hi, i thought the same thing, but the wide grip cable rows seems to do the job.

No program on here has traps as one session. It's probably included on the chest and biceps.

this is one of the best workouts i have done by far i noticed the same problem when i was doing this routine so what i did on my own was one back and on shoulders day i would do my own traps exercise although the workouts for the shoulders and back that he included do make a big difference i been out of the game for some while now but i will be heading back into the temple(gym) soon and will first burn off some of this fat that i have then back to the dy workout

I think the hack squat is a replacement for the traditional squat exercise which does the trick. Maybe increasing more weight might help. But that's a guess..will have to wait till leg day!

Technically, anything! As long as you keep the same intensity and mind to muscle connection, you can do any workouts you want.

good answer lee but i myself would say to just take a good 2-3 weeks break from the dorian yates routine do your own workouts just follow the same regiment and then come back to dy and you should be fine be sure to supplement your self good

yup that might probably be the problem. Try going heavy..increase more weight..make sure you dont do ur exercises too fast..go slow..feel the contraction..see if that works..it worked for me!

I had the same experience with Day One. I am new at this and old (48) so may have gone too easy and a little afraid to "fail." Day Two (back) I pushed a lot harder. The next morning my lats were sore even when I started my morning run.

@isaias53_5: It's NOT really old school basics because when it was introduced it was a great departure from the isolation and volume training principles which were (and still are to a great extent) prevailent in bodybuilding.

The basic principle is that the last rep of your heaviest set with a given exercise is what stimulates adaptation so by beginning with a warmup set with lighter weight which prepares the muscle for the heavy set to prevent injury while not taxing the muscles energy levels to save as much energy for the WORK set. The final rep of the WORK set which falls in the 5-8 rep range should take every ounce of your effort and focus to fail or if you have a training partner who can assist you then you can get a couple of forced reps and negatives to really maximize the stimulus. The result is that you can get through your workout in short order while still achieving maximum results and since less energy is expended you aren't losing/wasting nutrient support to excessive reps. I have used HIT for years and I personally think that following up on that WORK set with a FEEDER set or two to pump some blood in is useful. I have used this in a 5 set pyramid scheme with good results.

@ajkrywucki: The traps and rhomboids are worked with the wide grip seated row and the bent DB Row which is the true anatomically correct movement to target these muscles. Lat pull being done with a close neutral grip is also the true anatomically correct movement to target the lats. The direction of movement of the elbow tells the tale. Yates addresses this by using a close grip for the lat pull which fully engages the lats through their full ROM as the elbows are close to the body and using a wide grip on the seated row with the elbows away from the body in a rearward direction which fully engages the traps and rhomboids through their ROM and gets a peak contraction. Yates is known to be the King of Back Development so...
