The BEST Exercises to Target Back Fat

The BEST Exercises to Target Back Fat is another short back strength workout from Heather Robertson. As mentioned in the other back workout reviews I am posting today I decided to do an all Heather Robertson back workout. I created a folder/playlist specifically for this morning’s workouts and stacked the workouts I planned to do in the order I planned to do them so they played straight through from beginning to end. I started with her Sexy Back // Resistance Band Workout, followed with this workout then did her At Home Back Workout with Dumbbells and finished everything off with her Back Stretches + Exercises. My back was worked extremely well!

In the intro Heather says that the back exercises alone will not get rid of back fat. You also need a healthy diet and cardio. Each exercise is done for 45 seconds with 15 seconds of rest. There is a counter in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, counting down your interval. During the 15 second recovery between exercises, the next exercise is featured in a rectangle right above the count down clock, which is counting down the 15 seconds.

The BEST Exercises to Target Back Fat is 11:30 minutes; 1 minute intro and the last 20 seconds is Heather talking, no warm up or stretch. Equipment: dumbbells and a stability ball. There is no talking during the workout, just music. The dumbbells listed below are what I used. Heather used one set of dumbbells that looked like her 10 pound dumbbells that she uses in other workouts. Also, since I had just finished her Sexy Back // Resistance Band Workout, my medium resistance band was still laying at the top of my fitness mat. I just used it for the V-Squeeze (#4) that same way it was used in Sexy Back.

  1. Dumbbell Pullover (lean back on stability ball, hold one DB in both hands and do a pullover) (one 35# DB)
  2. Single Arm Row (kneel on floor, one hand resting on stability ball and do a row with other arm) (one 40# DB)
  3. Repeat #2 on other arm
  4. V Squeeze (lay on stomach with arms extended in front of you like superman, raise both arms and feet/legs and while raised, pull elbows back to ribs, push arms back to start and lower arms and legs) (medium tension resistance tube)
  5. Narrow + Wide Row (hinge forward and alternate a narrow row with a wide row) (16.5# DBs)
  6. Repeat #1-5
