Importance of a Strong Back

Having a STRONG BACK…………….    I have written on this subject a few times but it is time for a reminder.   Your back is KEY for soo much of life.  

Your back is the centerpiece that attaches to your hips, abs, chest, shoulders and neck.  We use our back muscles constantly from lifting objects, to standing, to sitting, to walking, to shoveling snow and pushing a lawnmower.  

In every single compound exercise, we need a strong back.   Benching, deadlifts, squatting, shoulders, triceps, running, lunges……  The list goes on.  Even in cardio – running, skiing, biking….       The stronger your back muscles are the more powerful you will be at any other exercise.  

Having a strong back will also make your day-to-day life easier and less strenuous.

Are you paying enough attention and work-out time focused on your back?  Need a refresher on good back workouts?  Check out my earlier posts, such as:  Deadlifts, Rows, and Pull Ups/ Chin Ups just to name a few.

Stay tuned………
