Do you need something fresh for your back workouts? Then try these exercises that’ll tackle your muscles in a fresh way!
How about a neat exercise that works your grip strength and forearms and at the same time your back?
Towel pull-ups work best for people who plateaued on pull-ups and need a different way to engage their back muscles.
Towel pull-ups ask a lot from your grip and forearms, so afterwards your lats should still have plenty of reserves. Which we can’t leave untapped.
Therefore we do underhand barbell rows that ask a good deal from your lats and many more muscles in your upper back.
You’ll need another towel, this time a big one. Suspended rows shift concentration away from the lats and are a general back exercise.
At gyms you do them with fancy equipment, but we of course think outside the box! Heed the warning about finding something sturdy to do these!
When And How Often?
As usual, do each exercise for three sets with 6 to 12 reps per set. If the towel pull-ups become too easy, add resistance as I describe here.
And, as always, you should make this part of a complete workout plan like the one I put together here!
