Workout Description and Instruction:

Working your back and biceps in the same routine is an effective way to structure your workouts as your biceps are called upon in the majority of pull exercises like the seated cable row, lat pull down, chin ups, etc. 

This workout is comprised of some classic back exercises, some back exercises that are the most demanding on your biceps, and some auxiliary bicep exercises. 


  • Use a weight that will allow you to complete only the listed number of reps.
  • Rest 1-3 minutes between each exercise.
  • Aside from the lone superset, perform all sets of one exercise before moving to the next. Exercises in the superset should be done one after another, but you should still take your standard rest time.
