Workouts For Epic Back Muscles

July 28, 2014

Summer is almost here, and although abs and chest exercises are what everyone is concentrating on, it’s important to remember to have the back match the front.

Whether you’re trying to have better posture or have women look you up and down after you leave, you need to incorporate these intense exercises into your daily workout routine immediately.

From ring chin-ups to deadlifts, each one of these killer workouts will leave your back looking bigger and more defined. You want to get ripped? It’s time to get back to basics.

The first step on the path to a shredded back is the classic exercise known as a chin-up. Different grips can be used to target different muscle groups. Whether using a wide grip or a neutral grip, chin-ups will give your back the muscular definition it deserves.

Make sure to fully extend your arms between each rep to get the most bang for your buck. This is a great exercise and an absolute must if you want a ripped back. If you’re consistent and you stick with it, your back will be shredded in no time at all.

You’ve worked your abs, and you’ve worked your chest, so now it’s time to get that back shredded for beach season. Horizontal and vertical rows are a great way to see results fast.

Make sure to have a straight back doing these exercises so the right muscle group gets targeted.

You can do vertical rows with a pulley machine and horizontal rows with dumbbells.

If you don’t have a pulley system at your disposal, a simple and cheap alternative is a workout band. Be consistent, and you’ll have the back you always wanted.

The T-Bar machine can be found in most gyms, but if you want a real challenge, try using the tricep rope or even a towel to lift an olympic bar. Proper form is important here. Make sure your back is straight, and pull the weight up.

A good trick is to use 25-pound weights rather than 45-pounds. This will give you a better range of motion, allowing you to pull the bar back further, thus getting a better workout and targeting all the right muscles.
