BACK IT UP! Back Blast with Ian Lauer CSCS, IFBB PRO

BC_47265I can’t overemphasize how important back development is for the look of your overall physique.  Back training is especially important for Men’s Physique competitors.  MP guys have to be sure to bring that much desired V-Taper to the stage and big lats and a tight waist are the way to make that happen.

Today, I blasted through what is a typical back day for me.  If you’re back is lagging then perhaps you should give this routine a try!  (Use weights appropriate for you!)

I of course have my ProFight UNLEASH mocha flavor to get amped up to bring my best into the workout.

After the workouts I have my PURE WHEY COMPLEX to immediately refuel the trashed muscles!  I like a protein powder to supply the necessary building blocks as quickly as possible.  Once I get home from the gym I’m sure to have my standard prep meals from ICON MEALS to keep the growth underway.
