NFM’s BACK WORKOUTS
Although my dumbbell back workouts differ, a common factor of each is a the ‘pulling’ motion, where the dumbbell weight is moving through a pulling motion or often rowing motion keeping elbows in with the focus of primarily using the strength of the back muscle not the bicep muscles. The variation of back exercises using dumbbells are all contracted to lift the weight upward towards you body through pulling weights, with a rigid form, to a point where you feel the pump at its peak and so you can feel it working your back. It is important to always breathe in a rhythm and consistency. When you train your body always practice correct form and good control especially with the back as it is a common place for injury and pain. Each repetition to any back workout should be done inhaling on the way down or when performing rows and exhaling when you force or pull on the way up. When performing the row workouts keep in mind that it is the action of folding the shoulder blades forward and back that targets the back muscles properly.The contraction and extension together constitute a single repetition of the back muscle.
