THE PUSH PULL LEGS ROUTINE overview
This push pull legs routine consists of 6 training days per week. The exact days don’t matter for your
workouts, but the key is to get at least one rest day in between each consecutive 3 workouts. Abs and
calves exercises can be thrown into the main workouts as well, or performed on rest days.

Exercise 1: INCLINE BARBELL BENCH PRESS
STEP 1 (BENCH ANGLE)
Setup an incline bench so that it’s at roughly a 30-degree
angle (generally two notches up from the bottom). But
I would suggest trying out various angles to see which
best activates your upper chest. For shoulder-dominant
pressers, you might even find that a very low incline of
15-degree angle (one notch up) activates your chest
better. Stick your chest up, retract your shoulder-blades,
then unrack the bar.
STEP 2 (DESCEND)
Lower the bar to your upper chest region while slightly
tucking your elbows and keeping your forearms vertical
and directly under your wrists. Make sure to use full
range of motion such that the bar physically touches your
chest at the bottom. If you experience shoulder pain at
this point however, then you can stop the rep earlier.
STEP 3 (PRESS)
Press back up to the starting position while keeping your
shoulder-blades remain retracted and tight and your
chest up and out. Keep your elbows slightly tucked as you
press, and press up until your arms lockout.

@jeremyethier 9
Exercise 2: STANDING DUMBBELL SHOULDER PRESS
STEP 1 (SETUP)
Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, take a
dumbbell in each hand. Raise the dumbbells to head
height, with the elbows tucked very slightly forward
rather than completely flared out to the sides. This will be
your starting position.
STEP 2 (PRESS)
Extend through the elbows to raise the weight overhead.
As you do so, contract your abs and your glutes and keep
them contracted throughout the press. This will prevent
your lower back from arching as you press. Avoid using
momentum or leg drive to help you lift the weight up. At
the top position, your arms, head, hips, and feet should
form one straight line.
STEP 3 (DESCEND)
Slowly lower the weight back to the starting position with
the dumbbells roughly at the level of your head before
pressing up again for another rep.
push workout
@jeremyethier 10
Exercise 3: FLAT DUMBBELL PRESS
STEPS 1 & 2 (SET UP)
Using your thighs to push the dumbbells up, kick up one
dumbbell at a time so that you can get them into the
starting position. Stick your chest up towards the ceiling
and pinch your shoulder blades together as if you were
squeezing a pencil between them. This will create some
space between your back and the bench. You need to
actively maintain this position throughout the lift.
STEP 3 (PRESS)
Press up by thinking about “squeezing your biceps
together” to better activate your chest. Ensure your
shoulder-blades remain retracted and tight. Keep your
elbows slightly tucked as you press, and press up until the
dumbbells almost touch.
STEP 4 (DESCENT)
Slowly lower the weight until the end of the dumbbells
just about touch your chest. At the bottom position,
your hands should be directly above your elbows. Make
sure your shoulderblades are retracted and tight before
performing another rep.

Exercise 4: DUMBBELL LATERAL RAISES
STEP 1 (SET UP)
Grab a dumbbell in one hand and with your other arm
hold onto a fixture such that you can use it to lean-away
slightly from it as you perform the movement.
STEP 2 (PULL)
Raise the dumbbell out to your side in the scapular plane
(which isn’t directly out to your side, but slightly forward)
until it reaches about shoulder-height. Your arms should
be just slightly bent at the elbow as you raise. And as
you raise, think about raising the weight “out” as much
as possible opposed to thinking about raising the weight
“up”. Avoid using excessive momentum to swing the
weight up.
STEP 3 (DESCENT)
Control the weight back down to the starting position
and repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
push workout
@jeremyethier 13
Exercise 5: SEATED DECLINE CABLE FLIES W/ SUPINATION
STEP 1 (SET UP)
Setup a high inclined bench in between a cable system.
Move the handles up such that they are above the level
of your shoulders when you’re seated. Grab the handles,
retract your shoulder blades, and stick your chest up to
prepare for your first rep.
STEP 2 (FLY)
Perform a high to low fly motion by bringing the cables
down and in. As you do so, supinate your wrists by
rotating your palms upwards towards the end of each
rep and focus on driving your elbows in as if you were
trying to touch them together at the end of each rep.
