    Just curious - for the people who love doing back the most....why? I'd like to hear what aspect of exercising the back or the effects of it stands out to you.

    I ask because back is prob my least favourite.

    The ability to move heavy weight, and because nothing stands out like a set of huge lats and traps. Doing deads makes you feel like a man!

    I like working my upper back the most because that's the day I get to do power cleans and I love those especially since I have been practicing the proper technique.

    To be honest I'm really not bothered about my back. I work my back pretty hard, but only because it promotes muscle growth over the whole body and also I don't want to end up with an uneven bodyshape. But in itself, I really aint too fussed.
    Mostly I want big legs, arms, chest and shoulders.

    A big back is what separates a real bodybuilder (or powerlifter) from the pretenders. Also, if you want to be functionally strong as well as look good, you need a big, strong back.

    But the point is I will have a big back (some day in the distant future) because I do the excercises and put in the hard work. Its just that I'm not too bothered about it, I hardly think my muscles realize that it doesn't metter that much to me, they will grow the same either way.

    deads are by far my favorite workout. if deadlifting everyday would build your whole body up i would do it and not just completely wear you out i would do it.
