We come in all shapes and sizes and no two bodies are exactly alike – where fat tends to accumulate contributes to our resulting body shape. Apple-shaped ladies, for instance, gain weight easily at their waistlines, while those who are pear-shaped are likely to store fat on their hips and thighs.
And just like how you’d tailor your skincare regime to your skin concerns, we can (and should) customise our workouts according to our body shape.
For that, we got Chung Tze Khit, managing director of Gold’s Gym Singapore & master trainer for National Council on Strength and Fitness, to recommend effective exercises to tone and tighten common trouble zones of each body shape.
(Psst, these strength-training moves can be done using just your bodyweight, a pair of dumbbells or any household object such as filled water bottles and canned goods. Easy peasy!)
