Hi, my name is Eric N. Quinn. I am a personal trainer and life coach and we are here in The World Boxing Gym in Jersey City, New Jersey. Today, we are going to talk about lower back weight exercises for men. The first exercise that we're going to perform today is going to be standing row. Why standing row? Standing row because I think it's one of the most effective exercises that you can perform for your lower back. I know that a lot of people know this exercise will work the upper back and it does work your upper back and the rear deltoids also but it's very effective because your lower back is very engaged in the exercise. So what we are going to do, you're going to bend over and this is bending the weight down, your arms are hanging here, don't forget to breathe, engage your lower back, unless you bring the weight up, you're going to bring it up to your waist and down, up to your waist and down, feel the back working as you perform the exercise. Please do not rush in this exercise because you can injure yourself while doing it. So take your time, squeeze back, down, squeeze back and down. The next exercise we're going to perform is going to be deadlift, just like when performing squats, deadlift is very important for your lower back also. It engages your lower back very much when you're going down and up. So this is what we're going to do. We're going to stand behind the bar, shoulder width, we're going to squat down, we're going to grab the bar outside the legs, not inside, but outside the legs. As you come up, please pay attention. You need to put the weight on your heels, not forward, you don't lift the bar like this, you lift the bar from your heels and up. Remember to squeeze your pelvis as you come up. You go down the same way, putting all the weight on your heels. Up, you squeeze, form is very important in this exercise otherwise you can actually hurt your back. You go down, up remember, shoulder width, breathing is very important, up, nice, squeeze, you go down, up, squeeze and down. This has been Eric N. Quinn, and those were the lower back weight exercises for men.
