On your quest to get an hourglass figure, you may find that in spite of your hard work, you’re not getting the results you want. Annoying, isn’t it? Have you considered the effect your body type may be having on your progress? If not, you should. Your body type and shape can affect whether or not you’re getting the most out of your body transformation journey. And if you’re a mesomorph, correcting your habits may lead to drastic improvement in results.
Mesomorph women are well proportioned all over. Equipped with strong bones, broad hips and shoulders and thick thighs, mesomorph body types store fat evenly throughout their bodies. Mesomorph body types may already be blessed with curves, but some need a little help to get an hourglass figure.
As a mesomorph, your body is beautiful, thick and muscular. You’re blessed to have a well-defined upper body, and if you’re really lucky, a tight midsection. Athletic in appearance, you body responds best to weight training.
For fast, effective weight loss and strength training, you should try powerful HIIT (high intensity interval training) exercises such as kettlebells, or at-home fitness programs like INSANITY or P90X. Strength-building programs like these transform your metabolism into a fat incinerator and build lean, toned muscle that makes you look strong yet feminine.
If you’re not blessed with a juicy butt, you’ll have to do exercises specifically tailored to help you build up your gluteal muscles. Hip thrusts and butt bridges using moderate to heavy weight loads that increase regularly are the two best exercises for helping you build a bigger butt. Also, consider buying bodybuilder Pauline Nordin’s bestselling Butt Bible Workout, which contains strength and bodybuilding exercises for women like you who want a tight, round butt.
Now as you know, for best results, every strong fitness program needs to be supported by an exceptional eating plan. As a mesomorph, you burn fat faster than your endomorph sisters, but burn fat slower than your ectomorph ones. Eating whatever you want is not part of your nutritional regimen.
Eat moderately and regularly, maxing your protein intake at no more than 30 to 40 percent of your caloric intake. Protein is important for helping you build muscles. A rule of thumb is to break down your diet as follows: 40 percent protein, 40 percent carbs and 20 percent fat. Stick to your diet 80 percent of the time, allowing no more than 20 percent deviance to indulge every once in a while.
Last but not least, if your mesomorph midsection is flat, but your waist is not as small as you’d want it to be, consider corset training. Waist training with a corset made to help you reduce inches in your love handles. As a result you can get a smaller waist – and get an hourglass figure that makes everyone stop and stare.
