    The row exercise is fundamental for targeting the large muscles in your back. 


    Begin by standing 1-2 feet behind a chair, with your torso bent over, core engaged, feet slightly wider than hip width. Grasp a dumbbell in your right hand using a weight you can lift 10-15 times, brace your upper body with your left hand on the chair. Alternatively, if you do not have a dumbbell, you can use a water bottle or soup can as a weight instead. Start with your right arm fully extended. Keeping your right elbow close to the body, shoulder slightly pulled down and back, begin to pull the weight up towards your torso. Once your elbow is slightly behind your torso, gradually lower your right arm to an extended position. Repeat this movement for 10-15 repetitions. Perform the same exercise for the opposite side.

A regular and consistent exercise program is best, but the type and intensity of the exercises required will also vary between individuals(2).  Often seeing a local family physician or a physiotherapist in conjunction with a registered dietitian and athletic therapist is a great option to take control of this condition. Smart Food Now and exercise is also optominal for overall health.
