This was another great workout! I hit small PRs on everything, minus the 2 new exercises.
 
Ok, let’s talk about the new exercises that I did here. The first one is the Jansen rear delt row. This is ANOTHER new exercise that I invented. This time, it’s for the rear delts. I recommend watching the video once I have it posted. For now, I’ll do my best to explain.
 
You are going to use a lat pulldown station for this exercise. You want the bar with the ultra-wide / neutral handle attachment. For this movement, you grab the bar, and then lean WAY BACK. Your goal is to “row” the weight into your upper chest / neck area using nothing but your rear delts. You hold the contraction for 1-2 seconds, then lower the weight to the starting position.
 
The combination of the wide / neutral grip makes this exercise all rear delts. I think it’s MUCH easier to perform this exercise this way, than it is with a regular seated cable row station.
 
The 1-arm eccentric band pushdown is my new triceps widowmaker movement. As usual, this is an exercise I invented. You use 2 hands to push the band down, and then you perform the eccentric range with 1 hand. This lets you eccentrically overload your triceps with very heavy band tension.
 
To increase the resistance, you just grab the band further up. I use my hands to measure how far up the band I am grabbing. I believe this exercise works best as a “finisher” movement for high reps. Highly recommended!
