Chontel Duncan in Two-Piece Workout Gear Says "We are Almost There"

Here’s how she stays in shape.

Chontel Duncan is a fitness trainer and influencer with her own app, Neu Fitness. Duncan recently shared a photo of herself and her boyfriend on Instagram. In it, both of them wore workout clothes. Duncan captioned the post, "We are almost there."Β  How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Chontel Duncan stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Jumps Rope

Duncan shared this video on Instagram of herself in the gym. In it, she is seen jumping rope. According to ACE Fitness, jumping rope is a great workout. "Jumping rope can increase the elasticity and resiliency of lower-leg muscles, leading to a reduced risk of lower-leg injuries. Calf raises can strengthen the lower leg, but if the muscle tissue becomes too tight it could increase the risk of a number of lower-leg injuries including achilles tendon strain or plantar fasciitis. Jumping rope regularly strengthens the calf muscles and improves the elasticity of the surrounding tendons and fascia. To increase elasticity, try to land on the ball of the foot first, but let your heels go all of the way down to the ground."


She Uses A Rowing Machine

In the Instagram post, Duncan is also seen using a rowing machine at the gym. The Cleveland Clinic states that using a rowing machine has a lot of benefits. "Your abdominal muscles, lower back, obliques, glutes and hamstrings all get a workout during a session on a rowing machine. If you follow proper form, your core will be engaged during every single step of the rowing process. Strengthening those muscles is also key to maintaining stability and building speed."


She Works Her Glutes

Duncan makes sure to do workouts that work her glutes. She shared her favorites in this Instagram video. She captioned the post, "Here are some low-impact favorites to wake up the toosh before you work out!πŸ‘ AIR SQUATS (slow and controlled, time under tension). πŸ‘ DEFICIT DOUBLE PULSE ALTERNATING REVERSE LUNGES (yes, it's a mouthful). πŸ‘ GOOD MORNINGS (slow and with light weight, if any). πŸ‘ WEIGHTED DOUBLE PULSE SQUATS (keep it light and focus on depth). I like to do 15 reps of each for 2 rounds. These are just a few of my go-to moves. Stay tuned for more on my app coming soon!"


She Does Ladder Workouts

Duncan likes to do ladder workouts, which are workouts that increase in difficulty, amount of repetitions, or duration. Duncan shared this video of herself doing ladder workouts in the gym. She captioned the post, "Why I love Ladder workouts? Progressive structure, versatility, scaleability and variety. You will find various types of exercises such as weightlifting, (eg squats, bench), bodyweight exercises &/or cardio exercises. It's suitable for all fitness levels, as the starting point and increments can be adjusted based on individual capability. I personally find I see benefits such as improved endurance & strength, mental toughness & caloric burn. And with this I can easily adjust to target different fitness goals, such as hypertrophy, endurance, or cardiovascular health."


She Does Pull-Ups

Duncan is working on improving her pull-ups. She documented her progress on Instagram. Duncan shared this video on Instagram of herself doing them in the gym. She captioned the post, "The update no one asked for: Attempted my max wide grip over hand pull up. Managed 10 in my first set. Thinking I should set myself a goal to hit 14 strict reps…. (For shits and gigs)."
