I’m sure you’ve seen that guy in the gym that’s really big but their physique just doesn’t look very balanced. The shoulders or chest could be too big and out of proportion, or the arms look too big for the back, or something like that. When building your upper body it’s important to keep everything balanced. One of the biggest mistakes that people make when trying to build upper body muscle is working the chest more than back. The chest is an impressive muscle, something you can see in the mirror and want to work hard. But don’t neglect your back or you’ll look out of balance!
Guys who work their chest too much and their back not enough tend to look like their shoulders are “pulled forward”. This is not a good look. To combat this make sure you’re hitting your back with the same intensity that you hit your chest, big weights and majority compound exercises. Switch up your workout routine every 4-8 weeks and make the back a priority. Do this and you’ll be on your way to building a well balanced physique.
