Celebrity Secrets to a Slim, Strong, and Sexy Shape

THE CELEBRITY WORKOUT

You’ll need: An exercise mat, step, Valslides, resistance band or dumbbells.

How it works: Do this circuit 3 times without resting between exercises (only resting at end of circuit). “This workout is better than the gym—it’s cardio on steroids!” Waters says.

1. Single-Leg Step-Ups
Reps: 10-15 on each leg

Stand facing a step. Place one foot on the step and the other on the floor. With your abs braced and glutes squeezed, start the movement by pushing through the front foot on the step, driving powerfully upward to the standing position. Lower your body under control. Pause briefly at the bottom and repeat. Complete 10-15 reps on each side.

2. Valslide Reverse Lunge
Reps: 10-15 on each leg

Stand with feet together, place the ball of your left foot on the Valslide®. Slide your left foot back; Right leg will bend at 90-degrees. Slide your left foot up to start position, pulling up with the glute of your right leg. (You should feel this in your glutes and some in your quads of the stationary leg). The sliding leg is just going along for the ride. Complete 10-15 reps on each side.

3. Two-Arm Row
Reps: 15

Keeping your feet shoulder width apart, bend your knees and lean forward until you're at a forty-five degree angle. Pull your shoulder blades back. Now, use a rowing motion to pull the dumbbells toward your stomach then lower the dumbbells down. That's one rep. (You can also use a resistance band). Complete 15 reps.

4. Valslide Body Saw
Reps: 15

Get into plank position with your forearms on the floor and a Valslide under each foot. Push back from your forearms, allowing your feet to slide back. Then, return to the starting position by pulling yourself forward with your forearms. Make sure to keep your abs tight and don’t allow your hips to sink. Complete 15 reps.
