And, finally, my favorite reason: Ladies love men with V-shaped torsos. Studies have shown that women are most drawn to muscular men whose shoulders measure 1.6 times the size of their waist. The only way to chisel a ripped torso that's wide on top and narrow at the bottom is to do back exercises. Now are you ready to work your back more? Get started with some of my favorite exercises that work your entire back.

Back Exercises For Men

Exercise is good for low back pain — but not all exercises are beneficial. Any mild discomfort felt at the start of these exercises should disappear as muscles become stronger. But if pain is more than mild and lasts more than 15 minutes during exercise, patients should stop exercising and contact a doctor. Some exercises may aggravate pain. Standing toe touches, for example, put greater stress on the disks and ligaments in your spine. They can also overstretch lower back muscles and hamstrings.

Just a quick question: Is it possible to build a solid back with heavy cable rows, heavy wide grip pulldowns, heavy shrugs (for traps) and facepulls (for rear delts)? I have a tumor in my knee, so I can’t really do any “standing exercises” that put too much weight (or stress) on my knee. Also, what do you think about Back thickness vs. Back with? I feel like my back is already wide enough, but I want it to really “pop” more. I want a 3D back that looks thick from the side. How do I get that look? Again, are the exercises I mentioned above enough for a thick back?

Hey MikeQuick question for you. For my back routine, I am doing the following 3 exercises in this order: Deadlift, Barbell Row, Dumbell Row. Is this a good routine? Am I hitting all areas of the back that should be hit?Also, I can only lift 3 days per week. M (chest and tri), W (back and bi), F (shoulders and legs). The only problem, particularly on back/bi days, by the time I get to the biceps exercises, my muscles are feeling drained from the back workout. Anything to be done to remedy this other than going additional days?Thanks!

Hi Mike. I like your program, but the problem is that you have given me 7 exercises to do, whereas your workout plan has 4. How do I make this add up? Are some of them different variations of each other? If not: Let’s say i divide it up to two different back days (1 of each every week), and the one you listed is Back Day 1. What exercises would you recommend for Back Day 2?

Hey Mike!Warning: Lot of textQuestion about form while doing back exercises. During my first few years of lifting, I had quite a few injuries in my back and shoulders. I figured it was because of bad/sloppy form, so I started to focus on improving my form. This really helped, and the injuries disappeared.The number one thing i changed, after reading articled, was to pull by shoulders down and back, and squeezing my shoulder blades together during lifts, and keeping them tight through the lift. I do this both while pushing and pulling. While I do lat-pulldowns, pull ups, deadlifts, shoulder press, bench press, dips or pullovers, I do this.As I mentioned above, this have worked wonders for my back and shoulder health, but my back development have not been very good, though I have added weight on a regular basis. I feel like pulling shoulders back and down, and arching my back slightly, makes my contact/activation of the muscle weaker.Example; if I do lat-pulldown or dumbbell pullovers with shoulders in neutral position, I get great contact with the muscles. On the other hand, if I pull my shoulders back, I dont get as good contact with the muscles (lats). Same goes for bench press, no injuries, but less chest contact/squeeze/activation.Whats your take om this? When to do it? And when to skip it?Thanks in advance Mike!Simon