Your shoulder blades should remain retracted back as
you perform the fly and your chest should remain up
and out. Your arms should also remain just slightly bent
during each rep. At the end position, avoid “caving in”
by letting your shoulders round forward especially at the
end position. You should feel a strong contraction in the
lower/outer part of your chest when executed properly.
STEP 3 (RETURN)
Control the cables back to the starting position and
repeat for another rep. Your arms should be slightly bent
throughout each rep.
push workout
@jeremyethier 14
Exercise 6: INCLINE DUMBBELL OVERHEAD EXTENSIONS
STEP 1
Set up an incline bench to around 45 degrees. Lay
your back on the bench with the dumbbells directly
overhead.
STEP 2
While keeping your elbows locked, lower the dumbbells
back behind your body as far as it will go.
STEP 3
Press the weight back up to the starting position by
using your triceps while keeping your elbow locked in
position. Repeat.

pull
@jeremyethier 16
Exercise 1 (option A): pull-ups
STEP 1 (SET UP)
Grab the pull-up bar with an overhand grip slightly wider
than shoulder-width – I’d suggest using a “thumb-less
grip” as it usually helps better activate the back. Next,
depress your upper traps and keep them this way as
you pull.
STEP 2 (PULL)
Pull yourself up by pulling your elbows down to the floor,
you want to think about pulling with your elbows as
opposed to pulling with your hands. It’s preferred to keep
your feet straight down throughout the pull-up, but if
your pull-up bar doesn’t allow this then it’s perfectly fine
to cross your feet over and bend your knees.
STEP 3 (TOP POSITION)
You want to pull such that at least your eyes reach over
the bar – and at this point, you want to ensure that your
shoulders are not rounding forward (internally rotating)
and are instead retracted back.
STEP 4 (DESCENT)
Lower your body in a controlled manner until your arms
are straight, and then repeat for another rep. As soon as
you’re able to perform 8 or more bodyweight pull-ups in
one set, I’d suggest adding a little bit of weight by either
using a weight belt or holding a dumbbell between your
feet then continue adding more weight overtime.

@jeremyethier 17
Exercise 1 (option b): KNEELING LAT PULLDOWNS
STEP 1 (SETUP)
Attach a lat pulldown handle to a cable system.
Grab it with an overhand grip slightly wider than
shoulder-width, then kneel on the ground.
STEP 2 (PULL)
Engage your core before pulling, and then by using
your lats pull the weight down until the bar reaches
under your chin. Think about pulling down with the
elbows and trying to “tuck your elbows into your
back pockets” to best engage the lats.
STEP 3 (RETURN)
Return back to the starting position by slowly
controlling the weight back up.
pull workout
@jeremyethier 18
Exercise 2: BARBELL ROW
STEP 1 (SETUP)
Grab a barbell with an overhand grip slightly wider
than shoulder width apart. Push your hips back
while bending your knees until your body is at
roughly a 45 degree angle. Your back should be
neutral as opposed to rounded.
STEP 2 (PULL)
Engage your core, and then pull the weight by
driving your elbows back behind you until the bar
touches your upper abdominal area. Squeeze your
shoulder blades together as you pull.
STEP 3 (DESCENT)
Slowly lower the weight back to the starting
position and fully extend the arms before
proceeding for the next rep. Avoid using
momentum to swing the weight up. Instead, each
rep should be controlled.
pull workout
@jeremyethier 19
Exercise 3: REVERSE GRIP LAT PULLDOWNS
STEP 1 (SETUP)
Grab the bar with an underhand grip at roughly
shoulder-width apart. Bring your upper traps down
by bringing your shoulders down and away from
the ears. You also want to maintain a very slight
lean back in your upper body as you proceed to
perform each rep.
STEP 2 (PULL)
Pull the bar down by bringing your elbows behind
your body. Your elbows should stay close to your
sides and you should pull until the bar reaches just
below your chin.
