Here's my response from another thread you posted:
"Not Cathe, but here's what I recommend:
Lower Body Blast, Turbo Barre, and Butts n Guts for the lower body
Gym Styles Chest/Triceps and GS Back/Biceps/Shoulders for upper body
STS Total Body for a good, solid overall total body workout that will keep the heart up and fat burning high while challenging all of the muscles- it has some great remixes too!
I am a Meso (hour glass) but I have heard a lot of women that have pear shapes do better with higher reps and lower weight for the bottom half. To build the upper body you'll need to heavy up, especially bc Pears tend to have more ectomorph fibers on the top halves of their bodies which makes it harder to increase muscle sizes.
I'd also recommend continuing Step Aerobics. It's a great lower body workout that uses body weight to strengthen and tone the muscles. It burns major calories too!"
And I do think an LIS Rotation would be beneficial as it provides high calorie burn along with strength both with props and with body weight. It's a perfect combo for a slimming effect.
Proud Momma to a beautiful and healthy baby girl born to us in Nov 2012!!! She is a miracle, my saving grace, and my reason "why". To be able to experience the world through her eyes is what brings me peace and joy.
