A Better Back Workout

Raphael’s New Workout

Our Advice: 

It looks like by “back” you mean training the entire back side of your body. That’s fine, but you should choose exercises to hit the widest range of muscle fibers. Start off with a standard deadlift, as that will increase your strength more quickly, boost testosterone levels, and eliminate the need for the RDL. If doing full-range deadlifts is too hard on your back, try pulling off mats or a rack. Also, switch the dumbbell row to a pullup for more variety.
