When it comes to our back most people think it is all about pull ups, deadlifts and rows. While these exercises are going to give you the most mass, you aren’t hitting the secondary smaller stabilizing muscles. You may think that these muscles are too important, but as their name states they help the body stay stable, and developing these muscles will allow you to lift more weight over time. Not only are you not targeting the secondary muscles in these exercises, but doing the same thing over and over again allows your body to adapt to it over time. This means your body is going to use less energy to do the same exercise or work, which is going to mean less calories burned and less growth over time. You want to do alternative exercises that are going to confuse your body by introducing new movements which will hit different muscle fibers which stimulates more growth of the tissue overall. This means that you will see faster growth over a shorter period of time, and make up those gains you’ve been missing by doing the same routine day in and day out.
