The 3 Most Effective Exercises To Get Rid Of Back Fat, Trainer Says

Besides the belly, a common body part where people want to lose fat is the back, particularly the upper back and/or the love handle area. If your goal is fat loss, you need to focus on the basics: eating at a calorie deficit, getting in regular cardio, and performing strength training. Placing a major emphasis on strength training is key—especially to get rid of back fat. This is because you can choose exercises that directly target that area, which helps build muscle and direct blood flow there. When it comes to exercise selection, you want to choose compound pulling movements, since they involve multiple muscle groups and will burn more calories, leading to more general fat loss as well.

Want to get rid of back fat? Here are the top three exercises I recommend you incorporate into your regimen. Check them out below, and next, be sure to read The 6 Best Exercises for Strong and Toned Arms in 2022, Trainer Says.

To perform a chin-up, begin by grabbing the bar just outside of shoulder-width with your palms facing away from you. Pull your shoulder blades down. Next, pull your torso to the bar so that your chin clears it, squeezing your lats and upper back. Make sure to lean back slightly, reaching from your sternum rather than your chin as you come up. Lower yourself back into the starting position before performing another rep. Complete 3 sets of 6 to 8 reps.

For this exercise, position yourself parallel to a bench so that one hand and knee are firmly planted on the surface for balance. Grip a dumbbell with your opposite hand and your arm extended straight down toward the floor. Then, pull the dumbbell up towards your hip, squeezing your lats and upper back at the very end of the movement. Straighten your arm back down, and get a nice stretch at the bottom before performing the next rep. Complete 3 sets of 10 to 12 reps on each arm.

If you want a little more cardio or anaerobic work, you can add the rowing machine to your routine. Start toward the front of the machine with your knees bent and your hands grasping the handles. Then, use all the power in your legs to push your entire body backward in order to straighten your legs. Finish by leaning back and pulling with your arms and upper back until the handles are touching your chest.

If you're used to doing anaerobic activity, you can sprint hard for 500 meters for 2 to 3 sets, or start off building your endurance by rowing 1,000 to 2,000 meters.

Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
