Got some back work in before bench pressing yesterday. Activating my back prior to bench pressing gives me better ability to root myself through the bench allowing for more stability to push from. -
This is one of my favorite back exercises, the chest supported dumbbell row. The key to this movement is to pull from the lat, not your arm. I like to focus on driving my elbow back, not up. Pinching your shoulder blades together as you go through the motion. -
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to comment or shoot me a DM! #BST
Post-Exercise Cortisol & Sports Drinks - I'm recycling this video from a few months back because everyone's out exercising and I see people clinging to their precious neon sports for dear life through their workouts!
Check the video for the details, but in short the simple carbs in sports drinks blunt the beneficial post-exercise cortisol spike that you want after short (1-2 hour) workouts! -
Despite what the bros say, acute spikes in cortisol are GOOD for muscle recovery. Pounding sugary drinks will blunt that spike (and add calories you don't need while in the gym)
