Cobra for lower back
Make a memorable exit with these super-fast sculpting moves from Mike Fitch, a trainer at Equinox Fitness in Miami.

Beginner Exercises

1. Cobra

(targets lower back)

  • Lie facedown on the floor with arms at sides, palms down.
  • Keeping abs and glutes tight, lift chest off floor and raise arms up and back toward hips, rotating thumbs up.
  • At the same time, lift legs about 3 inches off floor. Hold for 3 counts and lower back to starting position.
  • Repeat for 8 to 10 reps.

2. Dumbbell Shoulder Shrug

(targets upper back)

  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart, arms at sides with your knees slightly bent.
  • Hold a 5-pound dumbbell in each hand with palms facing in.
  • Keeping abs tight, slowly shrug your shoulders up toward your ears, keeping elbows straight. Hold for 3 counts and lower.
  • Repeat for 8 to 10 reps.

3. Seated Row with Bands

(targets upper back)

  • Sit in a chair and tie a resistance band around a sturdy structure, such as a doorknob, at elbow height, 2 to 3 feet in front of you.
  • Hold one end of band in each hand, palms facing each other.
  • Bend elbows and pull band toward your ribs, pressing shoulders back and together. Hold for 3 counts.
  • Repeat for 8 to 10 reps.

Sexy back exercise is good, but is not good enough to hava a perfect shaped, slim and fit body. For that, I found an excellent reference written by a fitness and nutrition expert Flavia del Monte.Since two months I am following it and very satisfied with it.Now I can see the difference, how my body became slimmer and fitter. I feel healthy too. I recommend it to everybody who wants to loose weight, be slim, fit, but keeping feminine outlook. You can reach it at :
