Goddess Workouts for Every Body Type
Goddess Type 3
Your Workout Fix: Use heavier weights and fewer (6 to 8) reps for your upper-body moves to build muscle and create symmetry with your lower half; stick with lighter weights and higher (12 to 15) reps to sculpt lean muscle in your lower-body trouble zones. Do 3 sets for each exercise. In addition, do cardio about 5 times a week to blast excess lower body fat; choose activities like kickboxing and rowing that burn calories while building upper-body endurance.Lateral Raise
Stand with feet hip-width apart, holding weights with palms facing each other. Lift arms out to sides to shoulder height, keeping slight bend in elbow and pinkies higher than thumbs. Lower and repeat.
Works legs, butt, back
Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms at sides. Step out to left side with left foot and squat down, keeping body weight over heels. Bring right foot to meet left (not shown). Now lunge behind you with left foot, hinging forward from waist to touch right ankle or top of foot with both hands. Return to start and repeat on opposite side.
