Back and Lats:

Pull ups, barbell row, deadlift. You can vary the grip on the first two exercises to get variety. Those are the best, you don't need more.

Shoulders: apart from dips, bench press and the back movements, it's upright row and barbell/dumbell press.

Don't forget shrugs! Shrugs are fun because it's possible to move huge weights. Everybody wants monster traps, right? :D

Hey Michael and Brian......how do you like these traps?

Image

For Back exercises I do a bunch that have been listed. I warm-up with lat pull downs and I always like to start out my workout with pull-ups.

After 3-5 sets of lat pull-downs to get blood flowing I start.

I do 6 sets of pull-ups, 3 wide grip and 3 narrow grip. I just do as many reps as possible for each set.

Then I move on to T-Bar rows. Again I'll do 6 sets, 3 wide grip and 3 narrow grip.

After that I may do some machine hammer strength rows and some specific lower back work like lumbar extensions or hyperextensions, whatever you want to call them. (Reverse sit-up basically). I also do some cable rows, sometimes one-arm dumbbell rows and when my back is healthy I do bent-over rows and deadlifts.

I do shrugs on back day sometimes and other times on shoulder day.

Here is my back from 2 weeks ago:

Back is probably my favorite muscle group to train. I like that feeling of being able to walk around with a severe case of ILS. I'm sure you all know what that is right????? Imaginary Lat Syndrome.....those guys who walk around as if they have a basketball under either arm, like they can't put their arms to their sides. Yeah, that's a good back pump feeling :)
