Any woman who’s spent time on the health and fitness side of social media in 2018 knows that a strong, sexy physique is seriously on trend right now. Gone are the days that skinny, barely-there models had the figure we all want. Today it’s all about strong thighs, a bootylicious bum, and healthy curves that have been sculpted through plenty of hard work in the gym. If you’re ready to take on the challenge of sculpting a body that followers flock to on Instagram, you’ll need to hit the weights and change your whole definition of fitness. Here’s how to get started.

Ditch The Restrictive Diets.

A diet that’s very low in calories and those essential macronutrients won’t get you anywhere if you want a fit, curvy body. The right nutritional balance and calorie intake for you will totally depend on your own body type, whether or not you have weigh to lose or gain, and how active you are overall. Either way, you’ll definitely need to eat enough nutritious food on a daily basis to fuel muscle growth if you want to see results. If you struggle to fit enough calories and protein into your diet to build the curves you want, Bulk Powders made into tasty smoothies can be a great way to boost your diet. If you’ve got some excess fat to lose, eating a small calorie deficit and adding some cardio alongside your strength training routine should see you building lean muscle mass while shedding unwanted fat.

There are plenty of arguments around about which diet is best for creating the physique you want, but ultimately you’ll need to find the balance that works best for you. Your food should make you feel energised, satisfied, and powered up for a great workout, so focus on your goals while you come up with an eating plan that suits your lifestyle.

Focus On The Areas You Want To Build

When it comes to strength training, you can tailor your program to suit your specific health and aesthetic goals. If you’re pining for that big booty look that’s popular right now, you’re going to want to focus on your glutes. You could spend hours in the gym every day, but if you don’t do a workout that gets a burn going in your glutes, your backside won’t grow. If you’re losing fat and neglecting the weights room, it may even shrink. Perfect your form when it comes to squats and lunges – you can start with bodyweight exercises to get the form down, and then progress to using weights once you feel confident.

If you’re more interested in sculpting a shredded six-pack than a big bum, you’ll need to focus on shedding any excess belly fat so that the muscles underneath are visible, and working on core-focused movements that build up the abdominal muscles. One of the many awesome things about incorporating weight training into your healthy lifestyle is that lifting weights and building muscle will actually help shed those unwanted pounds and make it easier to reveal your abs. This is because a body with a higher percentage of muscle naturally burns more energy throughout the day than one with low muscle mass; so don’t neglect the weights room, even if your primary focus is dropping a jeans size.
