It's easy to talk about embracing the grind, focusing on the work at hand, and maximizing every rep. It's a lot harder to do it. Sometimes, the best way is to strip every non-essential from your training and focus only on doing battle with the fundamentals.
And in the case of world-class bodybuilder Evan Centopani, a back workout comprised of just two moves—the barbell bent-over row and the barbell deadlift—can turn into a cinematic battle that's essential viewing before your next back day.
Centopani's 12-week program Iron Intelligence is unlike anything else Bodybuilding.com has ever offered in its blend of simplicity and intensity. Test yourself against the Friday workout from phase 1 this weekend, or dive into the entire plan!
