I’VE GOT YOUR BACK, SO SHOULD YOU!
Any well rounded program includes exercising the muscles of your back, the latissimus dorsi, aka “lats”. We often spend much of our time working certain areas (abs, arms, thighs) that are very visible to us; for women particularly, the tush. However, let us not forget to give equal time to the muscles responsible for all that support from your waist almost to your neck, assisting with rotation and flexion of shoulders, torso, arms, and support of your spine. I’ll show some exercises for back in another post (you don’t need a gym or fancy equipment); for now I just wanted to remind you all to not neglect this large important area of your body in strength training.
You know what? It not only feels good to have strong back muscles, but it looks good too. Having nice firm back muscles (they reach around toward the front under your arms ya know) make your under garments and clothes fit and look better. The more developed those back muscles are, the smaller your waist looks, too. What’s not to like about that?
