Not everyone has the same body type. You need to tailor your workout based on your physique. It helps to perform exercises based on your body type to get the most of your workout. We spoke to fitness expert Roshni Shah to assist us with a strength training workout plan for different body types.
Pear-shaped body type
You have a pear shaped body if you are a bit wider at the bottom. To even out a heavier lower body, your goal should be to focus on lower body while building upper body strength.
Do 1 set of 15 repetitions of each exercise back to back.
Apple-shaped body type
If you carry a lot of weight around your midsection, you have an apple-shaped body. As you know spot reduction does not work, the best way to lose fat around your middle is to burn fat from your entire body.
Perform three sets of 10 repetitions of each of these exercises with little or no rest between them.
Banana-shaped body type
Many identify the banana body type as having an athletic frame where you have broad shoulders and narrow hips. However, with strength training, you will be able to add curves to your frame. You need to focus on compound lower body exercises to add definition to your straight figure.
Perform three sets of 12 repetitions resting 45 to 60 seconds between each set.
Curvy body type
A smaller waist and hips are what create an hourglass figure. But a lot of people tend to add weight around these areas. Strength training will help define your muscles and target the major muscle groups like your arms, legs, abdomen, hips, shoulders, back and chest helping you maintain your ideal.
Begin with one set of 10 to 15 repetitions and then add more sets as you get strong.
