    simple but great back workout

    So I've switched up my back routine, I was searching on youtube for ideas and came across this workout right here.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbbpGYnTHP0

    This was a really good exercise, I felt like I was hitting muscles that I never hit before, especially in the lower back area. Just wanted to share, I highly recommend ****in with it cuz now I feel like my back development was incomplete before (and I used to do pullups wide and close, deadlift, and cable rows, and sometimes lat pulldown). I hope you find this useful.

    yup they are good. i suggest a pause at the top and to use a bar instead of a plate.

    ghrs, good mornings are also great

    I think its called lower back extensions. Here's another video of it

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpX6wyKBM_g

    You're basically on a bench angled at 45 degrees, feet at bottom head on top, facing the floor. The bench is in contact with your legs, but your upper body is free, so you bend forward at the waist, toward the floor, and then pull your upper body back up so that its in a straight plane with your legs.

    I think its pretty clutch. I never felt like any of my back workouts ever targeted my lower back, so it seems kinda necessary for full back development.

    I'm a big fan of back extensions. i keep the pad lower than my pelvis so my back can round. 3x10 with a 25lb gives a great burn.

    Agreed about the pause, really intensifies the work out.

    When you say bar instead of a plate - are you referring to a barbell?

    OP IMO lat pull downs should be added to all back work outs. It must be a staple along with dumbell rows

    yea, those are def solid. The thing about this particular one tho is that it seems to hit muscles that most workouts don't hit. I've been working out for a while now, and feel I've had some pretty solid back routines, but until I did this exercise it just never crossed my mind to hit those lower back muscles.

    I've been doing these lately. since I can't do deadlifts, I thought maybe this would work my lower back some. I've been doing 4x25 is they seam pretty good

    this is a great exercise and feels amazing to do and you really feel like youve worked out your back after doing these and with weights as well
