A 2-Day Body Tune-Up From Shakira’s Trainer, Anna Kaiser

Anna put together a 2-day tune-up for The New Potato last year. We thought we’d share it again, because everyone can use a little boost now and then. Had an indulgent weekend? Feeling a little off your game? Give this a try!

Up your cardio! Get yourself revved up for the week ahead and burn off some of that extra stress by adding 15 extra minutes into your cardio element this week. Find some fun 10 minute options on my Streaming Membership!

Stop drinking for just two days. Your stomach will flatten, you’ll sleep better, you’ll workout harder, and you’ll lose extra water weight you’ve been hanging on to.

Add this core workout in every day:

1. Hold a plank for 2 minutes.

2. Rock forward and back in plank for 1 minute.

3. Jack your feet out and in while holding a plank for 30 seconds.

4. Hold a side plank on each side for 1 minute.

*Rest and repeat two times through (See if you can do the entire thing without putting your knees down!)

Wake up and have your biggest meal for breakfast! Start now, and continue that all throughout the week. It will set you up with the energy you need to run from event to event without crashing, and your metabolism will burn those extra calories all day long. Then, keep dinner light.

Buy snacks! And take them with you. This is such a good habit to get into. Say no to the cupcakes and endless carbs, because you have some yummy salted almonds in your bag. You’ll stay more alert. Check out these healthy snack ideas from our Nutritive Specialist, Safia Morsly-Fikai.
