Back Workouts emphasize overall muscle strength, especially working your lats. Push as hard as you can throughout the workout. Proper breathing is important during back workouts. Remember to breath in during the resting phases, and breath out during the power phases.

For example, for lat push downs, you want to exhale on the way down, and inhale on the way back up. For dead lifts, you want to inhale as you lower the weight down. Then, you want to exhale as you lift the weight back up. Breathing correctly will help make your back workouts more effective. You will continue to get the blood flowing to your lats, and may even be able to do more reps.

Back Workouts require that you push yourself, but make sure not to use your body weight. Instead, focus on the lat muscles that you are trying to train. Make sure to let them do the work throughout your back workouts. Do 3 sets of each exercise. 6-8 reps of each exercise.


This muscle building workout can be done by men or women. People often do back workouts twice a week. You can alternate back workouts with chest workouts, so that you are working a different side of your body each day.
