3 celeb workouts to get ya lookin' fierce, fast!


We know it can be a drag when you don’t see result after you’ve been working out hard. Especially when you turn on the TV and see beautiful celebrities. Don’t worry! We’re dishin’ the dirt on how Kelly Clarkson, Jordin Sparks and Emma Stone keep themselves fit. Try out these six exercises and you’ll be lookin’ like a celeb in no time!

 

Get sleek like Kelly Clarkson

Crazy 8 Lunges

Start with your feet shoulder width apart. Holding a medicine ball in front of you, step forward with your right leg into a lunge position. Twist your upper body to the right. Begin with reaching across to the left side as if your arms are making an “8” in the air. As you twist to the left side, step forward with your left leg into a lunge position. Try 25 reps.

Squats with Jumping Jacks

Start with your feet together and your arms above your head. Jump out into a squat position and bring your arms down to your legs. (These arms are opposite of normal jumping jacks). Then, jump back into starting position. Complete 25 reps.

 

Shape up like Jordin Sparks

Pushup to Plank

Start in a pushup position. Lower yourself down bending your elbows, like a normal pushup. When you come up to the starting position, shift your weight to your right hand and rotate your body to the left. Extend your left hand to the ceiling. Come back to the starting position and repeat, only this time, rotate to the opposite side. This is one rep. Do 10!

V-Up

Start lying face up on the floor with your arms extended over your head and your legs straight down. Raise your upper body and lift one of your legs as you reach your fingers to your toes. Return to the starting position and repeat with the other leg. You’ve got one rep down. Only ten to go.

 

Get toned like Emma Stone

The 100

Start by lying flat on your back with your arms down by your sides – your palms should be facing down. Lift your shoulders and head off the mat and bring your legs up to a 45-degree angle. Make sure to keep them straight. Inhale for five counts, and then exhale for five counts the entire exercise. As you’re breathing, pump your arms up and down 100 times. Then you’re done!

Single Leg Stretches

Lie on your back and bring your left knee into your chest while you raise your right leg to a 45-degree angle. Lift your head and shoulders, and place your left hand on your ankle and your right hand on your knee (both on the leg that is in towards your chest). Count to 2, and then switch legs. Try 10-20 reps.
