    Back Volume

    I do a pretty significant amount of sets for what I count as “back”—29 sets per week—and I’m feeling that I might need to cut down because I’m not doing too hot with pull ups and straight arm...

    Personally I slow down negatives for most stuff to keep myself under control and maintain tension at all bc I tend to get sloppy if I don’t. Might not be optimal, but if I’m consistent and moving up...

    Nope, all is well. I’m indefinitely ditching low bar, I think, at least for the foreseeable future. Still getting used to the new bar placement but otherwise enjoying the heck out of these.
