Q: I like to wear halter tops in the summer, but my back looks flabby. What can I do to tone up my back and shoulders?

A: The lat pull-down is probably the best exercise for you to tone your upper back. You'll want to use a straight bar and grip it with your hands shoulder-width apart. Be sure to pull the bar no farther down than your sternum. Don't use momentum, and keep your torso straight.
