What can I do to get rid of back fat? (the roll that forms underneath the bra of your bra?) Im losing everything else except that.


Here are a few exercises I do. Really helped with toning the upper and lower back as well as my arms:

1. Lat pulldowns - Both wide and close grip
2. Rows - Bent over dumbell rows (15-20lb dumbell in each hand), seated rows or barbell rows
3. Dips -
4. Assisted Pullups
5. Pushups(flat, incline or decline) - good for both chest and back

I usually do 2-3 sets of 30 reps each. I weight train twice per week.

I have that same problem. My personal trainer said that cardio and diet is what will get rid of that because it's fat. You can tone up the muscles in your back but the fat will still be there unless you burn it off.

I really hope I can make mine at least less apparent by carnival but it's just a very difficult place to lose fat from Sad Good luck!

Absolutely! Hence the reason I incorporate a lot of cardio in my workouts. Basketball But the weight training is critical to tone and definition. Most importantly is your diet though. I think most of us grew up on high carbs; rice, bread, bake, dumpling, provision and pasta. It took a while for me to learn how to choose alternatives that would be better for me. Don't forget portion sizes. We could do just as well with less!

Black Cherry, what are some of the alternatives we can use for rice, bread, pasta, etc. I am particularly fond of provision and pasta so I have great difficulty not incorporating them into my diet. Maybe the whole wheat pasta would be an option.

Whole wheat breads and pastas are definitely healthier alternatives. Additionally, they usually contain more protien and fiber per serving. My trainer also suggests brown rice. Not the parboil rice we call brown rice in Trinidad but real brown rice - which takes forever to cook and I personally do not like. Not sure if you like salads but you can fix a pretty hearty, healthy salad. Try topping mixed lettuce/greens with grilled chicken, avocado, sliced almonds and boiled eggs - perhaps a little feta cheese. I usually dress my salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The key here is to control your portion sizes. Again, I think you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods but watch your portion size and how often you have "heavy meals". If you must, eat your heavier meal at lunch and balance it out with a lighter alternative for dinner. Watch the frequency too (heavy meals should be the exception not the norm). Soups are also good replacements too. Just try not to pack it with too much dumplings and provision because that defeats the purpose. Just a few suggestions! Oh and watch the sides with your meals - potato salad and cole slaw could add a lot more than you bargain for.

Free weights. The personal trainers in the gym tell me that free weights are better because it also works your core muscles so I don't do any machines. For example, when I work on my arms, I sit on the swiss ball with my legs together. When I first started doing this I was very wobbly but as my 'core' started to strengthen I dont wobble as much.

I also find that when I do free weights I get a better cardio workout (imagine that, cardio from weights!) When I'm on the machines I don't feel my heart race at all, even if I'm using heavier weights than the free weights.

p.s. this is all just information I was given at the gym, and my own opinions - if you disagree, please don't bash me people

D > getting cold here too, I just bought thermal gloves yesterday - they really made a huge difference. maybe you need to invest in some thermals to wear under your clothes if you want to exercise outdoors.

funny thing... i've eaten brown rice since i was a kid and i love it. not only that, it really doesn't take too long to cook and once you season it (onions, thyme a little oregano, etc.) it tastes really good. i like it so much i really refuse to eat white rice because there's little to no vitamin content there and it's a waste of calories. i agree with your ideas though, spacing out bigger meals earlier in the day definitely helps with weight loss...

I do a lot of free weights squats and lunges as well. For a more advanced set, try squats on the bosu ball (it's the half looking ball with a flat base). It really helps the core since it entails balancing and stability. Other low wining leg exercises include sqaut holds, step ups and leg presses. You can do your squat holds with your back against the wall or without. 45sec-1min increments.
