    Back is not a big thing I do. I do back on machines usually. Seated Row. Reverse flys on an incline bench, Overhead Pull-downs and lowever back on a machine (no idea what its called).

    Anyways I haven't done any back routines since school ended since everything I did was on machines.

    Things i have pairs of free weights from 5lbs to 55lbs. An 2 Olympic benches and bars.

    I have a bench than can incline up but its not Olympic and kinda small.

    Any routines you could suggest with free weights would be appreciated. I want to start doing some back routines again.

    The best things are deadlifts. Easy, simple, effective. They're not hand weights, but they're very good on the back, and also work your legs and triceps some too.

    Talking about deadlifts- try straightleg deadlifts. It works the lower back HARD.

    Hell ya to that!

    The straight leg works a lot more on the lower back and hamstrings.

    You can do the dumbbell row standing up-right to better target your back.
