Too often we waste exercises by not actually working the muscles intended.
And then we wonder why we aren’t seeing the results we want.
But we have to remember that if we don’t feel the correct muscles working, those muscles aren’t reaping the benefits.
This even goes for those back exercises you’re including in your workouts.
Tend to feel your neck or shoulders or even your biceps working instead of your upper back during rows or pull ups?
Struggling to feel like all of that back strengthening work is leading to the results you want, like improving your pull ups so you can do that first full one?
Then you need to make sure your back is actually what is powering your pulling moves.
And if it isn’t, you need to potentially modify so your arms can’t compensate.
You need to start by addressing your scapular mobility and stability to actually get your back powering the pull!
