Abs, legs and booty workout for an hourglass figure

This one is for the short and curvy girls out there. I feel your pain, it can be really hard to find a workout routine that doesn’t make you look and feel super bulky. I personally like my curvy body, but I do have to pay attention to the type of workouts I use. This hourglass figure workout helps you shape your abs, legs and booty. I like a lean body, but I want to keep my curves without bulking up too much. That’s why you’ll find my favorite exercises to create that perfect hourglass figure for yourself.

This hourglass workout is pretty easy to do, but it makes you work because I use a lot of reps. I also take really short breaks myself to keep my heart rate up, so I can sweat like crazy. You can do this workout without machines, you just need some weights depending on the exercise. I personally like to use less weight, but more reps so I don’t end up too muscular. So grab yourself some dumbbells or a five to ten kilo plate to get yourself started. Don’t forget to bring the list below to the gym so you know exactly what to do!
