In spite of the fact that your genes cannot be changed, there are several ways of making the most of your body type so that you get good exercise and lead a meaningful and healthy life. Many fitness experts have created unique workout plans depending on people’s body types, and I have been reading about them for quite a while now.
The way most women look can be categorized depending on four major body types. Pears are said to be a bit heavier on the bottom whereas apples are slightly rounder in the middle. Boyish types are characterized by a lack of curves, although there are many ways you can correct this problem, which is why I think that having a straight body type is actually advantageous.
Finally, the last and apparently, most appealing body type looks like an hourglass. Men are supposed to enjoy this shape the most because the curves are present in the breast and bottom area, and a somewhat smaller waist is needed in order for the shape to be evident. To make matters easier, I am going to give you several examples. Pear-shaped bodies are that of Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez, for example. Oprah’s and Lindsay Lohan’s bodies resemble apples, whereas Cameron Diaz and Gwyneth Paltrow have androgynous shapes. Two other examples for hourglass body shapes are the ones of Sofia Vergara and Scarlett Johansson.
Now, let me get back to the whole point of this article. Pears have a bit of trouble getting rid of excess fat localized on their bottoms, thighs, and hips. That’s why they have to focus on these specific bodily regions. Some of the exercise women with this body type can do, are criss-cross squat jacks, plank leg sweeps, and skipping lunges. Females with apple-shaped bodies have to focus on their abdomens, which is why it might be a good idea to do some push-up climbers and rear lunge chops.
Boyish shapes have it easy, in a sense, because it’s easier to cover an androgynous body with clothes and other artifices such as a useful bra. However, I have noticed that some of the highly recommended exercises for this type include deadlift overhead presses, lunges, side-to-side blank push-ups, as well as diagonal lunges and curls.
Hourglass bodies have to work on their cardio because all they have to do is maintain their shape and keep it looking as healthy as possible. Try some squats, decline push-ups, and alternating skip-ups.
Whatever your body type, it is important to focus on establishing methods and techniques that can keep you looking and feeling as good as possible. Be sure to eat lots of veggies and enough fruit and drink plenty of water all throughout the day.
