In spite of being thin on the upper body, their lower body is heavier. As a result, this makes them appear disproportionate. A lot of people say that the body shape of a person cannot be changed but that is really not true.

This one is a killer if done the right way. Stand with feet shoulder width apart and bend from the thighs and butts. The knees should not cross the toe-fingers or else you will injure yourself.
