When you think of the word “sexy,” which body parts come to mind? Back? Shoulders? Tummy? A great way to get any of these areas in shape—and bring your sexy back—is to add resistance bands to your training. By contracting your muscles against the resistance of the band, you can literally and effectively tone and trim any area of your body!
For instance, if you want to put some sexy back into your shoulders, then a rear shoulder pull can help you do the trick. To do it, just stand with your arms outstretched in front of you at shoulder height with the ends of the band in each hand. Slowly pull and stretch the band until your arms are extended fully to your sides, again keeping them at shoulder height. Hold for two seconds and then return to the starting position.
Want to get some sexy back into your upper back instead? Then a good exercise to do you’re your resistance band is the single arm row. In this case, you want to stand with your right foot a couple feet ahead of your left and lean forward slightly by bending at the waist. Place the resistance band under your right foot, holding one end in your right hand which is straight down to your side, then use your left arm to pull the other end of the band up to about chest height, contracting the muscles in your upper back as you go. Again, hold for two seconds and then release back to the starting position.
There are many different exercises you can do with resistance bands based on the areas of your body you want to sculpt, but the point is that using this one piece of equipment can help you get faster and better results. And it can help you bring your sexy back.
