Want to add strength training exercises to your workout plan but unsure where to start? Don’t worry! Strength training is for everyone. :)

“When choosing to exercise, most of us usually go for Pilates, aerobics, Zumba or running, because there is a common belief that strength training is reserved for men and will bulk you up to look like Schwarzenegger. You couldn’t be more wrong!” says personal trainer Sylwia Krysta. “Strength training is the fastest way to build an attractive feminine figure. A toned body, shapely buttocks, faster metabolism, hormonal balance, protection against osteoporosis and slowing down the aging process are just a few of the benefits that come from strength training.”

The basics of strength training

Start each workout with a warm-up to get your heart pumping and your joints and muscles moving.  You can use an exercise bike or a treadmill, or do some rope skipping. If you choose machines for warming up, start slow so as not to raise your heart rate too fast.

Exercises for a flat stomach and toned buttocks and thighs

When working to enhance your glutes, add squats to your workout plan. If you are a beginner, do squats with dumbbells, and after some time switch to a barbell or a kettlebell.

Remember about the correct position of your knees. Don’t let your knees move too much forward and keep them aligned vertically with your heels. Stand with your feet wider apart than in the regular squat, with your toes pointing slightly outward.
