Not sure if anyone reads these but when you say “weak back” what specific part of the back are you referring to? The two little lines above the butt when doing good mornings, lower back (deadlifts), the mid back (seated rows), lats (pull downs), upper back trap (low bar) area? I’d like to get more details because there are so many exercises to bring up each weak area. Which section of the back helps the most with the overall lift? Thank you!
