important. They're all necessary for certain functions and motions. The topmost
muscles allow you to move your neck, and they work in concert with your shoulder
muscles to help you lift. Mid-back muscles like the erector spinae allow you to
bend over and stand back up.
Lower-back muscles, like the
together with the oblique abdominal muscles, helping to support your spine and
giving you greater range of movement. If anyone of these muscle areas is weaker
than the others, it can lead to serious back pain and leave you open to a muscle
pull or worse.

feel, You'll stand straighter, you'll breathe better and you'll have more
power with less pain." The following section is filled with several exercises. You will
find two general species of these exercises though: The pulling kind such as pull-ups
and the rowing kind such as bent over barbell rows. Either way the
back is a complex muscle, but we know how to get the most out of your gym time!
