How to Do Women's Body Sculpting

Save

Many people don't realize the difference between toning through exercise and sculpting body parts to a specific size and shape. It takes more effort and focus to sculpt the body as well as discipline and a plan of action. Body sculpting is a body-building sport in which women compete and show off well-defined muscles. Body sculpting is also a way to gauge the effects of your training.

  • Lose the fat. No matter how much you work out, lift weights and try to define your muscles, they cannot show through layers of fat. Fat and muscle are two different substances. Dieting is the only way to lose fat.

  • Start with small goals. Sculpting is a process that requires a long-term commitment. It is easy to get discouraged when you don't see big results quickly. So shoot for the easy ones, such as seeing the outline of your biceps. Reaching little goals can help keep you on track for the milestones.

  • Try some beginner exercises with small dumbbells to get started. Many of these exercises may be part of your aerobic workout routine. Moves like the side squat, arm raise, double arm curl, row and extension and push-ups can give you an idea of how body scuplting works.

  • Listen to your body. When it screams with pain from too many reps on the barbells or too much weight in your free weights, slow down or stop. Injury is the fastest way to end a body-sculpting regimen. If you hurt yourself, you'll only have to start all over, so it's better to slow down than go through recovery and beginner routines.

  • Schedule some downtime for yourself. It should be as much as the workout so you give your muscles time to rebuild. Alternate areas that you work on every other day to avoid injuries.

  • Feed your muscles with a high-protein diet. Get into high-protein whey power shakes. Drink one third of a shake before a workout and the rest of it immediately following your routine. Your muscles are open and ready to receive the added nutrition at that time.
