Sculpt Your Body in Six Easy Moves

Target: The latissimus dorsi The move: Plow Sit on a chair with legs extended, feet flexed, heels on floor; loop a resistance band around soles of feet and hold a handle in each hand at sides, palms up. With torso tall and shoulders down, draw arms as far as you can behind you, squeezing shoulder blades together (as shown). Return to start. Do 3 sets of 12 reps. Focus on keeping arms straight, Appel advises, to work your lats, not your biceps.

Palms up With torso tall and shoulders down, draw arms as far as you can behind you, squeezing shoulder blades together (as shown). Return to start. Do 3 sets of 12 reps. Focus on keeping arms straight.

Target: The serratus anterior Why it works: Put your hands on the sides of your rib cage at your bra strap. You're feeling these small, hardworkin' muscles. When they're strong, they act like little arrows pointing to defined abs. "The serratus highlights or accents the ribs, making the whole torso appear more defined," says trainer James Bowman, owner of Northwest Strength Lab on Bainbridge Island, Washington.

Target: The serratus anterior The move: Floor Press Lie faceup holding a weight in left hand, arm extended over shoulder. Keeping right arm at side, lift left arm until shoulder blade and head are off floor (as shown); hold for 3 beats. Return to start. Do 5 reps. Switch sides; repeat. "Lying down helps you stay more stable than standing, and it allows you to lift heavier, so you'll see results faster," Bowman says. Use the heaviest weight you can, then work up to a 20-pounder.

Floor Press This move targets the little hardworking muscles near your rib cage that, when strong, make your whole torso appear more defined.
