Most women have their trouble areas and all of them want to find a way to get rid of them. That is why they focus on exercising their problem zones in order to reduce back fat and tone their bodies. They include planks and crunches into their training routines in order to get a flat stomach and well-defined arms but they forget to train their back.

Performing back exercises is crucial to get rid of annoying bra bulge and to start wearing tight clothes. If you dream of having a strong and fit back you should work on the two prominent back muscles responsible for back function – the lats and the traps. These muscles protect your spine and maintain the functioning of your body.

In order to work on these muscles you should perform eight effective moves such as inverted rows, cable rows, pull-ups, pull-downs, seated laterals, double arm upright rows, push-ups and cobra poses. These moves work on your upper body so you should perform them twice a week in order to get rid of back fat for good. You should do this back workout at the gym as you will need to use gym equipment to perform this training routine effectively. Do not forget to do a short warm-up before this workout.

However, if your aim is slimming down you should combine these back exercises with a cardio routine to lose extra weight and tone up your body. Are you interested? Scroll down to see how to do these exercises correctly to prevent injuries.
