Stubborn jiggles? Sad about sagging? Learn to target the area of your body that stubbornly resists your exercise and dieting efforts.
Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
You most likely have the most trouble with your waistline. Love is great, but when your love handles have widened, it’s time to do more than expand your belt! Make a plan to devote yourself to ten minutes a day of core work in addition to your usual routine. From planks to crunches to pilates moves that focus on your abs, amping up the effort to strengthen your center every day of the week will result in a fine-tuned waistline before the spring.
Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
As Earth Signs, you’re very well-grounded – and that sometimes means that your hips are more well-rounded than you’d like! Cardio is key for attaining your goal, combined with moves such as walking lunges and squats. You may also want to re-evaluate your diet. Simple changes such as shifting from cream in your coffee to low-fat milk can add up to significant weight loss within just a few months.
Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
When it comes to Air Signs, it’s important to improve your upper body strength. Go ahead and groan, but old-fashioned push-ups really do work. You will also benefit from starting a regular weight-lifting and/or strengthening program, ranging from targeting your triceps to biceps to forearms. Consider investing in a personal trainer for a few sessions to help you work out the right health program for your needs.
Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Water elements tend to overemphasize one area, such as their legs. For you, the key is to focus on overall toning and strengthening and that will bring targeted results, too. You might want to sign up for a class in body conditioning that will allow you to incorporate every body part into your fitness routine. And don’t forget the cardio. Whether it’s walking, biking, running, dancing, or swimming, cardio will help you look and feel better in the shortest amount of time!
