workouts and workout routines for plus size women

Last Updated on April 7, 2022 by Latrice

On the hunt for some plus-size friendly workouts and workout routines, I gathered 10 popular plus size workouts women are loving to add to my routines.

Whether you’re working out to maintain your healthy, curvy figure, get toned, or lose weight, these home and gym exercises and workout routines can help you with that.

My weight loss and fitness goals are to tone up and lose some inches but keep my thick legs and butt with a bit of jiggle. I am a fan of keeping a bit of jiggle on my body. A little grip. As my ex calls it. lol

Funny story. My ex called me the other day on video chat and when I got up to get something, he saw my butt. He gon’ say, “damn, your butt got big! Usually, you have to pay for that, but all you had to do is sit and eat!”

He’s from Ghana. Born and raised. These are things they culturally, comfortably say… I wasn’t salty about it. Ok, just a little, but it was more so funny than anything.


How to start and stick to a workout routine

Start with a workout schedule and the types of workouts that you can manage now and then build yourself up to more workouts.

Jumping into 6 days of exercise and 2-hour workouts when you first get started makes the habit hard to stick with.

Build the habit of exercise and then add more days and more intense workouts.

Secondly, schedule when you’ll be working out and add the scheduled workout to your planner or fitness journal.

Make time for workouts so that they actually get done.

Third, keep a fitness journal and track your progress.

Doing so has kept me organized, aware of my weight lifting progress, and has saved time on determining what workouts to do.

I’ve created two journals for planning, tracking, and journaling:
