Building your back is a very important part of building your body. Your back muscles make up 70% of the mass that is in your upper body. This is a very important thing to understand when you are trying to build up your body and improve your physique. A lot of bodybuilders tend to focus on a certain group of muscles and avoid the rest. The unfortunate fact is that this approach will always give you an unbalanced look. You have to work every bit of your body that you can. Also, it is your back muscles that give you the powerful and wide look that you are looking for.
There is no secret in order to build back muscle. There are many exercises that can be performed to increase the size of the muscles in your back and to get the “v-shape” that many people desire. There is nothing like a well sculpted back and most serious body builders are striving to get a nicely defined back. The good part about back muscle exercises is that there are not that many exercises to perform in order to get a nicely defined back. However, the way that you perform these exercises will make a considerable difference on how much muscle you gain and how defined your back becomes. One of the best ways to increase back muscle mass is to perform pull ups. There are so many variations to pull ups and using your own body weight to perform this task is a free way and very effective way to become ripped very fast.
You know what the meaty back days entail. You walk into the weight room, and you crawl out. You spend an hour and a half clubbing the back with set after heavy set of deadlifts, rows, and other assorted painful movements. At the end of the day, your back is pumped, you don’t fit in your shirt, and you know tomorrow is going to being some soreness. This is the way you should always train, right?
The body builder’s physique constitutes of two distinct sections namely: the frame and then the core. Core muscles in a body builder comprise of the general abdominal outlay, the back section and the chest. Muscles in the three sub-sections are very vital in creating and stabilizing a body structure and must be independently but simultaneously developed. To conceptualise the core of a body, we can think of it as the fulcrum column that links the upper torso to the lower torso. Very deliberate exercises like the ones exemplified below, will help enhance the core muscles. Enhancing the core is the very key to unlock all possibilities to a body builder, especially that of achieving a champion’s physique.
