The Best Exercise For Back Fat


The lat pull-down is one of the best exercises for fighting back fat, and using a pronated grip (palms facing away from your body) activates more muscles, researchers found. Here's how to score the benefits, according to Brynn Jinnett of Refine Method in NYC:

If you're at the gym:


Kneel on one knee, handles in opposite hands, palms facing down (A). Draw shoulder blades together and pull elbows beside waist, palms and thumbs facing up (B).

If you're at home:


Kneel with band anchored in door frame, 1 end in each hand with arms extended at shoulder level, palms facing down (A). Draw shoulder blades together and pull hands beside hips (B).
