hey Will,


I just hate working back. I have always hated working back. I find I get very bored when working my back.


I usually chnage it up every three weeks (as I do with other muscle groups as well) but these are the ones that I do:

Seated rows
Wide Grip Pulldown
One Arm Dumbell Rows
Dumbell pullovers


As you can see, I prefer using free weights, since, in my opinion, you recruit more muscle fiber with free weights if your form is perfect.

But I still hate working my back. It is my least favourite part of the bdoy to work out and I DREAD back days, even more than I dread leg days.

My favourite part of the nody to work out is definitely arms and shoulders.

bent over rows and deadlifts. thats the way to go. especially on the deadlifts. best exercise for your back, and you would be suprised just how much of your back will be sore after doing them.

Hi Jonathan,

Deadlifts I do for my legs, not really for my back, although I suppose I could come up using my back muscles instead of my legs.

As far as bent over rows, I think we are talking about the same thing - I called it dumbell rows though.

It is funny how, in my experience anyway, men love working out their backs more than women.

:D

I'm just the opposite.

My back is my most favorite part to work and arms/shoulders are my least favorite parts to work.

hahah that is interesting. Go figure. Okay so I guess my theory that hating to work out your back is a gender thing is out the window. :D

Hm.

I really love back exercises. I used to love the back day.
But i also love all other days... :roll:

The only exercise i don't like very much is pull ups, 'cos they're quite frustrating.

I can't understand how you can NOT love the back day! Back is a big muscle group, allowing you to use HUGE weights! 8)

I think you have to work on your attitude ;)

:roll:

I don't like working back, it bores the crap outta me, i dunno why. I don't find it satisfying. But chin-ups i find to be okay.

interesting that you do deads for legs, as its primarily a back and hips movement. but that said, when you do it with correct form (as i am just about getting my head around) it is a full body exercise.
do a little research into different styles of deadlifting if you like. find one that suits you, and give it a bash, making it your main back exercise for 6-8weeks. i guarantee you will enjoy your workouts more and make good progress. plus you may have the added advantage of probably being able to pick up heavier boxes than some of the guys you work with! :wink:

Daylwaker: Hmm.. I am in need of an attitude adjustment because I hate working out my back?

Wow!! :shock: I'll be sure then to get right on that. :P

Jon: I disagree that deadlifts are primarily a back exercise. It depends. They could be for back, but they are also a major exercise for your hamstrings, if you focus on coming up with your legs. Try it and you will see how sore your hamstrings can get after doing dumbell deadlifts for your hamstrings. Dont use your back or your hips for coming up - recruit your hamstring muscles and focus on them 100%.

peace :D
