Tapered - Back & Chest with Chase Bergner
Combining antagonist muscle groups has many benefits including: 1) efficient use of time 2) massive boost in metabolism 3) incredible pump
For Chase Bergner, pairing chest and back works great for him not only for the massive pump in the deltoids and lats, 2 of the most important components to the Tapered look, but also because he can connect with his rear delts a lot better this way. Check out his lifts and some of the intermittent stretching and total ROM failure that he does.
