What’s Your Body Type? – Pt 1: Athletic


Do you have an athletic build like Serena Williams?

If so, then you probably have broad shoulders and narrow hips. Tighten your core, and add some shape to your butt and thighs with this athletic-body-type workout. Athletic builds are often short-waisted (and maybe a little thick-waisted), tend to have square silhouettes, and will have a lower ratio of fat to muscle than curvy or pear-shaped body types. Athletic women don’t generally need too much toning. Tummy-tightening core moves, along with lower-body exercises that shape the glutes and thighs, are the perfect complement to this already strong build.

At-Home Workout:

side lung

Stand with your feet about hip-width apart, holding dumbbells down at your sides. Take a giant step to the right, dropping your butt back (keeping your knee from extending over your toes) and straighten your arms to place the weights in front of you. Press back to start. Then immediately repeat the move to the left.

10 to 12 reps per side

1 banana
1 piece of string cheese
