Even though bodybuilders tend to develop each and everymuscle on the body, there are still some that avoid back exercises. When thearms and torso are bulked up, with the ideally formed abs, and deltoid musclesso big that nothing else can be seen beside them, back tend to be left out fromthe extensive bodybuilding process, which is a mistake Back muscles are veryimportant, because most of those are engaged in all body movements and thestanding position. Those muscles carry entire organism and all other muscles, sothey should not be forgotten.

Ball back exercises

This type is not something that a bodybuilder would normally do and it does not involve extra weight lifting, but since it is done with the help ofthe ball, it is an interesting form. This is because a lot of balancing andcoordination is needed in order to stay on the ball, and also, muscles are underconstant tension. This exercise is excellent for warming up and is also greatfor extension and stretching.

No extra weight

There are two more exercises that do not use additionalweight but are great for the back muscles. One is called chin-ups, where allyou need is chin up bar and your muscles. The point with this exercise is thatyou can do it in several different ways and that depends on the distance betweenhands when the chin up bar is grabbed. Also, when starting the exercise, bodyhas to be relaxed, legs bent in knees, so that the entire weight of the body israised. If possible in up position, it would be good to stay like that for asecond or two and then go down.

Hyperextensions are also very interesting and you can evenuse a table, not some gym station. This is why this exercise can be performedat home too, if there is enough space. Legs should not be moving and theyprovide leverage, while torso is free to lean and go up. Also, it would be forthe best if a few seconds pause is made when torso is at the top level.

Weight exercises

These types of exercises include several forms, such as pullthrough, flat down pullers, and so-called row exercises (T bar, Arm dumbbell, and bent barbell, etc.) Weight or no weight, back muscles are not that easily bulkedup and they do take some time and patience in order to grow the way we would likethe best.
