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!
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.

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 5.5
1 minute at 6.0
1 minute at 6.5
1 minute at 7.0
1 minute at 7.5
