His top back-and-shoulders move: Dumbbell Back Rows

Why it’s great: “This exercise strengthens the rhomboids, the muscles in your upper back that connect your shoulder blades to your spine, giving you a toned back and much better posture,” Pasternak says. “You’ll look great in backless dresses, too!”

How to: Sit on a stability ball, holding a 5- to 8-pound dumbbell in each hand. Bend at the waist until torso is parallel to the floor, chest is on knees, and arms are hanging toward the floor. Draw elbows back and up, bringing shoulder blades toward each other, then lower dumbbells back down; that’s 1 rep. Do 3 sets of 20 reps.
