If you are a typical woman - you have a problem with your body. There is a "problem zone" namely the hips, that you would like to exercise to improve your standards.

My problem is exercising my hips and buttocks. These parts of my body tend to have the mind of their own and expand without confirming it with me. It became especially obvious after my baby was born. So, what is a girl to do

YES - Hip Exercises! Great answer!

I am there with you! However if you are a typical woman, especially if you are a MOM, you have a very limited time for such activity as an exercise. So, I set up on a quest to determine what kind of physical activity will work fastest to produce the results I want - stronger, leaner legs, sexy hips and a tight butt. I want results and I want them quick.

There are some obvious suggestions: jogging, swimming, cycling or exercise systems. Let's look at each of the activities above

Jogging is wonderful way to get rid of some weight around the hips!

On a plus side, jogging does not require any special equipment; it is rather effective and brings you a fantastic emotional charge. However, as you jog you train the same groups of muscles that you would normally use every day. Those are mostly leg muscles. Jogging does nothing to give you shapely hips. Another minus to jogging: it takes time. A lot of it.

Swimming is another great option to lose some hip weight.

It strengthens the back muscles without putting a huge strain on your spine. So you can actually exercise a little longer without reaching that pain barrier.

There are couple problems, though: if you use the same swimming style you run a risk of overworking the top part of your body and end up with bigger arms and shoulders. Not exactly a desirable result if you want to reduce the size of your hips. Another problem for me personally: swimming is boring. Of course, you can try to make it a little more entertaining and change the swimming style every two laps or so. For example, start with crawl, switch to breaststroke and follow up by any type of backstroke. But again, the main problem is time. Not everyone is that lucky to be able to go to pool 3-4 times a week and swim for an hour.

OK, next on the list is cycling.

Cycling is an outstanding workout if your goal is strong and powerful legs. It does nothing for building shapely hips. Sorry bike lovers.

How about exercise systems

Those are the best if your aim is an improvement of a particular body part. You can concentrate all your efforts on your favorite "problem zone". Usually, this type of exercise program can be done at home, does not require any special equipment and can be done in 20-30 minutes sessions.

There are a lot of resources out there. You can put together your own set of moves (see any fitness book) or you can follow a hip weight loss program. Programs usually give quicker and more pronounced results for couple reasons. Usually the program set up in such way that the intensity of the exercise slowly increases and challenges you to push yourself a little more every time you do it. Another reason: programs eliminate the guesswork out of your workout. They also come with some sort of motivational support system.

My quest has resulted in the conclusion that for my busy-MOM life style who wants to get back her sexy shape, the exercise program is the way to go.
