Put You Back Into It


In order to develop the best back possible, you want to combine exercises that target the major muscles of the latissimus dorsi (lats) and the trapezius (traps), as well as the muscles that run along the length of the back — the erector spinae. If you fail to hit all three muscle groups, muscular imbalances can develop and this can lead to back injuries and even make it difficult to execute other exercises. Happiness Tough Spotters

Just Pull It


Vertical pulling exercises such as the lat pulldown primarily target the latissimus dorsi or ‘lats’ muscles but also hit the lower and middle trapezius, the rhomboids, and the serratus anterior. The largest of these muscles, the lats, originate at your thoracic and lumbar spine spanning most of your back and insert all the way on your humerus.Happy Days Happiness
