Back and Biceps Gym Workout

Hi Love!

Today's workout is back and biceps for the gym. Back is so important and I think it's something ladies can sometimes neglect. You can't hit booty and legs everyday, girl! From an aesthetics standpoint, as you add muscle to the back, your waist continues to look smaller and smaller. It's all about proportions, and growing the back creates a V shaped taper into your waist. 

Before we get started, let's talk through some of the exercise terms you will need to know for this workout. These will help you amp up the intensity of your workout so you can build muscle as efficiently as possible. 

Exercise Terms to Know

Slow Negatives: The negative portion of any exercise is when you're moving in the same direction as the resistance. The negative during a squat is when you're dropping into the squat. The negative during a bicep curl is when you're lowering the weights back down to the starting position. The negative during a lat pulldown is when your arms are...

Cable Machine Back Workout

Hi love!

I’m not going to lie, back day has always been one of my faves. As a bikini competitor, I am obsessed with working on my ratios and creating that gorgeous hourglass shape.

Let’s be honest, I was absolutely not born with it. It’s something I continuously build because my natural shape was always… well…. lanky! Anyways, this is good news. If you’re like me and you were built without those coveted feminine curves OR if you just want to make your already bangin’ curves more pronounced, then read on. 

Working your back is step 1 to an hourglass shape! The wider and more sculpted your back is, the smaller your waist looks. 

In this workout, we are going to use just a cable machine to sculpt some beautiful back muscles. We will hit the back from all angles and using several different attachments.

My gym is awesome but there are definitely days during which it is really hard to get a hold of all the equipment I...

At Home Back Exercises with Weights and a Resistance Band

 
 

Hey babe!

In this post, I'm going to demo some back exercises you can do at home with just a single dumbbell and a resistance band. I'm using a booty band here because that's what I had available but you could easily replace the booty band with a longer band loop or a band with handles. Whatever you have available will work. It's all about getting creative!

What You Might Not Know About Back Workouts

When I first got started with weight lifting, there was a lot I didn't know. (There's a lot to learn!) I would often find myself working the muscle groups I enjoyed working (or knew better HOW to work) over and over again and skipping other muscle groups. 

We tend to take back workouts for granted. Of course, there are huge benefits as far as improving your posture. But also, if your goals are aesthetic, back workouts are where it's at, girl! 

Most women that come to me for 1:1 coaching want to achieve some sort of hourglass figure. They want to look fit and...

Gym Back Workout for Women

First, let's talk about the benefits

Many women neglect their back during their gym workouts, favoring legs, glutes, and abs over    their upper body. When it comes to creating that ideal tight, toned hourglass figure, the back is a severely underrated key player. Not only that but there are several health benefits to a strong back. 

Building an Hourglass Shape

Aesthetically, building the lats is a great way to create an hourglass figure. Building a certain shape is all about playing with your body's proportions. Unfortunately, there's only so much you can do to shrink your waist. Some people, genetically, have shorter, blockier torsos. You can do cardio and stick to bodyweight core movements, but it will only take you so far. 

Building your lats will widen the upper body to make the waist look even smaller! Working your back helps you to create that upper body "V" shape that can create the illusion of curves on a woman who might naturally not have...
