Getting leaner and healthier, no matter what nickname you give your body shape, means figuring out where you store fat and how quickly you build muscle, explains Kimberly Spreen, fitness director for Life Time Fitness health clubs in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. To use her plan, based on four basic body types, find your shape on the next page. Do the six base moves, plus two additional customized exercises, then follow the weekly plan designed just for your shape. Do the given number of sets and reps along with the recommended cardio program. In just four weeks, you'll start to lose flab and build definition where you need to most.
First, find the Goddess Type to match your shape and workout goals.
