SO doing back exercises is SO SO important. I do back-day twice a week. The last thing you want is:
1. rounded shoulders
2. a hunched back
3. a soft looking back
let’s be honest, everyone wants a pretty ‘cut’ back – and here’s how to!
ever notice those people at the gym that are JACKED from the front than they turn around in their grimey little wife-beater and behind their shoulder blades is just like NOT jacked?! yeah, they skip back day. no bueno.
also, strengthening your back is great for posture and helps reduce any lower back pain.
ok so below are a few of my favorite back exercises – some videos some screen shots because I had already uploaded the video than deleted it off my phone. whoops!
12 reps 3 sets. i add 5 lbs each rep
incline upright rows (that crazy looking machine where you sit on it and lean on the chest rest
(this is a day I did a lighter rep and kept going until fatigued – which is also a fun switch up)
whatever these are called lol
and use your back to pull you up – also works the glutes!
20 reps for lighter weight or 12 for heavy – 3 sets
