We’re not saying to give up on cardio, in fact you should definitely be engaging in regular aerobic exercise. Exercises like power yoga, Pilates, planks and of course weight training help to tone muscle, raise your basal metabolism and you’ll burn even more calories while resting!
Resistance exercises help to tone your arms, back and chest muscles. Try incorporating pushups, pullups, yoga sun salutations and triceps dips into your workout. Even just some bicep curls with a tin of beans is a good start!
3. Make sure you’re wearing the right clothes
Even if you don’t have much armpit fat, when you’re wearing the wrong bra or clothes, it makes it more obvious.
The majority of women are wearing the wrong bra size so get fitted for optimum support and comfort. Good excuse to go shopping, right?!
Turns out your teachers were right, slouching really isn’t good for you! Not only does good posture make you look taller and more elegant, but it also tones your muscles and keeps your bones in line.
