Try These 6 Moves for a Strong Back

Try These 6 Moves for a Strong Back

In this video I show you six of my current favorite lower and mid back strengthening exercises that also force you to work your core and arms making for a terrific workout. If you are working on weight loss you can circuit these moves in sets of ~15 or more reps with 60s rest between sets. If you are working on basic strength you can increase the weight and try 3 strict sets of 12 reps with 60s-90s rest in between. Or if you're looking to hypertrophy (build muscle) up the weight even more and try 4 sets of 8-12 reps and give yourself 90s-120s rest in between sets.

Not cute. But you can make some simple yet impactful lifestyle changes that will have you looking and feeling healthy and confident.
