Ideal Exercises For Your Body Type
Exercising will give you the results you expect only when you adjust your training to the specific shape of your body. In this article, we will give you the four most common body types, and once you determine which part of your body needs the most attention, you will be able to choose the right exercise for your shape.
If you have a pear-shaped body that means that you belong to the group of beauties such as Jennifer Lopez, Alisha Keys, and Jennifer Love Hewitt among many others. The upper part of the body is significantly thinner in comparison to the lower one in those who have a pear-shaped body.
Hips and thighs are the central part of this body type, therefore it’s no surprise that women want to make them thinner and tighter. However, you shouldn’t forget the upper part of your body and it is highly recommended that you do exercises for the strengthening of your arms and shoulders as much as you do exercises for your hips and thighs.
The best types of activities for this body type are walking, running, and riding a bicycle for at least 45 minutes a day 5 times per week. By doing these activities you won’t put too much pressure on your knees, ankles, and hips. When it comes to the strengthening of your arm and shoulder muscles, it is recommended that you start exercising with lighter weight, and gradually begin to exercise with heavier weight.
This is the body shape of Cameron Diaz and Gwyneth Paltrow. They can wear anything, but unfortunately, they lack feminine curves. The main characteristic of this body type is that the bust and shoulders are about the same width as the hip-line and the waist.
In case of weight gain, the most problematic part is the stomach. Therefore, if you have this body type you should really try to tighten your stomach muscles, in other words, you should try to eliminate the fatty tissues in this area. By doing this, you’ll accentuate your waist by far. Besides this, you should try to increase the muscle weight of your buttocks by doing exercises that target that part of the body. Squats and stair climbing are great for this body type.
However, you shouldn’t neglect the other parts of your body and it is best that you activate the whole body by walking, riding a bicycle, walking uphill, or running.
This is considered the ideal body shape. These women have tiny waists and proportional sizes of their shoulders to their hips. Beyonce, Scarlett Johansson, and Halle Berry are just some of the beauties in this group.
The weight is evenly distributed in these women. They need to do some exercises for tightening, and they are at a higher risk of getting excess fat on their thighs and upper arms.
Cardio and tightening exercises are perfect for women with this body shape. Zumba, swimming, and riding a bicycle are the best choices. If you want to tighten your body and build some muscle mass, it’s important to strengthen your upper back.
Jessica Biel has this body shape. It is characterized by narrow hips and wide shoulders. These women typically have a hard time finding a 2-piece swimsuit to fit them, because usually one part of the swimsuit is good, and the other is either too big or too small.
Women with athletic shapes should focus on tightening their stomach muscles and shaping their thighs and buttocks. And due to their typically strong immune systems, these women can build muscles and burn fat more easily.
These women should do exercises that do not require much strength and repetition, such as riding a bicycle, running and other similar exercises.