STEP 3 (DESCENT)
Control the weight back to the starting position
before repeating for another rep. Avoid using
momentum to move the weight for you.
pull workout
@jeremyethier 20
EXERCISE 4: CHEST SUPPORTED REAR DELT ROW
STEP 1 (SETUP)
Setup an inclined bench to roughly a 30 degree
angle (usually 2 notches up from the bottom
position). Lay on the bench with your chest
positioned towards the top of the bench and your
legs extended with your feet flat on the floor for
support. Grab a weighted bar infront of you with
your arms hanging down, and use a wide grip that’s
about 1.5x shoulder width. If you have difficulty
setting up the bar in position, lift it up so that you
can grab it by placing each end of the bar onto an
elevated platform or weights.
STEP 2 (PULL)
Pull the weight up by driving your elbows up as
far as you’re capable of, often the bench will limit
the end range of motion for you. As you pull, your
elbows shold be flared out to your sides to best
activate the rear delts. Hold the top position briefly
while engaging your rear delts
STEP 3 (RETURN)
Control the weight back to the starting position
and then repeat for another rep.
pull workout
@jeremyethier 21
Exercise 5: NARROW GRIP BARBELL CURL
STEP 1
Grab a barbell or weighted bar with a narrow
underhand grip that’s within shoulder-width. Keep
your elbows pinned to your sides.
STEP 2
Curl the weight up while keeping your elbows
pinned to your sides. As you curl, think about
raising the weight with your pinkies to best
engage the outer head of your biceps.
STEP 3
Control the weight back down to the bottom
position until your arms are fully extended before
proceeding for another rep.
pull workout
@jeremyethier 22
STEP 1 (SET UP)
Set up a cable system so that the notch is a couple
notches below from the very top. Grab the rope with an
overhand grip, then get down on one knee. Relax your
upper traps by bringing your shoulders down and away
from your ears. You want to maintain this throughout
each rep.
STEP 2 (PULL)
Pull the rope towards your face while keeping your
elbows high. Think about pulling with your elbows and
squeezing your shoulder-blades together, and as you pull,
you want to externally rotate your shoulder such that
your knuckles are facing the ceiling.
STEP 2 (PULL)
You can see what I mean here at this angle, the end
position is as if you were holding a “biceps flexing pose”.
This helps further target the rotator cuff.
STEP 3 (ECCENTRIC)
Control the weight back to the starting position and then
repeat for another rep. Ensure that you aren’t excessively
arching or rounding your back during each rep. You
should feel a strong contraction in the middle of your
back.
Exercise 6: kneeling face pulls
pull workout
@jeremyethier 23
Exercise 7: LYING FACE PULLS
STEP 1 (SETUP)
Still using the rope, raise the cable system up to the
highest position. Grab the rope with an overhand grip,
then lay down on your back in front of the cable system
with your arms straight, knees bent and feet flat on the
floor.
STEP 2 (PULL)
Pull the rope by pulling your elbows towards you until
they touch the ground. Your elbows should be at about
shoulder height.
STEP 3 (ECCENTRIC)
Control the weight back to the starting position and then
repeat for another rep. You should feel this mainly in the
back of your shoulder (rear delts).

Exercise 1 (option A): BACK SQUAT
STEP 1 (PLACEMENT)
Grab the bar with an overhand grip slightly wider than
shoulder-width. Place the bar on your upper-back (traps)
by dipping under the bar. Raise your chest up and retract
your shoulder blades.
STEP 2 (UNRACK)
Unrack the bar, take 3 steps back, then adjust your
footing. Your feet should be shoulder-width apart or a
little wider. You can point your toes out slightly if this is
more comfortable. But play around with foot positioning
to find what’s comfortable for you.
STEP 3 (DESCENT)
Take a deep breath in and hold it. You want to use this
breath to brace your core (think about contracting your
abs how you would if someone were to punch your
stomach). Move your hips back while bending your knees
to squat down. Squat down until your thighs are at least
parallel to the ground. If you have the mobility to do so,
then you can go further below parallel.
STEP 4 (ASCENT)
Squat back up by pushing through your heels. Keep your
knees in line with your toes by thinking about “spreading
the floor apart” with your feet. Avoid creeping up on your
toes or collapsing your knees inward. Keep your lower
back neutral and your chest up. You can exhale as you
press up, or keep your breath held and then exhale at the
top position. Then repeat for more reps.
legs workout
@jeremyethier 26
Exercise 1 (option b): FRONT SQUAT
STEP 1 (PLACEMENT)
You have a couple options as for placement of the bar for
the front squat. You can place the bar on the front delts
and crossover your hands OR stick both elbows forward
and keep your wrists under the bar if your wrist mobility
allows for this. Whichever is most comfortable for you, as
long as your elbows remain high at shoulder-level as you
perform the squat.
