[tps_header]When moving through your workout, it’s easy to forget about the parts of your body that you can’t see, such as your back.

Some of my favorite exercises are those that help to strengthen and tone my shoulders, upper and lower back. As an added bonus, they don’t require much equipment and can be done just as easily at home as in the gym. Here are my top five:
