Congrats on the rep spot Breezy!
Do you have recommdations regarding bringing up lagging rear delts? My right is significantly smaller than the left after tommy john surgery... That's a goal of my gaining phase and was wondering if you recommend higher frequency or any particular exercise you like. I've been doing a lot of face pulls, rear cable fly's etc

Rear delt destroyer sets! Breezy has done em I believe. They're brutal.

Another exercise I enjoy that I picked up from Matt is a destroyer set lying face down on an incline bench (start pretty heavy for 30-40 reps, drop the weight considerably, 20-25 reps, and drop again and finish with 10-20 reps).

Rear delts are my specialty . I have a lot of different ways to torture them, which have really helped round out my shoulders over the last couple of years. I'll go through my videos when I get home tonight and post some up.

tomorrow is pull power, so focusing predominantly on strength before i get into the isolation stuff
what do you recommend as the best compound back lift? i've never really gotten into barbell rows, although that's gotta change starting tomorrow. I'm just not good at them so i'd avoid them but i hate that mentality. i usually do weighted chins, iso lateral high row, and t-bar row's for my "strength" movements

Swol, you tried BB rows on the smith?
08-13-2014, 09:49 PM
Have not. Perhaps that'll be better to start than a normal BB? I saw breezy posted a video before of them

Easily the best exercise I've discovered in the last year

I think it's MrBrz11. You can open up any of the videos that I posted and it'll take you to the channel.

Same boat as LiveToLift. I'll be reading that article and trying it out again. Thanks breezy

I got in a secondary leg session this morning. It was pretty simple, but beat up my legs good, especially my quads.
I started with lying leg curls, moved on to adductor/abductor machines, and finished with a lot of leg extensions supersetted with heel elevated dumbbell squats.
Leg Extensions/Heel Elevated DB Squats: I did 8 rounds of this combo. They started out fairly easy, quickly became a challenge, and were torture during the last few rounds. Some extensions sets were done with toes pointed back to focus on the upper quad and others had toes pointed forward to put an emphasis on the lower quad. I think this shows rounds 2, 4, and 5. I made it through the first 6 rounds without pausing, but needed a couple seconds rest to complete the squats on the final 2.

Great videos and explanations as always Breezy, had my wife hammer out a few sets of rows on my Smith this morning.
She had a lot easier time keeping a strait back and felt it hitting her upper back as opposed to lower
Think it's great in that it can help a beginner like her with form but is also great for experienced lifters to use big weight, I just added them in myself a month ago and weight progression is back on track where I had stalled previously
Loving the Smith machine pointers here, always train alone so I rely on it on power days

Thanks man. Nice, rowing on the Smith could help lessen the chance of using your entire body to move the weight (if you do, it'll definitely feel uncomfortable). BB rows are a movement that people have a tendency to use way more weight than they should with. Those same people would probably feel their back take twice the beating if they cut the weight in half and actually worked the target muscle(s). With the Smith, you can easily adjust your positioning/angle to target different areas of the back as well.
Awesome. Sounds like it could be helping you zero in on your lats, which could be resulting in increased strength.
No problem. I'm usually training alone as well, so it's nice to have the extra safety. I rarely train to failure with heavy weight/lower reps though.

My PeptoPro should be here tomorrow. I'll probably go 2 scoops Amino IV watermelon, a pink lemonade high volume and the PeptoPro and HBCD. The combo of pink lemonade high volume + watermelon amino IV is unreal
