How to get ripped back muscles
| FLOW Athlete
The benefits of working out your back are numerous. You’ll feel better, look better, and be more confident in yourself. Not only will you have more energy but you'll also be able to do things that were once difficult for you, such as picking up heavy objects. When your upper body is stronger, everything feels lighter and more manageable. You won’t be as tired when doing household chores or carrying groceries up the stairs either.
With a stronger core, you are also less likely to injure yourself while exercising or playing sports, so what are you waiting for? Get started today by following our tips below.
Exercises you can do in the gym
The best way to tone your back is by using a workout routine that focuses on the entire muscle group. This will help you achieve toned, defined muscles and avoid injury. Here are some tips for getting ripped back muscles.
You can start with exercises like deadlifts, chin-ups and bent-over rows. These moves work all of your primary back muscles at once, so they’re perfect if you’re short on time or are just starting in the gym. They also require minimal equipment, which means there are no excuses to hit the weights.
If these moves seem too difficult, try doing them one arm at a time until you feel comfortable enough to do both arms together. Once that becomes easy, try adding weight with dumbbells or kettlebells while keeping good form throughout each exercise.
Looking for a way to tone your back without equipment?
We know how hard it is to find an exercise program that works for you and fits into your lifestyle, which is why our workout tips are designed with real people in mind. Here are some simple ways to tone your back at home, at work or anywhere else.
The back toner: Sit on a sturdy chair with your feet flat on the floor and shoulder-width apart. Keep your knees bent at 90 degrees as you lean forward from the hips until your upper body is parallel to the floor. Hold that position for 30 seconds while breathing deeply. Repeat three times every day until results appear.
The Superman: Lie flat on the floor with your arms outstretched into a Superman pose. Then, as you inhale, squeeze in your butt and elevate your arms, chest and legs, so your core is pressed to the ground. Exhale and release.
Wide grip pushups: If you want to tone your arms, chest, shoulders and back, try the wide grip pushup. This is a great exercise that targets multiple muscle groups at once. The wide grip pushup is also an excellent way to work on your core stability muscles and improve shoulder strength and flexibility. This move will help you achieve a strong upper body while increasing your overall fitness levels.
