I have just spent 1 month working out with weights in a gym. Currently I am doing pull downs (not yet strong enough for pull ups) and seated rowing for my back. The seated rowing seems to be involving the lower back muscles a bit, but still I am considering adding back extensions. Also I am wondering if I should add 1 or 2 stabilizing exercises e.g. the plank.
My goal is to a have a strong and healthy (functional) back, not to look big.
On the other hand my preference is to do as few exercises as possible and with relative heavy weights (10-12 reps per set).
With that in mind I was wondering if it would be possible to reduce the numbers of exercises?
More spesifically I was wondering if dead lifting + 1 stabilizing exercise (which?) would be enough?
