5 most effective compound back excerise

Looking at those tough broods building up a chiselled body in the gyms can be enviable. If you too wish to build that dapper body then you got to workout consistently and follow a strict diet regime. But if you’re like most of the guys who are building their bodies mostly to look great, then you too must be aiming to build that inverted V-shape body.

The V-shaped body type features a broader back that represents a stronger look while the bottom part, from waist-down, tapers down. But a V-shaped body is not easy to achieve. You will need to focus on back exercises because building a stronger back means getting your desired physique.

But did you know that a stronger and bigger looking back isn’t just to make you look masculine? With back exercises, you can build a stronger back, which means you can strengthen your spine and neck for improved posture. A stronger back will also reinforce your body against getting hurt and will also improve your core strength for everyday functional fitness.

To help you broaden your frame, we have got some amazing back exercises curated just for you.


1.   Deadlift: Stand with your feet hip-width apart with your hips a bit bending backwards. While keeping your back flat, extend your hips to stand up and pull the bar up along your body. While pulling up, keep your eyes fixated on the ground and then slowly lower the bar back to the starting position.

2.   Weighted pull-ups: Before you begin with this exercise, attach a weighted belt to your waist and hold a dumbbell between your feet. You can even use your bodyweight alone if you can’t do it with the weighted belt. Hand from a pull-up bar with your hands outside your shoulder width. Slowly pull yourself up until your chin is over the bar.

3.   Dumbbell Romanian deadlift: Stand straight with your feet hip-width apart and hold dumbbells in each hand, placing your arms by your side. Bend your hips back and your torso forward and keep lowering yourself until you feel a stretch in your hamstrings. You may bend at the knees slightly to be comfortable while doing this set. Squeeze your glutes at the top of the movement after coming back up.

4.   Lat pulldowns: Kneel in front of the cable machine and face away. Grab the bar with your palms shoulder-width apart and lean back slightly as you push your chest out. Pull the bar down to your chest before returning to the start position. Make sure your torso remains still throughout the set.

5.   Farmer’s walk: You can hold two kettlebells or dumbbells in each hand, with your arms by your side. As you keep your arms strong, walk short and in quick steps as fast as possible. You can walk as much as you want but make sure your back remains straight throughout.

These are the best back exercises that you can do to achieve a chiselled physique. You can now dare to go shirtless at the beach because you have the figure to flaunt your ripped body.
