The Best Workout for a Pear-Shaped Body

Typical trouble zones: hips, thighs

Solution: Lower-body focused, power moves, total-body strength training, and endurance cardio

To help even out a heavier lower half, you'll want to create a stronger, more defined upper body to balance out your shape. This plan combines cardio and strength into one circuit workout designed to help you burn more calories (so long, saddlebags!) and develop metabolically active lean muscle mass at the same time.

How it works: Three or four days a week, do 1 set of each exercise back-to-back, with little to no rest in between moves .Do the full circuit 3 times total, resting 45 to 60 seconds between rounds. Combine this routine with up to three 30- to 45-minute cardio sessions per week.
You will need: Free weights
