Ruler Shape

They are the thin, frail women who don't need to exercise. They are as straight as a ruler with little or absolutely no curves at all. There is no difference between the waist, chest and hip size. They should eat a lot of proteins, a lot of calcium and complex carbohydrates. Such body types need not bother much about their weight.

Ideally, they should do simple stretches, sit-ups, crunches, squats or basic yoga to keep themselves fit.

Knowing what will work for your body shape is perhaps the first and most significant step to take before you adopt a fitness regime. After all, a workout well begun is almost half the battle won !

Interesting item. Should have more discussion on so called Indian Diet. Cabohydrate rich diet is responsible for the body shape.

..."Most Indians tend to have an apple shaped body, because of their wrong diet which is mostly fried and sugary stuff.. They have a huge, bulging tummy, and a heavy frame."..... what is wrong with the indian diet?? 'fried and sugary stuffs' are just part of the amazing plethora of indian cuisine. now what u chose from this wide range of food possibly decides your body shape.the indian diet must not take the blame for laziness and indifference. huger bulging tummies and much heavier frames are seen world wide. so instead of prototyping, focus on facts to create awareness!!
