At-Home Minimal Chest and Back Workout

Little-to-no equipment? Sometimes I find myself in the same situation. Whether it’s trying to get through a disaster or deployed with the military I’ve always tried my best to make something from virtually nothing.

Below is a super simple, minimal equipment, at-home chest and back workout. It uses some household equipment I bet you have plus I’ve included some optional things to do to make things more challenging.

High Rep Chest and Back Training: Massive Pump!

Okay, time to round-out this short series on my new adventure into high rep training. Here I’ll outline my chest and back routine using high rep sets. My shoulder and arm routine felt so great that I then applied it to my leg training. With those two routines I felt no shoulder, knee, or back strain and was able to have some seriously great workouts.

Now all we have left is chest and back training. As I’ve most-likely stated before, I’m a huge fan of training a few body parts in each session. I’ve never been a “chest on Monday” kind of guy. I’m still a big fan of the bodybuilders of the 60s and 70s and their training frequency so yeah, works for me.

Let’s break down what my last chest and back routine looked like and then I’ll jot down a few notes at the end.

My Current Chest and Back Training Routine

I’m a firm believer in training a lot in one session. This does’t necessarily mean I spend a ton of time in the gym (currently one hour), it just means I like to pack a lot of training into each session. I’m not one to bring my phone with me, stare at the TV (I hate those in gyms!), or chat up someone about nonsense for 15 minutes at a time.

When I tell people I like to train chest and back in the same workout they often look at me with a little confusion. You see, I don’t perform a ton of sets for each body part. I do what I need to do and get out. There’s other things I need to attend to like a family and stuff.

As I stated in my leg training post, I’m a big fan of A/B training routines. They spark interest and keep the gains going. So I apply the same to my chest and back training.

How to Train Your Back for More Muscle

We all have our strengths and weaknesses. I’m not so good with pushing. I’ve never been good at bench presses, squats, or shoulder presses, but I am a puller. I can do pull ups and chin ups for days, row with pretty considerable weight and curl ’til the cows come home. Since I have long arms they provide me with good levers to do this. I’ll show you how to train your back for more muscle.
