAKINGTASTIC Friday. Hit back today at el gym. One quick tip on training back is to not go too heavy... See the thing is that if you feel like your biceps are getting more of a workout than your back.... then they probably are. 

Every pulling movement (training back) Your biceps are the secondary muscle to assist in the exercises.

on the contrary, every push movement(ie: pushup, bench press, shoulder press, etc), your triceps are the secondary muscle to assist. 

 

So going back to training your back, make sure you're really feeling the contraction in your back. Connecting the mind-muscle is more difficult when training back because you can't see it while you're training it. So focus on pulling with your back by going lighter if your biceps feel like they're doing most of the work!

2 OPTIONS EVERY SINGLE DAY. MAKE EXCUSES OR STRIVE TO DO BETTER.

Let's be real...we all know there's only one option. Keep striving.
