When working out, most women pay more attention to their glutes, quads, arms and abs, but tend to neglect their back. This is really unfortunate as strong, sculpted back is not only great to look at, but can help with posture, spine support and losing weight.

Here are 4 effective back exercises that will help you get strong, sexy back.

1.Smith Machine Inverted Rows

Set the bar (it should be to your waist height) and lie on your back. Take the bar with both of your hands and keeping your body straight, pull yourself up towards it trying to touch it with your chest. Now return yourself to the start position in a controlled manner. While doing the exercise, hold and squeeze your back and arm muscles.

Repeat as many times as necessary.

2.Bent Over Rows

Hold the dumbbells and with your feet shoulder-width apart, slightly bend your knees. Bring your torso forwards by bending at the waist and keeping your back straight. With your elbows close to the body, pull the dumbbells up, squeezing your shoulder blades together. Pause, then slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position.

Repeat as many times as necessary.

3.Plank Rows

Hold a dumbbell in each hand and get into a push-up plank position. Your back should be straight and your core tight. Pull your right arm with the dumbbell up to your chest while balancing yourself on your left hand. Repeat with the left arm.

Repeat as many times as necessary.

4.Lying Alternating Leg Lifts

With your back on the floor, arms at your side and feet extended out straight in front of you, lift your right leg slowly off the floor. Raise the leg until it is at a 90-degree angle with the ground and then lower it slowly. Repeat with your left leg.

Repeat as many times as necessary.
