Larry 2011-01-15
So, if you happen to fall into either category 1 or 2, what else would you recommend?
Greg Everett 2011-01-17
Larry - Stiff-legged DLs, good mornings and bent rows / pendlay rows with an emphasis on upper back extension. You can also try upper back extensions if you have a space to set up for them - get your stomach on the fulcrum of a back extension bench / glute ham bench, bar on the back of your neck, and do back extensions just of the upper back. This is not a comfortable exercise, and make sure you're not smashing your ribs.
