As we know summer time means we shred more clothing and show of those awesome body parts. Legs, arms, and stomachs. But with all of the tank tops and swimsuits that we wear, one key body part sometimes goes untouched at the gym and can make a huge difference in our definition.
That my friends, is the BACK. In our quest to tone our arms and get lean legs, sometimes we forget that a nicely toned back does wonders for our summer shirts and dresses.
This Wednesday's Workout: Seated Narrow Grip Cable Rows
|Keep legs slightly bent and squeeze at the top.|
There are many variations of this exercise. You can do it on a cable row machine, one the floor, or even with free weights. The placing of your feet and the height of the cables can all work different areas of the back. I love back days and this workout is always incorporated in my routine.
|Be sure to watch your posture; straight back and chest out|
You can also check out videos to ensure proper technique and execution. While the back is your support system, muscles can also easily become sprained or injured if you do not perform the exercise correctly. Have a workout body assist you in ensuring proper posture and placement of hands, feet, etc.
You can also view a great video here at Bodybuilding.com!
Try this workout this week and I promise you will feel the results the next day, if not the same day. The soreness will also help you know which areas of your back you are working.
Remember: Sore Today. Fierce Tomorrow.
Until Next Time...
