Back Exercises


Firstly, you should know that your lats and your traps are your largest back muscles.  The rest of your back is built up of much smaller muscle groups.  For that reason your back exercises will need to be well rounded to ensure that you are correctly targeting those smaller muscles.

All exercises have their time and place in your routine so be sure to work all of your exercises according to your overall goals.

Note that the weight you choose to work with, reps and sets as well as where you place these exercises in your workout routine all contribute to your outcomes.

Each of the exercises listed below links to more information and instructions on how to perform the exercise correctly.

Remember that we are all different.  What worked for somebody else may not work for you.  For that reason; you are encouraged to try different back exercises and approaches.  This is so that over time you will be able to find your ‘sweet spot’.  

These individual exercises should be considered as part of your overall game plan.  Avoid repeating the same back exercises over and over.  You should be switching things up regularly for best results.  You should also keep a dedicated record of all of your exercises and your progress.  Be sure to get yourself a note pad or our dedicated tracker
