Back Training

The back is one of the most important part of your body,
and one of the biggest source of strength as well.

It is really important to train your back on a regular basis,
and to train it with different methods mixed together as well.

Different methods will help to balance your strength and flexibility,
through your joints, stabilizers and such.
What I suggest is that you mix heavy compound movements to bodyweight
and moderate weight for 10-15 reps to reach the small but important muscles of the back.

Compound movements will give you the overall strength,
because it involves most of your muscles. Bodyweight training will
provide more mobility and flexibility. It also works your stabilizers a lot,
and so does compound do. If you are not a beginner, adding weight to your
bodyweight is a really good way to challenge yourself and to gain more strength.
Finally, I recommend that you use a moderate weight for 10-15reps for exercises 
that train smaller muscles of your back, wich are really important, mostly for your posture.

Finally, here's a view of my today's back workout:

Warm up:
1) Band pull appart, 3X10
2)Pull ups, 2X10

Workout:
1)BB rows, 4 sets: 1X12, 1X8, 2X5, with as much weight as possible for every sets.
2)Pull ups, 3 sets: 1Xmax, 2Xmax with a 20 pounds db holded by my knee.
3)Seated cable rows, 3X10-12 with a heavy weight.
4)Face pulls, 3X15-20 with a moderate weight.
5)Back extension, 2X10 with a 35 pound KB.
6) sumo deadlifts, 2x10, 1X5.

Leg day


Today was a very hot day, something like 40°C with humitidy factor, but not an excuse not to train!
I got up early, ate a good breakfast(with a shitload of eggs, obviously), and went for a brutal training. Here's how it went:

Warm up: Running with high knees, heels to the ass, and some hill running.

Then, I went for a shitload of carpulls:
4X front car pulls uphill
4X back piddle car pulls.

Then, some heavy leg presses for 4X5, plus a warm-up set.

And finally, 3Xmax reps on heavy box squats, gotta kill those legs!
