Pump It on the Patio Workout | A-List Look With Valerie Waters

Uploaded by LivestrongWoman on 14.09.2012

Hi, I'm Valerie Waters with the A-List Look. And today, we are gonna pump it on the patio.
We're doing this because it's an absolutely gorgeous day out. And when it's like this,
I like to take my workout outdoors. So all you need is a little bit of space, your Valband
Deluxe, and we are ready to go. So let's get started. So I'm gonna start here with my balcony.
And if you're not on a balcony, you can have a chair next to you or something like that.
Or just put your hands here for balance. But we are starting with our Lunge Kick. So you're
gonna step back into a reverse lunge and then you're gonna kick that straight up like that.
So that's 1, and we're going to 10 -- 3, 4. If you've been following along with me for
a little bit, you know that this is one of my favorite exercises. Works your butt. Gets
your heart rate up. That's 8. That's 9. One more, that's 10. Right into the other leg,
no rest. That's 1, 2, 3. That is so good -- 4. Abs are tight, stay tall. Now you wanna make
sure that you're counting along, too, because sometimes when I talk and count I mess up
a little. That's 9. And that's 10. That's so good. We're going right into Standing Hurdler.
So we're gonna go up and around, up and around. That's 2. That's 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. Working
hips. Good. Now, I have to go the other way. So it's up and over. I think when I was designing
this I was a little in Olympic fever or something. Brought back the huddler. That's it, up and
around -- 9 and 10. That's so good. Okay, I'm gonna turn around. Up and around. You
really wanna pick that knee up and get it over. Good, that's 10. Other way. Open it
up. Push it open -- 3, 4, 5, 6. That's 7, 8 and 10. So good. Okay, right into Side Leg
Lift. Here we go: So we're really kind of focusing on hips as our toning. But this whole
workout, you're gonna see, is a little bit sneaky -- you're totally gonna get your heart
rate up. And 10. Other side. My clients have been telling me, lately, how sneaky my workouts
are. It's like you think: Oh, it's not that hard. And then you feel it. It sneaks up on
you. And 10. Now I'm gonna take it to the rear, working the butt. And 1. So I just kinda
lined my heels up. Slight bend in the lifting leg. Soft standing leg -- 7, 8, 9. You gotta
squeeze each one. That was 10. Other side -- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. And I put my hand on
my glute because it helps me make sure I'm activating that muscle and feel it working.
And that was 10. Okay, so now I'm going into a Tricep Push-Up. So my hands are gonna be
a little bit close together, and I'm gonna lift my chest up. I want my shoulders to go
back, not scrunch-up by my ears. I'm gonna drop down. I'm gonna push back and lock out
-- 2. And you want the banister to hit right across the middle of your chest. So either
walk in or walk away if you're not in the right place -- 6, 7. Good, keep going -- 8,
9. Right into a wider grip push-up. And, again, make sure that chest stays lifted. And you're
pushing back through the chest, don't just stick your arms up -- 6, 7. That's 9, one
more. And 10. Okay, so the last exercise is the Two Arm Row. Start with your palms facing
down. And we're gonna row and twist for 10. That's 1, 2. Squeeze those shoulder blades.
This is one of my favorite exercises. I love the way this feels and it's so good for your
posture. Make sure you're lifting your chest, pulling those shoulders back. That's 9, one
more. And 10. That was so good. That should of felt great. So that is the end of the first
circuit. I want you to have a quick sip of water, and you're gonna do the circuit two
more times. And when you are done, you should feel amazing. Thank you so much for being
out here and being with me to pump it on the patio. I am Valerie Waters with the A-List
Look. And just remember: You are just one workout away from a good mood.
