When I do lifts for back I generally get a better pump in my biceps than my back.
Especially in regarsd to puul-ups and db rows.
The only time I get a pump in my back that is noticeable is when I do bb rows.
What am I doing wrong on the pull-ups and db rows?
Jerking to heavy of weight up and using all of your arm. Use a controlled motion to really contract your back. Try a looser grip on those exercises. I found that I take SOME of my arms out of the lift when I do. However, once you get to heavy weight it’s hard to have a loose grip.
For DB rows imagine pulling with your elbow and bring the weight to you hip.
I bet when you BB row you have a overhand grip hence not having as much pump in your bis?
How many pull ups can you do? If you can do strict pull ups and not flail like a retard trying to swim your arms won’t be used as much if you flail.[/quote]
Yes, I do use overhand grip with bb rows. However, I’m not sure that’s all there is to it as I can really feel the lift working my back.
On the pull-ups, I get 10-11 with strict form before getting 1-2 more by cheating a little bit. I do feel it in my lats the next day, just not during the work out.
Should I use overhand grip on pull-ups as well?
