Today we would like to present you with a list of 8 exercises to build a backside that turns heads. Your back is one of the most important parts of your body; back muscles support your spine, aid daily movements, strengthen shoulders, chest, and core. As you can see, this body area definitely needs an effective workout!
Well, you should add exercises such as Straight-Leg Deadlift, Split Stance Extension, Alternating Dumbbell Row, Deadlifts, Kneeling Rear Fly, Opposite Arm and Leg Balance, Spine Extensions, and Bridge to your workout routine. Our exercises will target the muscles in your upper back to help you stand tall and straight.
You need to complete 3 sets of 15 reps for each exercise, unless otherwise noted. What’s more, you should use a weight that is heavy enough so that you can perform no more than 15 reps with proper form (8-to-20-pound dumbbells). Each move of our backside workout will leave you feeling amazing, so you will look forward to your next workout. We promise!
And now roll out your mat, pull on your favorite yoga pants, grab a bottle of water and start performing our 8 effective exercises for a real burn! And do not forget that a strong and toned back is a key to perfect posture and preventing back pain! Below you will find instructions how to perform each exercise to avoid injury and stretching.
