Pumped Back

Pumped Back Workout

Happy Monday everyone! There’s a smile on my face at about 4:20AM on Monday mornings because I know I’m about to go train some back, and I love my back workouts! I remember how difficult it seemed to get my back pumped and feel the muscle working when I was younger. But over the years I’ve learned how to connect my mind with the muscle during my back workouts. And once you learn that, you grow to embrace back training.

I actually got to the gym a little late this morning. The Walking Dead finale was extended 31 minutes later than usual, so of course I had to stay up for that. I only had time for back and cardio (no calves today).

Today’s back workout was a bit more challenging. We went canoeing yesterday and I did the majority of the paddling. So my back, traps, and biceps got some extreme high rep training for about 4 hours on the water. Granted, the current carried us but we had to maneuver through a lot of debrisĀ along the way, so it was indeed a workout. That being said, I didn’t train as heavy but rather did more reps and kept moving.

I may actually throw in a second back workout this week, around Thursday. I’d like to hit some dumbbell rows and barbell rows. I have no problem cutting down my shoulder workout to fit in some more back exercises.

Train with Passion,
