    Default Beyond Bodybuilding question: "Hot wheels by summer" - what to do for the upper body?

    I am contemplating starting the "Hot Wheels By Summer" routine from "Beyond Bodybuilding". I will take a 10 days lay off before it, to be fresh and ready to go. But I wonder what I should do for the upper body (I do not want to lose muscle mass or even worse, the hard earned strength, in the upper body)?

    Any ideas, Comrades?

    I'm thinking some nice mix of benching, overhead press and pull ups. Maybe some rows.

    Looking forward to seeing how this thread turns out.. been pondering this very program sometime next year.

    Benching - yes. Overhead presses - maybe not: there is some serious strain on your spine, 3 sessions/week. Perhaps Incling Benches would be better. Pull ups - they are great, for those who can do them :-) ; I think they do wonders for spinal decompression/rehab, too.

    But I wonder how much is too much - doing The Bear with Incline press 2 times per week, for example, is already too much? Or I would be better doing the Arm Specialization Fatique Cycling routine from "Beyond Bodybuilding" (I remember Comrade Pavel recomends doing 20rep squats for the legs with the arm specialisation protocol, two times/week or so)?
