    Hey guys, suffering further lockdowns in oz again, was hoping to get your advice on a main upper back movement when I don’t have that proper chest support. I have a pretty good set up at home but just not sure exactly which is best approach to replace that chest supported T Bar when targeting upper back
    I have :
    Smith machine
    Landmine attachment but only with baby handles (can’t get those ones you guys have anywhere!)
    Cables (decent with pin loaded stack)
    An adjustable Bench
    Pull up bar and grip variations

    I’ve tried the Smith row, the bent over with baby handles, even tried sitting reverse on a bench and using the cables but struggled a bit with angles and then reaching them under weight lol

    Just thought I’d see what your approach to a pull day would be if your focus was upper back

    Thanks Joe, exactly what I was hoping for. The things I’ve tried just haven’t quite hit the mark but I haven’t tried that. The Smith has a half rack as well, so can set up the safties with the barbell to make it easier to grab initially.
    I have bands as well and the shruggy retraction thing sounds perfect
    Cheers mate, keep up the good work it’s much appreciated
