Exercise. The word that can be the bane of human existence or the only way we get moving and find motivation for the day. Whatever exercise means to you, we should be getting exercise of some kind. We all know that it is good for us but it is sometimes easier said than done. Walking into the gym and not knowing what exercises to do or how some equipment works is why we lack motivation to put in the work at times.

Our body types can have an effect on what exercises we should be doing. It is also different between men and women. Here are a few exercises you can do for each body type and a better description of each body type, specifically for women.

  • Apple
    This type is described as a person with broader shoulders and bust than hips. Apple shaped women should work on mixing cardio and waist-defining strength moves. HIIT interval training could be a great combination of both.
    You want to sculpt your middle. Bird dogs, rear lunge chops, pushup climbers, and other exercises that work your middle are great exercises. This can take time and belly fat can be stubborn. As long as you work hard and keep up with exercises, you will watch the fat melt away.
  • Boyish
    Another body type is described as having a straight and thin frame. These body types usually do not have curves and want them. If you have this body type, you will want to work on strength building workouts that help give you body definition.
    Some exercises to try are deadlift overhead presses, lunges, side-to-side plank pushups, and lunges with bicep curls. If you want to challenge yourself, increase your weight over time.
  • Pear
    This shape is for someone who has hip measurements greater than their bust measurements. Balance is key here. Women who are pear shaped tend to focus on their legs lower half and neglect their upper half. However, you don’t want to lose your body’s balance. Plyometrics and total body strength training are best here. These will help show off your curves and maintain your body’s balance.
    You can try different types of lunges, squats, and jumping jacks. To add difficulty, you can add weight to each of these and also jump in between each squat or lunge. This will add resistance and burn fat.
  • Hourglass
    This type is described as a person with whips and bust measurements being almost equal in size but the waist is narrower. This type is full of curves and has trouble areas in thighs, upper arms, and stomach areas.
    For this body type, total body sculpting and cardio are the best ways to go. Step up squats with shoulder presses, rear lunge row taps, decline pushups, skip-ups, tricep dips, and single leg bridges with presses are all great places to start.

Working out can be difficult when you are just getting started. Sometimes doing a little research can go a long way when trying to figure out what is best for you. Knowing your body type can help get you started at the very least. This can allow you to start exercising and getting into the best shape of your life.
