Your back is comprised of a number of different muscles which, together, form the biggest muscle group of your upper-body, and the second-biggest muscle group in your body. So it’s surprising that, for many people, it’s also one of the least trained muscle groups.
Apart from being one of the most aesthetically pleasing areas you can train, your back muscles are also used in just about every activity you do. As a result, increasing your back strength will help you be more awesome with your other workouts too.
Going back to aesthetics, if you’ve always wanted a smaller waist (like most of us) then training your back (mainly the latissimus dorsi a.k.a. lats) will help give the illusion of a skinny little waist, even if you don’t have the genetics for that normally. In addition to that, and probably one of the best reasons to train your back, is that will give you much better posture by pulling your shoulders back and down – you will definitely notice the difference.
So, let’s bring sexy back with this sexy back workout!
Beautiful Back Workout
For this workout you’re going to need access to a suspended bar, dumbbells, barbells or kettlebells. Training your back is definitely easier at a gym or home gym because most of the best exercises need some form of equipment.
Pull ups are one of the best back exercises you can do, so if you’re not a member of a gym you can either improvise (think jungle gym, etc.) or you can get yourself a pull-up bar for your home.
Deadlifts? Hey wait a second, aren’t those for legs? Well, they work the hamstrings, glutes and lower back, in fact, they’re a great full-body exercise (provided you lift heavy enough), but if you already did them with a leg workout the day before, then skip them in this workout.
