With so much focus on toning and primping the front of our bodies, it’s often easy to neglect what’s behind us (well, other than your actual behind of course). Which is why we, as women, often forget our backs when focusing our workout efforts. And whether or not you’ve got a ton of extra padding around this area to begin with, the cardinal mistakes of wearing the wrong bra size or trying to squeeze into that one-size-too-small dress can really accentuate any unflattering bulges and rolls.


As always, the most realistic way to reach your health and weight loss goals is to combine healthy eating with regular exercise. But by focusing your strength training on this trouble spot and arming yourself with smart styling tips, you’ll be able to say good-bye to rolls and hello to a smooth, sexy back.
