The Body (women)

       I get many messages,
where women describe to me their ideal body and it seems to be the exact same
shape; “hour glass” frame (small waist, maintain their chest and create or
maintain a bigger lower body) I wanted to write about it , because if I didn’t I
was soon going to find myself re-writing the same exact email!



        Diet is the
key
to the toned abs (small waist). Yes, you should do ab workouts to tone the
muscle but everyone absolutely EVERYONE has a six pack it’s part of our
anatomical muscular structure, it is just hidden underneath layers of fat. After
the hundreds of crunches you will have an amazing set of six pack abs, BUT they
will be underneath layers of fat. Therefore, in order to have this show you
need to reduce your body fat, by having a consistent healthy diet and
increasing or beginning cardio. However it’s mostly has to do with your diet,
hence the quote “Abs are made in the Kitchen”. Remember the 75/25 or 80/20 rule
of diet vs. exercise. The issue that some woman have with this, is that they
not only lose the extra fat on their bellies, but they also begin to reduce fat
in the buttocks and thighs (something many of you who sent me these emails want
to keep)



         The problem
here is “spot reduction” you cannot pick an area of the body in which you‘d
like to tone or decrease, simply because the body does not work that way. Your
body converts fat into fuel for energy but it collects this from multiple areas
of the body not just one. In some cases you may lose the buttocks and thighs
before you lose all of the fat over your stomach.  It’s just a process, I went through the same. 



          The trick
is, that after losing, rebuild. Incorporate heavy leg workouts to build muscle
and create a bigger lower body.

To name a
few exercises:

·       Leg press

·       Dead lifts

·       Weighted Squats

·       Hamstring curls

·       Leg curls

·       Box jumps

·       One legged squats

·       Stair master

       I know that
it may sound like a bit more work then what you expected but after losing and
then rebuilding you will end up with a more lifted, toned bum, and if you do it
right, a reduced or cellulite free one!

everyone is shaped differently, not everyone has the same body type. The three
different body types are mesomorphs, ectomorphs and endomorphs.

Mesomorphs:
·        
 Athletic
·        
Hard body with well defined muscles
·        
Rectangular shaped body
·        
Strong
·        
Gains muscle easily
·        
Gains fat more easily than
ectomorphs
 

Ectomorphs:
·        
 Small “delicate” frame and bone structure
·        
Classic “hardgainer”
·        
Flat chest
·        
Small shoulders
·        
Thin
·        
Lean muscle mass
·        
Finds it hard to gain weight
·        
Fast metabolism
 

       Endomorphs:
·        
Soft and round body
·        
Gains muscle and fat very easily
·        
Is generally short and “stocky”
·        
Round physique
·        
Finds it hard to lose fat
·        
Slow metabolism

 All of which will determine the results you get and how you
are shaped.
 

        However what
is most important is that you’re living a healthy lifestyle. “Beauty is in the
eye of the beholder”
and what matters most is that you love yourself. Until Next time!
