Sexy Arms:

For pull ups, all you have to do is heave yourself up and down.

This is a good workout for the full body and this really rips the arms and shoulders into shape.


Workout for Sexy Body # 2: Later pull downs

Lateral pull downs can be done with the help of gym equipment. The machine provides a bar with weights that you can take up and down as per your requirement.

While sitting, hold the bar overhead with your hands a little more than shoulder distance and pull it down to your chest.

Once again, extend your arms and repeat until failure.

Workout for Sexy Body # 3: Bent over rows

Stand with your legs at shoulder width and knees slightly bent.

Hold dumbbells with arms straight at knee level.

Now pull your arms back, bending at the elbows and then extend them. Repeat till failure.

Sexy Chest:

Workout for Sexy Body # 4: Chest Dips

Hold yourself up on a dip bar and, make sure to keep your head down and your legs straight beneath you, lower yourself by bending your elbows, and come back up to the starting position.

Make sure to keep the movement in your chest and not in your triceps, as you are working the former.

Workout for Sexy Body # 5: Bench Press

Lie down on a flat bench, making sure that you are not arching your back, and grip the barbell with your hands shoulder-width apart, palms facing your feet, and press the barbell straight up and back down.

Doing the presses on an incline, will place more emphasis on your upper chest, whereas a decline will place more emphasis on your lower chest.

Workout for Sexy Body # 6: Cable crossovers

Stand between two pulleys, and adjust them slightly above shoulder height. Grip the pulleys, with palms facing forward and elbows slightly bent.

Contract your chest muscles, bringing your arms down below your chest and back to the starting position.

Sexy Abs:

Workout for Sexy Body # 7: Vertical leg crunch

The vertical leg crunch is similar to a regular crunch. But it requires you to keep your legs straight, which makes the abs work harder and increases the workout's intensity.

Lie down with hands behind your head

Put your legs straight up with knees crossed

Flex abs to lift head and shoulders off the floor

Lay back down

Keep legs extended in the air the whole time

Exhale when you flex; inhale when you lay back down

Do 1-3 sets with 12-16 repetitions

Workout for Sexy Body # 8: Reverse crunch

The reverse crunch was also ranked above regular crunches as the 5th best exercise for strengthening core muscles.

Lie flat on the floor with arms at your sides

Cross your feet and lift them off the floor so your knees create a 90-degree angle

Contract ab muscles and lift head and shoulders off the ground

Exhale when you contract; inhale when you lower back down

Do 1-3 sets with 12-16 repetitions

Workout for Sexy Body # 9: Ball balance

Lie on the ball and exhale, pulling your abs in a stabilize position. Now, raise your right arm in a frontward direction and left leg on the back side. Breathe and hold yourself in this position for 10 seconds.

In the meantime, using your ab and back muscles, keep the ball steady and body in a straight line.

Repeat this same exercise in with the opposite arm and left. Perform a set of 5 on each side.

In order to make this exercise harder, hold yourself in the raised position as if you are writing something in the air with your extended arm. Switch sides and repeat.

Workout for Sexy Body # 10: Elevated plank

Place your forearms on the ball and keep your fingers interlaced. Now extend your legs straight behind and take the help of your toes for support.

Now exhale, pulling your belly button towards your spine and hold yourself in this position for 30 to 60 seconds.

Make sure your back is straight and in a flat line. Give yourself a break of 30 seconds and repeat. In order to make this exercise easier, you can perform it by placing your forearms on the floor.

And, for a harder version of this exercise, move from a plank to a swiss ball. Here, try and bring your knees towards your chest and do 10 repetitions per leg.

Workout for Sexy Body # 11: Obliques

Lie on the side with the legs extended & the body in a straight line. Extend the lower arm so that it is perpendicular to the body. The palm of your hand should face the floor.

Keep the upper arm by the side, aligned with the body. Balance and slowly raise the lower shoulder (the one touching the floor) and both the legs off the floor simultaneously.

This works the side (waist) facing upwards. Come down slowly. After completing a set of certain repetitions, repeat the procedure on the other side.

Sexy Butt:

Workout for Sexy Body # 12: Lunges

Lunges exercise the same muscles as squats, but lunges make the gluteal muscles work harder to slow your body as you lower down. What's more, lunges require more stability, which engages the calves and lower back muscles.

Stand with feet hip-width apart

Hold a dumbbell in either hand; if desired

Take a big step forward with your right leg

Bend both knees to slowly lower your body

Don't bend knees more than 90 degrees and keep the front knee aligned over your front ankle

Step back to start position and repeat with left leg

For explosive lunges: jump and switch legs in midair.

Workout for Sexy Body # 13: Bridges

Without any equipment, you can tone your glutes, rectus abdominus, erector spinae, hamstrings, and adductors.

Lie on your back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor.

Slowly lift your spine, 1 vertebrae at a time, starting at your butt.

Tighten glutes and hamstrings to create a tight line from shoulders to knees.

Slowly lower your back to the floor.

Workout for Sexy Body # 14: Brazilian butt sculptor

Brazilian women are known for their beautiful curves and with this fast workout, you can firm your butt and tone your thighs to get enviable curves, too. All you need is a stability ball.

In a simultaneous motion, step up and 'pick up' your hips on the opposite side as your step leg

Step down backwards with the same technique of holding the hip level

Sexy Lower Body:

Workout for Sexy Body # 17: Deadlifts

If your glutes and hamstrings (back of thighs) need more attention, deadlifts are the best exercise for the job. You can boost the intensity by standing on a block or board, which puts more tension on muscles. However, if your goal is to build strength, you can lift more weight if you're not standing on an elevated surface.

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart

Hold a barbell in front of your body or two dumbbells at your sides

Look forward, and keep arms straight and knees slightly bent

Slowly bend hip joint - not waist - and knees, and lower weights as far as you can without bending your back

Squeeze glutes and lift weight back up
