Many people shy away from wearing shorts and cute summer dresses because they feel that their bodies are not in top shape. We’re half way through the summer and it’s the perfect time to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Lyzabeth Lopez, a fitness guru, holistic nutritionist, and the creator of the Hourglass Workout shares some tips that can help you get into gear this summer.
Everyone envies Latinas like Lopez who have a perfect hourglass figure, but you’re not really born with these curves, you have to mold your body to look this good and have to put in the work. Here is what she recommends to get the hourglass figure of your dreams:
Cardio: To lose fat and maintain muscle mass, go for short cardio bursts every two days.
20-Minute Treadmill HIIT (high-intensity interval training) Sprint: Start with a 3-minute warm up jog. From minutes 4-10, perform moderate intensity sprints for 45 seconds to one minute with 30 seconds of rest in between. Once you hit the 10-minute mark, increase your speed and sprint for 20-30 seconds with one to one and a half minutes of rest in between.
Weights: Plain old squats using only your body weight won’t do much to boost your butt, says Lyzabeth, so you’ve got to lift.
This is a fun exercise to work on balance, booty, core, hamstrings, & biceps! 😍 It’s not one I usually do, but it’s fun to mix up my training sometimes. Generally my training on a deadlift would be heavy deadlifts to add size to my glutes and hams, but as I said… I like to mix it up, and this is a fun challenge. (I also like to go light on my weights sometimes as I find it easier to isolate and activate the muscle the Hans/glutes that way).😜 🙌 PS… What’s your favourite type of deadlift??
