I’ve been asked where I learned so much about bodybuilding training and nutrition over the years. Sure, I spent a few years hitting the books in college, but for the most part I’ve just been around some of the smartest people in the industry, editing their writing and working with them to create compelling training articles.
When you interview physique athletes who have enjoyed great success in the gym, you’re bound to find novel approaches. Recently, I interviewed six Team Bodybuilding.com athletes with a specific goal in mind: to have them each go beyond the obvious and give me a really unusual back exercise. Not just unusual for the sake of being unusual, either. I wanted moves that are highly effective as well.
Try their suggestions on back day when your stale routine could use a few far-from-ordinary movements!
