Here is a killer 45 minute back workout that you can do at home with just a set of dumbbells and a pullup bar. This is an back (lats,latissimus dorsi)workout for the advanced bodybuilder, if you are new to bodybuilding please check my website for a more appropriate workout.
Make sure you have done warm-up sets for both biceps and triceps before starting this workout because we start in with really heavy weights and you don’t want to get injured.
Intensity and focus are really important when you do this workout. Don’t hold back anything, treat every set as if it were your last. I know I sound stupid with all my grunting and groaning but when I give it 110%, I can’t help it. Here is the workout:
Superset 1: Wide grip pullups and dumbbell rows
Superset 2: Alternating grip pullups and dumbbell pullovers
Superset 3: Narrow grip pullups and bent over dumbbell rows
Repeat the above 5-6 times, the complete workout should take about 45 minutes. If you don’t like reconfiguring the dumbbells all the time you can also just do each superset combo 5X and then move on to the next combo. This workout should be done once every 5-7 days depending on your age.
Anyone can be healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and feel better about themselves through bodybuilding. Bodybuilding doesn’t have to be expensive or take a lot of time, gyms are great but home workouts can save you time and money. A cheap dumbbell set from a garage sale or walmart is all it takes to get started with your home workouts.
The pullup is the #1 best exercise for building wide lats. In this video I’m going to show you the proper form to build cobra-wide lats. Just a note here, there are many pullup variants that have goals other than building really wide lats. I’m focusing here on the form you want to use if you want to target lats and build your lats as wide as possible for a great V taper.
If you cant do a single pullup, then please start with pullups for beginner in a previous post.
