When it comes to exercising your back, it’s unfortunate that not all workouts are created equal. That’s why it’s important to do the very best workouts for your back as well as your core muscle group, not to mention practice perfect technique in order to avoid injury and reduce wear and tear.
Below, Scorca Chiropractic goes over a few training tips to keep in mind when working out your back muscles.
Go Lighter Weight
Stop loading huge amounts of weight when working out your back. Instead, go for higher reps with a lower weight. Use kettlebells instead of barbells.
Pull-ups are great for your back, great for strength training, and even help improve your posture and decompress your spine. Again, make sure to practice perfect form.
If you’re working with kettlebells or thinking about getting some rowing action in, try to get your heart rate up during your workout to enjoy cardio benefits.
