There are two parts to the workout. One is to slim and firm your lower body and two, to balance it out by toning and building more definition on your upper body. This will enhance your natural curves and give your body a more proportionate hourglass look.

#1 Lunges

The next step to burn the fats on your thighs and butt is leg lifts. Kneel with both hands on a yoga mat. Straighten your legs backwards and lift it up, then return to your original position. Repeat 30 times for each leg.

#7 Inner arm stretch

As ladies with pear-shaped bodies have a slender top half compared to the lower body with smaller shoulders, it's also important to work on toning your shoulders and arms to create balance.

Curl your hands into a fist and fold your arms inwards so that the fists are pointing at each other. Make sure your shoulders and arms are straight, then stretch outwards till you feel a pull on your inner arms. Repeat for 30 seconds.

#8 Vertical punches

Create more definition on your shoulders with this easy workout. Fold your arms at the elbows and make sure your palms are facing inwards, then curl your hands into fists. Punch one arm up into the air with your palm facing outwards and making sure that the arm is straight while the other arm remains folded and vice versa. Repeat for 30 seconds.

#9 Abdomen stretch

It's important to do abdomen stretches as some of the earlier exercises involve the core muscles. Lie on your stomach with your legs shoulder width apart and prop your body up with your arms. Hold for 15 seconds and do two sets.

#10 Back stretch

End your workout with a back stretch to help you keep a straight posture and avoid slouching your shoulders. Bend your body into a right angle, put your palms on the wall and lift your head slightly. Stay in this position for one to three minutes.
