To have a curvy body or an hourglass figure, your waistline must be small and your hips must be wide enough to achieve the physical appearance that your desire. You have to choose the appropriate training exercises that can make your hips become bigger.
Squats and lunges are the types of exercises that are recommended by fitness experts for widening the hips.
Learn how to do the side lunge training by reading the instructions below.
Start with your feet shoulder-width apart and your abdominal muscles engaged to stabilize your spine. Imagine yourself standing in the middle of a clock with your toes facing the 12. Step forward and to the side about 2.5 feet with your right foot, as if trying to step on the number two. Bring your right heel to the floor and then lower your toes as you simultaneously bend both knees. Your left foot remains on the floor behind you, but the inside of your left foot rests on the floor during the downward motion. Once your right thigh is almost parallel to the floor, push off the ground with your right foot and return to your starting position.
You may also go for side lying leg lifts, which is done by strapping ankle weights to your lower legs. Then, lie on your sides. Stack your legs on top of each other. At a 45-degree angle from the floor, lift your leg and lower it back slowly. It is best to repeat this for about 10 times for each leg.
Another hip enhancing training workout is the sumo squat.
To perform a sumo squat, stand with your feet significantly wider than hip-distance apart (about three to four feet), turn your toes out 45 degrees and hold your hands by your sides. Lower yourself down by bending your knees and hips, raising your hands to meet under your chin. Keep your abs tight, back straight and do not let your knees move past your toes when lowering. Once your thighs parallel the floor, root through your heels and rise back up steadily for one rep.
