Resistance Band Back Exercises
When it comes to creating a complete back workout, you’ll want to include a few different types of back exercises. This ensures you target the muscles of the lats, rhomboids, and spinal erectors.
To make planning your workout easier, I’ll present the exercises according to the primary muscle groups they target.
Row & Pulldown Alternative Resistance Band Back Exercises
The most common exercises for targeting the lats are rows and pulldowns. In this section, I’ll show you how to replicate various row and pulldown exercises using resistance bands.
1-2. Double or Single Resistance Band Bent Over Row
Resistance band bent over rows can be performed using both arms at the same time or with one arm at a time. I’ll explain how to do both variations.
To do a two-handed resistance band bent over row, start by standing on the middle of the band with your feet about shoulder-width apart. Grab one end of the band in each hand and bend forward at about a 45-degree angle.
Then pull up and back towards your waist, squeezing your shoulder blades at the top of the movement. This exercise most resembles a bent over barbell row.
