Ever find yourself hunched over at the desk, in a chair, in the car? I mean the list goes on forever and we are all guilty of it. By neglecting to work out your back muscles you are training to become the hunchback.
Increasing back strength will improve your posture and help shape your body to give the appearance of a smaller waist. It will allow you to pick up heavier items and decrease your likelihood of sprain, or “throwing out your back”.
For me, the back is one of the most challenging parts of my body to hit because it’s hard for me to feel the burn. One thing I’ve learned with the back is the importance of squeezing. I always feel the difference when I drop to lower weights and move through the reps at a slower tempo.
