The Maxed Out Muscle Workout: Back

Achieve maximum back growth with this detailed routine.

Duration 30 min
Exercises 5
Equipment Yes

Our back workout features the mighty deadlift, but you’ll see that it doesn’t come first. Deadlifts are such a draining and potentially dangerous exercise that it’s best to do them when you’re somewhat fatigued. That means you’ll have to use a lighter weight, and can then train as hard as you like without as much risk of breaking form. Be aware that while deadlifts work the back, they also work the legs and hips hard too, so take extra time to warm up these areas before deadlifting.
