She Does Squats
One of Amber's workouts was a 45 minute circuit with 1 minute squat jumps and 30 seconds of rest. Here's a sample squat: "Stand with the feet a little wider than shoulder-width apart and hold the medicine ball in both hands in front of the chest with the elbows bent. Sit back with the hips and squat down so the hips are below the knees, keeping the ball in front of the chest. Press the feet into the ground to stand up," says ACE Fitness.
She Does an Overhead Press
Amber did an overhead press holding a huge water jug. Try this exercise: Body Weight Squat into shoulder press: 12 reps. For Men Use 10-20lb db's. For Women Use 5-8lb db's. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and toes turned out slightly, and hold a dumbbell in each hand at shoulder height, elbows bent, palms facing you. Sit back with your hips and lower your body as far as you can without rounding your lower back. Push your knees out as you descend and keep your chest up. Once you are in a stable squatting position, press the dumbbells overhead until your arms are straight, then return them to shoulder height. Now, pushing off your heels, straighten your legs as you return to the starting position.
She Does Burpees
Doing burpees: "You're going to feel huge peaks in heart rate — and it's going to happen quickly, given the intensity of the exercise," says exercise physiologist Griffin Nykor, RKin, CPT to the Cleveland Clinic. "You're asking your body to use a lot of energy and a lot of oxygen." "It's not easy," says Nykor. "But it is worth it."
She Does Push Ups
Dr. Michael Joyner says "pushups build muscle strength and can be an easy exercise that you can do at an incline against a table, the kitchen counter or on your knees. But the most important part of staying healthy is staying active," according to the Cleveland Clinic. "Some recent studies have shown that when people go from an inactive or unfit category to a fit category in middle age as a result of exercise training, their health status improves," says Dr. Joyner.
She Uses Battle Ropes
When using battle ropes: "Most of the time, the best grip involves inserting your hand(s) through the loop handles and gripping around the orange covering. This provides a more rope-like feel to the grip and develops more grip strength. It's also a more comfortable grip, as under tension the nylon can be uncomfortable on the skin of the hands," says ACE Fitness.
