    I'm guessing my form is screwed up on one of these excersies. This has never happened before. Also note that I just added the pullups this week I've never done them before (cant see how this could be it though).

    ----

    Back, Biceps

    Heavy Weights
    3 second negative on work sets
    2 warmup sets
    5 min warmup (running)

    Assisted Pull-Ups, wide grip - 4 sets of 6
    Bent Over Rows, Barbell - 2 WU sets 8x30, 5 sets 8x65 6x80 4x90 2x100 12x30(burnout set)
    Bicep Curls, DBs standing - 2 WU sets 8x10, 4 sets of 8x15 8x15 8x15 4x20
    +3 Supersets of EZ-bar curls 8x35 8x35 8x35
    Crunches - 4x15xbw

    ----

    One thing is the weight for my bent over rows needs to come down big time next week.. at 90lbs my form is terrible I can't bring it all the way up.. (you bring it up to your waist not your chest, right?)

    Thanks

    The exrx guy's form isn't great on a lot of his gif demonstrations.

    Your chest probably hurts because of pullups.

    one more question... my abs are never sore the next day or just plain ever. Not even a little bit. Is this not good or is it accecptable? I know soreness doesn't = good workout but I'm just wondering if I am working them hard enough. I do 4 sets of 15 cruches 3 times a week.

    Lets see here...you have never had a specific muscle group hurt from a specific set of exercises. You add in another exercise, and another muscle group hurts...odds are this exercise is the culprit :duh:

    Just messing around, it was probably the pullups broly.

    Never complain when your muscles are sore, that means they are getting stronger :)

    But don't think that just because they aren't sore that you can go ahead and keep working them and overtraining them...

    if your abs don't hurt, you're not doing enough
