    opposing muscle groups/motions

    lately I have come to feel like my back is seriously lagging behind other groups. I have not seen gains in strength the way I have seen with chest and shoulders especially (legs are a "special" case for me, they are way behind course due to a knee issue but improving fast)

    I began to wonder, in a perfect world, should opposing motions like a t-bar row or bent over row be able to move the same poundage as the opposing movement, a bench press? or lat pull downs and overhead press? etc

    should I set the standard of improvement in my back based on whether or not I'm catching up to chest pressing numbers? or should I ignore all other body parts and judge it by its own unique standards?

    No. A perfect world would be where we don't get injured....


    Ummm Back is my 2nd toughest day (Legs is 1st), I hit 4 exercises, 2 of which are Super Sets. It kills and I sweat the most, but it pays off........

    Whats you're routine like. If its lagging, then you should hit Back when you have the most energy (like after the weekend or something)
    I rep back - but I could have you on recharge
