4 Moves for Toned and Sexy Hips

Women are obsessed with the size of their hips and there’s a good reason for this as a woman’s hips are the favorite place of fat deposits. Women tend to develop fat deposits in the lower part of their body, no matter what body shape they are and skinny jeans make an art out of showing off any extra fat on the hips.

You can’t do anything to prevent this natural rhythm of your body.  Your body type will never change and the way your body deposits fat will become worse with age.

If you work out at least three days a week you will notice a decrease of fat on your hips provided you choose to introduce in your workout routine specific exercises meant to target this problem area.

Bridge with Leg Extension

For this exercise you might need an exercise mat. Start lying on your back, with your legs bent. The inner face of your palms should touch the ground. Extend your leg and keep it in levitation above the ground. Now push your hips up by contracting your abs and glutes until your hips are in a straight line with your shoulders. Hold the position for a second then relax. Do 12 reps for each leg.

Tabletop Kicks

Knee on your exercise mat in the tabletop position. Your hands should be right under your shoulders, your fingers spread, your back straight and parallel with the floor. From this position try to kick upwards with your foot. When extent to the maximum your knee should be aligned with your shoulder and the rest of the body. Bring your leg back to complete the exercise. Do 12 reps for each leg.
