Try This Exercise: Big Back Superset

  • Cable Straight Arm Pulldowns
  • Cable Face Pull

Use this superset as either a warm-up or finisher on your upper body days. Whether it’s a push or a pull day (or even legs), it’s always a good idea to throw in some extra lat and upper back work.

On pulldowns, I like to start in a hinged position with my arms fully stretched, and then bring my hips forward as I contract my lats. On face pulls, I’m fully protracting my shoulders and extending my arms, then retracting and squeezing to hit all the muscles of the upper back.
