 "Working chest, delts, tris, and biceps works approximately 10% of your overall lean body mass. Working hard on deadlifts (bent legged, trap Bar, or sumo) or squatting (not necessarily at the same time) works more like 70% of your musculature at once and sends a strong message to your body to get better at growing now!" - Wesley Silveira

Bird Pull Ups - 3x5

“The Bird pull up is an L-sit behind the neck pull up and one of the hardest pull up variations for both strength and mobility.

The demands for the shoulder girdle strength and mobility are high: the legs create counter balance which almost forces your body to stay upright. This places your muscles in a difficult position to pull. 

Then, when you pull it behind the neck, it not only requires a high level of flexibility, but your arms will fly completely to the sides, which forces you to pull with shoulder adduction alone. 

This will heavily train the teres major muscle in addition to lats and other back muscularity”. - Vahva Fitness

If you've never performed this version of a chin-up, you're missing out. Give it a shot. Not only does it hit your lats and rear delts harder than a traditional chin-up, it also blasts your core.

*Dynamic Front Lever X 3 in between sets

Seated Snatches

Light up your traps and delts with this simplified variation of the barbell snatch.

“The barbell snatch is complex, and something that's difficult to master even with a coach. Simplifying this movement by eliminating the involvement of the ankle, knee, and hip joint by using dumbbells and taking a seat is great for lifters looking for some size and conditioning.

The best part about them, unlike barbell snatches, is that they make you responsible for your negative reps. That forces you to be much more honest with the weight you choose, especially when doing sets of 6 or 8 reps. Moreover, similar to a Z press, this movement will quickly expose mobility issues since your seated position has no backrest.

If you can't hold the weight directly overhead with an upright torso, it's time to improve your shoulder mobility and the health of your thoracic spine. To say this focuses on just the front, mid, or rear delts would be selling it short because it tackles all three, depending on the phase of the lift. “ - T Nation

Skier Swings - 20 sets of 10 @ 35lbs

Did some Skier Swings today. I liked them better than traditional Double Swings. I feel like you can heavier and need to use your upper back and rear delts to stabilize yourself at the top of the movement. All while working your hamstrings! 


“The weights move faster to achieve movement, which helps develop tremendous hip, glute, and hamstring strength.”

The move also homes in on the upper body. Since each arm maintains a weight—rather than controlling the same one—muscles in the shoulders, chest, and upper back contend with momentum on both sides, forcing them to make small adjustments to stay in sync”. - Men’s Journal

“By doing the front lever, your entire torso functions collectively, rather than twisting and collapsing under pressure. You also build exceptional strength in the back muscles, such as the lats, rhomboids, and spinal erectors. The abs benefit from this too! In fact, it’s one of the most effective ab workouts. 

It’s one of the top bodyweight exercises for a good reason! It’s the ultimate display of straight-arm pulling prowess, challenging your body to such an extreme skill!

Holding your entire body face up, straight, and outstretched gives you all the strength you need for your lats, arms, delts, chest and abs". - Bodyweight Training Arena

Pelican curls — “These are a often quite underrated bicep exercise that will work wonders for building arm size and strength. There are two ways of approaching this exercise. The first method, and usually best if you are new to this exercise, is to use long 6-8 second eccentrics, to break that muscle fiber down and strengthen it in it’s lengthening phase. The second option is to perform the exercise with a concentric and eccentric, as you would with any other exercise. This one can be a bit awkward in terms of form if you have never done it before". -
