Bodyweight Rows For A Bigger Back.

I’m a big believer of including bodyweight exercises in your workouts to help maximize muscle growth. Exercises where you move your entire body through space are much more demanding and provide a greater amount of nero-muscular activation then exercises where you just move your limbs.

This is why squats are harder then leg presses, pull ups harder then pull downs, etc.

One of my favorite bodyweight exercises for building a wide muscular back is chin ups or pull ups. For years my back workouts would often include up to 50 reps of pull ups. I’d do sets of 5-10 reps using different grips until I completed 50 total reps.

But this past January I suffered a serious muscle tear in my teres major and tricep tie in area and this has really hindered my back workouts. In fact I haven’t been able to do a full pull up with my bodyweight in over 7 months because it is just too much stress on my previously torn muscles.

I’ve been looking for an alternative exercise that combines the benefits of bodyweight movements and will still allow me to work my back intensely without over stretching my muscles. And the exercise that I came up with is bodyweight rows.

They are almost like doing an inverted push up. Bodyweight rows are to your back, what push ups are to your chest.

To set up for this exercise I like to use the smith machine and set the bar so that it is about waist height. I’ll then place a flat exercise bench about 4-5 feet away from the smith machine bar. The smith machine works best because the bar will be solid and stay in place during the entire exercise.

Get in position by gripping the bar with a slightly wider then shoulder width grip and place your feet on the exercise bench. Keeping your body straight, row yourself up until your chest touches the bar and then lower yourself to the starting position and repeat.

The benefits of this exercise is that it works muscles of the back hard and will allow you to perform more reps then you could with regular pull ups because the mechanics of the exercise place you in a stronger position and you are not lifting your entire bodyweight.

You should give bodyweight rows a try for your next back workout. They work great as either an overall back warm up exercise or as a finishing movement to really pump up the lats at the end of your workouts.

BIG 5 FAT BURNING EXERCISES

posted by admin on October 14th, 2009

CLICK HERE for a FREE WORKOUT!!
http://www.turbulencetraining.com

Recently I was asked what the top 5 fat burning exercises are for fat loss, and I sort of cheated on the answer. I don’t have 5 exercises, but I do have 5 specific movements that are the best for a fat burning workout.

These movements should be in all total body workouts if you have time.

First is any type of squatting movement. So this can be barbell squats, dumbbell squats, bodyweight squats, single leg squats, and can even be split squats. Further, this should be the first exercise in a total body fat
burning workout.

Try any exercise where there is a bending of the hips, pushing the butt down to parallel or lower to the floor, and come back up nice and strong. My favourite total body fat burning exercise is barbell squats, but if you don’t have equipment, you can use bodyweight squats for bodyweight interval training.

Also, deadlifts are a great squatting movement, but these also fall into the category of a pulling exercise, so you can use this exercise in either category (or cover two categories with just one total body exercise).

Second is a pushing movement. This can be bench press, push press, any type of push up, or a dumbbell press. Ideally, you will want to choose an exercise that is total body. I prefer push-ups or heavy presses because you
get more out of that exercise than what you would get from a cable cross over for the chest for example.

Third is any type of pulling movement. This can be a rowing movement or a vertical pulling movement. Examples of this type of movement include; pull-ups, chin-ups, inverted rows, bodyweight deadlifts, dumbbell rows, seated rows, barbell rows. In this type of movement you are getting a lot of musculature movement.

Fourth is a single leg movement. So, this can be a lunge, split squat, single leg squat, stability ball leg curl, lying 1-leg hip extension, or a Bulgarian split squat.

Fifth is any type of total body abdominal exercise. This can be a hanging leg raise, cable crunch, mountain climbers, spiderman climbs, stability ball jackknife. Basically any abdominal exercise where you are not lying on the ground and curling up two inches.

So those are my BIG FIVE movements. If you only have a limited amount of time and can only get through the first 3 exercises, you’ll still be getting a great workout. As well, these exercises can be done in either a circuit fashion or in straight sets, perfect for a total body workout.

A dumbbell circuit would start with dumbbell squats, then dumbbell chest presses, then rows, then lunges, and then a plank exercise. You obviously don’t need the dumbbell for the plank. You could also do split squats or Bulgarian split squats for the single leg dumbbell exercise.

A sample fat burning bodyweight exercise workout circuit would start with bodyweight squats, followed by pushups, then inverted rows, split squats, and finish off with mountain climbers. Thats a great total body workout without equipment.
