Build Your Back Muscles

Build your back muscles to avoid injuries and keep your upper body in muscular balance. Many people put too much emphasis on the frontside of their bodies with exercises like bench press and ab exercises. Your back is an important part of your core muscles so don't ignore them.

Seventy to 80% of Americans have back pain (many times low back pain) at some point. The spine also needs to be protected. Here are some common back exercises that I do on a regular basis:

--single arm bentover row or seated row
--pullups or chinups
--back extension or superman back extension
--cobras, planks, superman and bridges
--lat pulldowns
--inverted rows
--deadlift, good mornings and squats

When you don't adequately strengthen your back muscles, you are affecting your pulling potential.

Remember, your back muscles can look good (or terrible) in the mirror too!
