Back It Up: Back Workout Routine

Nothing shouts “I workout” more than a beefy and wide back. A strong and muscular back demands respect and gives you an aesthetic physique. A strong back is a must if you want to lift heavy weight so here is a routine you can use on back day.

Regardless if you do body part splits, push/pull split, or any other split, you can use this to train your back for mass and strength.

On your day you train back, try this routine out! This routine utilizes the rep-goal scheme. Good form and quality work trumps heavy weight so be sure to be safe, train hard, and have great form if you want to build slabs of beef on your back.

For Pull Ups, do as many as possible (AMAP). Each set should be as close to a burn out set as possible.

If you decide to add this routine into your training, be sure to start with weights you can easily do and progress to heavier weights. Be sure to log your work and strive to add one more rep or 5 more pounds to the bar every time you step into the gym.
