Legs: Everyone from celebrities to housewives want to develop tone, lean and sexy legs! To do so, squats must play an integral part in your workout routine! Make sure the proper form is utilized to develop lower body and leg strength. ‘Squats are a fantastic exercise as it develops and recruits all muscles to train efficiently,’ says Michael Ryan. In addition to squats, Ryan encourages his clients to do walking lunges. Depending on the client’s strength and stamina, he instructs them to lunge for distance (80-100 yards) while either carrying weights or wearing a weight vest.
Abdominals: Many celebs are known for their washboard abs. Ryan reminds his clients that ‘abs of steel’ are only possible to achieve if they eat properly, perform cardio and train regularly. He also encourages them to do crunches on the Swiss Ball, as it does not allow the recruitment of the hip flexors.
Proper Nutrition: To help celebrities maintain their lean bodies without deteriorating the muscles, proper nutrition is essential. Ryan recommends constantly feeding the muscles, ‘you have to eat to be thin.’ He encourages his clients to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eat a protein rich meal every 2 to 3 hours at least 5 times per day.GO BACK
