Okay so many of you have seen my post recently on semi-writing my own routine and I know I’ve been blowing up the beginner’s forum lately but I just have a couple more questions…
I’ve been reading up a lot (probably too much because I’m becoming overwhelmed haha) about anatomy and realized there was more to back and chest than just rowing and pressing.
I learned more in depth about the iliac, thoracic, and lumbar fibers of the lats and how to hit them in different degrees of rows/pull downs. I also learned about the clavicle, sternal, and costal part of the chest and how you need more than just a chest press to develop all areas.
So my questions are:
What movements hit all three areas of the chest the most? I read that floor press hits the sternal and clavicle part of the chest. So what hits the costal?
And then regarding back, what hits the traps and rhomboids then if pull downs and rows mainly hit the different fibers of the lat?
Should the teres major be considered than as well when working out back or is it hit in most rows and pull downs?
Am I overthinking this?
