Have you seen the latest movie, EDGE OF TOMORROW? I'm definitely not a fan of Tom Cruise but I watched it because of Emily Blunt! Damn! Her body looks so lethal that I feel bad munching on my popcorn but finished it anyways.
Recently Hollywood have been celebrating strength in women. Not just skinny bodies with a pretty face, but actual celebrities who put in hard work for their roles.
So I spoke to her personal trainer. Okay, just kidding. Being a personal trainer, I know the amount of hard work she had to put in to achieve that body. And yes, it may take longer for most of us but make that journey count! I want to look badass like Rita Vratask, or maybe just half of her.
Before we dedicate time for some arm exercises that you can do at home with a water bottle or with weights at the gym, let's talk about 3 pointers that would help you increase your progress
Stick to unprocessed food, ensuring that you get protein in every meal, keep your meat lean,and ensure that you eat the whole plantation of green leafy vegetable, if you are hungry and need a snack reach out for healthier option such as nuts or vegetable sticks, and also drink loads of water.
Yes Emily Blunt trained 6days a week, 2 and the half hours a day but not all of us have that luxury, so dedicate 20 minute everyday - doing something challenging, throw in some stairs sprints and interval trainers at home and another 40 minutes being active and on the move, like take more toilet breaks , stand and walk around, do some stretches, do some squat at your desk or some table push up, just so you know, i am not responsible if you do get weird stares : )
3) Increase of activity
Make every minute you have active, if you are not rushing, take the longer route, take the stairs, walk your dog, play sports with your friends or when you go shopping, try to increase your walking speed.
Here's some exercises you can do for her svelte upper body.^^
you can choose to finish 1 exercise first and move on to the other or challenge yourself to do exercise number 1-4 without much rest and repeat,
exercise number 5 is basically to challenge you, do as many reps as you can with good form until failure.
for push up, there's 2 option, feel free to pick which ever works for you.
pick a weight that you can do 10 reps and the last 2-5 reps are tough but do-able or even start off with a pair of water bottles!
1) modified push up
1)standard push up
2) lateral raise
3)bend over reverse fly
4)standing arnold press
5) renegade row to push up( slightly more challenging)
