What’s Your Body Type? (Women)

Celebrity Body Types

This week we’ll be starting a new series titled, “What’s Your Body Type?” Included in this series will be a description of the attributes from each body shape accompanied by at-home workout and eating plan examples that will help you along the journey of transforming your dream body into your reality! We will cover rectangle, athletic, hourglass, pear and the apple body shapes.

Today, the first body type we will explore is referred to as, “rectangle” or “straight.”

Rectangle-Body-Type

Don’t look at your lack of curves in a negative light…you can wear nearly anything! When women with ruler-straight body types, like Cameron Diaz, gain weight, it usually forms a little potbelly, and they have a hard time getting muscle tone. To add some curves to your figure, focus on tightening your core!

At-Home Workout:
