    I watched the overview video that Bryce made and he discussed how back training is split into horizontal and vertical. Looking into it, I see that only pull A has an upper back movement— tbar rows for the week. Perhaps this just means the lat training covers a lot of the upper back, or upper back training isn’t as necessary as lats?

    Also, what are your thoughts on the meadows row? Is it better or worse than the tbar row in terms of stability over time?

    Thanks!

    It’s got machine pulldown which to some degree target upper back aswell and banded RDL on lower b days which destroys My upper back 😅

    Thing is I’m pretty sure machine Pulldown is meant with the intent of lats and I don’t really feel rdls in my back

    Idk the video Joe made for it made it seem like he was doing all the best to maxamize lat and minimize upper back

    Thanks bryce! Also may I ask why there’s so many rest days? It’s listed as 2 on 1 off, when usually it’s 6 on 1 off
