Bye, Bye Back Fat: 6 Moves to a Sexier Back

February 11, 2015 3 min read

The back is one of the most neglected areas that women tend to work on. Honestly, it's just not a part that we see everyday so it often goes unnoticed. Here are 6 perfect exercises to strengthen and tone your lower back and decrease the presence of back fat: 1. Supermans DSC_0634
  1. Lie face down on your stomach with arms and legs extended. Keep your neck in a neutral position.
  2. Keeping your arms and legs straight (but not locked) and torso stationary, simultaneously lift your arms and legs up toward the ceiling to form an elongated “u” shape with your body — back arches and arms and legs lift several inches off the floor.
  3. Hold for two to five seconds and lower back down to complete one.
2. Deadlifts cloth_diaper
  1. Grasp a bar using an overhand grip (palms facing down). You may need some wrist wraps if using a significant amount of weight.
  2. Stand with your torso straight and your legs spaced using a shoulder width or narrower stance. The knees should be slightly bent. This is your starting position.
  3. Keeping the knees stationary, lower the barbell to over the top of your feet by bending at the hips while keeping your back straight. Keep moving forward as if you were going to pick something from the floor until you feel a stretch on the hamstrings. Inhale as you perform this movement.
  4. Start bringing your torso up straight again by extending your hips until you are back at the starting position. Exhale as you perform this movement.
  5. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
3. Stability Ball Back Extension Recently Updated16
  1. To begin, lie down on an exercise ball with your torso pressing against the ball and parallel to the floor. The ball of your feet should be pressed against the floor to help keep you balanced. For more of a challenge, place a weighted plate under your chin or behind your neck. This is the starting position.
  2. Slowly raise your torso up by bending at the waist and lower back. Remember to exhale during this movement.
  3. Hold the contraction on your lower back for a second and lower your torso back down to the starting position while inhaling.
  4. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions prescribed in your program.
4. Knee to Chest cloth_diaper  
  1. Start off by lying on the floor.
  2. Extend one leg straight and pull the other knee to your chest. Hold under the knee joint to protect the kneecap.
  3. Gently tug that knee toward your nose.
  4. Switch sides. This stretches the buttocks and lower back of the bent leg and the hip flexor of the straight leg.
  5. Then hold both knees to your chest.
5. Bent Over Barbell Row cloth_diaper
  1. Bend knees slightly and bend over bar with back straight.
  2. Grasp bar with wide overhand grip
  3. Pull bar to upper waist.
  4. Return until arms are extended and shoulders are stretched downward. Repeat.
6. Hug a Ball Stretch cloth_diaper
  1. Sit down on the floor.
  2. Straddle an exercise ball by wrapping your arms around the ball and lower your hips toward the floor.
  3. Hug the ball and adjust your legs so that your feet are flat on the floor.

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 2-3 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.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
