The back is one of the hardest body parts to train, next to legs!
It is energy draining when trained properly ! Also you can’t see your back when training it and sometimes it becomes very hard to focus on. If I went around my gym and asked people if they were satisfied with their back workouts, most would say no!
Your upper back muscles and lats form one of the largest areas of the upper body and therefore essential in hypertrophy workouts as well as fat loss workouts. Because these areas are so significant, back strengthening exercises will help you improve your maxes on most other upper body lifts.
It is very important to train your back muscles for posture because most of us sit all day long at work, and our shoulders tend to roll forward. Most men will focus on their chest in the gym, which will give them muscle imbalances as well as more rounding of the shoulders, which will create that slouchy “ape” look when they stand. We need to fix this by doing more pulling exercises of the upper back, traps, lats and also your rear deltoids (part of the shoulder muscles).
Anyway here are three back workouts which we love!
This routine can be done by both male and female.
How much weight you use is up to you. Try to finish desired reps with the weights you choose.
- Underhand grip lat pulldowns 3 x 15
- Low cable rows 3 x 15
- Bodyweight rows 3x Failure
