Quick Bites

  • No matter how hard we work, some parts of our bodies are hard to target.
  • The extra layer of fat that bulges out around the outline of your bra is annoying.
  • A high intensity workout of bra bulge exercises helps build the back muscles.
  • The following exercises help you do just that.

A lot of people only concentrate on what their mirrors show them and remain ignorant to the flipside – until they catch a glimpse of their back in a three-way mirror in a dressing room. And that’s when they come face-to-face with back fat a.k.a. bra bulge.

You could spend hours toning and tightening your butt and stomach (because you think they are the most noticeable parts) but if you don’t work your back, you are actually missing out on an overall defined look. Also, strong back muscles are the best defence against pain, injury and poor posture.

Banish bra fat

So here are some classic moves to get rid of bra fat and get a well sculpted, strong, sexy back.

Bent-Over Row

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, back straight, and knees slightly bent for support. Hold a dumbbell in each hand.
  • Keeping your back straight, bend 90 degrees from the waist and allow your arms to hang down toward the floor, palms facing your legs.
  • Squeeze your shoulder blades together, and bend your elbows, raising the dumbbells up to either side of your torso.
  • Hold and then slowly lower back to the starting position.


Lateral Pull-Down with Band

  • Sit on the edge of a chair with your feet flat on the floor and wide apart.
  • Wrap the ends of an exercise band around each hand, and hold it overhead.
  • Position your left arm straight toward the ceiling (this is the anchor hand), and drop your right hand out to the side about 45 degrees. Both elbows should be slightly bent.
  • Keeping your left arm stable, contract your back muscles and pull your right arm down until your right hand is in line with your chest.
  • Pause and then return to the starting position.


Seated Back Fly

  • Sit on the edge of a chair with your feet close together and a light dumbbell in each hand.
  • Lean forward from the waist, and let your arms hang down next to your calves, with your elbows bent slightly and your palms facing each other.
  • Squeeze your shoulder blades together, and raise the weights to your sides in an arcing motion until your upper arms are parallel to the floor.
  • Pause and then slowly return to the starting position.

Do these exercises three to four days a week - 1 set of each exercise back to back without taking any breaks in between moves. After the last exercise, rest 1 to 2 minutes, and repeat the full circuit twice.
