5 Exercises for a perfect BACK with @joaosrafaelr
Anyone with an impressive back will tell you that pull-ups are a staple in their training routine. Starting and ending a back workout with a few sets pull-ups is sure to make you sore and offers a great pump/stretch. This is the ultimate old school exercise for an aesthetically pleasing and defined back and could be the tool you need to really step up your back game. And don’t even get me started on what pull-ups can do for your V-taper... 2. Bent-Over Barbell Row
This is probably the second-best back movement in terms of sheer weight you can lift. EMG research has suggested that hitting bent-over barbell rows will work the larger muscle groups of the upper and lower back equally, making this a great overall back builder. Like the deadlift, this is another technical move that requires excellent form but rewards you with a ton of muscle.
3. Lat pull-downs
One of, if not the most crucial exercise for building width in the Latissimus Dorsi muscles. If you’re striving for the V-taper body with wide shoulders/back and a small waist, this is the exercise you should perform to accentuate that look.
This exercise is one where you can truly showcase your strength, but it is all about form, form, form. If you want to increase thickness in your Trapezius and Latissimus Dorsi muscles, this is the fastest muscle-building exercise. But for most people, performing the deadlift is posing more risk than reward. But for those select few who can practice and master the deadlift, the rewards heavily start to outweigh the risks. 5. Seated Cable Rows
Along with pull-ups, this exercise is the best for achieving more definition in your back muscles. Great for building thickness in the Latissimus Dorsi and Trapezius muscles.
