It doesn’t have to be like a specific exercise. It can be a routine,video,etc.

When it came to weight loss: Cardio, running, or just walking a lot. It's always recommended to take at least 10.000 steps a day, although depending on your BMI even less than that can lead to weight-loss. When it came to toning/shaping certain areas of my body, probably Pilates

Weight lifting helped me to achieve a "tighter" look, rather than skinny fat

Walking a lot to lose weight, and for shaping, workouts with resistance bands/light weights

Pilates + walking

Will I be missed because of who I am or because of how they see me?

Walking and martial arts :) sometimes running, but not often as I'll get too hungry.

running! when i was running longer distances I actually got abs even though I did practically no stomach exercises. I've heard running is one of the only exercises that uses all of your muscles all at once

Weights / bodyweight exercise to have a better fat/muscle ratio and body composition (X-shape or whatever you call it so that I have at least a slight indication of a waist :D ).

It's such a funny little game... If you lose, you win.

The tricky part is, when you win it all, you probably die.

walking and chloe ting ab workout. trust me if you walk every day at a fast pace you will see differences. your body doesn’t see it as an extreme exercise like running and cardio where it needs to use the muscles so it uses fat.

Tracy Anderson's Metamorphosis and 10,000 - 15,000 steps a day got me to my lowest weight and tiniest measurements. Those are my legs in my avatar.

i second the strength training/weight lifting with a sprinkle of cardio. you don’t even have to lift heavy either and i found walking to be sufficient for cardio. barre also helped my legs look slender.

I make my own workouts for different body groups... My ab workout works. I do it at least twice a week, but by the time you have done it 10 times, you WILL notice a difference in your ABS. Happy to share if you want it. xx

Normally I do ballet, row, and swim. All high calorie burners and are good for toning as well. but during the pandemic I’ve gotten into YouTube Pilates videos

When I was starting out, I just focused on upper and lower body movements, but not targeting each muscle group just yet (like having a day specified to a certain group of muscles). So example, one day would be squats, bench press and rows. It sounds basic, but it's much smarter to ease your way into it and learn basic movements (and beginners progress quite fast over just a few weeks).

 

Then I just gradually built from that once I've spent a few weeks at it, and I'm ready to advance to a next level.

 

Hope that helps!