STEP 2 (UNRACK)
Unrack the bar, take 3 steps back, then adjust your
footing. Your feet should be shoulder-width apart or a
little wider. You can point your toes out slightly if this is
more comfortable. But play around with foot positioning
to find what’s comfortable for you.
STEP 3 (DESCENT)
Move your hips back while bending your knees to squat
down. Squat down until your thighs are at least parallel
to the ground. If you have the mobility to do so, then you
can go further below parallel.
STEP 4 (ASCENT)
Squat back up by pushing through your mid-foot. Keep
your knees inline with your toes by thinking about
“spreading the floor apart” with your feet. Avoid creeping
up on your toes or collapsing your knees inward. Keep
your lower back neutral and your chest up. You can
exhale as you press up, or keep your breath held and then
exhale at the top position. Then repeat for more reps.
legs workout
@jeremyethier 27
Exercise 2: BARBELL HIP THRUST
STEP 1 (SETUP)
Get into the starting position by placing your
shoulderblades on the bench and feet about shoulder
width apart and toes slightly pointed outwards. Roll the
weighted barbell over your hips into the start position.
STEP 2 (THRUST)
Drive you hips towards the ceiling. You want your
shoulder blades to stay on the bench and your feet
positioned so that your shins are vertical when in the top
position. Avoid arching your lower back and instead push
your hips forward into posterior pelvic tilt by contracting
your glutes. At the top position, your back and butt
should be inline and your chin should be tucked.
STEP 3 & 4 (DESCENT)
Lower back down by dropping your hips until your butt
almost touches the floor, then repeat for another rep
(step 4). Again, avoid any arching of the lower back and
keep your glutes engaged.
legs workout
@jeremyethier 28
Exercise 3 (beginner): split squats
STEP 1 (SETUP)
Grab a pair of dumbbells. Take one step forward and
plant your feet here. The farther your step, the more your
glutes will be targeted. The closer your step, the more
your quadriceps will be targeted. Choose what you’d like
to focus on more.
STEP 2 (DESCENT)
Descend by bending your back knee until it almost
touches the ground. Keep your back toes in contact with
the floor just for balance, but keep most of the pressure
in your front foot.
STEP 3 (ASCENT)
Push up by pressing against the floor with your front foot.
Avoid using too much assistance from your back leg/foot.
Keep your spine neutral as you do so (avoid excessively
arching or rounding the lower back).
legs workout
@jeremyethier 29
EXERCISE 3 (advanced): bulgarian split squat
STEP 1 (SETUP)
Grab a dumbbell in each hand and place your back foot
on the top of a bench or any elevated platform. Your front
foot can then be positioned based on what you want to
target. Take a shorter step forward if you want to target
the quads more, or a longer step forward if you want to
target the glutes more.
STEP 2 (DESCENT)
After you get your set up right, bend your front knee until
your thigh is at least parallel with the ground.
STEP 3 (ASCENT)
Push back up through your front foot. Your heel shouldn’t
raise off the floor and you want to keep your head, back,
and hips aligned throughout each rep. Your upper body
can lean forward slightly. Repeat for more reps.
STEP 4 (CONTRALATERAL)
Once you are able to balance well with the normal
version, perform 2 of the 4 sets by holding onto just one
(heavier) dumbbell in the opposite hand as your front leg.
This will help better target the important glute medius
muscle.
legs workout
@jeremyethier 30
Exercise 4: GLUTE HAM RAISE
STEP 1 (SETUP)
Set up the foot plate such that your feet can lay
flat and your knees are positioned just behind
the pad when in the starting position. The closer
to the “thigh pad” you adjust the foot plate, the
harder the exercise will be. So if you’re having a
hard time, move the foot plate further away to
lessen the lever during the movement.
STEP 2 (DESCENT)
Brace your core (“tighten” your abs) and slowly
lower your body in a controlled fashion by
contracting your hamstrings and glutes. Your
knees should gradually straighten while keeping
your head, back, and hips inline. Descend either to
parallel to the ground or slightly below (depending
on what you’re capable of).
