Workout Routines for Shoulders

By: Jesse Miller

One of the things that you should know is the fact that the reverse part of your body must be constantly toned for you to have a good posture. The flip side part of your body is so important for there are many important muscles that are located on the reverse part of the body. Among these muscles are the trapezius muscles, the latissimus dorsi muscles, and the erector spinae muscles, which are located on the upper, middle and the lower part of the reverse part of our body. Other than these large muscles, there are numerous smaller muscles that are located on the rear part of your body.

These muscles are so important for they give shape to the body. The latissimus dorsi or the lats for instance which is located on the mid section of your rear part is a muscle group that makes up the V shape of your upper body part. The rector spinae on the other hand, which is located on the lower rear part of your body, protects your spinal column. These muscles are important as they do not only give shape and support to your body but they also protect the other delicate parts of your body.

Here are three workout routines that you can perform for the rear part of your body.

The Deadlift - Among the workout for the rear part of your body is the deadlift, which is also considered as one of the best power exercises that you can perform. The deadlift is a workout routine that works on your spinal erector, on your lats, on your trapezius, on your abdomen and many other parts of your body. To perform a deadlift, you need a barbell and lay it flat on the floor, and then you need to position yourself in front of the barbell. To position your body correctly, you need to put your shins near the bar and your feet and shoulder in width apart. Then, you gently grab the bar a shoulder width again on both hands while you keep your arms in straight position and your legs bent. The position is like you are in squat position while you have barbells on your both arms in front.

The Hyperextensions - This workout routine is excellent for your rear muscles like the spinal erectors, the hamstrings, and the buttocks. In this routine, you need a hyperextension station and you need to stand in the middle in a manner that you face toward the large part of the flat pad. Then, you lean forward so that your upper thighs would be touching the pad and your legs placed straight under the smaller part of the pad. Then, you start to lower down your upper body part perpendicularly and then lift your body again and repeat the process.

The Bent Barbell Rows - Like the deadlift, this rear body workout routine works on the three major rear muscle groups. To perform the exercise, you need to bend at waist level and then take a barbell on each side of your hand, which must be positioned at shoulder apart. Then, you need to bend slightly your knees and then lift the bar with your arms in straight position but you need to make sure that you keep your upper body part at 45-degree angle from the floor.
