Excess weight is 80% of complaints, the cause of an incorrect lifestyle: little activity, improper diet, sedentary work, etc. Back is one of the most problematic areas of the body, because in most cases, it does not receive the required physical load on the muscles.

Just as fat settles around your waist, it can also rest on your back. This does not make any girl attractive. If liposuction is not an option for you, then you need to adjust your diet to begin with, and then focus on the exercises.

– Avoid flour and light carbohydrates (sweets, ice cream, soda);

– Completely eliminate the smoked and fried foods from the diet;
