The 4 Women’s Workout for an Hourglass Figure
SINGLE LEG PUSHUP
Start in the standard pushup position: Begin on all fours, and place your hands on the floor slightly wider than and in line with your shoulders. Reach feet out to the back, so that they are slightly wider than hip-width apart, knees lifted off the ground. Your body should form a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders. Raise one foot off the floor. Lower your body toward the floor and then press back up, keeping your leg off the floor the entire time. “Squeeze the butt cheek and quad of the lifted leg so that it’s locked very straight. You’ll still be working it hard, even if it’s just a few inches off the ground,” she notes.
DUMBBELL OVERHEAD PRESS
Grab a pair of dumbbells and hold them just outside your shoulders with your palms facing each other. Press the weight over-head until your arms are completely straight. Pause, then slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position.
