Get a Big Back

Break cable rows into two parts. Hold the bar with your
arms outstretched and squeeze your shoulder blades together.
Then pull the bar to your body.

Build Real Strength

Don't use machine weights exclusively. A study at Georgia State University
found that older adults using exercise machines improved their strength on
the machines an average of 34 percent in 2 years. But their strength
measures for everyday activities actually declined 3.5 percent.

Skip Tendinitis

Use a shoulder-width grip when doing upright rows. Unlike the
traditional narrow grip, it'll help you avoid shoulder-impingement
syndrome—an injury that causes tendinitis and bursitis.

Have a great weekend!

Avoid Burnout

To see if you're overtraining, check your pulse first thing in the
morning the day after a workout. If it's 10 beats per minute or
more above normal, your body is still recovering.

Improve Your Max

Before you try a maximal lift, load the bar with a weight that's 20 to 30
percent heavier than what you think you can handle. Then simply lift it
off the rack, hold for 1 to 2 seconds, and put it back. Wait 3 to 4 minutes,
then try your true max—the weight will feel noticeably lighter. Never attempt
this without a spotter.
