Have you always dreamed of wearing a sexy backless gown like the stars on the red carpet, but never get to it because you are too embarrassed by the flab on your back? If so, then don't miss out on these amazing exercises to get a beautifully toned back.
Pull ups help tone and sculpt the various muscles that your back is made up of. An ideal pull up is one that you do by lifting your body up whilst gripping a bar with your palms.
To do a dumbbell row you will have to place one of your knees on a bench or on a low table, and hold a light weight in the hand opposite to the leg while slightly bending forward, just make sure that you keep your back straight. In a rowing motion, contract your upper back and elbows skimming the side of your body as you do the move.

This move works best for your chest but can do wonders for your back too. Get into a regular push-up position palms flat on the ground shoulder-width apart. Concentrating the weight on your arms, lower yourself slowly and hold the position for 3 seconds and push up again contracting your chest.
Jumping rope or skipping rope is another exercise that is very good for sculpting your back, even though you might think that it only sculpts your shoulders. Since the shoulders are connected to your back, they do tone the muscles there, and what's more skipping is also a great cardio workout that tones and burns fat overall.
Tight back muscles will make you slouch more which results into your back looking un-sculpted. To keep your back muscles flexible you need to stretch on a daily basis, even if it is only for a little while. To stretch the back muscles, place your arm on a door frame in a 90 degree angle. Now turn and twist your body toward the other arm and stretch for about a minute and then switch sides. Do this for about 10 minutes.
All your exercises and stretching will go in vain if your posture isn't proper. Also, bad posture also makes your back weak overall which is something that you don't want. So sit up straight while working in front of your computer and consciously remember to stand straight and also walk with your back erect. Just make sure you aren't extremely stiff.
Go ahead and get the beautiful toned back you have always wanted, and impress others and most importantly impress yourself.
