Explosive Exercises For A Supreme Lats Workout

The 3 Exercises For The Best Lats Workout – Your Not Using

Most Bodybuilders spend a lot of time doing pushups and other exercises to build their Chest muscles. What many do NOT know, is that it is equally important to build your upper back muscles as well for all over strength and appearance.

Strong latissimus dorsi (lats, for short) helps you avoid joint damage, back injury, and bad posture. Try performing the exercises discussed below for a complete and effective lats workout.

The first exercise in your lats workout is called The Row. Position yourself in front of a full-length mirror. Make sure your feet are about a shoulder-width apart and that your knees are slightly bent. Keeping your back straight, lean forward until your upper body is held at an angle of 45 degrees. Hold some weights parallel to your mirror. Be sure that your shoulders are directly aligned with your hands and your hands with the floor. Keep your arms and elbows relaxed. Slowly lift the dumbbells up until they almost touch your rib cages. As you make this movement, lift your shoulder blades while keeping your back straight. Inhale in starting position and exhale as you perform the lift. To make sure that you are keeping good form throughout the exercise, keep your eyes on your reflection in the full-length mirror.

Exercise 2 In our Lats Workout is again employing the benefits of Dumbbells for a great amount of movement and stabilizing advantages. Adopt the same position as before – bent over with your eyes focussing on an object in front of you. Then – rather than squeezing the weights towards you, this time you will be moving your Arms out sidewards. This is absolutely effective for building strong flared Lats and will add significant width your entire Back region. Remember to exhale on the lift and return the weights slowly towards the starting position.

Our Third Exercise in our collective Lats Workout is Dumbbell Pullovers. For this one, you need to be laying face upwards on a weight bench with the Dumbbell gripped in between both hands. You will be holding it so that it is vertical rather than horizontal. Grip the Dumbbell using both hands and then slowly lower it behind your head keeping a slight bend in your Arms at all times. When you feel a stretch, pull it up to just above head level and repeat for 10-15 reps. As well as being the ultimate Back thickening exercise this one will also work your core and your Abs respectively.

Congrats! You’ve made it. Use these exercises in conjunction with your current Lats Workout and you are certain to witness marked muscular improvements in as little as three workouts.
