A not-so-secret secret among ladies who lift is that a strong, defined back is, well, sexy. Building up your lats and capping them with round, full shoulders adds to a curvy and defined athletic figure, making your waist appear narrower and balancing out the muscle in your legs.
“People have this misconception that if you lift like a guy, you’re going to look like a guy,” says Cassandra Martin, an Instagram fitness sensation and Gym Shark-sponsored athlete. “It’s all in the way you carry yourself. I think the way bodybuilders look is a beautiful shape anyone can achieve.”
Martin’s current physique reflects time spent hitting the gym 5-6 days a week to work on PRs.
“As I got stronger, I grew more obsessed with lifting a lot of weight,” she explains. “And when my body started to change, it was always for the better.”
She also likes to post progress pics in hopes of inspiring others.
For her back workout, Martin likes to lift heavy with lots of volume. The seven lat-dominant exercises in this workout help build muscle in her back while increasing her total-body strength. She recommends doing this workout once a week to give your muscles plenty of time to recover and grow.
