5.0 Stars · 43 Reviews

Most people want a flatter stomach, but it’s not about doing more crunches: it’s about developing a strong backside so you stand taller and reverse the natural effects of sitting and hunching forward. These are the moves that will help you stand tall and project confidence. Let’s get your sexy back!   

Equipment needed:

  • none

Optional advanced equipment:

  • 2 light dumbbells



Difficulty: Beginner

The level and duration
30 minutes is just long enough to keep me motivated (I know I don’t have to suffer for too long!) The level/build is appropriate for someone who hasn’t been active in a long time.

The Slow Build!!
Similar to others I tool a lengthy break from consistently working out and am loving the slow, intentional build up. I am always so tempted to punish myself with crazy hard exercises after long breaks, but we all know where that gets us (burn out!). Super excited to continue this 21 day journey - THANK YOU for putting this together!

Great workout!
I love all of Anna's workouts. She's so good at giving modifications & alignment cues, and her enthusiasm is awesome. Worked up a sweat today!

Good strength training
Good workout. I did not expect my Fitbit to register it as exercise as it did not have any jumping or mountain climbers but it did! And I was sweating a bit. It also has lots of great modifications.

30 minutes fly by
I thought I might get bored doing 30min workouts at home, but these sessions are varied and the time flies by. Clear instructions and great coaching too.

Great workout, perfect 30 minutes to really feel it!
This was an awesome workout and I am impressed by how sweaty I am from this strengthening routine! Not as sweaty as a cardio or HIIT class, but enough sweat to feel like I put in some work - which I did! Loved the variations and modifications in this one. Thanks POPSUGAR team! Also love the diversity of participants in your videos!

Starting over
I took such a long break from working out that I’m pretty much starting over. I put it off because I was dreading it, but after day one of the challenge, I had more energy and looked forward to today’s workout soooo much!! Super awesome, love the modifications I can utilize until I get stronger, and I’m enjoying Anna’s coaching. She’s been my favorite on PopSugar for years, so this is great. :)

Back work
Again this is not high cardio but it was nice to slow down and really focus on specific parts of the body. Before I knew it I was sweating even though there is not much cardio.

Love this series
This is my 2nd day of easing back into working out after a shoulder/spine injury...while trying to stay active during SIP. Love Anna's encouragement and all the variations. I'm positive I'm going to be stronger after all 21 days.

30-Minute Sexy-Back Workout.
Have a hard time stretching the shoulder but the rest was awesome. Love the encouraging words...

Definitely Use Weights
I recommend using weights for a better back workout; otherwise, the routine focuses on the shoulders. I liked the glute exercises in the back bend position since it was also a great chest opener.

Intense workout !
Loved it ! This workout was more intense than day 1, but just for the right amount of time. Like, you know it won't be for an excruciatingly long moment for each workout, so you can give it your best!

Strong Back
I don't know about you, but something about this workout require a bit more effort than day one. Love the way Anna communicates with the other ladies AND all of us working out at home. It kind of reminds me of THAT podcast meme. 😂 Definitely feeling this workout well after actually working out! 💪🏻

Felt the burn!
Great workout! I used cans of beans for my light weights and that was enough for me to get a great workout! Day 2/21 done!

This was really nice
I did this work out with my best friend. It was really fun and helpful, we are sweating like 2 pigs and we definitely feel it in our backs.

Sexy Back
There's nothing sexy about me today...It's really hard getting back into motion. Thanks for the alternate methods; at least I can still do that! Can't wait to see how sexy rears its head when the 21 days are done...I'm in it for the long haul! Sharon B. October 8, 2019

Loving this!
These workouts are great! This one was challenging, but offered so many modifications that I was able to keep up. I even thought how this is workout that I can reuse many times in the future because of the harder modifications. It can always challenge me no matter my fitness level in the futures. Also really appreciated how well form was explained. I was confident that I was doing each exercise correctly. Thanks Anna!

great back workout!
I really enjoyed the workout, Anna is just great!!! With the current pain in my shoulder, knee and lower back I was able to do the workout and some times even the advanced version!!! Looking forward to the next one :-)

Day 2
Definitely harder than day two, but we were able to finish it. The plank is always the hardest!
