Exercises to get rid of back fat
Back fat is not fun, especially if you want to wear a backless dress like Kate Hudson, but I’m here to give you some exercises to target the goal of getting rid of back fat!
It is important for me to point out first that the bummer is that you can’t spot reduce 🙁 . On the flip side, here is what you CAN do. You CAN do targeted exercises to develop muscles in the areas you want to change and you CAN reduce over all body fat (through intensity in training and through the right nutrition) and THAT combination will drastically change the appearance!
In this video, I’ll be using rubber tubing, but you can use hand weights or a band with handles or simply, your own body.
Exercise to get rid of back fat #1: Swimmers
This one isn’t bad. Just take your hands out in front of you, push back and bring your arms back in. It’s almost like doing the breast stroke in a pool. So pretend you are pushing through deep water, really accentuating those muscles, not just going through the motions.
Exercise to get rid of back fat #2: Straight Arm Reverse Fly
Place your hands out in front of you about shoulder length apart and open your arms up wide, squeezing those deltoids together. The closer you put your hands on the band, the harder it’s going to be. The wider you place your hands, the easier the exercise will be.
Exercise to get rid of back fat #3: Bent Elbows – Reverse Fly
Open up your chest, elbows at a 90 degree angle, and push those arms back (imagine pushing something heavy behind your hands)
Exercise to get rid of back fat #4: Shoulders/Back
Hold band in your hands, pull band a part, and lift above your head, and slowly bring it down.
