The V-Taper Workout


Just because you can't see your back in the mirror doesn't mean you shouldn't train it. A good back will give your physique a wide and powerful look, and it will also give you the illusion of having a smaller waist.

But how do you build a strong V-shape back? Just follow these top-3 back exercises that will hit your lats, middle, and lower back.

How to do this Workout

Perform the following workout 1-2 times per week, making sure you never perform the routine on back-to-back days.

Complete the exercises as straight sets, resting as needed in between before moving on to the next.

Circuit : Do 1 set of each exercise in a group consecutively, without rests in between. Once  these exercises have been completed, repeat the circuit again - doing 1 set of each with no rests in between. Continue until prescribed number of total sets are performed

Strength : Complete all sets of an exercise at the same time with rests in between. Then move to the next exercise.

Superset : Two moves done consecutively (like a circuit) with no rests in between.
