Your Health Online | Good Shape No Matter What Age

Picture this: you and one of your friends are both the same height and eat pretty much the same types of food and the same amount. And yet, she’s got the body you’ve always wanted while you’re wincing every time you cross a mirror. You can’t help but wonder what the heck is wrong with you. You’re pretty much disciplined, but somehow, it gets harder to have that perfect body as years pass. Well, it’s not you, it’s your genes. Blame it on the DNA you have in you.

Every woman is defined by the tape measure. A woman’s body shape depends on the type of fat she carries most. And all fat isn’t created equal. An apple-shaped woman can never have a pear shape. You really can’t change your basic shape but work to tone it so that you can look your best. To lose weight and inches effectively, you need to exercise based on your shape. You need to make the most of what you have and quit complaining.

If you have the hourglass shape, count yourself lucky. Hourglasses have well-proportioned bodies, with a distinctively narrow waste. You tend to gain weight all over your body, particularly in the hip and chest area. The problem now is with the unwanted inches rather than the weight, so women with this kind of shape cannot rely on dieting alone. Instead, they should focus on both cardio and resistance exercises. They must vary their repetitions and keep resistance weights light to avoid building too much muscle mass. You could actually try slow jogging, stationary biking, swimming, bicep curls, shoulder presses, push-ups, squats, and fast walking with little to no incline. Avoid high impact activities at all costs and take comfort in the fact that people with this shape tend to lose and gain evenly, and quickly, too. You’re also less susceptible to osteoporosis and other back problems.

Pears, on the other hand, are commonly viewed as bottom-heavy. They tend to have larger lower bodies, a slim torso, and a well-defined waste. They tend to gain weight below the waste and often have cellulite below the thighs. They also look heavier than their actual scale weight. Due to the disparity between their upper and lower bodies, the changes become evidently. The key is to perform light-resistance aerobic exercise combined with loads of calisthenics. To thin down the lower half, concentrate on aerobic activities that work out the lower body and resistance exercises to build the upper body. Women with this type are also less likely to suffer from strokes, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

The polar opposite of a pear is the cone. They carry a lot of weight and mass in their upper back and chest. Their arms are usually large as well and they have excess fat, especially in the back of the arms and stomach. They often look misshaped because of that extra weight concentrated on top. You can benefit from abundant aerobic exercise combined with abdominal and upper-body endurance exercises. Slow walking on an incline also works best.
