Back Attack

Fitness ∙ Tags: , ∙ Posted on: October 13, 2014

This workout focuses on building a muscular back, targeting a lot of middle back/lats. The key to this workout is performing each exercise slowly and as always, form is crucial.

There is no specific warm-up for this workout. I normally add cardio on back day, so my warm-up is short and sweet (sometimes cardio is my warm-up if I do it in the beginning). Since this is mainly an upper body day, I suggest warming up with push-ups and/or pull-ups along with a couple of minutes of agility work (high knees, butt kicks, short sprint build-ups). I added a 15 minute HIIT cardio at the end as an example of what I would normally do. I suggest giving it a try!
