Lower back fat is a stubborn fat which is difficult to burn, but there are some effective exercises that can help all women in losing it very quickly. Make a set of three reps for a real burn.
- Bent Over Lateral Arm Raises
This is probably the best exercise for removing lower back fat.
Here are the steps for its correct performance:
- Bent over with a dumbbell in one hand. Then, place your weight on your hand without the dumbbell. Make sure to tense your lat (the large muscles down the sides of your back) on the side holding the dumbbell, and then elevate your arm till it is straight out by your side. After that, slowly lower it back down, and this is one rep. Perform the same procedure on the other side.
- Bent Over DB Rows
This exercise will bring you great definition for your back. For this move you will need a bench.
Here is the way how to achieve that:
- Place one knee on a bench with your lower leg positioned flat along the bench. Then put
your hand on the same side as your knee while leaning over. Position your hand directly underneath your shoulder. In your other hand hold a dumbbell, placing it on the bench. Then tense your lat which is on the same side with the hand holding the dumbbell. Now, slowly elevate the arm that is holding the dumbbell so that the upper arm is in a parallel line with the ground. Your elbow should be at 90 degree angle. After that slowly lower down the dumbbell, and if need it rest it on the bench. You have completed one rep.
Do the same procedure with the other side.
- Push Ups
Probably most of you know how this exercise goes, but here it is:
- Put your hands on the ground at shoulder width apart, however ensure that your hands are straight underneath your shoulders. Now, straighten your back and legs, standing on the balls of your feet.

The right position for your elbows is at 45 degree angle to your body. In the end, tense your chest and triceps while going back to the initial position. In this way you have made one complete rep.
These exercises will efficiently remove the lower back fat, and at the same time they are working out the whole body.
