I was hoping for my upperback to be sore after blasting it yesterday. But I find that I get better back soreness from more volume on deadlifts. I love standard back work (rows/chins), but it just doesn't tend to get me sore the way high volume deadlifts do. (and no, 40 reps of deadlift yesterday does not constitute high volume for me, I am so built for and accustomed to deadlifting, that it takes more like 60 reps to do the trick)
