The Only Back Workout You Need for That Perfect V-Shape Torso

Wide-grip Barbell Partial Deadlift:

Since we are looking to build our back and don’t want to be limited by grip strength, think about using a pair of wrist straps, which will allow you to load the bar up heavier. This goes for any exercise where your goal is to target your back.

Equipment: Barbell


How to:

  • Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width distance.
  • Grab onto a barbell using an overhand grip, keeping your arms at a 45-degree angle from the side of your body, with no bend in the elbows.
  • Stand tall, squeezing the bar into your thighs and pulling your shoulder blades together—you should feel tension throughout the entire backside of your upper body.
  • This is your starting position.
  • Hinge at the hips, without letting the bar move away from your body, and lower the bar to just above the knee, counting to five each time.
  • Slowly return to the starting position.
  • Do six reps. Go Next Page to see more
