sounds like good stuff. I like trying stuff for a mix up.
I did a little superset program at the gym friday,
I mixed up pulley rows 15-12-10-8-6 reps 2-2-2-2-1 sets with
close gripped and parallel front pull downs
15-12-10 reps 2-2-1 sets..
These two combined make a good exercise to hit my back muscles and did trapizus shrugs on the hip flexor chair as a break with back extensions..
I then do weighted tricep dips 6 x 10 reps with 33lbs of weight with chin ups 9 x 5 reps on smith machine bar.
I do dumbbell pullovers supersetted with one arm rows. Then a pyramid set of cable crossovers.
I smack this all together with leg exercises in between and I am getting my upper chest results..
I don't as yet have the power to do wide arm pull ups, but this is my next years long goal..
When doing another area of my body I found a neat little exercise for the butt and legs from a body building lady I know back home in New Zealand.
She does plie squats with a good amount of dumbbell weight and then gets nasty with one leg one a step doing them uneven each side, this hits her butt and thighs real mean.. She looks wow when ripped.
I follow her instructions alot as she has terrible rheumatoid arthritis and her husband has modified her home gym and hand weights so she doesn't drop heavy stuff.
Looking at this lady you wouldn't tell she has many bad days and sometimes has to give training a miss.. She is a personal trainer and has two small kiddies so I love reading up her techniques.
I love visiting the New Zealand body building page, the lady running it is just finishing off a PhD which is dedicated to researching the experiences of competitive bodybuilders..
