Liz Stuart: You are going to be working your chest and back now, and when I chest I mainly mean the area here, that we often complaint about when we wearing best tops you want to tone that area out, I'm going to use some dumbbells for this I have got 2, 3 kilo dumbbells, you could take it down to about 2 kilos or 1 even for this part of exercise we are about to do. So bend your knees to pick up your dumbbells feet slightly apart and knees bend. Okay, so we are doing a pack that exercise but we've got our free weights. So you are bringing your elbows out to this side and ready trying to keep those elbows up at shoulder height, trying not to let them drop down, Then do eight of these, so we need to do 4 more and thus two and then we are going to change it to a bend over to roll, to target the back. Bending out your knees hands down and then just bring the weights up so the following the line of your thighs, so just keep thinking about the back rather than letting them come up any further. And there is six more of these. So breath out is your as your bring your hands up and what this doing is just working your back as well as your arms could you bend down when you having to your strength in back to stabilize the body, and then lets go back to back to that pack of exercise. So hands up elbows up at shoulder height and keep your stomach muscles really locked tight, because you don't want your back to arch out you really workout problems if you lat that happen, Keep going and two more and two, good and stand again and bring this weights up, raise between 12 in the up nice flow less movement coming good do really well, and stronger back will really help your stomach as well, line up really help into posture and by exercising good posture it can make yourself low a whole dress size smaller or about to showing lighter it really its true, If you have a look in front of the mirror if you slouch and then straighten yourself for by bringing your stomach muscles and imaging your piece of strain putting your from the top of your head, you are notice a massive difference okay hey.
