-Today was back day. You can see the full details of my workout in my other post.
-The Back is such a huge area of major muscles that are so important to our movement and maintenance of a neutral and supported posture.
-These two pictures show the different muscles that form the back in quite good detail; the lats, traps (lower, middle and upper), rear deltoids, erector spinae and all the shoulder girdle retractors and movers.
-Yes, the back is a large area with some serious musculature and for this reason I often train it on its own!
-It takes a lot of time, dedication, and serious effort to build a thick and muscular back. But if that’s what you desire then go for it and don’t look back!! Excuse pun lol.
-For more in back exercises and training please see some of my other posts!
This is my Grandfather Lusch’s 1958 Epiphone Texan flat top. He bought it in the early 60s, and had the “expensive” price knocked down with a trade in. I have no idea how well he played, or what songs he played, but it sat in his closet for decades, until after he passed. It has survived the harsh Midwest weather, death, divorce. It’s warm timbre has been captured on many a recording, preserved for whoever is left to hear it. But mostly, it’s been a friend. Life is hard, but there is still good in this world. Cheers to waking up another day, slinging this over my shoulder, and singing another tune #thankful#humbled#guitar#acousticguitar#vintageguitar#vintageacoustic#PaulMcCartney#Epiphone#Gibson#country#heritage#family#nevergiveup
ENTRENO DE HOY🚴🏃 Series de 5km a tope en bici 🚴+1km run 🏃
Ha sido duro, pero seguimos sumando para la puesta a punto y la vuelta a pillar chispa de cara al duatlon del prat pero tambien para volver a la forma fisica deseada... Es lo peor del mundo ver lo que cuesta ir mejorando, y lo rapido que se pierde... No os pasa?
En fin, toca seguir luchando!
Mañana mas y mejor! 💪
Things like this make me smile. Score sheets from the woodwind committee members for one of my students. She was super excited when I told her how pleased they were. My response? “See, hard work pays off more than you could imagine. Don’t get complacent and you’re going to finish strong like a rockstar next weekend.” #clarinetteacher#musiclessons#nevergiveup

Helluva #backday & #calves day today!
The 1st #video is me doing seated one-arm rows for sets of 6 reps each arm at 310lbs. This is the heaviest Ive gone in a really long time, and it felt great! 😎
The 2nd video is me doing a set of bent-over barbell rows with 315lbs for a pretty easy set of 10 reps. This was my final #exercise for #back 😬
The last video is me doing a super heavy set of standing calf raises for 12 reps. I generally do either calf-raises or an abdominal exercise in-between my sets.
