Road to Curvature

Posted on April 9, 2020 | No Comments on Road to Curvature

A “coca-cola body” is what most women want to have. Those wide hips and well-defined curves are said to be the defining characteristics sought after by women on a regular basis. While there are those who don’t have to worry because they were graced with good genetics, particularly having wide hips, a large portion of the female population is on the problematic side of traversing the road to curvature.

It may be a long road to take, but patiently achieving several exercise steps that target your curves can get you there. Through these tips, you may also target your chest, shoulders, butt, thighs, and hips. So what are you waiting for? Start working your way.

Step 1:
According to Kevin Rail, a certified personal trainer, wellness coach, and motivational engineer, broadening the deltoids, the main shoulder muscles, “will help set off upper body curves.” Overhead presses and lateral raises will do this.

To do overhead presses, sit on a chair as you hold dumbbells above your shoulders with palms forward. Push the weights above your head as you keep your core tight, then slowly lower the weights and repeat. For lateral raises, stand straight with your feet together and hold dumbbells at your sides with palms facing in. Gradually raise the weights up to your sides until your arms are parallel to the floor, slowly lower them, and repeat.

Step 2:
To give your stomach appeal and to work out the curves in your hips and thighs, do these exercises that will tighten your midsection.

First is bicycle crunches. On a clean floor, lie on your back placing your hands behind your head. Lift your legs and bend your knees. In a steady motion, move your opposite knee and elbow toward each other alternately while extending one leg out straight. Repeat for as long as you can.

Second, the V-ups. Just like the former exercise, you must lay on your back as you stretch out your arms behind your head. Keep your legs straight. Then, progressively raise your arms and legs toward each other and try to touch your toes—balancing on your butt for a second (try to hold that pose for about 5-7 seconds). Then, lower yourself back down and repeat.

Step 3:
Rail says there are workouts that can develop curves in your butt: the sumo squats and prone leg lifts.

Implied by its name, sumo squats will have you sit on your heels as you hold dumbbells in between your thighs. Slowly lower yourself down as you bend your knees and stand back up. Repeat.

With an exercise ball, do prone leg lifts. Lie on the floor facing down. Place your lower shins on top of the ball and place your hands shoulder-width apart. Gradually push your body up until your back is straight then hold that position as you alternately lift each leg in the air as high as possible. Rail notes that “every time you do this, contract your glutes forcefully.”

Step 4:
“The final component of your curves is your calf muscles,” Rail explains. These are found on the back of the lower legs. He says calf raises, with the help of an aerobic step and a set of dumbbells, is the ideal exercise to work these muscles.

While holding the dumbbells at your side, place the balls of your feet on the step and lift up onto your tip toes. As you do this, forcefully squeeze your calf muscles for force. Then, leisurely lower your heels toward the ground, hold for a full second and repeat.

The road to curvature may not be as easy as it seems. There are no shortcuts.

But, if you really work your way to it, with great persistence and hard work, you will certainly enjoy the benefits.
