1. Resistance Band Squats – Lower Back Dimples Move No1
Normal back squats in a gym require you to set the weights on your shoulders and then squat down to the ground and back up. But these can much easier be achieved with a resistance band. The lower back dimples are formed as you work through the reps. The squatting position is what develops the dimples.
Follow this simple video below, and don’t forget your resistance band.
2. Opposite Arm and Leg Raises/Bird Dog
Get down on all fours. As you extend your left arm you raise you right leg and vice versa.
When you perform a rep you focus your movement into your lower back area which will help to develop the lower back dimples. The ‘Superman’ is an exercise that is performed by lying flat down on the floor with their arm extended in front of you. You should place your legs together while lying flat on your stomach and raise them into the air while extending your arms outward. You should hold this position for about 30 seconds before bringing them back to the ground.
This routine should be performed at least 3 times during every routine.
3. Dead Lifts
Deadlifting is a classic weight training move that is used to develop overall body strength. This is a great move to develop lower back dimples.
Deadlifts require you to squat down and this movement will help to shape up the lower back area. This exercise has the added bonus of working your quads, hamstrings, calves and glutes.
You can use light weights for this one but try to gradually add weights as you improve.
4. Hip Bridges/Pelvic Tilt
Last but by no means least, the hip bridge requires you to lay on your back with your legs bent. You should put your hands at your sides and then slowly lift your pelvis up into the air while having your arms stabilize you. Once the hips are raised in the air, you should hold them there for about 5 seconds. If you can stick to this consistently you will be able to develop back dimples within a fairly short amount of time.
