Kinobody has grown at an exponential rate ever since it’s birth in the beginning of 2011. When I originally started kinobody it was completely geared towards men. In the past few months I have had many new female readers. I am very excited to finally address a workout approach for the fairer of my followers. Let’s get started :D
The Ideal Female Physique:
Slim, Fit & Sexy
As a heterosexual male with impeccable taste I have a very clear idea of what a super attractive feminine body looks like. If I had to summarize the perfect feminine body in three words it would be; slim, fit and sexy! Flat and lightly defined stomach, toned arms, slim legs and of course a great butt. Great examples of women who perfectly fit this description are Zoe Saldana (on the slim side), Annalynne Mccord, Olivia Wilde, Beyonce Knowles (on the curvacious side) and of course Jessica Alba.
Don’t Overdo it
Achieving such an incredible body that is still very feminine looking takes a precise approach. Most personal trainers today are telling women that they produce less then 10% of the testosterone that males do so they will never get bulky. Well be that as it may women are still very capable of adding more muscle then what is visually appealing. I have witnessed this time and time again and it is most evident with high level female athletes who follow intense weight training routines. Women have to be especially careful with leg training as they can easily over bulk their legs. Thick, muscular legs on a girl are never a great look.
The Kinobody Slim, Fit & Sexy Workout Principles
1. Strength Training for Tone not Size
I believe most girls are looking to strengthen and tone their muscles without making them bigger. The best way to achieve this is to keep the keep the total volume on each muscle group low while avoiding failure. You see the key to maximizing muscle growth is to perform a large amount of volume while pushing each set to it’s limit. By doing the opposite – only performing a few sets and stopping 2-3 reps shy of failure on each set you can avoid muscle growth altogether. This will allow you to build a fit physique that isn’t muscular.
2. Interval and Cardio Training for slim, fit legs
Most girls will look their absolute best if they drop all leg movements from their routine and instead focus on intervals and cardio to work their legs. Intervals and cardio will give girls slim, fit and athletic looking legs. I recommend women perform their intervals and cardio on the treadmill or elliptical with an incline. This will really target their butt and firm it up pretty nicely. Avoid the bike as it doesn’t really work the butt and it can over bulk your thighs from the pump.
3. Core Training for Flat, Firm Abs
Women want to really avoid building thick, deep abs. Instead they should opt for a flat and firm midsection with a tasteful amount of definition. The best exercises to achieve this are planks and leg raises. Planks strengthen the inner, deep abdominals (TVA) that keep the core rigid and flat. Leg raises build and develop the abs perfectly. Crunches and sit ups should be avoided because they are damaging to the spine and bad for posture.
4. Calorie Deficit for Fat Loss
If you need to slim down to reach your goal weight then you will have to restrict your calories. There is no other way around this. You can workout as much as you want but if you are overeating you will never get the slim, fit body you’re after. The easiest way to accomplish this is to eat a small breakfast and lunch and a big, satisfying dinner. By keeping your first two meals small you can maximize fat burning throughout the day and look forward to an enjoyable meal at night.
