Amy Rosoff Davis who is the trainer of Selena Gomez shared how the singer keeps her abs toned.
He said that the training principles remain the same balance and wellness, no matter if you are a celebrity client or someone who is not much famous.
“I’m not about making the workout crazy and obsessive, but doing things that feel fun,” says Davis.
“I will do kickboxing with someone one day. I’ll do an entire yoga flow another day—sometimes it’s a really hard yoga and others it will be Ashtanga, which is more of a detoxing type of yoga. I’ll make them do two minutes of jump rope on and off for an hour,” she notes.’’
“I get bored doing the same stuff and I know Selena and my other clients would be bored doing the same thing every day too.”
“A lot of people don’t know that you need to do some sort of cardio and some sort of toning to get results,” she says. “To build musculature and get your metabolism working, you have to do some of those toning moves. But cardio you need for your endurance and stamina and to burn calories.”
Davis shared how much cardio you should do, for how long and what you should eat. He said that everyone has a different type of body and different needs, you need to make healthy food and exercise a part of your life.
He shared 4 moves to keep your abs and butt toned:
1. Inchworm to Push-up to Shoulder Taps
To do this exercise, you need to stand with feet a little wider than hip-width apart. Hinge forward at your hips, placing your palm on the floor. Bend your elbows and lower your chest to the ground. Repeat the whole process 5-10 times.
2. Second Position Plies w/ First to Second Arms
Keep your feet little wider while standing and hold a one-pound dumbbell in each hand, hold arms at sides so that they form 90-degree angles. Keep your thighs parallel to the floor and bend your knees and lower your hips down.
3. Double Mat Roll
Lie on the mat with your arms extended straight overhead and start rolling over to the left. Complete one full revolution.
4. Hip Up + Leg Lift
Bend your one leg and keep the feet behind them. Place your left hand on the ground for support and right hand on right hip. Lift your hips, lift right leg up and extend it straight out on a diagonal.
Davis advised about doing the workout in a post which he shared on Instagram.
He wrote, “There is not one answer or perfect recipe. Every body is totally different (thank goodness or we would all look the same!) and has different needs. Instead of searching for “the answer”, try and life your healthiest life. Make exercise and healthy food part of lifestyle. Or rather- make it your lifestyle!”
“Make a commitment to take care of your body, because it FEELS GOOD- not because you think a certain amount of time at the gym will make you a certain size. Or that eating a stalk of celery will make you fit in those size 2 jeans. For the record, I love celery….
but I also love steak …and fries… and all the yummy foods out there.”Food is life! But. It’s all about balance. Love that gorgeous body you were given and treat it with kindness and respect and it will do the same to you!!
“Be active. Get your heart pumping. Do yoga. Stretch. Take a dance class. Hike. And eat healthy yummy stuff that makes your skin and body feel LIT (yup, I said it). And if and when you don’t do any of those things cause you want that pasta or want the couch instead of the treadmill…. don’t beat yourself up. There is always tomorrow or another day.”
