    This.

    I look at it like I did earning my CDL: it is just a foot in the door, the real learning happens when you do it in real time

    ISSA because it was self paced, and included nutritionist so I didn’t have to do that separately. Also had CPR/AED, and my AHA cert was about to expire so it came in handy.

    What is the point of doing a workout, before your workout?

    Anyway. Not sure if OP is still listening but here is something I program for upper body days for clients.

    One day will have a lat-focused row, like this “J” row:

    Of course isometrics work…

    At long muscle lengths. Hence why squats don’t do diddly for hamstrings since they don’t change length in the movement.

    Also, no one is saying the back isn’t...

    ftfy :)

    But without a squat rack…

    Hacks are a decent alternative.

    Might I suggest a pair of squat stands?

    Anything past 80s I always make sure one of my training partners will be there so they can hand one off to me. That is for high incline or overhead work. Incline bench I kinda kick them back into...

    I’ve always done bent over raises like that. But it is easier to do on a pec deck.

    Most people fail at the lower back because a couple of reasons. Like losing form because the weight is too heavy,...

    It isn’t that deadlifts aren’t a great back isolation, they aren’t even a great back compound.



    The erectors are really easy to build. 3 muscles groups further divided into 3 even smaller...

    That is fair.

    When I think back, I think the same for every other muscle group: how can I produce enough mechanical tension as possible, and shorten and lengthen the muscles as much as possible...

    It really isn’t though.

    All one has to do is look at what is doing the most work in an exercise, ie the prime mover, to determine what the target of that exercise is.

    You would also have to...

    The prime mover in any deadlift is not any of the back muscles. It is the glutes and hamstrings.

    Nothing maximally lengthens, and nothing at all shortens. Not the traps. Not the rhomboids. Not...

    I use wraps on my work sets. Do I have to? Probably not. But why not?

    Using straps feels like cheating? Mixed grip accomplishes the same thing: they allow you to lift more weight than you could otherwise hold.

    I’d just get a set of straps or tape your thumbs.

    I like to pause at the top of back work, mostly to assure myself I used my actual back muscles to move the weight vs heaving the the weight up like 99% of people out there.

    Other than that, I’ll...

    Mostly this ^

    But more importantly how would you know they aren’t tracking?

    I know a few people who can literally remember everything they did during a session.
