Best Workout For "PEAR" Shape Body Type

  • You're a bit wider on the bottom than you are on top. Tone your arms and shoulders, and get tighter all over with our pear-friendly workout.
    You're a bit wider on the bottom than you are on top. Tone your arms and shoulders, and get tighter all over with our pear-friendly workout.
  • The shape: Pears populate the roster of bombshell beauties, from Alicia Keys to Jennifer Love Hewitt. As the name of this body type implies, pears are proportionally smaller on top, easily pack weight onto their lower bodies, and have a hard time toning their arms and shoulders.

    The Rx: A pear often becomes obsessed with whittling down her lower body by doing dozens of lunges and leg lifts. Of course you want your butt, hips, and thighs to be tight and toned. But, pears: you also want your body to be balanced, so don’t neglect what’s above the belt.

  • The Best Workouts
    Monday: For each exercise shown, do 1 set of the prescribed repetitions, rest 30 seconds, then do another set of that same exercise. To amp up your results, follow your strength workout with a round of Smart Cardio Intervals.

  • Wednesday: Perform the moves circuit style: Do the prescribed number of repetitions for each exercise, with no rest between exercises. After you’ve done all of the exercises once, rest two minutes. Perform the entire circuit 3 times, resting two minutes between each circuit.

    Friday: Perform each set of two exercises back-to-back, with no rest between each exercise. Rest 30 to 60 seconds before repeating the set one more time.

    SET 1 Lift-off Lunge, Hundred on the Ball
    SET 2 Scissors Jump, Pushup and Leg Raise
    SET 3 Mermaid, Boat Curl and Press
    SET 4 Triangle Lat Raise, Dip and Knee Raise
