5/23 post shift back pull

Throughout the day anytime I use the restroom on back day I do a set of pull-ups till failure. Doing a heavier workout load at 0100 in the morning is also a bit tricky…

Great quote from legend Tom Platz!

  • Bent bar row 4 sets 4-6 (185) focus keeping back parallel to floor
  • Lat pull down 5 sets 4-6 reps (195)
  • V handle pull down 5 sets 12-15 reps (150)
  • Weighted pull ups (45) drop set 4 sets each till failure. Do your weighted pull ups then drop the weight and do as many as you can.
  1. (My weights)
  2. Rest Pause – rest for 10-15 seconds on your last set then try to get as many reps as you can.
  3. Cannonball sets – use a machine for this. Start low weight and do 8 reps. Increase weight until you can no longer do 8 reps then when you can’t hit 8 drop down to your start weight. Keep going until you can’t do your starting weight.
