When it comes to building muscle, it’s important to have a balanced diet and workout routine.
There are so many techniques to complete for back day, including kettlebell swings and a barbell deadlift.
Now an Australian personal trainer has shared two techniques that could help you build back muscle fast.
And just in case you’re wondering, neither of these exercises involve a pull-up.
Speaking to Men’s Health US, Eugene Teo demonstrated his simple moves.
So if you’re all geared up for this workout, just scroll down to see what you’ve got to do.

Exercise 1: Lat pull-down
The personal trainer has a different technique to what you might do traditionally.
He claims the traditional lat pull-down doesn’t provide much stability so it’s important to be in the right position to target the back.
Eugene said: “The only thing holding you in position in a typical lat pulldown is your legs being anchored into position.
“It’s sufficient, but with your torso suspended in mid-air, you have to expend effort and energy to keep yourself in a good position.”
Eugene says the alignment isn’t ideal so you can overcome these issues.
He suggests using an incline bench anchored up behind a lat pulldown machine.
The trainer added: “It provides you with something to brace your body up against.
“Make sure you’re driving the elbows down in front of your torso towards your thighs, and to avoid arching through your back.”
Exercise 2: T-Bar row
Eugene enjoys this technique because it allows you to get into full degrees of motion rounding in the upper back.
He explained: “It is so important for stretching and stimulating the muscles of the upper back like the rhomboids and the traps.”
And with this technique, you’ll be able to raise the weight up to make the movement easier.
The personal trainer says he’s able to push further through the end of each rep this way.
