3. Seated Row (3 Sets X 15-20 Reps)

Kavita said that you have pay attention to your form while doing this exercise and should not swing your body to and fro. Pull the cable hands towards the middle of your torso while breathing in and then take it back to starting position breathing out. Don’t involve your lower back while doing this exercise and concentrate on the maximum contraction at the target back muscles.

4. Shrugs (3 Sets X 15-20 Reps)

While picking up the weights from the ground you must always bring whole torso down bending at knees and pick the weights straight up without jerking your body. Keep arms straight down and position dumbbells in front of your body. Now, perform shrugs focusing on the back muscles connecting, which contour your neck and shoulders.
