Female Speaker: This video is sponsored by Bally Total Fitness. Get started today with a free seven day guest pass at Ballyfitness.com. Sarah Dussault: Welcome to diet.com video. I'm Sarah Dussault with Karena and Katrina from ToneItUp.com. A few months back, Katrina and I did a video called the fitness models. Tell all about their favorite fitness moves. However, Karena is an actual fitness model, so she is going to be showing us what an actual workout is like for a real fitness model. This is a work that you did for Shape Magazine recently, right? Karena Dawn: Yes, I just sort of did with Shape magazine a couple of weeks before that's you; I really wanted to tighten up really fast. So, what I did was add circuit training to my regular workout routine. I did -- I added about three days per week, 20 minutes of circuit training each day. Sarah Dussault: Of course, I guess now you guys can see having fitness model tones up for their shapes. Karena Dawn: For a circuit training workout we had one resistance move at 20 reps, and then go right into a cardio move for 30 to 60 seconds. It can be a jumping rope, climbing stairs or jumping jacks or even running or a combination of all four. So, our first move is going to be a pushup. Katrina is going to show an advanced version. Katrina Hodgson: I'm going to try. Karena Dawn: Try with her feet elevated on some stairs and Sarah is going to do the modified version with her knees down on the ground alright girls. Katrina Hodgson: Alright, I want to do modified one. Karena Dawn: No. No. No, you're doing. Ready. We're going for 20 reps and go. Good. Make sure your abs are tight, two, one. Alright, let's go and do some cardio. Come on, come on. Okay. We're going right into jump squats. So, our feet at hip distance apart, slight bend in the knee, core always engaged. You're sitting back like you're sitting in a chair, most of your weight is on your heels and you're going to jump up exploring into the air, and then landing. You're doing 20 of these, and of course, Sarah here is doing our modified version where she is not jumping into the air and that's just fine. Ready. Three more two, and one. It's time for 60 seconds of cardio. The next move works your abs, it's one of our favorites, and it's the tone it up tummy tucks. So, we're going to start in a plank position down on the ground and you're going to take your right knee and bend it into your right elbow, and then to the left side. This is a really great move for your obliques; we're doing up to 20 reps, two and three, sign around those stairs ladies. The next resistance moving to our circuit workout, it's a tricep dip, we're going to find a chair or a bench for your sit down on there and for your hands with the side, bring your butt out in front by keeping it close as you can to the bend and you're going to lower your arms on a 90 degree angle and push back up really, really contrasting that tricep. Sarah is doing a beginner version with her knees bend and Katrina has her legs out, it's a little bit more difficult, isn't? Katrina Hodgson: That's good, I can feel it. Karena Dawn: Last one, good job one more set of stairs. Alright, good job ladies, so that was one round of the circuit training, now you got to go back and do all those exercises two more times to complete your 20 minutes, and then that's why a shape model workout. Sarah Dussault: Well, thank you so much Karena for showing us. A real fitness model -- I hope you enjoyed this video, don't forget to subscribe to diet.com, as I'll see you next time.
