Minka Kelly’s Exercise Routine

So in an effort to promote the Bombshell2013 year of health and wholeness…here is one of my fitness inspirations Minka Kelly and her workout routine. which i will be trying this weekend. P.S. i decided to join a gym again. i need a class and with the weather being so temperamental i think a controlled environment is just what i need!

Minka Kelly’s Workout care of SELF magazine

Twister: Works shoulders, abs, butt, legs Stand with feet hip-width apart, a 5-pound dumbbell in each hand at shoulder height, palms forward. Squat, then return to standing, as you pivot left foot so torso twists to right and extend arms overhead (as shown). Repeat on opposite side for 1 rep. Do 6 to 10 reps.

Dig Dipper: Works butt, legs Stand with feet hip-width apart, a weight in each hand at sides throughout. Step right leg back and to left, coming into a deep squat (as shown). Return to start. Repeat on the opposite side for 1 rep. Do 10 to 12 reps.

All over toner: Works shoulders, abs, butt, legs Stand with feet hip-width apart, a weight in each hand at sides. Raise weights out to sides at shoulder height as you step left leg back into a reverse lunge (as shown). Return to start. Repeat on opposite leg for 1 rep. Do 12 reps.

Ballsy Bicycle: Works abs, obliques Lie faceup, holding a 3- to 6-pound medicine ball at chest. Lift shoulder blades and legs about 6 inches off floor, then bring left knee toward chest and twist torso toward left knee (as shown). Switch sides, twisting torso to bent right knee, for 1 rep. Continue alternating in a pedaling motion. Do 12 reps.

Kelly’s Cardio Plan: Running is Kelly’s fat-burning activity of choice. So she hits the treadmill on her own. Here’s her personal sweat-inducing, heart-pumping interval mix.

1 minute at 5.0
1 minute at 5.5
1 minute at 6.0
1 minute at 6.5
1 minute at 7.0
1 minute at 7.5
1 minute at 8.0
2 minutes at 4.5
Repeat five times.

look of the day

scarlet-johansson-290kate-mara-290-1

these outfits could not be more different and yet similar in that edgy sexiness. Scarlett Johansson in Black head to toe black {Dolce & Gabbana top and cigarette pants} and Kate Mara in bright yellow {asymmetrical-hem Dior dress}. Love these two looks this week!

Happy Weekend

Justin Timberlake comeback track 'Suit & Tie' to sell 350k copies on the first week.jpg

I’ve listened to this song like 15x and I’m still not completely won over. Just because I think the overall sound is cool but its not all that original to me. and might be because i’m waiting for something as fresh and different as ‘sexyback’ which it isn’t. but hey what do I know?! ha! All in all its a cool vibey song BUT whats really great is the music video. it is refreshingly simple and well executed. check it out here.

let’s get crazy classic this weekend! ya dig?! looking forward to: a white manicure & getting crafty making and shipping long over due birthday cards.

Happy weekend!
