Question:

please tell me some basic back exercises(for women) to round off the chest workout

Answer:

If I understand your question correctly, it sounds as if you are already doing a chest workout and need some exercises to balance out the posterior aspect of your body. If this is correct, a few muscle groups that you will want to address are your latissimus dorsi, rhomboids, and your rotator cuff group in the shoulder.

Some simple exercises that you could do to address these muscle groups are as follows:

You could look up similar exercises online or in strength and conditioning book. You may want to seek out the serivces of a strength and  conditioning professional if you need further direction. Hopefully these exercises will address some of the areas that you wish to address. Best wishes!
