Workout routine

Deadlift with powershrugs (3.sets 5 reps)
The weight on the bar should be approximately 80% of your deadlift max.
Start deadlifting the bar and do 3 powershrugs then repeat this 5 times.
So you get 5 deadlifts and 15 powershrugs in each set.

Weighted Pullups (3.sets till failure)
If you can’t do weighted pullups you can do without weight instead.
Go hard or go home, don’t cheat go all they way down !

One Arm Dumbell Rows (3.sets 8-10 reps)
Go heavy in this one! If you can do more then 10 reps go heavier!
But remember even though you are lifting heavy, a good form is far more important then the weight you are lifting.!
Be careful or you will risk snapping some sh*t up!

Straight Arm Pulldown (4.sets 8-12 reps)
Feel the burn as you go down and then slowly up again repeatedly.
Your lats should be on fire after 4 sets of these.

Back Extensions with weight (3.sets till failure)
Your lower back should be crying after this.
If you are doing more then 12 reps in a set go heavier!

Dumbell Shrugs (3 sets till failure)
Imagine that your lats can touch your ears when performing this exercise and try to do so!
