Not every body’s created equal. Before you start your training and nutrition regimen, it’s a good idea to figure out your body type. Knowing which of the three basic body types you’re closest to will help you better tailor your diet and exercise plan and set realistic, attainable goals that pave the way to your success.
While you cannot change your genes, you can always plan your workout according to your body type to make sure that you lose weight the right way.
Pear: Pear-shaped women are usually heavier on the bottom than on the top and carry excess weight on their hips, waist and thighs. You must focus on power moves, total body strength training and endurance cardio. Create a stronger, more defined upper body to balance out your shape. You can combine strength and cardio training which will help you burn more calories. Make sure to divide the days well.
Apple: Apple-shaped women are rounder in the middle and have a thicker waist, especially in comparison to their shoulders and hips. To enhance your workout, mix fat-blasting cardio and waist-defining strength moves to burn more fat.
Androgynous: Women who have an androgynous body type are often referred to as the ‘string bean’ and lack curves. You must do the strength building workout to help improve your body composition and add definition to your straight figure. Though you don’t have to focus on burning calories, it’s good to improve your overall stamina, endurance and health.
Hourglass: Women with an hourglass figure are both curvy on the top as well as the bottom and with smaller appearing waists. Incorporate a high step, strength training and lots of cardio in your everyday workout routine.
