does rock climbing build your back?
Yes, rock climbing can effectively build and strengthen your back muscles. The pulling movements involved in climbing engage and challenge the muscles in your upper back, including the latissimus dorsi (lats), rhomboids, and trapezius. Regular climbing sessions that incorporate a variety of routes and techniques can contribute to improved back muscle development. However, the extent of muscle building will depend on factors such as the intensity and frequency of climbing, individual genetics, and overall training regimen.
