Some people are not naturally blessed with having a curvy physique. For those of us that weren’t born with a J.Lo or Beyonce figure, there are several ways to work with what you have to achieve your own voluptuous bod.
Resistance Band Kickbacks: Want a round ample bottom? Start by adding kickbacks with a resistance band to your workout routine. While on all fours loop your resistance band around your right foot keeping the ends secure in your hands. Kick your leg back, going no higher than hip height, with a firm grip on the bands at the same time. Repeat for 3 sets of 8, switch and mimic the same action on the other side.
V Position: Similar to a plie in ballet, stand with the heels of your feet touching. Your toes are pointed outward with one hand on a chair or ballet bar for support. Slowly lower your body while keeping your heels pressed together. Hold for 30 seconds, for an additional challenge begin pulsing for 10-15 seconds once you have gone as low as you can go. Repeat this action for 3 sets. This move targets your hips, glutes and thighs.
Thigh Master: Utilizing steps outside or in your home, stand on one step keeping the other leg dangling. Place your hands on your hips, alternate by extending the dangling leg to the side for 3-5 pulses. For the second move you want slightly bend the standing leg lowering the dangling leg to the lower step and tap. The completion of both moves completes one rep. Perform for 30-60 seconds on each side.
