Many of us spend so much time and effort on the muscles we can see that we forget about the other side. We forget we need to tighten and tone our backs until we catch a terrifying glimpse of that pesky bra bulge. That unsightly roll of fat that eeks out under your bra band and trips up your sleekest look. But that bra fat doesn't need be there! Your back is made up of interwoven muscles that help you lift, pull, sit, and stand up straight. When these muscles are strong, they will pull your shoulders back and make you look taller and leaner. [bctt tweet="4 Moves To Banish Your Bra Bulge "] These 4 exercises, put together by author and fitness instructor Michele Stanten, specifically target the muscles around your upper back, the ones around your bra band. Do two sets of 10 to 12 repetitions, with a minute of rest in between, 2 or 3 days a week. If all you need to do is tone your muscles, you should see improvements in 4-6 weeks!

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, 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, and drop your right hand out to the side about 45 degrees. Both elbows should be slightly bent, and the band should be taut. 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, then return to the starting position. Perform a full set, then switch sides.

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 armshang 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, then slowly return to the starting position.

Upright Row

Stand with your legs about shoulder-width apart and knees slightly bent. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, arms hanging down at the outside of your thighs, palms facing back. Squeeze your shoulder blades, bend your elbows, and pull the weights up and out to the sides until your elbows reach about shoulder height. Pause, then straighten your arms and return to the starting position. It is important to remember that if you have a few extra pounds you need to lose, you may not notice results from these exercises alone. You'll have to burn off the fat first. Losing fat requires you to do 2 things, clean up your eating habits and move your body. The BodyRock Meal Plan can help you in the diet department.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
