Sexy Back Exercise For Women
When it comes to a sexy figure, our back may be our most underrated asset. Women’s fitness programs often lack the attention the back deserves. Here are 3 variations of a bent over row using just a simple barbell. You can do this at home with dumbbells also: ENJOY!
Earlier I stated that our back may be our most underrated asset. This is because our back is the key to perfect posture. Men think slouching is a very unattractive feature and I have to agree. The muscles in our upper back is responsible for pulling our shoulders down and back, in order to keep us tall and straight. Another benefit is to this down and back effect is that it lifts your front side too. THINK PERKY!
Beyond appearance, a strong back will help stabilize the shoulder girdle, lessons stress on ligament and joints which prevents injury and pain.
Muscles in the Back and Their Job
Rear Deltoid – their job is to pull the upper arm backward
Trapezius – this huge muscle is often referred to in three different areas and can be worked that way also:
- upper-responsible for lifting the shoulders blades (shrugs)
- middle-pulls shoulder blades closer to the spine (rows)
- lower-pulls your shoulder blades down (rows)
Latissimus Dorsi – pulls the upper arms from a raised position down to the sides of the torso (taking a plate down from a cupboard)
Teres Major – assists your lats in pulling your upper arm down to the side.
Rhomboids – these small muscles assist the traps with pulling the shoulder blades together
Isn’t it pretty cool when you understand why certain exercises are preformed a specific way?
If there are any other exercises you would like me demonstrate or a body part you’d like me to focus on, post it below. Comments are ALWAYS welcome.
