Christen Harper in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shares Her Lifting Workout
Christen Harper is starting the year off right – in her workout clothes at the gym. In a few recent social media posts, The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition model shows off her incredible figure in a cropped tank and leggings during a sweat session with Brock Romisch. How does NFL star Jared Goff's fiance keep herself in such amazing shape? Celebwell has the details about her workout.
A Plank to Glute Kickback to Mountain Climber Into a Clamshell
According to Kendra Gamble, HIT Fitness Training, Huntingdon Valley, PA, NPTI Certified Personal Trainer and Nutritional Consultant, the first exercise Harper does is actually multiple movements in one. "A plank, a glute kickback, a mountain climber into a clamshell," she says. She doesn't suggest trying this one at home as it is "too much in one movement," in her opinion.
Her last exercise is a sled pull, according to Gamble. "Just using her upper body instead of lower body, she isn't really using much power for it to be a sled snatch." A sled snatch is a "power exercise, good for the whole body and increasing strength and power in your upper body," she adds.
Another favorite activity of Christen's is riding horses, which boasts both physical and mental health benefits. "Sunset ride to the Hollywood sign," she captioned this image of herself on a ride. According to the American Heart Association, it boosts cardiovascular health, builds core strength, burns calories, and lowers blood pressure.
Aside from gym workouts Christen enjoys regular hikes. Luckily, she has a canine companion to serve as her workout buddy. "Roxie and I have mixed feelings about hikes 🐶 anyone know any good hikes around LA?" she jokingly captioned this Instagram post panting at the top of a trail with her dog. "Hiking is one of the best ways to get exercise. No matter what type of trail you find yourself on, hiking is a great whole-body workout—from head to toe and everything in between," says the National Parks Service. Some of the physical benefits include building stronger muscles and bones, improving your sense of balance, improving your heart health, and decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems. It also offers many mental health benefits, according to a Stanford University study.
Landmine Shoulder Press
In the next video, Harper kneels on the ground and lifts a barbell without any weights on it up and down. According to Gamble the move is called landmine shoulder press. "Those are good," she says. "I make my client do them."
