Back Fat Exercises

1 of 12 Carve Your Back Everyone has their trouble areas. I often work with clients that have trouble shedding stubborn back fat. It can be frustrating, especially since you can’t spot reduce. The appearance of back fat most commonly results from a combination of several things including atrophy of the muscles of the back and excess body fat. Atrophy of the back muscles basically means that they have lost their strength and muscle tone. The main causes of muscle atrophy include poor nutrition and a lack of targeted exercise (resistance training). Poor nutrition and a lack of exercise are also related to excess body fat, the second contributor to back fat. The combination of both of these contribute to excess fat tissue accumulation around the back and promotes the appearance of back flab around your upper and lower back as well as around your sides. The flab around your lower back and sides greatly contribute to the appearance of ‘muffin top’. The good news is, you can get rid of the excess fat. Rather than just focusing on calorie burning, you’re going to have to construct a focused plan that avoids these things.

Anyone who’s ever seen an un-retouched image of a celebrity knows that some of the fittest and most beautiful people in the word have trouble spots—just like us regular folks! While some of us have trouble making our belly fat disappear other people can’t rid their bodies of back fat no matter how hard they try. (Sometimes referred to as a bra bulge, back fat is that that annoying band of chub that clings to the back muscles and creates a fold of skin above the waistline or a bulge that peeks out of a bra band.) While we’d love to tell you that there are tons of ways to target your back fat, it’s actually impossible to spot-reduce flab. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. If you’re serious about firming up your back, you’ll need to decrease your overall body fat, which means you’ll look slimmer everywhere—not just below your bra band. (Woohoo!)

How to Get Rid of Back Fat The hardest reality about losing weight is that you can’t just circle a specific spot on your body and melt away the fat. It takes smart full-body training to really burn fat, and you’ll see the results all over. What you can do is focus your strengthening and toning exercises on one muscle area to isolate a trouble spot and really define those muscles—which, when combined with cardio (running, elliptical, whatever form you like best and will actually stick with), will give you the results you want.

The USDA may recommend an hour of cardio five times a week for optimal heart health, but jogging alone won’t help you lose your back fat. “You need a combination of both weight training and cardio to get fat off your body,” Mike Duffy, CPT, explains, adding, “Cardio alone will only train one type of muscle fiber and you’ll only be building one part of your fat-burning furnace. I see many people doing tons of cardio every day and not lifting weights. They never change the way they look.” Adding HIIT and weight training sessions to your workout a few times a week will also put “you in oxygen debt, so your body will have to play ‘catch up’ after the workout is done. This increases the rate of metabolism to tap into more fat loss during and after the workout,” Duffy explains.

To amplify your workout, Stokes recommends doing a plyometric move after each exercise to use the same muscle in a more dynamic fashion. “You want to be dynamic with your upper body as you are for your lower body,” she says. “Kind of like cardio for your back.” After you finish a set of any of the above exercises, do 30 seconds of a medicine ball toss: Bring a 10-pound medicine ball over your head, stretching your back and lat muscles, and then throw it as hard as you can into the ground, contracting your upper back and lats. You’ll be using your back muscles and getting your heart rate up at the same time—the ultimate back fat banisher.

By now, we’ve all probably heard of green tea’s fat-busting effects. But, make way for its far more powerful cousin, matcha. According to Kristen Carlucci, RD, matcha green tea has more EGCG (a powerful antioxidant that increases levels of the hunger-banishing hormone CCK) than standard green tea. “One study found that drinking the stuff after exercise can increase your fat burn by up to 25 percent,” says Carlucci. So follow up those bent-over dumbbell rows with a matcha protein shake to trim the fat off your upper and lower back.
