Most commonly a problem amongst women, back fat is one of the most frustrating things a woman can face, especially when trying to wear a strappy top or figure hugging dress. There is no need to despair though, as there is a way to combat this area successfully, if you’re truly committed to putting the work into eventually seeing the fat melt away.
Fiona Cowgill, one of our personal trainers at Pendle Wavelengths has put together three exercises that will help to target this stubborn area:
Single arm row:
Fiona recommends doing two lots of ten of the single arm row.
Assisted Pull Up:
Single Dead Row:
1.Grab a barbell just wider than hip width
2. Hinge forward at the hips but keep your back flat, pull the bar in towards the belly button relax the arms and return to starting position
3. Exhale as you pull the bar inward; inhale as you lower the bar towards the floor
4. Take 2-3 seconds to raise the bar, 3-4 seconds to lower the bar
Fiona recommends doing three lots of 10 for both of these exercises.
