Upper Back Exercises Will Stop You Looking Like...
The upper back exercises that you're about to discover will stop that hunched back in its tracks and put you on the road to perfect posture.
You see, most people - me included - spend way too much time at the computer. They slave away for hours at a time...
typing, typing, typing...
And all the time, their upper back muscles are getting weaker, they're hunching, they're getting grumpy, tired and sore.
One way to fix this problem is with upper back exercises. They are part of the key to fixing posture problems and sore backs.
Have You Got Back Pain That You Just Can't Shake?
Sadly, back pain is often more complicated that just strengthening with upper back exercises. Sometimes the pain doesn't even originate from your back at all!
Luckily, I've found a great solution...
I was looking around on the net for back pain relief info and I stumbled across this free book. I read it and was very impressed. It's incredibly thorough and I would be surprised if you didn't manage to get rid of your pain using this method.
Note: You can either pay for shipping or download it as an e-book.
But before you start on the exercises, there's something you need to learn...
Pretend that I just handed you a new $100 bill and told you that you could keep it...IF... yes I know, there's always a catch!
The catch is, you can keep the bill IF you can hold it, and walk away with it in between your shoulder blades. Hmmm. Do you think you could do it?
Try it out. Use a piece of paper if you're running low on $100 bills. Notice how hard you have to squeeze between your shoulder blades. That's it! That's the "secret technique". Simple huh.
That technique will help you tremendously when you do these upper back exercises. It will activate many more muscle fibers in your upper back.
So with that knowledge safely under your belt lets get underway.
- Bent over barbell rows
- Bent over fly's
- Back shrugs
- Swimming without a pool - Freestyle
- Swimming without a pool - Breaststroke
- Back squeezes
Bent Over Barbell Rows
For this exercise you should lean forward slightly while keeping your back straight. Ask someone else to check you if you're not sure about your posture. Make sure your knees are slightly bent and you're balanced well.
These are good training for being able to start a chainsaw. The exercise works one side of your upper back at a time.
This exercise can often tire out your bicep before you finish. Don't worry though, keep it up, it's still working.
Bent Over Fly's
As with all the bent over exercises you need to keep your back very straight.
Make sure your back is straight and your knees are slightly bent.
Swimming Without a Pool - Freestyle
This is a very tough exercise because your upper back is constantly under tension.
Swimming Without a Pool - Breaststroke
Same again. This is a very tough exercise because your upper back is constantly under tension.
These are good for an all over back workout.
These are typically a lower back exercise but if you use the squeeze technique it becomes one of our upper back exercises.
We hope that you enjoy using these upper back exercises. Adding them to your home fitness training routine on a regular basis will strengthen and tone your upper back like never before. With your newly aquired knowledge of "the squeeze" you exercises will become more effective so that when you do them, they work!
