Neck development

I'm looking for some advice regarding neck development exercises and programming. I've looked at the listing of exercises and I think I have a good sense about how to extension and flexion. Rotation, however, I don't see how to do well. Using bands do not appear to be able to provide sufficient stim...

Re: Upper body only split routine, pull/push?

Thank you both for the replies. Very useful tips on exercise selection, Stu, I often struggle with this. The focus on upper body, Crow, is due to the fact that I cycle a lot and have developed an imbalance over time. I'm big from the waist down, iow. So I've set the amount of work for legs and glute...

Re: Upper body only split routine, pull/push?

Twice, as shown, Tuesday + Friday or some similar arrangement. I agree the push/pull is an odd split. The shoulder gets hit both times and could become a limiting factor. Moreover, the implementation will be for hypertrophy with higher rep ranges and overall volume. Since I'm just about 50, recovery...

Upper body only split routine, pull/push?

As the title says. I'm interested in putting together an upper body only split routine. I've looked around and a pull/push split is all I've found. It's unclear to me if this is a sound approach so I'm posting it here for constructive criticism. Tuesday (push) triceps, delts, pecs Friday (pull) bice...

Re: Variation of Cable Straight Arm Pulldown

Thank you for the reply. Yes, the pic with the woman is the one, but with the pulley even lower. Would be it correct to say that this variation hits the lats less and the delts, pecs, and triceps more? Or would hyperextension imply something else, like greater engagement of the erectors? I'm just tr...

Variation of Cable Straight Arm Pulldown

Hello everyone. I have visited the site & forum searching for info many times over the years and would like to thank everyone for the effort. My question. I've seen folks at the gym doing what appears to be a variation of the cable straight arm pulldown that I cannot make sense of. Using the ExRx vi...
