In a bid to better educate fitness enthusiasts on proper exercise techniques, Fitness Instructor Eric Janicki recently did a FULL BACK DAY video tutorial featuring fellow workout enthusiast Tristyn Lee. The day's focus was on the pull down movement, with the aim to really dig into the lower lats for a comprehensive stretch and contraction.

Janicki introduced the use of the Mag grip, a supremely designed piece of equipment that guarantees a supinated grip essential for effective exercising. The demonstration was done in phases with each stage focusing on a specific area.

In the initial phase, emphasis was on executing each rep slowly while bearing in mind the conscious engagement of the lats and the biceps. "Squeeze and then consciously let it up with your lats" Janicki advised, as he explained the need for a scooping motion synonymous to a pullover.

Modality was introduced in the session, which saw slower squeezes in the beginning and acceleration towards the end. This change from slow to fast movements is known to enhance the mind-muscle connection and induce hypoxicity. Hypoxicity entails increased blood flow in the tissue, which reduces the amount of oxygen available for it. According to Janicki, "You've got a lot of basically blood flow in that tissue you're reducing the amount of oxygen available for it."

After achieving hypoxicity, Janicki recommended firing through 10 to 12 reps with a good squeeze on the negative, concluding with four to six faster reps. The goal is not just to move but also to create a deep stretch in the body, ensuring no rep or set is wasted.

The parting shot from Janicki underscored the importance of slow negatives and peak contraction points for any workout. His parting shot was simple, "Stay healthy, focus not just on topping weight, but also on intentionality and specificity in the way you train."

Tristyn Lee complemented this insightful session by highlighting that focusing not just on progressive overload but also on progressive over stimulus is just as important. This helps avoid injury and assure more fruitful results.

These detailed insights by Eric Janicki and Tristyn Lee into executing a full back day workout are expected to motivate and educate fitness enthusiasts on how to derive maximum benefit from their workouts while ensuring they remain injury-free
