Bulging belly? Well, surprisingly, you might have your posture to blame. Between sitting in the car, sitting at your desk, and sitting on your couch, your slouch might be contributing to the appearance of your stomach. But, don't fret, fixing your day-to-day form can be easily done with the Archer Row.

The Archer Row strengthens your core and your back at the same time. Holding this move can help you build strength in your back and ab muscles to keep you sitting tall.

Here's how it's done:

Grab a dumbbell and get into a pushup position. With your hands under your shoulders and your body forming a straight line from your head to your heels. Separate your feet so they are slightly wider than hip-width and turn them so they both point to your left. Keeping your right palm on the floor, hold the dumbbell with your left hand and perform a row. Make sure not to let your torso rotate with the weight of the dumbbell. Once done, do the same to the other arm.

Breaking up is hard to do.
