Female Body Shapes: Which Are You?
The “A Frame”
This body shape is also known as “spoon shape”. Women with “A Frame” carry some extra weight in their lower parts of their bodies. Meaning that they have extra weight in their hips, thighs and buttocks. Still, their waist and bust remain small. In case you have such body shape, you might want to work on achieving more balance between your lower and upper body. The best way to do so is to do a lot of cardio. Walking, running or using elliptical machine will help you create a perfect balance. Doing shoulder presses, pulldowns and squats is also something you can try.
The "V Frame"
This body shape is pretty much the opposite from the “A Frame”. A woman with this body shape usually has shoulders which are around 2 or more inches wider then her hips. If you have the “V frame” body shape you probably have wide shoulders, narrow hips and thin legs. Again, the perfection can be met by balancing upper and lower part of your body. In this case you will want to avoid elliptical machine as it can lean your legs up. Instead, you should focus on some other leg exercises such as squats, leg presses and stiff deadlifts.
The “H Frame”
The “H Frame” refers to women with athletic bodies. Women with this body shape tend to have large waist and shoulders, still they can lack symmetry. The “H Frame” is considered to be quite squared off and blocky. The best way to achieving the symmetry is by reducing your waist size. Using treadmill or stepper for cardio is a great way to do this. You will also need a proper lower body training in order to achieve this, so you can consider doing squats, extensions and lunges.
The "Oval Frame"
This frame is also known as “The Apple”. Women with this body shape are usually average height or shorter and tend to get the most weight in their midsection. They also have thin leg, which only makes midsection even larger. In this case, you should focus on cardio as much as possible. Basically any workout that will help you burn excessive fat will suit you. Jogging and exercising on stepper are recommended. Still, getting rid of the fat at your midsection can be very difficult. Opting for tumescent liposculpture is a great way to get rid of the fat quickly. This will help you balance your midsection with the other parts of your body.
Make sure you find out which body shape you are and try to work on improving it even more. It is important to stay focus and set your goals clearly.
