The Right Plan for Your Fitness Level

Q&A: "I'm heavier on bottom and narrower on top. What workout will help me look more balanced?"

In addition to the exercises here, focus on shaping your shoulders and upper back with strength moves like the lat pulldown, front and lateral shoulder raises and dumbbell rows, says celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak. Also try doing waist-cinching ab moves, such as trunk twists and "U" crunches, as well as 20 to 30 minutes of cardio three to five times a week to burn excess fat.
