    Good vid on cable pullovers. Are they better or worse than DB pullovers? I don't really like the awkwardness of DB PO's.

    Back 2 (Pulldowns and rows) Operation Lat Widening!

    1. One arm pulldown towards armpit up to 30kg (66lbs) for 20,19 (heavy set)

    2. Widegrip pulldowns to chin up to 30kg (66lbs) for 20, 20, 19 (normally twice this weight so the first exercise worked!)

    3. Rope standing pullovers up to 15kg (new to this exercise so not pushing it hard and twanging muscles)

    4. One arm DB row up to 32kg (70lbs) for 20, 15 (I pulled with my BACK rather than my ELBOW as I've have been doing wrongly so the weight is less but the pump better)

    5. Barbell row up to 78kg (171lbs) for 7, 8, 8 (I go heavy on these with good safe form but a little body drive, just to finish off the back)

    Where I do 20's that is not a number that I cut off at, more a target to reach where I may normally do 18,19. Hence the number drops off after.

    One arm Pulldown - you really feel this in the lat!

    these have been great for me. Easy on my shoulders. Pump is so much better than lying db pullovers

    Yeah I loved them today. Can you go heavy or are they always a medium finisher?

    Squats

    Up to 80kg (175lbs) for 4's. Leg strength is fine but I can't rush my back as it's not used to being top loaded. Early days.

    I keep them between 12-20 range. Either as a warm up type exercise or a finisher. Too heavy and I'll end up using triceps and chest to pull it.

    Definitely an isolation movement. I feel these more so than a pull down movement actually

    Yes I know what you mean. One of those exercises you try and balance between too light but not too heavy.

    I was doing rope crunches today and they seem to be the same. Too heavy and you'll use more than the abs.

    Bit ragged in places, tried for a sixth but nope. Yes my arms are close in but any wider and my delts get too exposed to the strain. This looks awkward with the 7' bar but it feels fine and controlling it helps my core strength.

    Chest

    1. Decline press - started weak but came back strong.

    2. Incline press - got a personal best 225 for 1!

    The daily pace I'm going feels like I'm hammering my body but aside from injury or exhaustion I'll keep the assault going.

    If it ain't broke DON'T fix it!

    For years I did sinple DB bicep curls and overhead two arm DB extensions. Never any pain. Of course recently i tried adding some other exensions and heavy pushdowns and gave myself severe elbow irritation. Whether they are just bad for me or I went to my heavy weights too quickly I don't know but I've ditched them and gone back to the old school.

    My elbows were wrecked doing 30kg (65lbs) pushdowns and skullcrushers. Here I am doing 47kg (103lbs) with zero elbow pain. Just shows, stick with what works.
