The Good Old Bodybuilder’s Workout for your Back and Chest

This image might not have any link with the workout illustrated by Tim McComsey

This is not necessarily your usual bodybuilder’s back and chest workout. You will generally see biceps coupled with the back and triceps coupled with the chest. This classic push-pull workout routine is for your bigger muscles. You will get an extreme pump from this workout. 

This workout is illustrated by Tim McComsey, a fitness coach, registered dietician, and a frequent professional contributor to Men’s Fitness and Human Fit Project.
