How to Get A Toned Upper Back

One of the best exercises that I’ve found for my upper back is to do chin ups!

Yes, I know that they can feel very hard to do when you start, but trust me – you’ll see progress really quickly.

Before I really started to work my back muscles, I found that I always had a bit of back fat poking out underneath my bra. It wasn’t nice looking at all!

But this was one of the exercises that really helped me tone my upper back and remove some of the fat.

So let’s get to this.

For chin ups, you will want to work up to about 3 sets of 15 reps.

If you can only do some partial chin ups to start, that is ok.

Some people even do chin ups standing on a chair so that they only have to pull a little bit at first.

To get started, take a comfortable grip on the bar where your hands are about shoulder-width apart.

 

Make sure that both of your palms face towards you.

Then, pull yourself up until your chin is above the bar, or your chest touches the bar.

 

Once you have done that, slowly lower yourself back down to the starting position, where you are hanging from the bar and then repeat.

As I mentioned earlier, even if you can only do partial chin ups at first, if you keep at it, you will notice that your strength will increase quickly and you will be able to do more chin ups soon.

One of the things that I like about doing chin ups is that you can do them almost anywhere that has a horizontal bar strong enough to support your weight on!

So if you want to tone your back, make sure you add some chin ups to your routine.

Good luck!
