Training your lower back isn’t something most people look forward to doing at the gym, but it is extremely important for injury prevention and building your physique. Lower back strength also contributes a lot to your squat and deadlift strength. This list of lower back exercises will give you some great variety regardless if you need lower back exercises with no equipment, or the best lower back exercises with dumbbells or barbells.
Take each of these lower back exercises for a test drive and find the ones that best match your fitness level, what equipment you have access too, and most importantly the one you feel the best mind- muscle connection with.
I recommend you add a few of your favorites into your full back workout routines. Make sure to check out our epic workouts section next for some complete back workouts.
