Tuesday is Back Day!

Tuesday is back and biceps!!! Woot woot…my favorite day of the week!
[Well, I hate biceps, but LOVE back.]

I love the post and workout below, because it is me in a nutshell. I work and work and work on my back, but never see the “baby back” that I am longing for…and my traps are massive. So…clearly, I need to work on form. I have been doing better on this with my tricep workouts (which were yesterday as a part of chest day), so I will do the same today with back. Incorporating the HIIT, pull ups, mountain climbers, and burpees are also how I am going to keep my heart rate up. And if you haven’t seen it yet, here are my core back exercises. I have also started to incorporate the following as I graduate to more/harder/stronger/better workouts:

It’s hard for me to pick which day of weight training I like best, but for many reasons I love training back! The main reason is because I want to improve on it! It has always been a weaker spot for me and before I started training for my competition I didn’t know why I wasn’t seeing results. That all changed when I started working with my coach. For one, she helped me to become less trap dominant. Apparently I was using WAYYY too much traps during my back and shoulder workouts. We adjusted my form on several lifts so even though I had to go down in weight, I was finally seeing changes and growth in my back. Ever since then I’ve really loved training it because trust me, when you see results, it becomes an addiction.
