Robyn: I'm Robyn Rhino womens day's consumer editor, well I made about fitness expert and womens day contributor Leslie Sansone, who showed me a firming work out that I could do right in the comfort of my own home. Now I really have no excuse. Leslie Sansone: Firming and squatting this is what we are doing, this is one of the most important components for this goal of weight loss, we love to take an individual muscle growth and get it stronger, so you have faster metabolism all day long. Now first thing I like to go right to a large muscles group and that's the chest. What specifically just thinking about our chest muscles, so all you do is extend straight up, push straight up, core muscles is engaged and again we are not just working your chest other muscles are assisting. Now lets get right too the back. Robyn: Okay. Leslie Sansone: And for me I am going to step on this band and in the same position now Robyn is just going to bend the knees a little bit you are going to flex right here, so from the hip flexor I want to you just bend over with the flat back. Robyn: Okay. Leslie Sansone: Go ahead and just hang over with those dumbbells and I am going to pull on these bands so you will pull back and I will pull back same motion that's called a low roll and that is going to just target right in to your back muscles, and remember how important those are to have beautiful posture, and then beautiful posture also make sure waist line with squat illustrate biceps so you've got perfect starting positions for the biceps and for the firm band all we do is just put it under the foot and you curl the arms up, here we go same thing you have resistance with dumbbells and I have got it with the resistance band so all goals is to get leaner smaller get that body fat off strip down to that beautiful long lean muscles, and that's what firming and squatting does. Now what I'm going to do for triceps, now we did in front of the arm you always do the opposing muscle group, and earlier we did chest and back that was the pose now we bicep dive we are going to tricep so I love this one when I am using band or dumbbells I'm simply going to bring my elbows little bit behind me so you've that's exactly what bend the arms and bring all those back, and then I am going to just simply shoot back and extend its just an extension. We call tricep hit back. Robyn: Oh I feel it. Leslie Sansone: Just send the arm and you do feel it. Our biceps are over used so they are over trained, our triceps are under trained and under use that's why they are flapping. Robyn: Always do to workout is we do this say once or once a week may be. Leslie Sansone: You know for strength and that again the strength pose is your firming and squatting and twice a week is a nice, nice commitment but If you want a bump at to three times a week its perfectly safe and it speeds you into your goal, in just a few weeks you cannot believe what strength training or firming and squatting dance again that is our worlds and that's our goal to look firm toned and squat that.
