Josh, I wondered what you thought about this approach to back training. I have read before about your mechanical advantage dropsets. I am having a hard time bringing up my back width. I have done chin up and pull ups from time to time but have never really dedicated to them for a prolonged period of time. I recenly saw a exercise called the extended gymnast pullup protocol:

Wide grip pronated pullups to just shy of failure, ten second break, medium grip pronated pullups, ten second break, medium grip supinated grip pullups, ten second break, then neutral grip to failure. Rest a few minutes and repeat twice.

Do you think this is a good approach? How many times a week do you think I should do this?

I think you can do that least twice a week James!! I like it, eventually vary rep schemes and add weight BUT yes, that is a mechanical advantage drop set.

Excellent find.

Josh Bryant
