How I Maintain My Slamming Body! – Workout Tips
June 22, 2010
Eating right hasn’t been my only secret to staying healthy and fit.
After 40 it is a known fact that your metabolism slows down. So I have had to become more active and really work hard to keep my body in shape.
I used to think cardio was enough until I met the most amazing trainer Gaby Boterashvili from Infinity Body!
He gets your heart rate up and down which has been proven to provide results and it has truly helped both Mario and I.
Here’s a glimpse into a typical work out routine that I do with my trainer Gaby:
1. 3 sets of 30 deep squats. The trick to this move is to squeeze your butt on the way up. Trust me it works!
2. I then have to do sprints for 1 minute, running back and forth.
3. Free weights – 7.5 lbs. Ladies, it definitely helps to use weights for toning.
3 sets of 20 bicep curls
3 sets of 20 arm raises
3 sets of 20 overhead pulls
4. 3 set os 20 butt raises
5. No one likes push ups but they are really great for your body! – I do 3 sets of 20 push ups (they can be done on your knees)
6. 3 planks 1 minute each
7. 3 sets of 20 crunches:
Because I have a bad lower back…Gaby has me do my crunches like this:
Lay on the ground
puts hands/ fingers on your forehead
Bring knees to chest
Then bring elbows to knees
So are you ready for your new body??? 🙂
I know its hard but as women the earlier you can start is this easier it will be to maintain as you get older.
All the best,
