Welcome to day 4 of the Spring Exercise Challenge!

As Spring temperatures start to rise, tank tops and sundresses are beginning to make an appearance.
Show them off with a sleek and sexy back.
One of the most common trouble areas for women is know as 'bra strap bulge'. This is when fat hangs over or under your bra strap.

The most effective ways to reduce the bra strap bulge is through cardio and exercise.
Any form of cardio will do, but the preferred form of cardio is the elliptical. The back and forth arm motion is not only an excellent form of fat burning but it also targets the back muscles.

The best and most effective exercises to blast the back fat are:

  1. The One Arm Row
  2. Bent Over Row
  3. Tubing Row

Below is a video  demonstrating these 3 exercises as well as information on how many sets and reps you should be doing.

Today's challenge is to do at least one of the above 3 exercises.
Do you have 'bra strap bulge'?
How often do you wor out your back? What exercises do you do?

I have been doing 30 day shred. Jillian does back exercises in there. And the work I do helps with arms and back anyways.

I recently went bra shopping and for the most part the bulge was awful. I can't use an elliptical though, very hard on my knees for some reason so I'm always looking for other ways to get in good cardio. These look like great exercises though to try, good way to finally put my hand weights to use!

I'm lucky enough not to have this problem. I have to focus on my hips and thighs.
