Women’s bodies are different from men’s bodies, so it goes without saying that women should be doing different exercises. Before starting with your workout make sure you have comfortable women’s fitness wear.
- Side Plank
All ladies wanting to get a desirably toned midriff should be doing side planks religiously. This exercise works all those muscles responsible for the flabbiness (or the flatness) of the stomach. Side planks target the transverse abdominus and obliques. Most exercises don’t effect these muscles.
- Single-Leg Deadlift
Struggling with back pain? Try this exercise. It targets the abdominal muscles for a strong core. You’ll need a pair of dumbbells to make this exercise as effective as possible. While holding the dumbbells, stand on one foot and then lift the other foot so that your lower leg is parallel to the floor. After getting into this position, bend forward as far as possible. The further you go, the more it works those abdominal muscles. Use your glutes to come back up instead of your back.
Old, but gold. The classic pushup has endured the test of time with good reason. This exercise does something for the whole body, but it is especially good for tightening chest muscles (perky bikini body!). Everybody knows how to do a pushup, but to make it a bit more interesting try adding some weight on your back to work out your arms more.
- Second Position Plies
For supermodel legs and a perky derriere, try this ballet move. For this exercise you will need to stand with your feet apart more or less at shoulder-width. Turn your toes out and then bend your knees and go slowly down. Repeat this a few times. This move isn’t very hard, but you’ll feel the results in the tightness of your legs the next day.
