It’s the week of Thanksgiving 2012 and what that means for a lot of us is a day or more away from the gym. As for me, I know I’ll be missing my Wednesday and Thursday workouts so I combined my chest and back workouts this morning. These are two muscle groups I rarely combine in one workout because they’re both large upper body muscles. However, I got a pretty good pump in both my chest and back this morning so I figured I would share this chest and back workout with you all in case you’re having to shift your workouts a little this Thanksgiving week. Here we go!
Jason’s Thanksgiving Week Chest and Back Workout:
Incline Barbell Press: 3 sets x 12 reps
Dumbbell Rows: 3 sets x 12 reps
Hammer Strength Incline Press: 3 sets x 12 reps
Rows (with chest-rest): 3 sets x 12 reps
Decline Barbell Press: 3 sets x 12 reps
Hammer Strength Low Rows: 3 sets x 12 reps
Cable Flyes: 3 sets x 12 reps * super set with:
Lat Pulldowns: 3 sets x 12 reps
As you can see I went back and forth between chest and back exercises for this workout. For example, after my 3 sets of incline barbell press I then did my 3 sets of dumbbell rows, and so on. The very last 2 exercises were supersets between cable flyes and lat pulldowns. This chest and back workout took a little over an hour and I hit some calves afterwards then did my usual cardio.
Combining chest and back allowed me to move my leg day up from Wednesday to Tuesday, so I’ll be hitting legs tomorrow. Since I won’t be training Wednesday or Thursday I’ll probably hit arms on Friday and may skip shoulders this week (if there’s one muscle group I have to skip it’s shoulders because you get so much stimulation on chest and back day).
Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
