Q: What are your three favorite exercises for targeting the upper back?
A: I love seeing a sculpted, sexy upper back on a woman, especially when she's wearing a beautiful dress that shows it off. But unfortunately many women (and men) overlook training their upper back simply because they don’t see it when they look in the mirror. From an aesthetic point of view, strengthening the muscles in your upper back and shoulders will have a tremendous impact on your posture, which is a commonly undervalued component of improving the way you look. In fact, great posture can even make you look leaner without losing any body fat at all.
While dropping body fat and gaining lean muscle are both extremely important for getting the body you want, I’ve seen plenty of lean people who have terrible posture that diminishes their overall appearance. Read on for my three favorite exercises to target this area.
