Female Body Types Workouts & Fitness Tips

The key to getting the body YOU desire from your workouts is one very important thing that I cover in detail in all my ebooks: workouts customized to the 4 female body types. 

Customizing also known as adapting or modifying something to your unique body type and needs is what clients pay personal trainers and top fitness experts thousands of dollars to do for them but the truth is you don't need a fancy $70 an hour trainer (or $100-$200 per hour celebrity trainer) if you're willing to learn how to do it yourself.

Check out the video here for examples of two customized fat burning workouts.  The first one is a better fit for cones and rulers who have trouble maintaining a round shaped booty and curvy toned figure.  It includes a variety of lunging and squatting type movements that burn the fat off the upper body without flattening the butt.  

The second type of workout is a better fit for pyramids and hourglass types and includes plenty of fat burning exercises too but none of them really target the booty or legs so if you are happy with your bottom half and just want to get rid of the excess layers of fat this type of workout is going to get you the fatloss without the bulk that so many women fear.

body types H & V workout:  You can either do 8 rounds of intervals like I'm doing in the video or perform each exercise back to back without rest for a rep range that is right for your body type and goals.  Higher reps for building lean muscle or lower reps for maintaining lean muscle.  Then repeat 4-5 times. 

body types A & X workout:  You can either do 8 rounds of intervals like I'm doing in the video or perform each exercise back to back without rest for a rep range that is right for your body type and goals.  Higher reps for building lean muscle or lower reps for maintaining lean muscle.  Then repeat 4-5 times.
