How to Get a Nice, Curvy Toned Body
I want a body like this of Vanessa Hudgens
I am a 16 year old girl, 5 feet 5 inches, and 125 lbs. My measurements currently are 34-26-35. I don't look that proportionate. Like I kind of look straight up, straight down. I have some kind of curve but it's not that noticeable. I want to be able to get a nice, toned body that has curves.
Like a tight waist and nice flat abs and curvy hips. I want my curves to be noticeable. I also want lean, muscular legs.
What do I have to do to get this while at home? Is that possible?
Vow! The body you dream for definitely is "out of this world"!
Your concern is because your body shape is not "proportionate", "straight up, straight down" with no noticeable curves.
What I want to say is that how curvy and shapely your body is depends quite a lot on your body shape, whether it's ectomorph, endomorph or mesomorph.
I gather from your own description of your body shape you're more likely a ectomorph. Well, many people will envy you for having this body shape because you tend to be slim and not easy to put on weight. The only disadvantage is the "straightness" of the shape with no beautiful, sensual curves.
Don't worry! A proper exercise routine that targets at these so-called "troubled spots" will help you chisel curves in all the right places and gives you a total body makeover.
Here's my suggested exercise program for you which you might want to try out:
1. Do cardio exercise (e.g. running, walking, dancing, swimming, biking, jogging.....) to keep off unwanted excess fat in your body,if any.
If you don't have this "fat" problem, well congratulation! But still, a round of cardio exercise 3-4 times per week for say 30 minutes will help you maintain your weight plus keep your heart and lungs in good shape.
2. Do a whole body toning program like the one featured here , to not only strengthen all your major muscle groups all at one go in one exercise session but also build beautiful, compact and tight lean muscle mass that gives rise to "curves", definitions and shapes to all your muscles due to the strength, compactness and tightness of the lean muscle mass.
Workout 3-4 times per week for say 20 - 30 minutes per session.
3. Do stretching exercise
which promotes flexibility and agility in your muscles and joints and also provides a "leaner and longer stance" to your muscles, so you give people the impression that you look slimmer and "taller".
Stretch for 10 minutes or so after each session of the whole body toning workout.
You can do these 3 exercises at the comfort of your home except may be the cardio exercise which you might want to do it outdoor.
For example, running, walking, swimming, jogging are outdoor activities. However, you can still do them indoor on a treadmill (walking, running and jogging) or on a stationary bike (for biking). But nothing beats doing them in the open space where air is fresher (compare to indoor air) and the surrounding is more interesting. What say you?
I would like to say that consistency and regularity in doing these 3 exercises are a must, to get satisfying results.
You should give your body sufficient time to get acclimatized to the exercise load you put on it. In about 6-8 weeks, your body will begin to take on a more compact, leaner and slimmer form with more curves.
As for your diet, I guess you don't have much problem there due to the nature of your body shape which doesn't accumulate fat that easily.
However, for all-rounded health and well-being, I encourage you to eat a well-balanced, healthy and nutritious diet, to build up your body frame since you're a teen girl and hence still at the growing stage. If you get sufficient nutrients from the food you eat, you will be able to carve out an even more beautiful body.
