Eugene Teo Shares His Top 2 Exercises to Build Big Back Muscles

Australian trainer Eugene Teo wants to help you to grow big muscles. He’s shared his two favorite moves that have helped him build size and strength in his quads, along with his top exercises that have taken his biceps growth to the next level. Now, he’s sharing his two go-to exercises to get serious back gains.

In case you’re wondering no: neither of these exercises are a pullup.

Exercise 1: Lat Pulldown

Teo loves a lat pulldown, but has a different technique to his than what you may do traditionally. And that’s because he takes major issue with the traditional lat pulldown for two reason.

Reason 1: The setup doesn’t provide much stability.
“The only thing holding you in position in a typical lat pulldown is your legs being anchored into position,” says Teo. “It’s sufficient, but with your torso being suspended in mid-air like this, you have to expend

Gigi Jordan retrial: Millionaire mom killed autistic son, 8, whom she ‘loved more than anything in this world’

A Manhattan federal judge found on Friday, September 25, that former Manhattan pharmaceutical exec Gigi Jordan’s Sixth Amendment right to a public trial was violated. In 2014, the Manhattan Supreme Court judge who presided at her nine-week trial conducted a hearing outside public view about a post Jordan wrote about her case on the internet. According to a Manhattan federal magistrate, this action has voided the wealthy New York socialite’s 2014 manslaughter trial after which she was sentenced to 18 years for giving a fatal dose of prescription pills to her eight-year-old son Jude Mirra, who suffered from autism.
