*Focus: Control should be shown across sets. Athlete should keep core engaged and avoid kipping. Band across rig is encouraged if strict reps are not possible and should be set at a height that allows for desired number of rep but no more.
Rest 90 sec b/t sets
Bent-over Barbell Row
5 sets: 8-10 reps (Increasing weight across sets) - Athletes can use a double overhand or double underhand row. Barbell should not touch the ground between reps and there should be minimal kipping of the bar.
*Focus: Strong contraction of the back/pulling back with the elbow not the hands. Barbell should come to the hips/lower abdomen
Single Arm Dumbbell Row
4 sets: 10-12 reps (Increasing weight across sets) - Athlete can brace against a bench, waist height object, or their own body
*Focus: Same as Barbell row above
Standing Barbell Curl
4 sets: 10 reps (Weight should allow for quality reps and minimal kipping of bar)
*Focus: Shoulder width grip focusing on bicep contraction at top of rep.
Standing Alternating Dumbbell Curl + Double Head Dumbbell Curl
3 set: 10 alternating curls (each side) + immediately into 10 double head DB curl. (Weight should feel moderate for alternating curls and then stay the same or slightly increase for double head curl)
*Focus: Do not be tempted to go heavy on the first weight for alt. Dumbbell curls. For double head Dumbbell curl, lean forward slightly and stay within ROM that keep tension on biceps
