Barbell Row

The barbell row is one of the best ways to build your biceps and the middle portion of your back. On your back and bicep day, add this to your lateral pull down and seated row machine exercises. Of course, for this – you’ll need both a barbell and weights.

45 Degree Back Extensions

Barbell Decline Bench Press

The decline bench will actually break down and work your pectoral muscles more direct with less strain on your shoulders than a standard flat bench press. And, the Tuff Stuff PPF-700 Multi-Adjustable Bench is the perfect bench for barbell decline bench presses.

Underhand Grip Lat Pull Down

TBy placing your hands closer together with an underhand grip you will place more emphasis on your bicep and lat muscles. This is another exercise that is perfect to add to your exercises on back and biceps day.

Box Squat

By placing a box at the bottom of your squat and sitting on it you will force your hip flexors and gluteus muscles to engage while you explode up into your repetition. This is a great eway to help you build your leg muscles quickly.
