Back Exercises & Back Workouts

Back Exercises. Spinal muscles are responsible for movement of the spinal column, legs, arms and the head. They may be divided into three groups: lower, upper and deep ones.

Back Exercises

Lats workout and Middle Back. Lower back muscles (lumbar muscles) interact during bending and unbending of the lumbar spine, as well as during backward and forward movements of the hips. This muscle group participates in the formation of a correct posture, and includes virtually all movements of both lower and upper part of the body.

Traps. Upper back muscles (lats, round muscles and traps) move down, lift and turn shoulder bones, as well as turn and draw humeri aside and back. General exercises for these muscles are chin-ups and seated rows. Upper muscles are basically responsible for pulling movements.

Lower Back. Deep perivertebral muscles (vertebrosacral muscles) form the so called pectoral muscle sling, which function is to support the normal position and curvature of the spine, the position and movement of separate spinal bones relative to each other, and maintaining stability.

There is no movement in our life which doesn’t involve back muscles, hence the importance of their strengthening and development, as well as appreciation of their involvement in physical activity of the body.
