When everything is going well in your workout – arms toned, no bingo wings, fantastically firm bum and shapely legs – it can be so frustrating when, looking back into the mirror, you notice that irritating bit of back fat peaking out from behind your bra straps and ruining that lovely sleek physique.
When we lift lots of bags, work our shoulders and chest whilst cleaning and do many other daily exercises that, essentially, should take care of that area naturally, it can be really puzzling when it doesn’t happen. But don’t be put off, like how we perform special exercises for that stubborn area on the lower abs, there are some brilliant exercise you can do to improve muscle tone and definition, reduce fat and create a beautifully sculpted back.
'The great thing about these exercises is that, in addition to the aesthetic and muscular changes you'll see, these exercises have many other health benefits too. For example they'll create more support for your spine and, by doing so, will improve posture and protect against back pain.'
Pre-note: Perform these exercises as a circuit, with 3 sets and 12 reps of each exercise. For best results, try to perform the workout 3 times a week.
1. Power Pull Up
If you can't do this, use a resistance band to assist the lift until your strength improves.
2. Plyometric Push Up Rows
Too easy? Try The Advanced Superman
4. Lat Pull Down
