VIDEO TIP* These workouts can be done by guys as well! Just increase the weight, sets and repetitions accordingly!
Here is my one of my many BACK workouts for you guys! Each of the 4 exercises are 4 SETS and 10 REPS (except for the final workout which is 2 SETS OF 20). Make sure you keep a fast pace throughout the workout, you are hydrating, and cleaning you equipment if you sweat! Also, make sure to KEEP YOUR CORE TIGHT throughout this workout…it will generate for an awesome burn!
HUGE Thank you to my beautiful girlfriend for being a good sport and allowing me to film our workout session! Love you babe!
1st EXERCISE: LAT PULL-DOWN MACHINE — 4 SETS/10 REPS/35 LBS
Go to the Lat-Pull Down machine … first SIT down in it and get comfortable … then stand up and grab the bar at your desired weight … Place your hands in the grooves of the pull-down bar … then sit down with the bar in your hands and pull the weight down right below your chin, and slowly resist back up … Repeat this for 4 sets of 10 repetitions!
2nd EXERCISE: LAT ROW MACHINE — 4 SETS/10 REPS/35 LBS
Get onto the lat-row machine … (The “Lat-Row Machine”s ALL look different, but pay attention to the MOVEMENT in this exercise and I AM SURE your gym will have a similar machine) … If you have a machine like the one you saw in this video that has a TWISTABLE HANDLE, then make sure when you are doing these you twist your grip when you pull IN … but either grip is great if your Lat-Row Machine’s handles don’t twist too! Repeat this for 4 sets of 10 repetitions!
3rd EXERCISE: STANDING BENT-OVER ROW — 4 SETS/10 REPS PER ARM/10 LBS
Make sure you pay attention to Carli’s form for this exercise! I want you guys to MIRROR that stance … then, using a DUMBBELL that is comfortable weight (Carli used 10 pounds) hold the weight by your hip and drive your elbow straight back, keeping your arm as close to your body as you can! Do 4 sets of 10 repetitions!
4th EXERCISE: REVERSE FLY HOLD — 2 SETS/20 REPS/35 LBS/1 SEC HOLD
Get on the REVERSE FLY machine (this machine can also be a CHEST FLY MACHINE with adjustable the handles) … keep your back and head straight with elbows just about locked with a SLIGHT bend just for comfort… then using your tricep muscle, shoulder, and BACK muscles and SLIGHTLY bend your arm but do not bend too much, you dont want to over-compensate for fatigued muscles…it will ruin your form…bring the weight straight back, hold for 1 second, then slowly allow yourself to resist the weight while it brings you back to first position. Make sure you control the weight and don’t let the weight control you!! Very important! Repeat this for 2 sets of 20 repetitions!

The best fitness plan is one that is accessible, comfortable and fun. Creating a personalized workout regimen makes working out far more pleasurable and easier to stay with. The tips in this article will show you how to build a custom program that works perfectly for you.
Try using music to help you exercise. The music will get you into a rhythm and get your body moving instinctively. When you get started, you will be able to keep moving for a long time. Dancing takes the tedium out working out because it’s fun to do.
Working out is a chore unless you take specific steps to make it fun. Figure out a way to turn workouts into social events. Take walks on your lunch breaks or at the gym with some friends. By having great friends to converse with during your workout, time will go by faster. It’s always encouraging to have someone to share your plans and activities with.
If you’d like to try a different way to work out, check out some exercise video games. This is a wonderful method because you are no longer stressed about working out, since you are concentrating on winning the game. You will be able to work out longer without feeling so tired if you are not constantly focusing on your body.
Buy workout clothes you love, so you’ll look forward to hitting the gym. Purchase workout outfits that really boost your self esteem! Fitness gear can be very fashionable and flattering. Just choose something that you like and enjoy wearing. Show off your unique style! Don’t be afraid to be adventurous! You really want to select a variety of workout clothes capable of inspiring you to exercise frequently.
In order to avoid the same humdrum routine, switch up your exercises daily. Letting yourself get bored will make it harder to reach your goals. Altering your exercise pattern will help you stay interested in your exercise routine.
Give yourself a prize for achieving each fitness goal. No matter if you’ve reached a long term goal or a short term one, remember you deserve the reward to keep you motivated. You gave it your all, and success is yours! Take a break and enjoy your loved ones, or maybe indulge in a small portion of a sinful food you really enjoy. Maybe buy a new outfit to show off your improved body. Having a reward waiting for various milestones can really help you stay motivated to work toward your goals.
Overexerting yourself and perspiring should not be the only view you have of exercising. Working out can be fun if you discover what exciting elements you want to add to your exercise routine. Review the ideas in this article that will help you create exercise programs that are more fun and engaging.
