Are you guilty of looking in some of the magazines and wishing that you had the same body as some of the fitness models? Do you often think that they must have something special that you don’t? Everybody is human. And if you are human, you have the power to condition your body to be exactly the way you want it to be. You can look just as good (or even better) than the fitness models that appear in magazines and on television shows, if you want to. So stop making excuses and take action with the following exercise tips.
Keep the percentage of your body fat low.
The thing that will improve your look is how conditioned your body is. The best way to condition your body is by doing cardiovascular training. This means you need to do fat burning exercises for 30 to 60 minutes a day. In 8-12 weeks, you can transform your body to look more trim and radiant.
Women only need a body fat percentage between 10-20% to look good. However, the only way to achieve this is by doing cardiovascular exercises.
Doing cardio isn’t always the most fun exercise, however you can engage in the following activities to make it feel more effortless. These include participating in:
- Dance classes
- Spin classes
- Aerobics classes
- Sports activities (Such as netball, tennis or squash)
In order to keep your body fat low, you need to do enough cardiovascular exercises to maintain a calorie deficit.
Improve the shape of your butt.
One of the best physical assets a woman can display is the shape of her bottom. Whether you want to flaunt it in a bikini or to discreetly show off the curves in an evening dress, enhancing the shape of your bottom will improve your physical look and sex appeal.
To lift and tone your bum, you need to do conditioning and resistance exercises that incorporates your glutes (which is your bum). The movement that you need to do is a pressing movement.
To add more resistance to the exercise, you can invest in weight sets such as dumbbells and barbells.
Shaping your bum and legs with power exercises.
Power exercises such as plyometrics are a great for shaping your legs and bum. There are intensive exercises which put a lot of impact on the body, however the results from doing these exercises can be phenomenal. Plyometrics requires explosive movements such as skipping, bounding, hopping and jumping. Because the exercises are repetitive, it requires more exertion from the muscle. Some effective exercises include:
- Box jumps
- Hurdle hops
- Frog jumps
All of these exercises incorporate the glutes. Usually, repetitions of 10 or more are done to condition the muscle.
Variations of these exercises can be done with weights as well. These power exercises include:
- Power cleans
- Clean and jerk
- Push press
Tone up your arms without worrying about looking too muscly.
One of the major concerns most women have about lifting weights is that they will appear too muscular and start to look like man. This can only occur if the lady does heavy resistance weights and repetitions that will breakdown the muscle tissue and force new muscle to grow.
Without doing any form of resistance weights, your muscles will look skinny, flappy and loose. Rather than risk having arms that look like a turkey’s neck, you can use light weights to do repetitions of 15 to 30 which should define your arms nicely, without adding much muscle.
Test your limits.
If you want to get an incredible body, you have to go to incredible feats to get it. Genetics will have a big influence on the look that you can achieve, however you can achieve the perfect body for you. It’s important to understand your body type and what exercises your body will naturally respond to. Once you know, you need to push your body beyond failure so you will break through your exercise plateaus and start seeing the results that you really want.
