Kelly Ripa Voted Best Arms

From Celebrity Diet:

Straight Curl Stand holding a barbell in each hand with palms facing up. Curl barbells toward your chest and back down for one rep. Do three sets of 12 to 15 reps.

The 21s Start as the same exercise above but when you’re in the curl only curl up until arms are parallel to the ground. Do not go all the way up to the chest. Do one set of 21 reps. Then do the exercise again but start at the half-way point and curl all the way up to the chest. Do one set of 21 reps.

Triceps Kickback Holding a dumbbell in one hand, place the opposite knee on a bench. Pull the arm with the dumbbell straight back and up to your side. Then lower back to the starting position. Do three sets of 15 reps.

Put The Argument To Rest

“A new study from the College of New Jersey confirms that pumping iron can make your cardio workout more effective.  Participants who performed an intense weight workout before riding a stationary bike burned more fat during their cardio session than those who pedaled but skipped the weights.  The weight training may trigger fat-buring hormones, scientists speculate.”

Jennifer Garner Looks Amazing

I know she’s had 2 kids…and took her time in taking the weight off…well, Hollywood standards.  But she looks great, almost a little too skinny.  Especially since the camera adds pounds!

Here (from CelebrityDietDoctor.com) is her diet and workout following her second child:

1600 calorie-a-day plan, eating 5-6 times per day

Breakfast Oatmeal or egg white omelet with a side of fresh fruit

Snack Apple slices with almond butter

Lunch Chicken with Mango chutney, steamed veggies and a green salad

Snack Whole wheat Wasa crackers with low-fat cheese

Dinner Grilled salmon in a citrus ginger sauce with asparagus and red-leaf lettuce salad

Beverages Water and an occasional beer or glass of wine.

Workout plan
Jennifer works out 50 minutes, 5 times per week. Prior to her workout, she warms-up with 5-10 minutes of brisk walking on the treadmill.

Day 1 Circuit training concentrating on back, chest, glutes, quads, hamstrings, and abs. Exercise routine includes step-ups, pull-downs, chest presses on a stability ball an reverse lunges.

Day 2 Mat Pilates exercises for core strengthening

Day 3 40 minutes on the treadmill, stationary bike, and elliptical trainer. She ends her cardio routine with a 5 minute abd workout. Some days Jennifer devotes all 40 minutes of cardio to one machine, while on others she spends time on all 3.

Day 4 Circuit training as on Day 1, concentrating on biceps, triceps, hips and shoulders

Day 5 Repeat Day 2

Day 6 Rest and recovery

Notes from her Trainer “If you can only exercise 20 minutes three times a week, you should be strength training – squats, push-ups, lunges, planks,” she explains. “You’ll burn the same amount of calories [as cardio] but you’ll also add lean muscle, which speeds up your metabolism.”
