Bra bulge, back boob, back fat, whatever you want to call it, it’s not cute. Nothing ruins a strapless dress quite like some flesh overflow! The first step is to make sure you’re wearing the right size bra, and the second is to tone up your upper back area. Sometimes women neglect the upper back area because they’re afraid of bulking up and getting “man shoulders,” but nothing could be further from the truth. Just add a few of these exercises to your current workout routine to banish bra bulge for good!
1. Rocking Plank: Get into a regular pushup plank position and rise onto your toes, then rock back to starting position. The rocking motion will help to tone your back! For the full description,
2. Dumbbell Front + Lateral Raise: This is a great move to work your arms and back! Make sure to keep your legs shoulder-width apart and not to bend your elbows.
3. Single-Arm Clean and Press: Squat to grab your weight (kettlebell or dumbbell). Come out of the squat and throw the hips forward to help your lift the weight. Bring into a “high pull” position so your elbow is above the shoulder and the weight is touching your chest. “Catch” the weight by bending your knees while simultaneously dropping the elbow underneath the weight. Using the bend in your knees, drive through the heels and press the weight overhead. Reverse the movement by bringing the elbow back into the body. Then raise the elbow up again and drop the weight straight down to the ground to begin again.