STEP 3 (ASCENT)
Ascend by contracting contracting your
hamstrings and glutes by bending at the knees
while keeping your upper body in a straight line,
and then repeat for more reps. Your upper body
should move as one unit. Avoid excessive arching
or rounding of the back – a little bit is fine. If
you’re feeling it more in your lower back, then
it’s an indication that your hamstrings/glutes are
weak and you should regress the exercise either
by adjusting the footplate or starting with an
alternative.

  • 8. @jeremyethier 8 Exercise 1: INCLINE BARBELL BENCH PRESS STEP 1 (BENCH ANGLE) Setup an incline bench so that it’s at roughly a 30-degree angle (generally two notches up from the bottom). But I would suggest trying out various angles to see which best activates your upper chest. For shoulder-dominant pressers, you might even find that a very low incline of 15-degree angle (one notch up) activates your chest better. Stick your chest up, retract your shoulder-blades, then unrack the bar. STEP 2 (DESCEND) Lower the bar to your upper chest region while slightly tucking your elbows and keeping your forearms vertical and directly under your wrists. Make sure to use full range of motion such that the bar physically touches your chest at the bottom. If you experience shoulder pain at this point however, then you can stop the rep earlier. STEP 3 (PRESS) Press back up to the starting position while keeping your shoulder-blades remain retracted and tight and your chest up and out. Keep your elbows slightly tucked as you press, and press up until your arms lockout. push workout
  • 9. @jeremyethier 9 Exercise 2: STANDING DUMBBELL SHOULDER PRESS STEP 1 (SETUP) Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, take a dumbbell in each hand. Raise the dumbbells to head height, with the elbows tucked very slightly forward rather than completely flared out to the sides. This will be your starting position. STEP 2 (PRESS) Extend through the elbows to raise the weight overhead. As you do so, contract your abs and your glutes and keep them contracted throughout the press. This will prevent your lower back from arching as you press. Avoid using momentum or leg drive to help you lift the weight up. At the top position, your arms, head, hips, and feet should form one straight line. STEP 3 (DESCEND) Slowly lower the weight back to the starting position with the dumbbells roughly at the level of your head before pressing up again for another rep. push workout
  • 10. @jeremyethier 10 Exercise 3: FLAT DUMBBELL PRESS STEPS 1 & 2 (SET UP) Using your thighs to push the dumbbells up, kick up one dumbbell at a time so that you can get them into the starting position. Stick your chest up towards the ceiling and pinch your shoulder blades together as if you were squeezing a pencil between them. This will create some space between your back and the bench. You need to actively maintain this position throughout the lift. STEP 3 (PRESS) Press up by thinking about “squeezing your biceps together” to better activate your chest. Ensure your shoulder-blades remain retracted and tight. Keep your elbows slightly tucked as you press, and press up until the dumbbells almost touch. STEP 4 (DESCENT) Slowly lower the weight until the end of the dumbbells just about touch your chest. At the bottom position, your hands should be directly above your elbows. Make sure your shoulderblades are retracted and tight before performing another rep. push workout

  • 12. @jeremyethier 12 Exercise 4: DUMBBELL LATERAL RAISES STEP 1 (SET UP) Grab a dumbbell in one hand and with your other arm hold onto a fixture such that you can use it to lean-away slightly from it as you perform the movement. STEP 2 (PULL) Raise the dumbbell out to your side in the scapular plane (which isn’t directly out to your side, but slightly forward) until it reaches about shoulder-height. Your arms should be just slightly bent at the elbow as you raise. And as you raise, think about raising the weight “out” as much as possible opposed to thinking about raising the weight “up”. Avoid using excessive momentum to swing the weight up. STEP 3 (DESCENT) Control the weight back down to the starting position and repeat for the desired number of repetitions. push workout
