No specific exercise: Unfortunately, spot reduction just doesn't work. To lose the fat on your back, you need to lose fat all over. Do a combination of aerobic exercise, strength training, and stretching for the best overall results. Strengthening the muscles underlying the back area will tone that area, but will not specifically lose fat. Try these exercises: http://bit.Ly/wgko6g.
