Day 58 Back - KAGED MUSCLE

Day 58 Back

We will be training our back today, another large muscle group. It’s normal to have interplay between some of the muscles used in yesterday’s leg workout and today’s workout because they’re large muscle groups both connecting with each other.  You might notice it on exercises like the deadlift. Don’t focus on the soreness of the muscles you trained yesterday such as your hamstrings. Make the reps count and focus on the mind-muscle connection so you target your back. Make the reps count and think of the function of the exercise, so that you get quality reps.

Today’s workout is simple. We’ll be performing straight sets of some compound and isolation exercises. While the back consists of numerous muscles, we’ll mostly be focused on our lats today. Well developed lats help develop the “x-frame” which makes your waist look smaller. Building out this x-frame will really make your transformation noticeable. The back is a complex muscle group, you can’t hit it with just one or two movements, so we change the angles and do various exercises this workout.

We’ll start out with wide grip lat pull downs followed by wide grip chin ups to failure and then neutral grip chin ups to failure. Remember to keep your chest up when you’re pulling on your chin ups, squeeze at the top and really work the negative on each rep as well.

Next, we’ll be doing neutral grip bent over rows followed by shrugs. If you don’t have a machine in your gym like the one, we use for these two exercises in the video, find a suitable alternative to this machine. We’ll also be doing staggered grip deadlifts in today’s workout, keep your back flat and your head aligned as you pull up when you perform this exercise. We’ll finish this workout up with single arm rows. Make sure you keep your form tight and emphasize your lat muscles when you do this exercise. It can be easy to cheat on these and use momentum, but I want you to focus on the quality of the movement rather than the weight.

Gethin’s Go To

Keep adding intensity whilst you’ve got vapors in your tank to get the most out of every rep and the most out of every workout. Danielle had a little extra in the tank today, so she chose to take her single arm rows to drop sets. Make sure you leave nothing in the tank at the end of your workout. By pushing yourself to train at your highest intensity possible, you’ll get the most of each workout in this trainer. A benefit of training at a high intensity is that you raise the overall level that you’re able to train at in subsequent training sessions.
