    Questions about the "Big Back Workout"

    Hi there! I have a few questions if you'd like to answer them.

    https://darebee.com/workouts/big-back-workout.html

    How is this workout supposed to pan out?

    Should I do each exercise one at a time with no breaks in-between? Then repeating this circuit 4 times?

    I've been doing it like that for a week but I feel like that's incorrect.
    Also, there are 2 exercises I have problems with. The push-ups renegade rows are the hardest by far so I can barely do 1 rep. Instead I'm doing regular pushups which are already hard for me to do without running out of stamina at 10 reps.
    The other exercise I have trouble with are deadlifts, which ironically I find too easy to do. I do feel some tension in my lower back muscles at the end, but overall it feels effortless.

    So, knowing that, should I change up things in this workout or not?

    Because I really like this routine other than that, I find the exercises fun and my back and posture feels stronger day by day.

    I also use this one for posture work: https://darebee.com/workouts/posture...t-workout.html

    Cheers. I'd be happy to hear your opinions

    It usually works like this: do all sets of an exercise with 20 sec res between sets (4 sets), take a 30 sec to 2 min break between one exercise and the next and then move on to the next exercise.
    The easiest way to make a weight training exercise harder or easier is to vary the weight you use, this way you can continue to use a training pattern you like and progress

      Thanks for the infos man, it helps a lot.
      I like this way. At some point I will switch to heavier dumbbells, it does say on the workout page extra credit for using 8kg+ dumbbells

        dbcooper Darebee always tries to simplify to make the workouts affordable for everyone but if you have a set of dumbbells available you can better dose the effort for each exercise by choosing the right weight for you so as to make the workout to your perfect fit

          Ohhh yeah got you! That's a good idea, I will go heavier weights on deadlifts to make each exercise equally intense

            What Fremen said. 2kg dumbbell handles, spring clips and a range of weights. It's economical, not fancy, but who has the space for a whole rack of chrome plated dumbbells.

              We mere mortals have to deal with the space available and even the budget
              I hid the weights in the back of a closet and use the kettlebells as a doorstop
