Emmanuelle Chriqui’s Fitness Training
It’s the same thing with her body. This star, voted as one of the sexiest women in the world by Maxim Magazine and AskMen.com, loves her cookies and ice cream, just like most women. She does make sure, however that she takes the weight off or takes a weight loss program seriously through exercise and following a strict exercise program of pilates, yoga. She also loves to dance and hike. Actually those are some of her favorite exercise programs.
Emmanuelle Chriqui has had fitness training under her fellow Canadian fitness trainer, Harley Pasternak, who has also done fitness exercise routines with other stars like Angela Bassett, Stephen Dorff, Jim Caviezel and Eliza Dushku.
Typically, Pasternak Fitness Program takes six days full of cardio exercise and then in between these are exercise programs that have to do with resistance training.
The exercise program begins with a warm-up. It consists of five minutes of cardio exercise, usually with very moderate routines. This is followed by a fitness exercise of stretching and then weight training. For resistance, Pasternak, the fitness trainer, recommends that the individual at least do cardio exercises for thirty minutes a day, for five days.
Now these routines are then followed by different exercise programs that are designed to keep the body toned,body part by body part. They are roughly fitness routines done below:
Exercise program for the arms and shoulders
The back of the shoulders must be given attention to as this is often the most neglected part. The fitness trainer recommends use of exercise equipment like the dumbbell shoulder press, the laterals and the shoulder files for this exercise. Make sure to also put extra work on the triceps, rather than the biceps. This will help maintain a nice posture. Too tight a bicep muscle, usually caused by too much exercise, lets you have the tendency to slouch your body.
Exercise program for the legs
Doing a lot of leg exercise like lunges or leg presses keeps the balance of the muscles between the thigh area and its back really tight and coordinated. Don’t forget to pay attention to your hamstrings when you do the fitness routine.
Exercise program for the abs
Contrary to what is common, the best thing you can do for your abs is to do cardio exercise and then follow this with a good diet plan. The abs is considered the most overworked muscle, and what keeps it out of form is actually fat from the food you eat. Sticking to a great diet makes your abs leaner. When it is this way, keeping it toned and in tip top shape becomes easier. Do a variety of abs exercise such as crunches or knee raises regularly.
Work out your butt so that it can keep with the toning of your legs. Every time you do a fitness exercise like lunges and squats, you have to also consider your bottom body part and lower back and include this in your exercise routine.
Get the best fitness training for the best result. What is considered best training should include a lot of variables in that the routines, how long these exercises must be, the reps and the rest time are all considered. The exercise program must be constantly changed so that one doesn’t feel so stuck and unmotivated.
