Can’t seem to find the right exercise to tone your thighs and hips? This week Woman’s Day magazine features my move of the week, ‘The Clam’ that targets these key areas women seem to always hate.
I do this exercise three times a week along with high intensity cardio on the alternate days twice a week. My favourite high intensity cardio workout is hill running for 30 minutes. Both of these exercises are a great combo for toning the legs and burning fat.
Tip: Remember to follow a healthy diet of proteins, vegetables, grains and fruits which will give you the energy to exercise more efficiently.
It’s the perfect workout for someone looking to benefit from the strength of an athlete with the grace of a dancer.
Get this, a one hour session of Barre3 which combines yoga, pilates and ballet barre can burn up to 600 calories! That’s seriously impressive. Beats my 500 calories that I burn in a one hour run with my aching shin splints and hip flexors. Barre3 which was founded in the USA by Sadie Lincoln in 2008, is a wonderful workout of dynamic movement and isometric holds that follows a sequence for fast body shaping results and long-term postural benefits. It’s the perfect workout for someone looking to benefit from the strength of an athlete with the grace of a dancer. The Barre3 method works on lengthening and strengthening the entire body allowing you to combine the wisdom of yoga and the strength of pilates for a more energetic and positive you.
