Arnold Schwarzenegger Blueprint Trainer Day 32

Previous | Main | Next

You may not often see someone as big as Arnold doing pull-ups for big reps in the gym, but chins were a crucial part of his training throughout his youth and competitive years. But he quickly learned that this fundamental movement wasn’t quite enough to build a complete bodybuilder’s back.

“When I met Roger Callard, Mr. Western America, he had been doing chin-ups his whole life,” he wrote in “The Education of a Bodybuilder.” “He had a wide back, but never a winning back. He could hit a straight-on back pose and nothing happened. A year ago I encouraged him to start rowing; as a result of his efforts he now wins the ‘best back’ in every contest.”

As the ultimate self-critic, Arnold felt that he still needed one more movement to maximize his own back development. He found it in the T-bar row, which was relatively new when he was captured doing it in the film “Pumping Iron.” His total back formula, which he laid out in “The Education,” was a three-pronged approach: “chin-ups work on width, bent-over rowing with the bar develops the center and lower back, and T-bar rowing develops the outside of the back and the lower lats.” It’s the perfect formula. Finish your back work strong with it today!

Why did you start your fitness journey?
Was it because of a bad break up? Did you do it to get healthy and in shape for your kids? Maybe it was for a fitness competition? ...Or one day did you just look in the mirror and decide right then and there to make a change? WHY DID YOU START? And what motivation do you have to continue?!!
