Best Exercises To Grow Back Muscles

by Neighborhood Trainers Finding a trainer is a personal choice

Having strong back muscles provides more benefits than just looking good. With stronger back muscles, your posture will improve, and you'll be able to perform activities such as picking up heavy objects without straining or hurting your back.

If you are interested in growing your back muscles to get increased strength and a healthier posture, here are a few exercises to help you achieve those goals.

1. Kettlebell Swings

A kettlebell is a staple in many exercise routines. Not only is it used to develop strength and power, but it is also great for burning calories.

The kettlebell swing is an essential exercise that beginners or advanced lifters can perform. If you're beginning to lift weights, you should start with a lighter weight and build your strength over time.

To perform the kettlebell swing, stand upright while holding the weight in both hands. Your feet should be shoulder-width apart from each other and face forward.

Then, bend your knees and hips to lower the kettlebell between your legs. Drive your heels into the ground as you explosively extend your hips and swing the kettlebell up to shoulder height. Keep your arms straight, and don't let the kettlebell touch the ground.

2. Deadlifts

The deadlift is a fantastic exercise for the back, leg, glute, and core muscles.

To execute the deadlift properly:

·         Place a barbell on the floor with your feet hip-width apart from each other.

·         Bend down to grip the bar at shoulder width spacing with one hand over another.

·         Push through the heels as you lift the barbell, maintaining a neutral spine and avoiding rounding your back.

Once you have completed the lift, lower the barbell back to the ground by bending at your hips and keeping your legs stiff.

3. Pull-Ups

Pull-ups are an excellent exercise for developing strong back muscles. To perform this exercise, grab a pull-up bar with an overhand grip. Be sure to keep your shoulder blades retracted and your core engaged.

Then, pull your body weight up until your chin is above the bar, lower back to the starting position, and repeat. If you find that you can't complete a full pull-up, then your New York City personal trainer will probably recommend to use assistance from a band.

Tips for success

To ensure that you engage and grow your back muscles, any New York personal trainer will tell you it's essential that you include stretching exercises after you have completed a weight-lifting routine.
