Workout Wednesday: Tone and Strengthen the Upper and Lower Back

Maybe it's watching Peta wear low back dresses from "Dancing with the Stars" that has inspired this post. Today I want to talk about two of my favorite mat exercises that strengthen, and tone the lower/upper back. 

In my first exercise you reach arms and legs in opposite directions, and use the back to lift the body. Try to hold this position from 1-2 minutes then lower down. Added bonus you work the seat as well. 

In my second exercise, this shouldn't be something new to those yogi's out there. I love doing this reverse bridge! Just like the first exercise try holding the form 1-2 minutes.
