The Best Workout for an Apple-Shaped Body

Typical trouble zones: belly, waistline

Solution: Core-centric sculpting and high-intensity interval (HIIT) cardio

Cardio seems to be the No. 1 way to exercise off belly fat (one 2011 Duke University study found that aerobic exercise helped subjects shed significantly more visceral (belly) and liver fat than resistance training alone), but that doesn't mean apple shapes should totally toss strength training out the window. This plan combines high-intensity cardio to torch fat and effective strength moves to help you develop tight muscles all around your waistline for a one-two punch to that pooch!

How it works: Three or four days per week, do 1 set of each exercise back to back, with little to no rest in between. Do the full circuit 3 times total. Alternate this routine with two days of high-intensity cardio intervals.
