Made this more balanced, usually my back attack is pretty lat focused, I added in a bunch of cleans and more rows toward the chest to hit upper back more

Also took out the tricep work today in favor of more upperback work

Friday - Balanced Back, Delts, Biceps, Abs

Ring Row, BWx9, 9, 8 w/ Upright cable rows 42.5x10, 2 sets

One Arm Barbell Row, 95x8, 8, 8, 10 w/ Power Clean 155x4 and Upright cable rows 42.5x10, 2 sets

Hammer High Row Pulldown plate loaded - overhand grip
70 each side x 2 sets - I think I like the MTS Hammer cable machine better, feels heavier in the stretch position which is what I was going for

Hammer High Row Pulldown plate loaded - neutral grip
70 each side x 8, 3 sets - same machine, but not focusing on stretch, I enjoyed this much better, neutral grip really hammer my lats near the arm pit, I'd love to get some more mass there.

Both Hammer High Row exercises supersetted with:
Power Clean 155x4 and band pullaparts

Parallel Grip Low Row - I use momentum on this one and really arch the back and pull low to light up the lower lats
60x12, 4 set - really focusing on a hard contraction
w/ band pullaparts

Free Motion Bicep Curl
40x12, 35x12, 30x12

Bike Sprints
2x13 at level 18 (seat 8)

Parallel Grip Low Row/High Row 45x10 pulling low, then 10 reps pulling to chest
w/ Preacher Curls 40x12, 10, 8

* Great workout, a few assisted pullups would have been great. I like the machine but didn't have time to work it in.

* In the future, I can save time and not get the TRX straps out for the ring rows. It makes sense to get the on the lat focused days since I use them for 6 total sets (3 lever and 3 row), but to get them out and set them up today for 3 sets just wasted my time. Since my goal is to make this particular workout more balanced, I think a different exercise is in order.
