Supersets Rows for Back

Here’s a video from this morning’s back workout. Lately I’ve been starting out my back workouts with supersets. This morning I used this technique with plate-loaded rows and regular barbell rows (bent over rows).

Supersetting these exercises really set the tone for the rest of my back workout. It’s a good way to quickly get the blood pumping in the muscle. I also want to share the rest of my workout from this morning in my blog, so here it is:

Back – Biceps – Calves

♦ Plate-Loaded Rows: 3 x 10-12
   superset with
♦ Barbell Rows: 3 x 12

♦ Dumbbell Rows: 3 x 7

♦ Lat Pulldowns: 3 x 10-12
   superset with
♦ Cable Pullovers: 3 x 10-12

♦ Barbell Curls: 3 x 12

♦ Seated Calve Raises: 4 x 10, rest-pause x 50

I was winded after training back, so much that I felt I could only do one exercise for biceps (I’ll hit those again later this week). The supersets really take it out of me. And I usually go pretty heavy for dumbbell rows and that also takes a lot of energy.

I ended with some calves. I went semi-heavy for four sets. After that I lightened the weight and did an extended rest-pause set until I hit a total of 50 reps. I ended my workout with cardio. I was riding the stationary and recumbent bikes for several weeks but now I’m back to walking on the treadmill.

Train with Passion,
