Improve your upper back & lower lats! - Straight arm incline barbell front raises (belly on bench) for lower traps
- Incline reverse Flies (belly on bench) for rhomboids & mid traps
- Horizontal rows to chest for same as above
- face pulls from time to time, while kneeling and pulling cable rope from top position for rhomboids, mid & lower traps.
- already had decent upper traps from deadlifting so didn't really target them.
I've been doing the following exercises a lot lately and im starting to see improvement, progressing really quick.
Key: Learn how to retract the Scapula properly (Google it if needed!) and only then do then exercise! Initiate with the muscle you want to target.
Lower lats: Yates rows! Barbell rows but at a steeper Angle, hand placement shoulder-width or slightly within and pull the bar to your crotch! Pull with your elbows, not with your biceps. Your arms are hooks. You are pulling with your lats!! #back#rhomboids#traps#lats#lowerlats#fittervlaanderen#basicfitbe#fitbelgium#bicep#tricep#delts#gainingweightiscool#health#fitness#gymrat#fitfam#fitdutchies#xxlnutrition#tips#gains#cutting#bulking#maninthemirror#aboutdatlifestyle
BEAT YOUR LAST YOU!
The only competitor that you have to beat on a daily basis is YOURSELF!
Do never compare yourself with anybody else, never! I've done that in the past and that put a lot of unnecessary pressure on me which did more harm than good.🤦🏻♂️
The problem with trying to beat the other person is that you don't know their situation, you don't know their past and most importantly, you don't know in which chapter in life they already are.
By focusing on beating your last YOU, you know exactly what you have to do!
DO MORE THAN YOU DID ON YOUR LAST PERFORMANCE!
If it is in Fitness, Business or Relationship. Whatever area you wanna focus on. Do that!
You will be amazed how far you can go if you do that each day and for the rest of your life!
#transformationtuesday May 2016 ➡️ July 2017
Been working on that hour glass figure for the past year, and really tryna get #slimthick 😅 this meant weight gain, challenging myself to heavier lifts, and adding more variety to my workout routine. I can not tell you how much mental health plays a role with body transformation. Do things that make your mind AND body feel good. You aren't going to continue a regime you don't enjoy. Lift heavy weights if you love it, go to a Zumba class for cardio if ya tryna get down ( dancing is my cardio I absolutely love it), or do some yoga. I had to work on confidence within myself, and loving who I am, in order to get to the gym and have the confidence to try new things. I used to workout for other people-guys I wanted to impress, social media, etc. You need to find that fire inside yourself.. when you start making progress inside and out is when you start working out for YOU.
I took a long break from all music I rarely have been posting on all social media and i have stopped for a while on my music but now im ready to be back got goals set in place and we will be moving Spectrum in a whole other place 🔥
Releasing a few new things soon got a live mix coming again and who knows where its going this time 👀
Dr. Marc Cohen in my opinion is the best back surgeon in New Jersey. My staples were removed today and I’m healing nicely. Many thought it was a small procedure because I was on my feet so quickly. I attached my x-rays as proof of the quality and care this doctor gave me. You want an excellent back specialist call him at 973-538-4444. #back#specialist#best#nj #🙌🏼👊🏼
