Why Are Back Exercises Important?

Nicely shaped back muscles not only boost your self-confidence but also provide other benefits. Therefore, do back exercises regularly to maintain a good shape and a fit body.


Sitting all day slumped over the computer leads to tight chest muscles and overstretched back muscles. Consequently, one can develop poor posture even when standing. By strengthening the back, you can correct this imbalance, stand up straighter and even look leaner and taller.


When the back muscles are unconditioned and weak, this may lead to injury and lower back pain, because there often isn’t enough spine stability for functional movements and heavy lifts. According to the National Academy of Sports Medicine, about 80% of American adults experience chronic lower back pain due to trunk muscle weakness.


Many women have more size in their lower body, and building their upper body will help their body look balanced. And, building the lats will help create some width across the upper back, which can create the illusion of a smaller waist.
