I’m sure you’ve all seen those fitness magazines of women sporting their super toned backs, but perhaps you don’t know anything about the specific exercises for a toned back that you should be doing.

Even if you don’t want to look like a bodybuilder, having a toned back can not only enhance your posture and strength, but also help your body support itself better during all forms of exercise.

Check out my favorite back exercises for a toned back that will leave you fit, toned, and in better shape overall.

1. Pull Ups

I’m not going to lie to you girls;

this is one of the hardest exercises for a toned back that you’ll be doing.

In fact, I can barely do one or two pull-ups!

This not only shows my back needs some serious strength-training, but also shows how little most of us work our backs in this position.

Pull-ups are great for getting a toned back, because the exercise emphasizes muscles that we don’t use very often.

Pull-ups tone and cinch every single inch of your back, which not only enhances the muscular appeal of your back, but it also increases your total upper body strength.

2. Triceps Extensions

Perhaps you’re not big on lifting weights.

I understand that since I’m not one to spend boatloads of time with the weights in the gym myself.

One exercise that I always make sure that I do, however, are triceps extensions, where you raise your arms behind your back with weights as you would in dumb bell rows.

This exercise is extremely efficient in toning your back, and all the muscles in your arms.

I like to get in a squatting position as I hold the weights in my hands, and then row my arms back towards my back.

This tones your back and your butt at the same time, which is a total win-win in my book!
