Almost all personal trainers agree on one thing — even with the most varied workout program, most of their clients forget to watch their back. Women are often the guiltiest of making this big fitness mistake, partly because of the misconception that we can bulk up if we lift too many weights.
This is a full upper-body exercise that emphasizes your lats (the muscles that help you pull your arm
down and back).1
And according to Marks, "This move is effective because it specifically targets your lats — an area that many women neglect! [The lat pullover] tones your lats (the muscle right along your ribs that your bra strap digs into). Be sure to press your lower back into the ground while performing this exercise. It will engage your core and protect your lower back."
