#THEDAILYGRIND 016: How to Create the Ultimate Back Workout in 5 Steps
Are you looking for the classic V-taper? A back full ridges and valleys that resemble an elevation map of The Pyrannese mountain range? If so, then this blog is aimed squarely at YOU!
If you are anything like me when I first hit the gym, you're excited to hit chest and arms whenever they come around in your training split. After all, who doesn't like big guns and big chest muscles? You pick your best vest from the drawer. You know the one. The one that you think makes you looked super pumped when you stand under the right lighting after those first couple of sets. I'm not ashamed to admit it. I have THAT vest too.
And what do you see when you wake up every morning? I don't mean that bleary eyed version of yourself with the left side of your face creased like a 95 year old grandma. Staring right back at you are those pecs and guns, so naturally they're at the forefront of your mind when it comes to training. You want to look good in the mirror. Who doesn't?
As for your back, well that's just not as 'sexy' to train is it? You never really get to see it unless you've got a couple of mirrors at the right angle. Those back selfies are just too hard to take too.
And what's more, no girl ever commented on the thickness of you rhomboids did they? All the attention is back on those t-shirt shredding arms.
In this article I'm going to break down how to construct the ultimate back workout. There's just 5 simple steps you need to follow to achieve maximum results. Follow this plan to the letter and I guarantee you'll see some significant results in a few weeks time.
