A Monstrous Back: The Mountain Dog Wayby John Meadows on November 1, 2010
In my early days of competing, I modeled my leg training after Tom Platz as he had the best legs in the world. Not surprisingly, the Eagle’s training philosophy served me well back then and continues to do so today.
For my back training, I tried to emulate the great Lee Haney. I performed a ton of the tried and true staples: chins, barbell rows, and dumbbell rows. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the same incredible results that Lee Haney did.
I tried a few other routines from legends that had monstrous backs, like Dorian Yates and Bertil Fox, to name a couple.
