How to Strengthen Your Back with Dumbbells

Statistically speaking, over 80 percent of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. Many people live with constant, often debilitating back issues. A big part of the problem lies in muscle weaknesses and imbalances; therefore, one powerful solution to both treat, as well as prevent, back problems is by strength training your back:

As is often the case, just a few minutes of targeted exercise several times a week can make a world of difference when it comes to strengthening the back and avoiding discomfort.

The two exercises shown in the video that can help “bulletproof your back” are:

  1. Bent-Over Dumbbell Rows
  2. Dumbbell Deadlifts

The first exercise targets the upper and middle back while the second focuses on the lower region.

When performing these exercises use a moderate weight and be sure to perform each repetition with perfect form. Do about 10-15 reps with a weight that is challenging, but allows you to maintain complete control, and do 2-3 sets of both exercises.
