We all love workouts, and keeping ourselves fit, is the topmost priority for most of us these days. Without research or consulting experts we tend to hit gym and do whatever workout we can do. We also start exercising in our home without any expert advice or suggestions. And we are all aware of the exercises which can harm our body. So, it’s best not to get indulged in such types of exercises. Know your body and research about the exercise fully before starting. Have you ever heard of different workouts as per the body type?? Let’s have a look at different types of workout for different body types;
1. Pear Shaped:
These women have more weight in the lower body section. They have fat in thighs, calves and butt area. And for them the problem areas are the lower body.
Workout: Try to go for leg exercises. Involve yourself in exercises like cycling, jumping, skipping and even running on treadmill. You can even do squats with or without weights.
2. Apple Shaped:
Apple shaped women,have more weight on the upper body and also in the mid section of the body. So, you need to reduce and tone the chest and upper body area.
