Looking at yourself in the mirror, your arms and legs are well-toned, your abs are looking good, but once you turn your back from the mirror, you see those hideous bulges on your back that makes you cringe. Wish they can go away? Worry no more! Here are 5 exercises you can do at the comfort of your home to help you do away with back fat without needing to get a pricey gym membership or buying expensive and bulky gym equipment.
1) The Push-up
Push-ups are not solely for toning the arms and pecs. They are ideal for toning your upper back as well. The key to it is to make sure you have good form, keeping your head in a straight line up to your heels. This will ensure you get the best out of your push-ups.
2) The Rowboat
Can’t lift your body weight off the floor just yet? Then rowing is perfect for you! Rowing is very similar to push-ups but is easier since you do it sitting down. Likewise for push-ups, it is important to maintain a proper posture. Do not lean back while rowing as this will strain your back muscles. If a rowboat and a body of water is out of your reach, then you can get a resistance band and place one end against an immovable peg. With the opposite end of the band, pull on it like you would a couple of rows and start rowing!
