    I used to have chronic back problems when i was mid 20s.

    I now have been using Kettlebells for about a year and my back has not given me one problem since. i guess therefore that Kettlebells are pretty good for back muscles - I am not an expert though, that is just my experience

    Lower back - Deadlift.
    Upper back - Pull ups, rows, lat pulldown.

    Pull Ups are pretty solid.

    Throw in some glute/ham raises for good measure.

    If you're talking about protecting the spine, crunches are the last thing you want to do. Anything that forces you to stabilize the midsection works best: planks, squats, deadlifts, kettlebell swings, bridges are good too...pushing and pulling exercises done while standing...there are quite a few others, but that's all I've got before my first cup of coffee

    I used to have issues with lower back pain, weakness. Once I started deadlifting and using hyper extensions as a support exercise, my lower back issues are completely gone.

    I really like hanging leg raises. The way the whole core has to tighten is awesome.
