Tone your shoulders, back, and core with these effective at-home back exercises that will help build strength. Try this routine of exercises for back fat to target those tough-to-tone muscles.
Most people head into a workout focusing on the areas we consider the most noticeable—butt, stomach, legs, etc. But here’s a secret: Strong upper-body muscles (and back muscles, specifically) are not only key for an overall defined look, but they’re your best defense against pain, injury, and poor posture for years to come.
Try these eight back exercises at home or at the gym to sculpt a strong, sexy back, and shoulders all at once.
How it works: Three or four days a week, do 1 set of each of these exercises for back fat, with little or no rest in between moves. After the last exercise, rest 1 to 2 minutes and repeat the full circuit 2 more times (3 times total).
