The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Since you two seem to have the knack for building a monster back, especially your lats, I was wondering if you could give me an idea of what you do for your lats, my current routine consists, of t-bar rows, pull-ups, wide-grip pull-downs, seated cable rows, and one-arm d-bell rows, any input would be appreciated.
    May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

    Why do all that?

    Doing a vertical row and horizontal row would suffice.

    I've seen so much improvement on a "3-course meal" type of back plan. Basically what chicken daddy said.

    1 horizontal movement
    1 vertical movement
    + once you put it all together, tear it all apart with deadlifts.

    You can still be natural and have a great back!

    Go to the anabolics forum and check out Sineps rear lat spread and also Franksters.. They are both great and they are very young and surely are gonna be bigger

    Anyway back on to the q my back is improving at the moment so I'll throw in my routine..

    Weight assisted chins : 3 x 6-8
    Deadlifts : 3 x 6-8
    T Bar Rows : 2/3 x 6-8

    Just a pup - This is what I did for my last back workout:

    Deadlift - 2 sets
    Pull Ups - 4 sets
    Barbell Row - 3 sets
    Rear delts - 2 sets

    All sets(upper back) taken to ABSOLUTE failure. Before pull ups, I do a couple light warmup sets on the pull down machine.

    out of everything mentioned, i had the BEST success with bent bb rows, when i began to do these; my back exploded. go real heavy and use overhand grip; this not only develops your lats but your traps and forearms too.

    Sorry Guys. Ive been on a training course all week.

    Deadlifts
    Chins
    T-Bar rows.

    Thats all you need. Maybe add a couple of others too, for variation.

    Thanks for all the replies guys, I may tweek my routine around a little, i'll definitely do the chins, t-bars, and bent over rows. I'd do the deads, but i do them on leg day.

    By the way Gary, i do have good genetics, it would be nice if you could say something positive for a change instead of being such a cackerot.
    May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

    Yate's and Hulk's routine looks really good!

    The only exercises you really need are deadlifts, bb or T-Bar rows, and chins IMO.

    NEVER forget deadlifts.
