  • Favorite Upper Back Exercises

    Building off of Claire's recent IG post, what are your favorite upper back exercises for GPP purposes? Are you implementing any particular exercises as you prepare for your meet?

  • #2
    My favorites are:

    Barbell Rows off of a GHR
    Lat Pull Down
    Seated Row
    T-bar row
    1-arm DB row
    chins and pull ups

    I'm doing mostly lat pull downs and seated rows to save myself any low back or elbow fatigue unrelated to the big 3.

          In a single set I've done 24 and the most weight I've done for a pull up is BW + 135lbs.

            how do these lessen elbow fatigue? neutral grip?

              Using a lighter weight for a given rep range for me and greater degree of freedom than a straight-bar chin or pull-up.
