I know I’ve seen this question asked on here at least 2 or 3 times but after coming up empty with the search engine i decided to post anyway…
Today i was doing some pull-downs during my westside for skinny bastards workout since i can’t do enough pull ups to complete the desired rep/set scheme. Towards the end of my first set I started to notice that, rather than becoming fatigued in my back, i began to become fatigued in my arms. This did not change with the completion of more sets, I just kept becoming more and more fatigued in the arms.
So what’s the deal? How can i get more out of my vertical pulling? Is this just a result of poor rep execution, or is this just to be expected?
It’s too early to tell whether or not my back is falling behind as far as strength and hypertrophy gains are concerned, but i’d like very much for this not to happen. thanks for any and all advice.
