Purposefully Primitive Back and Biceps Week 1

-Deadlift: 275x6, 295x6, 315x6, 335x6, 355x6, 375x6
*These sets were fairly good since I know my weights already. I will bump 10lbs next week and every week until I cannot get 6 for my last set. Then I will work at that level until I am able.

-Romanian Deadlift (Elevated on 45lbs Bumpers): 135x6, 155x6, 175x6, 195x6, 225x6, 245x6
*Can start at a higher weight next week, this was fairly easy until I hit 245, I need my bottom sets to start higher.

-70-Degree Row: 95x6, 105x6, 115x6, 135x6, 155x6, 175x6
*Was feeling out the weights, I can certainly do more than even the top set. Going to start with a higher load. This felt really good, legs were a bit wobbly after the Deadlift AND Romanian Deadlift...

-Dumbbell Row: 60x6, 70x6, 80x6, 90x6, 95x6, 100x4
*Sticking to this until I can get 100x6 then I'll bump every set 5lbs.

-Barbell Curl / Finger Roll Superset: 75x6, 80x6, 80x6, 85x5, 85x4, 90x3
*This was certainly difficult after my grip AND biceps were already fatigued. Basically polished them off and that was that. Not really looking to have a big barbell curl, just looking to have at least 1 isolation exercise for it.

-Rowing Intervals (30:30): 18 minutes for 20 rows per 30 second interval.
*I was going to stop at either 20 minutes, or the first time I didn't get the 20 rows in 30 seconds. Needless to say I failed at the 18th round (by one freaking row!) and quit.

Overall a good workout but I think I need more for my back which is (next to my legs), the strongest muscle.
