    There are several excerices for the back

    Deadlifts being the best, as its a compound lift but others

    Bent Over Row (Upper back mainly)
    Seated Row
    Hyper-extentions

    Squats and Deadlifts work the back, Back extensions more specifically. Avoid things like hyper extensions.

    Core, Legs and other back work will also have an effect on lower back.

    Iain is a smart man

    Lower back can be trained statically (keeping an arch through a deadlift or squat) or by actually contracting it (round back goodmornings, back extensions, etc)

    The spine was not designed for repetitive and forceful hyper extension or flexion. Lots of info on it, read into Stuart McGills work and sports coaches like Eric Cressey etc...
