Sup /ana/

So I'm in average shape, most of my exercise is just doing long runs to blow off steam and help my mental health, pushups from time to time. I noticed my back is lacking in muscle, upper and lower.

Do you guys have any suggestions for getting a normal healthy back without a complicated routine? I do have a gym membership. I'm looking at exercises on youtube and google but theres so many..it's a little overwhelming. I'd feel a little more confident in giving them a shot if somebody here is willing to just recommend a few good starter exercises for a well rounded back.

I did starting strength about a year ago and that was going well. Should I just jump back into doing that?

In my opinion rows should be a staple for any back workout. I would also recommend working in pull-ups into your routine for your lats as they can really help your back look fuller

It honestly doesn't take much if you're not looking to get huge. A few sets each of push-ups and pull-ups 2-3 times a week should be enough to fill out a little over time.

Pull up
Pendlay row & 45° bent over row
Overhead press (for upper back)

Don't forget your lats and your shoulders are also part of your back and will contribute to making it look bigger. Especially your upper back shoulder area is prone to getting bumpy.

Thanks guys. Gonna hit the gym today and do Deadlifts, pendlay rows, and maybe squats and overhead press.

I honestly don't know if I could do a pull-up right now.

sounds like starting strength alright. jk

i reread the thread and i find the phrasing )well rounded back( hilarious
how long did you do the SS routine for and how far did you get? thanks to muscle memory it can be very easy to get back to a good portion of previous functional strength
best of luck to you and keep at it!
