3 Steps To Blast Back Fat!

One of the most stubborn parts of the body to work out is the back, specifically the area of the back that holds those annoying pockets of fat that sit just below the bra strap.  

Many of the moves you do every day, such as swinging a tennis racket or carrying bags, are done in front of your body, working the chest instead of the back. Plus, most women don’t work their back muscles in their usual home workout.

If you are in the market for a few easy moves that can help to blast the back fat fast, check out these moves below to jumpstart the shrinkage!

1. Bridges

Bridges will not only help with evening out the hips but also with evening out the fat on your back as well. To perform the bridge, lay flat on your back with your hands at your sides and your feet flat on the floor, knees up. Lift your hips off of the ground and towards the ceiling with your shoulders planted on the floor and your palms flat on the floor. Hold the pose for 10-15 seconds and then lower your hips back down to the floor.

2. Lat Pull Downs

Lat pull downs are one of the best exercises for strengthening the muscles in the back and smoothing things out.  If you have a membership to a gym or access to a lat pull down machine,  sit with your feet flat on the floor and your knees at a 90 degree angle.  Make sure that the weight on the machine is at a weight that is light enough for you to extend through a full pull down, but heavy enough to give you a workout.  Place both of your hands at the very edge of the handle bar and pull downward past your chin. Release the bar while holding it strong to return to your starting place.  Repeat the movement for 20 reps and you will feel the burn.
