I've been arguing with a buddy of mine about this for a while, maybe you all can shed some light.
Basically, my friend is doing crew (rowing) right now and he has developed a very think and stong back. He exercises with his crew team 4 days a week, basically working back very hard each day since all they do is row. Now in my mind this is extreme overtraining, but him and all of his crew mates have huge strong backs. What gives? How come he can go row for an hour+ 4 times a week and get huge but I do seated row twice a week and have slow gains?
Any thoughts would be muchly appreciated.
