My training is actually tougher than ever before. Still squat, bench, dead 4x a week, just no light days at the moment.
Properly done face pulls and pull aparts are good for the upper back, but your posture will improve more by actually having good posture throughout the day.
Holy fuck my arms hurt. Anyone else get this? Only after doing back exercises (specifically rope climbs and pullups) my arms feel weak and shaky, it's difficult to grip hard. Arms feel like they were crushed in a machine. Think I overtrained, going to do abs/legs/cardio for awhile.
Not so much that you overtrained. Rather, you worked some areas you probably don't hit too often, i.e. muscles, tendons and ligaments in the hands and forearms. Rope climbs and pullups require grip strength.
Ever climbed or boldered before? Same principle, only it takes a lot longer to build up tendons and ligaments as opposed to muscle. You probably smoked your Ts and Ls in addition to your hand and forearm muscles, so you're really feeling it now.
