Sexy Toned Back Exercises

When it comes to sex appeal, a nicely toned back may be your most underrated asset. That’s because it not only allows you to look your best in the most revealing of dresses—the backless ones, naturally—but it’s also a key to perfect posture. You see, the muscles of your upper back help pull your shoulders down and back, so that you stand tall and straight, instead of hunched over. The added benefit, of course, is that this lifts your front up, too. (Think perky, not saggy.)
So how do you work these muscles and blast back fat? The classic advice is to do variations of dumbbell, barbell and cable rows, all of which are terrific for working your upper back muscles. However, you need weights or a machine to do these exercises. The good news: The Women’s Health Big Book of Exercises offers a way to work your upper back without any equipment at all. It’s a trio of exercises known as Floor Y-T-I Raises that require only your body and can be done in your living room in front of the TV. Ready to try them? Just follow the instructions below.
Floor Y-T-I Raises Together, these three exercises target the muscles of your upper back and shoulders.
Use This Move In Your Workout Do 12 repetitions each of Y-T-I while lying facedown on the floor, without resting between movements. So you’ll do 12 reps of the Floor Y raise, followed immediately by 12 reps of the Floor T raise, followed immediately by 12 reps of the Floor I raise. Rest two minutes and repeat one time.
