She Hits the Treadmill
Dellanos likes to start her workouts with a treadmill session. "There are many benefits to adding treadmill training into your exercise routine and the convenience of the machine makes it a useful tool in commercial and home gyms," says registered physiotherapist Sam Preston. "It's important to vary the style of your training, as there are different adaptations and responses to each stimulus you apply to the body."
Pasta For a Treat
Dellanos never denies herself delicious pasta, especially when traveling. Not all pasta is created equal when it comes to health, experts say. "Whole grain pasta is lower in calories and contributes more vitamins and minerals than the white, refined equivalent, making it a healthier choice," says registered nutritionist Nicola Shubrook.
Coffee Before Workouts
Dellanos always has coffee before workouts for an energy boost. "There aren't a lot of downsides to drinking moderate amounts of coffee — and in fact, it can have positive effects on your health," says registered dietitian Andrea Dunn, RD. "Surprisingly, coffee is the single best source of antioxidants in the American diet."
Dellanos always includes the rowing machine in her workouts, which expert say is a great way to get cardio. "It's up there in terms of burning calories," says exercise physiologist Chris Dempers. "I'd rank it below running but above an elliptical machine," Dempers says. "There are certain factors that affect how many calories you burn, like your speed, intensity and resistance. But it's still a good workout no matter what."
Squats and Lunges
Dellanos never skips squats and lunges. "Mobility isn't just about your range of motion but how strong you are in specific ranges of motion," says Jake Boly, CSCS. "Squats improve your ability to, well, squat. Repeatedly performing squats train your joints to move through Squats through multiple planes of motion. And adding weight to your squats over time will result in strength at both the bottom and top of a squat. That newfound squat strength carries over everyday life."
