Inverted triangle Body Shape - 5 Exercises You Must Do

Inverted-triangle-body-shape-workout

If you are looking for a workout for your inverted triangle body shape, there are five exercises you must do. These are the characteristics of an inverted triangle, but not all triangles have these.

Characteristics of an inverted triangle: 
  • The top part of your body is larger than your bottom part and you may wear a bigger size on top 
  • Shoulders are wider than your hips
  • The bust tends to be large
  • Hips are small
  • Your legs are shapely
Like I said above, you may not have all of these attributes. I wear medium tops and bottoms. My breasts are not large and my arms are thin. If your shoulders are wider than your hips, you are probably an inverted triangle or an apple body shape. 
To make our bodies more proportional the goal would be to increase our bottom half through weight training. This is done by lifting heavy weights with repetitions between 8-12. Your upper body workouts should be done with light weights or bands with a lot of repetitions (15-20) for toning not building.

Just remember this fact, this program will not turn your body shape into an hourglass. Love your body and work with what you have. However, if you want a shapelier bottom half you have to work at it. 

The following are the 5 exercises you need to do at least three days a week.

Sumo Squats



Hip Abductions

Muscle Building for Beginners: Crafting Your First Inverted Triangle Workout Plan

Stepping into the gym as a beginner can be incredibly intimidating. There are dozens of different machines, all kinds of terminology and people doing all kinds of different things. Trying to study bodybuilding is even more intimidating: there seems to be all sorts of conflicting advice all over the place.

This is a quick, simple and easy step by step guide to getting started with muscle building. Follow these steps and you'll be able to craft your first workout in no time. Get started with this guide, then study bodybuilding further once you're on the path.

Schedule 2 or 3 Days a Week to Work Out

Schedule 2 or 3 days to do your workouts. Make sure those days aren't back to back.When you're just starting out, your muscles aren't used to handling load and aren't used to recovering from a workout. So don't push yourself too hard.

If you go from zero to working out back-to-back days, you risk injury and your body also won't be able to recover fast enough. So schedule just two or three days for the first month or two.

Start with a Warm-Up

Begin by warming your body up. If you're warmed up, you reduce your chances of injury and increase your ability to perform. It's much harder to go from zero to doing 15 tough reps than it is to do the reps once the blood is flowing.

There are two ways to warm up. You can do a bit of cardio, such as using the treadmill or stationary bike. Alternatively, you can just do a few reps of the exercises you plan on doing, except with very light weights.

Progressive Improvement

Every week, add one or two reps to your upper body workouts. For your lower body, try to increase the weight amount every two - three weeks.

The idea is to progressively improve slowly and steadily. Never try to jump ahead and don't add weight or reps too quickly. Let your muscles build strength and adjust.

This is a simple, step by step formula for anyone to get started with weight training. Even if you've never picked up a weight in your life, these steps will be able to get you through the first few weeks of your workout.
