Back Workout Weight Training Exercises

Back training is one of my favourite workouts and is a critical component to developing a strong muscular body.

Often times novices will not give their backs workouts the attention it needs because the back is not as visible as other muscle groups like the chest, arms, and legs. But you’ll find that as your back gets stronger, the rest of your body will get stronger as well.

A well developed back will provide a good base support for chest exercises like the bench presses and flyes. And it will also make you stronger with leg exercises such as squats and lunges.

In the video below I go over a complete back workout routine.

In this video I did…

Bent Over Barbell Rows
3 sets of 10 reps with 185 lbs.

V-Bar Pull Downs
3 sets of 10 reps with 165 lbs.

Hammer Strength Chest Supported Rows
3 sets of 10 reps with 3 plates per side.

Bodyweight Rows
3 sets of 10 reps

Hyper Extensions
3 sets of 10 reps with a 45 lbs. plate
+ 3 sets of 10 reps with bodyweight.