  • 13. @jeremyethier 13 Exercise 5: SEATED DECLINE CABLE FLIES W/ SUPINATION STEP 1 (SET UP) Setup a high inclined bench in between a cable system. Move the handles up such that they are above the level of your shoulders when you’re seated. Grab the handles, retract your shoulder blades, and stick your chest up to prepare for your first rep. STEP 2 (FLY) Perform a high to low fly motion by bringing the cables down and in. As you do so, supinate your wrists by rotating your palms upwards towards the end of each rep and focus on driving your elbows in as if you were trying to touch them together at the end of each rep. Your shoulder blades should remain retracted back as you perform the fly and your chest should remain up and out. Your arms should also remain just slightly bent during each rep. At the end position, avoid “caving in” by letting your shoulders round forward especially at the end position. You should feel a strong contraction in the lower/outer part of your chest when executed properly. STEP 3 (RETURN) Control the cables back to the starting position and repeat for another rep. Your arms should be slightly bent throughout each rep. push workout
  • 14. @jeremyethier 14 Exercise 6: INCLINE DUMBBELL OVERHEAD EXTENSIONS STEP 1 Set up an incline bench to around 45 degrees. Lay your back on the bench with the dumbbells directly overhead. STEP 2 While keeping your elbows locked, lower the dumbbells back behind your body as far as it will go. STEP 3 Press the weight back up to the starting position by using your triceps while keeping your elbow locked in position. Repeat. push workout
  • 16. @jeremyethier 16 Exercise 1 (option A): pull-ups STEP 1 (SET UP) Grab the pull-up bar with an overhand grip slightly wider than shoulder-width – I’d suggest using a “thumb-less grip” as it usually helps better activate the back. Next, depress your upper traps and keep them this way as you pull. STEP 2 (PULL) Pull yourself up by pulling your elbows down to the floor, you want to think about pulling with your elbows as opposed to pulling with your hands. It’s preferred to keep your feet straight down throughout the pull-up, but if your pull-up bar doesn’t allow this then it’s perfectly fine to cross your feet over and bend your knees. STEP 3 (TOP POSITION) You want to pull such that at least your eyes reach over the bar – and at this point, you want to ensure that your shoulders are not rounding forward (internally rotating) and are instead retracted back. STEP 4 (DESCENT) Lower your body in a controlled manner until your arms are straight, and then repeat for another rep. As soon as you’re able to perform 8 or more bodyweight pull-ups in one set, I’d suggest adding a little bit of weight by either using a weight belt or holding a dumbbell between your feet then continue adding more weight overtime. pull workout
  • 17. @jeremyethier 17 Exercise 1 (option b): KNEELING LAT PULLDOWNS STEP 1 (SETUP) Attach a lat pulldown handle to a cable system. Grab it with an overhand grip slightly wider than shoulder-width, then kneel on the ground. STEP 2 (PULL) Engage your core before pulling, and then by using your lats pull the weight down until the bar reaches under your chin. Think about pulling down with the elbows and trying to “tuck your elbows into your back pockets” to best engage the lats. STEP 3 (RETURN) Return back to the starting position by slowly controlling the weight back up. pull workout
  • 18. @jeremyethier 18 Exercise 2: BARBELL ROW STEP 1 (SETUP) Grab a barbell with an overhand grip slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Push your hips back while bending your knees until your body is at roughly a 45 degree angle. Your back should be neutral as opposed to rounded. STEP 2 (PULL) Engage your core, and then pull the weight by driving your elbows back behind you until the bar touches your upper abdominal area. Squeeze your shoulder blades together as you pull. STEP 3 (DESCENT) Slowly lower the weight back to the starting position and fully extend the arms before proceeding for the next rep. Avoid using momentum to swing the weight up. Instead, each rep should be controlled. pull workout
  • 19. @jeremyethier 19 Exercise 3: REVERSE GRIP LAT PULLDOWNS STEP 1 (SETUP) Grab the bar with an underhand grip at roughly shoulder-width apart. Bring your upper traps down by bringing your shoulders down and away from the ears. You also want to maintain a very slight lean back in your upper body as you proceed to perform each rep. STEP 2 (PULL) Pull the bar down by bringing your elbows behind your body. Your elbows should stay close to your sides and you should pull until the bar reaches just below your chin. STEP 3 (DESCENT) Control the weight back to the starting position before repeating for another rep. Avoid using momentum to move the weight for you. pull workout
