GET WIDE. The LAT ATTACK Workout is a hard-hitting back workout that primarily attacks the LATS, back muscles that add width, definition, and a V-shape from behind. It all finishes with a lightning-fast ab circuit and rowing HIIT cardio to blow up FAT.
Inverted row. Main muscles worked: Latissimus Dorsi, Middle and Lower Trapezii, Rhomboids, Teres Major, Teres Minor, Infraspinatus, Posterior Deltoid, Pectoralis Major, Brachialis, and Brachioradialis. Also known as the fat man pull-up, the body row, and the supine row.
Bent over two arm dumbbell row. A major compound exercise! Target muscle: None. Multiple back, arm, and shoulder muscles work synergistically. Synergistic muscles: Latissimus Dorsi, Teres Major, Posterior Deltoid, Middle and Lower Trapezius, Rhomboids, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor, Brachialis, Brachioradialis, and Sternal (Lower) Pectoralis Major. The Biceps Brachii and the Long Head of the Triceps Brachii act as dynamic stabilizers.
Bent-over barbell reverse raise. An isolation exercise. Target muscle: Posterior Deltoid. Synergists: Latissimus Dorsi, Teres Major, Lower (Sternal) Pectoralis Major, and Triceps Brachii (long head only). NOTE: The synergists are involved only up to the point of where your upper arms are directly by the side of your body. Beyond that point (shoulder hyperextension), only your posterior deltoid is involved.
Bent over barbell row. A major compound pull exercise! Main muscles worked: Latissimus Dorsi, Middle and Lower Trapezii, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor, Rhomboids, Teres Major, Brachialis, Brachioradialis, Pectoralis Major, and Posterior Deltoid.
