One of the body parts which a lot of people have trouble with, yet doesn’t seem to get a lot of media attention, is the back. Many men and women have issues with how their back looks. Many feel that they have too much fat on their lower or upper back. The question is how you can get rid of this fat. What do you need to do in order to make it look nice?
1. Do back exercises – Due to the fact that you can’t decide where your body burns fat from, there aren’t any specific exercises to get rid of back fat. However, what you can do is perform a variety of exercises that will help you tone and firm your back muscles.
These exercises include pull ups, chin ups, back rows, seated rows, supermans, etc. All these are great exercises to tone parts of your back. So, make sure to include them in your workouts.
2. Train your entire body with circuits – To burn back fat you need to burn fat in general. Some of the fat you will burn will melt from your back as well as your other body parts. To do that you should engage in circuits. A circuit is when you do a number of exercises one after the other in quick succession. When you do that you burn more calories than you would have done had you rested after each set.
Do a lot of circuit training and you will see the melt fat off and your entire body get into awesome shape.
3. Do a lot of interval training – Cardio can be done in many ways. Some are less effective than others. To burn body fat and tone your back, you should do interval training. These are the sort of workouts that burn more body fat faster.
Interval training is done when you change the intensity of your cardio workouts throughout your training session. For instance, you can sprint for 20 second and then run at a slow pace for another 3 minutes, run faster for 1 minute, and go back to slower running the next. Intervals allow you to push your body harder and to burn more calories. Choosing a specific cardio workout which also works the back such as rowing or running will help you tone your back faster.
Realize that these tips take time to work. They are effective but change is gradual. Just stick to them and you will see results.
