8 Exercises For Women to Get That Fit And Feminine Body You Wanted To Brag About
If you have always desired a gorgeous feminine body like Adriana Lima’s or Jennifer Aniston, then you aren’t interested in having the physique of a bodybuilder but a more lean and toned figure along with a thin waistline. Luckily there are exercises specifically meant for achieving this type of figure where your body will be fit as well as feminine.
Here are 8 key exercises for girls looking to find the right balance between looking feminine while getting some lean gains to achieve the perfect body. These exercises can even be done at home, so you don’t exactly have to join a gym.
1Crunches with twists
When you add twists to crunches it becomes more of a core strengthening exercise which targets mainly the obliques. These crunches are commonly known as Russian twists. You can even include a lightweight in this workout.
How to do these
Lie down on the floor and keep your feet placed on the ground or you can raise them to a certain level of the ground and hold them there. Keep your knees slightly bent and raise your upper body a bit to form a V-shape. Your arms should be in front and perpendicular to your torso. Start twisting your torso to the right side and then to left or first to the left and then to right, for at least 30 seconds. You can lie back down and rest after doing it for 30 seconds or 1 minute.
2Crunch chops with a light weight
Using weights not only helps in improving your abs, hips, glutes, and upper back muscles, but also is a great way of gaining more strength.
Take a light dumbbell and lie down on the ground with it in your grasp and extend your arms above your head. Raise your legs straight up in the air making a 90-degree angle with your hips and torso. This will be your starting position from which, begin to crunch upward while straddling your legs. Holding the dumbbell firmly, throw your arms through your legs and pause there for 2 seconds before returning back to your starting position. Keep repeating these crunches for 1 minute.
3Single-leg bridge chest press with light weight
A single-leg bridge along with some light ways is great way to tone and shape your shoulders and glutes. Without any weights, this exercise would be more glutes oriented but with the addition of weights, your shoulders manage to also get a good workout.
How to do these
Grab two light dumbbells and lie down on your back with them. Extend your arms over your chest and slowly start raising one leg off the ground and then extend your hands in the air. Now, begin lifting your hip upwards while keeping the heel of your other (which is not raised up) and shoulder blades fixed to the ground. Once you complete this return back to your starting position and repeat it for as many reps and sets as you can. Don’t forget to change the leg and repeat the same on the other side. You can also choose to alternate between legs while doing it in a set.
