How To Get Hip Bones
To Stick Out
Weight Training Question:
want to know how I can get my hip bones to stick out so they look
like a "V line". I'm pretty lean right now and I think
my body fat is low but my hip bones don't stick out for some reason.
Are there any exercises or diet advice to help me?
Weight Training Answer:
Before giving you advice on reaching your goals, its important
to determine what exactly you are looking for. If your goal is to
get that super "heroin chic" thin look of those high end
runway models you see in fashion magazines and on TV, then this
is something that I highly recommend not focusing your attention
on since its extremely unhealthy to be that skinny. Many of these
girls suffer from eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia. They
are severely underweight and unhealthy which is something you should
not view as "cool".
The structure of your hip bones and other physical characteristics
is purely genetic. If you want to accentuate a "V-Taper"
look where your waist appears narrow, then you might want to work
on developing your back muscles more, since increasing the thickness
in your lats will really give you a "V-taper" look with
an appearance of a very small waist.
If you happen to be carrying a little too much body fat, then by
following the proper exercise and diet program will help you decrease
fat and tone up your abdominals along with your overall core muscles.
Having excess abdominal fat is one of the most dangerous kinds of
excess weight to carry, as fatty deposits around the abdomen have
been linked to all kinds of health maladies. Losing fat around this
area will not only help you achieve the coveted V-shaped physique,
but it will also contribute to enhanced health. Focusing your efforts
on the two following areas will help you achieve this lean look
and contribute to greater health. These two areas include losing
body fat and increasing muscle tone.
fitness program should include a healthy eating plan, but in our
mission to reduce overall body fat and achieve definition in the
abdominal area, special attention must be focused on how one fuels
their body. A diet that excludes junk food, highly processed foods
and sugary drinks is essential. If it comes out of a box or has
more ingredients than you have fingers, consuming it will only push
you farther away from reaching your goals.
This means focusing on a nutrient dense whole food diet by eating
plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and drinking lots
of water to stay hydrated. Eating clean foods such as these will
help provide plenty of energy for your intense workouts so you can
build muscle and burn fat.
This can include everything from a brisk walk for about thirty minutes
five times a week, to intense HIIT cardio training on the treadmill.
By increasing your heart rate, intense regular cardio workouts will
help you create a calorie deficit and help you burn off excess body
Practicing yoga is a great way to increase your overall core strength
and tone up your abdominal muscles as well as your entire body.
These areas include your back, legs, arms and core since many yoga
moves include stretches that focus on maintaining intense core strength
by bending and holding poses at the waist. It also includes the
added benefit of being a proven stress reducer.
These exercises can be slightly challenging, and should be done
with a friend or spotter present until you get accustomed to them.
Begin in a plank or push up position, then carefully place your
feet and lower legs on an exercise ball. When you feel stable, flex
your hips and abdomen to pull your legs toward the right side of
the body, keeping your back as straight as possible. Alternate with
your left side and do this for about 10-15 reps per set, with about
sixty seconds of rest in between sets. Remember to breathe evenly
and maintain control of the ball at all times.
When you combine abdominal exercises, intense cardio workouts and
a clean diet into your overall fitness regimen, you will be on your
way to reaching your ultimate physique goals. Just make sure you
always stay at a healthy weight and I'm sure you will achieve that
sexy and lean V-Tapered look!
