    Critique my routine

    this is my back routine

    4x Pull-Down
    3x Close Grip Pull-Down
    4x Close Grip Rows
    3x Wide Grip Rows
    4x Single DB Rows


    Since Im coming off of a shoulder injurying, Im trying to deside if doing cable rows then machine rows would be to much ( since im going to use machines for awhile to get my strength back)

    That seems like a boatload of work for 1 workout. I'd actually split that into two back workouts, as if you trained w/maximum intensity it'd be hard to do all of those sets/reps.

    Just my opinion though. You have some of the same movements repeated over and over again, and those are best split into different workouts.

    All of the rows.

    It's the same movement, just a diff. variance in grip. Your muscles really don't understand that variance of the grip change in the same workout, so I'd alternate grip changes from workout to workout. Just a preference, but I'd over-train doing the same movements like that. It's like doing flat b-bell bench, the going and hitting flat d-bell bench presses, then going to the seated flat hammer press and doing that.........way too much of the same shiznit.
