Goddess Workouts for Every Body Type
Goddess Type 1
Your Workout Fix: These exercises will add shape to your butt, sculpt your chest, and define your arms and shoulders. Do 3 sets of 6 to 8 reps for each exercise. Since you may be naturally lean, do 30 to 45 minutes of the cardio of your choice three times a week with a focus on maintaining health more than burning calories.Weighted Squats
Works legs, butt
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, holding weights near shoulders. Squat down, bringing your thighs parallel to the floor, keeping your weight centered over your heels. Try to touch your elbows to your knees at the lowest point of the squat. Return to starting position, pushing through your heels as you stand.
Works chest, shoulders, arms
Lie faceup on a ball, bench, or step (or at home atop a large sofa cushion), holding weights with arms extended and palms forward. Bend elbows out toward sides until arms are at chest level; press back to start and repeat.
Wednesday: Walk or jog briskly outside or on a treadmill at 3.5 to 6.0 mph and 5% incline for 30 minutes; strength-train.
Thursday: Challenge yourself with your favorite cardio workout, 45 to 60 minutes.
Sunday: Walk for 30 to 45 minutes at a brisk pace (4.0 to 4.2 mph); work up to 1 hour.
