There are several muscles that make up the mid/upper back: the traps, rhomboids, teres major and minor, erector spinae, and infraspinatus. Most of these are responsible for one primary movement: retraction of the scapula. Anytime you pull a weight toward your body horizontally from out in front of you, such as when you row, all those muscles are firing.
When it comes to building a thick, well developed back, you must row to grow. Which is why the Barbell Row is, by far, the best overall mass builder when it comes to back development. Not only are you building back thickness through loading the function of scapula retraction, but the lats—which are responsible for back width—are getting a good deal of stimulus as well.

Don’t Settle With Okay; Become More Beautiful
As the adage goes, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” The main ingredient to feeling beautiful is doing whatever makes you feel the best! Read this article to get some tips on how to put your best face and body forward, and let your inner beauty show on the outside.
To plump your lips, use white eyeshadow just on top of the cupid’s bow on your top lip, in the center. When this area is highlighted, it will reflect the light and make your upper lip seem fuller.
Instead of spending heaps of cash for a luxury moisturizer, consider trying coconut oil. Coconut oil will minimize the appearance of small wrinkles and some fine lines because it is absorbed by the skin easily. With natural ingredients that fight fungal and bacterial infections, coconut oil is also effective against minor skin ailments like acne, eczema and psoriasis.
Make sure you sharpen all of your makeup pencils. This will also help you keep them clean. Put the liner in the freezer for ten minutes, then sharpen it.
To prevent buildup on your hair, use a clarifying shampoo once a week. Over time, residue from styling products and conditioner can build up on your hair, leaving it dull and lifeless. Using a clarifying shampoo at least once a week can remove this buildup, leaving your hair shiny, bouncy and full of life.
Make sure that your blush and your lip color are in harmony. If you are using blush, it is important to make sure that it matches the color you are using for your lips. Pink should be with pink, red with red, etc. If the colors vary too greatly from one another, they will clash terribly.
When you want the added beauty of curled lashes, and do not want to hassle with getting them to set, try this: before you use the curler, apply a thin coat of mascara to your lashes. Then while your lashes are still wet, use the curler. Doing this will allow you to curl your eyelashes faster and easier.
Use eyedrops throughout your day to keep your early morning sparkle. That will stop your eyes from getting irritated and dry, too. Eye drops are especially beneficial to those who stare at a computer screen all day, because they can relieve tiredness. Keep eyedrops handy in your desk or purse.
Filing your nails is a wonderful way of making them look healthy. When filing, it is important to only go in one direction. Doing this will make sure that you don’t get any breakage from causing stress to your nails. You also won’t have to deal with any hang nails that can snag.
To keep from getting eye bags, drink plenty of water before you go to bed. One of the leading causes of eyebags is dehydration during the night. If you still have eyebags when you wake up, rest cold, caffeinated teabags on your eyes for about 10 minutes. This will nourish your eyes and make the bags disappear.
Visine is an important part of any beauty kit. If you have been studying for a few hours, your eyes might be red. Your appearance will look older than it should because of this. Put a little Visine in your eyes to clear that up. You can use it to clear up acne too. Put some on a cotton ball, and dab the cotton ball on a pimple. Your skin should clear up fairly soon.
A great way to make small eyes appear to look much bigger is to steer clear of dark shades of eye shadow. Begin by using a nude base as a foundation, and then use a shadow that is one or two shades darker than the foundation in the crease. After blend the color up towards the brow by using your finger.
A quick touch-up with some makeup you have on hand can stop your roots from showing until you can get to the hair salon. If you have darker hair, you can hide any gray roots you have by touching up the roots themselves with black mascara. To hide gray roots in blond hair, dust some golden eyes shadow on them.
If a woman wants to give her breasts more lift for a special occasion, to fit better in a particular dress, or any other reason one could think of then a push up bra might be the answer. This easy clothing choice can easily make a woman feel more beautiful.
Give your skin a hint of color and shimmer by mixing a touch of bronzer with your favorite body lotion. This is a great way to highlight your arms, legs, chest and other areas for holiday parties or other events without throwing away time, money, and your skin’s health in a tanning bed.
Take care of your teeth. A beautiful smile can brighten your appearance just as much as a terrible smile can hurt your appearance. Make sure to have dental checkups as well as to fix any cosmetic dental problems that make you feel uncomfortable. Being happy with your smile will show on your face; it will make you look that much better.
Eyebrows are a key facial feature that require balance. You want eyebrows that are defined yet thick enough to bring attention to your eyes. Tweeze out the small hairs so that your eyebrows look more lively and full.
Brush your hair at the right time. If you have straight hair, comb and brush when your hair is dry. If your hair is curly, brush and comb when your hair is wet. This allows you to work with the texture of your hair while avoiding frizz and fly aways in the process.
Beauty is important to many people, and can be a great source for high self-esteem. While appearance is only one part of beauty, doing whatever makes you feel you look your best is a big step in the right direction. Remember the tips in this article to start showing your inner beauty!
