2 Pulling Exercises for the Back

Please Share

Maintaining the back muscles strong is important for preventing chronic neck and shoulder pain and for good posture. People who sit a lot need work in this field. In your workouts, make certain to do at least as or more, as you do pushing, pulling.

Grab your exercise tubing and insert the anchor. Stand facing the anchor so you are braced with one foot before the other and divide your feet. Begin with both arms straight palms facing each other.

Squeeze your shoulder blades together and pull your elbows back, keeping your forearms parallel to the ground.

The end position is the shoulder blades. Hold the squeeze for a second and then reverse the movement back to the beginning position.

Start. Step forward with the opposite leg and lean forward with a straight back (no rounding), resting the nondumbbell hand in your forwards thigh.

Perform the rowing motion on the side like you pull your arm back and do the standing row — pull back your shoulder blade toward your spine, keeping your forearm perpendicular. Try not to twist your body as you pull. For more details about lower left back pain symptoms, check out http://www.bestinversiontable.info.

Hold the position for one second and return to the starting place.

If you find it too tricky to keep your spine right when doing the leaningover variant, consider placing your knee and hands (the nonworking side) on a bench, chair, or exercise ball instead.
