Back Wreckage: 3 Of Cory Gregory's Best Back Workouts

These workouts will provide your back with more reps than it can handle. Work hard and your muscles will respond by getting that perfect combination of shape and strength!

A big, strong back can be the foundation of your athleticism while setting your physique apart from your competition. Building one, though, takes more than just a few pull-ups done here and there. Successful back building comes with volume, and it comes with hitting those muscles from each and every angle. Most important, it comes with concentrated effort and intensity.
