I know you've mentioned that you'd like a more feminine looking body, but if that's not how your body is built, all the exercise in the world isn't going to change that. I have people come up to me and ask me,"how do I get Jlo's butt ?" I tell them honestly, you need Jlo's parents.
By weight, men carry a higher percentage of lean muscle than women do. In general, men carry 40% muscle. Women carry 23%. Having less lean muscle and more body fat is the reason women are curvy. If you really wanted to be curvy, you'd have to increase your body fat and decrease lean muscle.
Obviously, that's not something I'd recommend in a male or female for that matter. It's okay for women to carry extra body fat, it's less so for men. Increased body fat in men would increase the risk for heart disease.
Why not start with an exercise program that will help improve your health first ? If you're not sure where to start, the Spark Fitness section has a strength training workout generator. check it out. Also, Coach Nicole has a bunch of short 10-15 minute workouts you can do at home. It's a place to start.

So, i was using this site for a college pe credit and then basically forgot about since then, but know ill give this a shot. Basically, i have no idea what exercises to do to get what i want. Right off the bat I'm a male of about 5'9 height and 170. I'm by no means unhealthy, but no time like the present to get fit. Problem is i have a very specific idea as to how i want my body to look, i want a feminine, wavy body. Sounds odd, I'm sure, but that's what i want. Small waist, wide hips and smooth all around but still tone. I have no idea what will get this for me in the exercise department so I'm looking for tips. To make matters even worse, more often than not i despise exercise. Unless its very entertaining i wont even try it. So, any ideas?