  • 20. @jeremyethier 20 EXERCISE 4: CHEST SUPPORTED REAR DELT ROW STEP 1 (SETUP) Setup an inclined bench to roughly a 30 degree angle (usually 2 notches up from the bottom position). Lay on the bench with your chest positioned towards the top of the bench and your legs extended with your feet flat on the floor for support. Grab a weighted bar infront of you with your arms hanging down, and use a wide grip that’s about 1.5x shoulder width. If you have difficulty setting up the bar in position, lift it up so that you can grab it by placing each end of the bar onto an elevated platform or weights. STEP 2 (PULL) Pull the weight up by driving your elbows up as far as you’re capable of, often the bench will limit the end range of motion for you. As you pull, your elbows shold be flared out to your sides to best activate the rear delts. Hold the top position briefly while engaging your rear delts STEP 3 (RETURN) Control the weight back to the starting position and then repeat for another rep. pull workout
  • 21. @jeremyethier 21 Exercise 5: NARROW GRIP BARBELL CURL STEP 1 Grab a barbell or weighted bar with a narrow underhand grip that’s within shoulder-width. Keep your elbows pinned to your sides. STEP 2 Curl the weight up while keeping your elbows pinned to your sides. As you curl, think about raising the weight with your pinkies to best engage the outer head of your biceps. STEP 3 Control the weight back down to the bottom position until your arms are fully extended before proceeding for another rep. pull workout
  • 22. @jeremyethier 22 STEP 1 (SET UP) Set up a cable system so that the notch is a couple notches below from the very top. Grab the rope with an overhand grip, then get down on one knee. Relax your upper traps by bringing your shoulders down and away from your ears. You want to maintain this throughout each rep. STEP 2 (PULL) Pull the rope towards your face while keeping your elbows high. Think about pulling with your elbows and squeezing your shoulder-blades together, and as you pull, you want to externally rotate your shoulder such that your knuckles are facing the ceiling. STEP 2 (PULL) You can see what I mean here at this angle, the end position is as if you were holding a “biceps flexing pose”. This helps further target the rotator cuff. STEP 3 (ECCENTRIC) Control the weight back to the starting position and then repeat for another rep. Ensure that you aren’t excessively arching or rounding your back during each rep. You should feel a strong contraction in the middle of your back. Exercise 6: kneeling face pulls pull workout
  • 23. @jeremyethier 23 Exercise 7: LYING FACE PULLS STEP 1 (SETUP) Still using the rope, raise the cable system up to the highest position. Grab the rope with an overhand grip, then lay down on your back in front of the cable system with your arms straight, knees bent and feet flat on the floor. STEP 2 (PULL) Pull the rope by pulling your elbows towards you until they touch the ground. Your elbows should be at about shoulder height. STEP 3 (ECCENTRIC) Control the weight back to the starting position and then repeat for another rep. You should feel this mainly in the back of your shoulder (rear delts). pull workout
  • 25. @jeremyethier 25 Exercise 1 (option A): BACK SQUAT STEP 1 (PLACEMENT) Grab the bar with an overhand grip slightly wider than shoulder-width. Place the bar on your upper-back (traps) by dipping under the bar. Raise your chest up and retract your shoulder blades. STEP 2 (UNRACK) Unrack the bar, take 3 steps back, then adjust your footing. Your feet should be shoulder-width apart or a little wider. You can point your toes out slightly if this is more comfortable. But play around with foot positioning to find what’s comfortable for you. STEP 3 (DESCENT) Take a deep breath in and hold it. You want to use this breath to brace your core (think about contracting your abs how you would if someone were to punch your stomach). Move your hips back while bending your knees to squat down. Squat down until your thighs are at least parallel to the ground. If you have the mobility to do so, then you can go further below parallel. STEP 4 (ASCENT) Squat back up by pushing through your heels. Keep your knees in line with your toes by thinking about “spreading the floor apart” with your feet. Avoid creeping up on your toes or collapsing your knees inward. Keep your lower back neutral and your chest up. You can exhale as you press up, or keep your breath held and then exhale at the top position. Then repeat for more reps. legs workout
  • 26. @jeremyethier 26 Exercise 1 (option b): FRONT SQUAT STEP 1 (PLACEMENT) You have a couple options as for placement of the bar for the front squat. You can place the bar on the front delts and crossover your hands OR stick both elbows forward and keep your wrists under the bar if your wrist mobility allows for this. Whichever is most comfortable for you, as long as your elbows remain high at shoulder-level as you perform the squat. STEP 2 (UNRACK) Unrack the bar, take 3 steps back, then adjust your footing. Your feet should be shoulder-width apart or a little wider. You can point your toes out slightly if this is more comfortable. But play around with foot positioning to find what’s comfortable for you. STEP 3 (DESCENT) Move your hips back while bending your knees to squat down. Squat down until your thighs are at least parallel to the ground. If you have the mobility to do so, then you can go further below parallel. STEP 4 (ASCENT) Squat back up by pushing through your mid-foot. Keep your knees inline with your toes by thinking about “spreading the floor apart” with your feet. Avoid creeping up on your toes or collapsing your knees inward. Keep your lower back neutral and your chest up. You can exhale as you press up, or keep your breath held and then exhale at the top position. Then repeat for more reps. legs workout
  • 27. @jeremyethier 27 Exercise 2: BARBELL HIP THRUST STEP 1 (SETUP) Get into the starting position by placing your shoulderblades on the bench and feet about shoulder width apart and toes slightly pointed outwards. Roll the weighted barbell over your hips into the start position. STEP 2 (THRUST) Drive you hips towards the ceiling. You want your shoulder blades to stay on the bench and your feet positioned so that your shins are vertical when in the top position. Avoid arching your lower back and instead push your hips forward into posterior pelvic tilt by contracting your glutes. At the top position, your back and butt should be inline and your chin should be tucked. STEP 3 & 4 (DESCENT) Lower back down by dropping your hips until your butt almost touches the floor, then repeat for another rep (step 4). Again, avoid any arching of the lower back and keep your glutes engaged. legs workout
  • 28. @jeremyethier 28 Exercise 3 (beginner): split squats STEP 1 (SETUP) Grab a pair of dumbbells. Take one step forward and plant your feet here. The farther your step, the more your glutes will be targeted. The closer your step, the more your quadriceps will be targeted. Choose what you’d like to focus on more. STEP 2 (DESCENT) Descend by bending your back knee until it almost touches the ground. Keep your back toes in contact with the floor just for balance, but keep most of the pressure in your front foot. STEP 3 (ASCENT) Push up by pressing against the floor with your front foot. Avoid using too much assistance from your back leg/foot. Keep your spine neutral as you do so (avoid excessively arching or rounding the lower back). legs workout
  • 29. @jeremyethier 29 EXERCISE 3 (advanced): bulgarian split squat STEP 1 (SETUP) Grab a dumbbell in each hand and place your back foot on the top of a bench or any elevated platform. Your front foot can then be positioned based on what you want to target. Take a shorter step forward if you want to target the quads more, or a longer step forward if you want to target the glutes more. STEP 2 (DESCENT) After you get your set up right, bend your front knee until your thigh is at least parallel with the ground. STEP 3 (ASCENT) Push back up through your front foot. Your heel shouldn’t raise off the floor and you want to keep your head, back, and hips aligned throughout each rep. Your upper body can lean forward slightly. Repeat for more reps. STEP 4 (CONTRALATERAL) Once you are able to balance well with the normal version, perform 2 of the 4 sets by holding onto just one (heavier) dumbbell in the opposite hand as your front leg. This will help better target the important glute medius muscle. legs workout
  • 30. @jeremyethier 30 Exercise 4: GLUTE HAM RAISE STEP 1 (SETUP) Set up the foot plate such that your feet can lay flat and your knees are positioned just behind the pad when in the starting position. The closer to the “thigh pad” you adjust the foot plate, the harder the exercise will be. So if you’re having a hard time, move the foot plate further away to lessen the lever during the movement. STEP 2 (DESCENT) Brace your core (“tighten” your abs) and slowly lower your body in a controlled fashion by contracting your hamstrings and glutes. Your knees should gradually straighten while keeping your head, back, and hips inline. Descend either to parallel to the ground or slightly below (depending on what you’re capable of). STEP 3 (ASCENT) Ascend by contracting contracting your hamstrings and glutes by bending at the knees while keeping your upper body in a straight line, and then repeat for more reps. Your upper body should move as one unit. Avoid excessive arching or rounding of the back – a little bit is fine. If you’re feeling it more in your lower back, then it’s an indication that your hamstrings/glutes are weak and you should regress the exercise either by adjusting the footplate or starting with an alternative. legs workout
