Chest Press to Fly
Dan Bowen, NPTI, NASM, a personal trainer and owner of Philadelphia's Hit Fitness, explains that the first exercise in her routine is a chest press into a fly, which is a great move for working your chest.
Step Up with Reverse Lunge
Her next move is a step up with reverse lunge. "It targets your quads and glutes," Bowen explains. "She's holding weight to intensify the burn."
Hip Up on Step
Hough moves on to a hip up on step, "which works your core," Bowen explains.
Overhead Shoulder Press with Band
Next up, is executed sitting down. "She is using a band to do an overhead shoulder press, which targets her shoulders," Bowen explains.
Hough takes a little interlude to show off some of her famous dance moves. "Dance continues to surprise me. Dance strengthens muscles that I didn't even know I had – physically, emotionally and energetically 💪🏼😊✨ I'm feeling so grateful for my daily #KINRGY practice which brings me strength and power – internally and externally! Connecting with the elements and moving intuitively is what it's all about! The more I move, the more I feel myself in #flow and fully expressed," she wrote in a recent Instagram post.
Barbell Core Combination
In the next exercise, "she's using a barbell holding it and bringing the legs up and down, which targets your core again," says Bowen.
Barbell Clean Press and Deadlift
Finally, the last exercise in her sets is a barbell clean press and a deadlift, "which targets hips, shoulders, core, and hamstrings," Bowen explains.
Hough then runs on the treadmill, getting a little cardio in before she does her final end-dance.
