    You mostly want to use your upper back muscles, however, if you're looking at which muscles to excercise you're going to want to exercise all of your upper body muscles. You don't want to just exercise your back muscles because you're going to want balance between your chest and back muscles. There are a couple devices that are made just for archery that simulate drawing a bow that will help with building muscle. Maybe somebody could help me with what they are called. I know you can purchase them at Cabela's or Bass Pro.
