I wanted to share this workout with you that I did last Friday morning.
This was the second time I’ve done it (with just a couple of modifications), and I’m telling you, this workout is awesome.
It involves 4 separate blocks (A,B,C,D), each with 3 exercises (1,2,3), done with minimal rest between sets for a maximized pump and engorgement of the muscles.
If you’re not familiar with the exercises, watch this video:
Big Back Workout
A1. Pull-ups – 3×10
A2. Dips – 3x 10-20
A3. Ab Wheel – 3×10
B1. Pull-downs – 3×10-12
B2. Front Laterals – 3×10
B3. Crucifix – 3x15sec
C1. Reverse Curl – 3×8-12
C2. Prone Pull-downs – 3×12-15
C3. Band Face Pulls – 3×15
D1. Unilateral Pull-aparts – 3x10each side
D2. Belly Pull-ups – 3×5
D3. Chain Hammer Curls – 3×15
As you’ll notice, there’s a lot more than “Back” exercises in there. I had to modify this workout quite a bit because my Chest/Shoulder/Biceps workout got interrupted last week, and I wasn’t able to get my Biceps or Deltoid work in. I added these in where I’d normally have my other Triceps exercises (I only did one pure Triceps exercise, Dips).
I’m gonna be straight up with you here – you can’t mess around between sets with this workout, or you won’t get it all done.
A lot of people will not be able to get this workout done inside of an hour, like my buddy Mark and I did.
In fact, a lot of people are not in shape enough to do all of this PERIOD, let alone inside an hour.
If you can’t finish the workout, don’t worry about it. Work on it.
We’ve been training this way for a while, and while it’s intense, I truly feel this is a great way to train, especially on days when you don’t have strength-specific work (requires longer rest periods), and are only looking at building slabs of muscle all over your body.
Like I said, if you don’t know the exercises, check out this video, because all of them but 2 are in there:
Any questions, please let me know.
All the best in your training.
P.S. I just completed something I worked on all last week. It’s a complete Catalog Page of all my products, many of which you might never have heard of, so I wanted to share it with you: Full Diesel Product Catalog
Many of the prices on that page are newly reduced, so be sure to check them out.
