On to middle back with seated rows, Robert insists on perfect form for the best muscle stimulation including ending with partial reps and a quick superset with wide grip high rows. Middle back and rhomboids are singled out with bent flyes, while close grip pullups are utilized for a huge pump throughout. Finally it's hyperextensions to get that massive stretch in the muscle. With plans to attack all heads of the tricep, tried-and-true standard and reverse grip pushdowns are on the menu first. To end it's a straight set of overhead triceps extensions and then dips to failure.
