I was just wondering if any of you would like to share their most efficient and favourite exercises for back and bum. :)

Squats and lunges are great for toning and strengthing the lower body. For the back I like back extensions. I prefer using a machine or you could lay face down on the floor and do a superman pose. I also like dead rows and one arm bent over rows using free weights.

Hope that helps.

I love deadlifts!

Deadlifts ROCK! Also try bridges...you know...lie on the floor on your back with bent legs and feet on the floor, and push your hips/pelvis toward the ceiling.

Back extensions, deadlifts, wide stance squats (target glutes more) and walking lunges are my favorites. And don't be afraid to lift heavy!!

I use the back extension machine everyday and love it.

Thank you so much - I'm starting from today :)

Also....thanks for reminding about that "superman pose" exercise - now I remember we used to do it very often back in primary school at the corrective exercise classes! It was working wonders! Back muscles were really toned :)
