50 Shades of Triple A: Let's look good naked
“Triple A” (abs, arms, and ass) is the name of the game girls. Gunnar Peterson, the Beverly Hills fitness guru, took care of Dakota Johnson's body for six months before and while she was filming 50 Shades Darker. You don't like the 50 Shades Of Grey books / movies? No problem: the workout we will share with you now is amazing though. It's a regimen of combination moves that target what Peterson calls the “Triple A” (abs, arms, and ass). Let's have some insights on Dakota Johnson’s Fifty Shades Darker Workout Routine
50 Shades of Triple A
NEW YORK BOOTY LIFT TRI-FECTOR
- Equipment needed: 2 lb. to 5 lb. weights in each hand
- Muscles worked: Butt, thighs, and arms
- Reps: Three sets of 8 to 12 reps on each leg
Start in a lunge position with a weight in each hand making sure your front knee is directly in line with your heel. Lunge up and down as you do a bicep curl with each movement for a count of 8 or 12. Hold the last rep in the lunge position. Straighten the back leg, lifting the heel off the floor and staying on the ball of the foot. Moving the upper torso only, rock forward and back 8 to 12 times, making sure to keep your back and arms straight without rounding shoulders. Hold the last rep; slowly pull your elbows behind you, and without moving your legs or upper body, do 8 to12 triceps kick-backs. Switch legs and complete full circuit before resting.
PUSH, PULL, KICK-BACK
- Equipment: 2 lb. to 3 lb. weights in each hand
- Muscles targeted: Chest, back, shoulders, triceps (bonus: booty and thighs get a nice burn!)
- Reps: Three sets of 12 reps
Assume a squat position with your legs bent about 45 degrees. Hold a weight in each hand with arms bent so that weights are positioned just in front of your chest, palms facing each other. Extend your arms straight out in front of you, pushing the weights forward. Bend your elbows, squeeze your shoulder blades together, and pull the weights back to either side of your chest. Straighten your arms out behind you.
- Equipment needed: Chair
- Muscles worked: Glute and hips
- Reps: Three sets of 12 reps on each leg
Stand with feet hip-width apart, lean forward from your hips and grasp the back of the chair so that your back is flat and parallel to the floor. Raise and extend your right leg straight out behind you, allowing your left leg to bend slightly. Pulse your right leg up and down 12 times. Pull your right knee to your chest and then extend the leg back out 12 times. Bend right leg so your knees are in line and your right shin parallel to the floor. Lift your bent right leg out to the side, extending it straight out at the top of the lift. Lower, and repeat 12 times. Switch legs.
