The dumbells go to 100, and there are some DB bars that take plates. The more I look at the list the more I think I'm doing something wrong. But then I just put that out of my head and start looking at what I can do better. I think range of motion is limited in the exercises I was doing, because I use alot of the guided racks, levers and cable thinga majigs. I'm considering not using any machines at all and just going to freeweights only (mainly DB), but I'm not sure which exercises to do for the back.
I'm still kinda bouncing back and forth, I want to get good range of motion on just about everything and activate the stablizers as well. I'm a fire performer and ROM is key to this whole bit for me. I'm not interested in bodybuilding as a sport, just being in good, strong physical condition. My workout buddy is into bodybuilding as a sport, I'm after a strong physic for entertainment purposes. I guess that means I don't want to get huge, I just want to get cut and proportioned.
I"ve been doing lats on lever machines. There's a pulldown and a row lever, but neither is full range of motion like a seated row. I want to engage my lowerback through traps in the row, of course I would probably start with a set at 100 and see how the lower back reacts, allowing for adaptation as I work up to full weight. Problem is I don't think I can get to full weight with the available equipment. I"m gonna get a closer look at the smith tomorrow and see if it might work, I don't use it much right now.
