Bring Sexy Back With 2 Simple Moves

My first holiday party invitation arrived in the mail this weekend. Guess it's time to pull out those little black dresses again! My favorite? A backless number. If your party wear calls attention to your back too, prepare to buff-it-up and get beautiful from behind with these two exercises. You'll need an exercise ball for both.

The Move: Back Buffer


How To Do It:

  1. Lie face down with midsection on ball, hands behind head, elbows out to sides.

  2. Slowly lift chest up, raising shoulders up until body is in straight line from head to feet. And slowly lower down to start. Repeat for 8-12 reps and 1-3 sets.

The Move: Back Sculptor


How To Do It:

  1. Lie face down with midsection on ball, hands on sides of ball, legs extended, toes on floor.
  2. Extend right arm and lift left leg until butt is engaged. Hold for a few seconds, switch sides. Aim for 8-12 reps and 1-3 sets.

The second move, back sculptor, they had me do as part of physical therapy to strengthen my lower back. It works. It seems like a simple move, but it can be really hard.
