Don’t turn your back on back fat! Because those drooping back folds are associated with insulin resistance, high testosterone, and low carb tolerance. To get rid of back fat, you must eat healthy and exercise the back muscles.

These muscles – the lats, traps, erector spinae, rhomboids, etc. – support your spine and back, aid daily movements, strengthen your shoulders, chest, and core, and improve posture. Here are 5 exercises to get rid of back fat.

Muscles in the low back, abdomen, buttocks, and hips are all necessary for supporting and stabilising the spine. Keeping these muscles active and strong can help avoid low back injury, and can minimise pain if the spine does become injured.

Doing exercises to strengthen the lower back can help alleviate and prevent lower back pain. It can also strengthen the core, leg, and arm muscles.
