Time for some more fitness tips. Try these two exercises to tone your back and keep you looking shapely when your shirt is off. For maximum impact with these moves, concentrate on squeezing your shoulder blades together with each movement and keep your shoulders relaxed at all times to avoid feeling anything in the neck. 2 sets of each, 3 x this week will get the back muscles really working.
Rows with the Band
Find a post or piece of kit to wrap the band around at chest height
Take a step back and stand with your feet shoulder width apart, knees bent and shoulders relaxed
With your arms extended there should be a little bit of tension in the band
Squeeze your shoulders back and bend your arms to bring the band in towards you
Hold at the back of the movement for 2 seconds before straightening your arms
Keep the tension between your shoulder blades even when your arms are straight
Repeat x 15 reps
Ready for the next one?
Take a step closer to the post and straighten your arms out to the sides
Keeping your arms slightly bent, use your back muscles only to pull the band from just in front of your body to just behind it
Keep your eyes front and your body upright at all times
Repeat x 15
