Bodybuilding Training | Lower Back and Hamstrings Routine – Cutting Phase Workout
In this video I go through this weeks Lower Back workout and Hamstrings workout, where I perform a mix of compound and isolation movements with a medium to high intensity and varying rep ranges. The goal is to maintain strength whilst cutting.
The Leg exercises that I use for my Hamstrings workout include Romanian Deadlifts, Rack Pulls (which hit the Glutes and Lower Back) and Conventional Deadlifts, along with Leg Curls although I didn’t do the latter on this occasion. Another top leg exercise is the Good Morning which is also not shown in this video but really helps by fully stretching hamstrings deeply.
Currently on Week 8 of my Cutting Phase, body weight is down at 180lbs. I’m not trying to build muscle here as I am in a calorie deficit, I’m just trying to maintain strength. If you want to gain muscle you NEED to be in a calorie surplus. That and these exercises will help you to get big legs!
I did not perform my usual volume or range of exercises as usual, fatigue has gotten the better of me… Will kill it next week.
