A woman with an hourglass figure has weight on the upper body and the lower body as well with a narrow waist. Women who desire to have this kind of figure need not necessarily go under the knife, but can be a little careful with their diet and workouts. An hourglass figure should include cardiovascular exercises that will help you lose fat on the belly and love handles around the waist area, because in an hourglass figure the main emphasis is the narrow waist.
Cardiovascular exercises include aerobics, cycling, swimming, skipping, brisk walking, jogging, running, oblique crunches, sit-ups along with weight training and stretches. Some fitness experts are of the opinion that yoga, especially Kundalini yoga is the best way toget an hourglass figure.
Deanne adds, “People with an hourglass figure have to work really hard to maintain it. They should be careful with their diet in the sense they should avoid sugary stuff and eat more of proteins, green vegetables, nuts and eggs.
