Hi, I'm Valerie Waters with the A-List Look. And today I have for you the Best Travel Workout.
This is an awesome workout that you can do almost anywhere. You just need a pair of Valslides,
a little bit of space, and be ready to work. So when you're ready, let's get started. We
are starting with what I call the Valslide Ice Cutters, and you're gonna feel this in
your butt and your inner thigh -- you're gonna love it. So put your foot right in the middle
of the Valslide, get down low, stick your butt out, keep your weight over the stationary
leg. I'm gonna slide out and around and then I come up. That's 1. We're going to 10. And
2. That's perfect. So we're hitting lots of muscles here, and we're gonna get a good little
power burn while we're at it -- 6. That's perfect. Now if you don't have your Valslides
yet just put a towel down on the wood floor and you'll be able to do the same thing. Or,
almost the same thing. And 10. And I'm going right into the other side. We are not resting.
Here we go. And that's 1, 2. Keep your weight over that stationary leg. Come around and
then come up -- and 6 and 7, 8. Perfect. Abs are tight -- 9. One more. And 10. Well done.
Switch to the other leg, put your foot in the middle again, we're going Valslide Reverse
Lunge. Nice and deep, we're going to 15. 2 -- now if you want, you can do a little reach
forward. That'll -- you'll feel it a little bit more in your butt. The main thing is to
keep your chest up and get nice and low -- 7. Good. You might wanna count along with me
-- sometimes I get messed up -- 9 and 10. So kind of have a pretty good tempo going
here -- 12, 13, 14. Push through that heel of the stationary leg -- 15. That was so good.
Right into the other leg, I want you to feel this in your butt. Take it down, squeeze it
up. That's 1, 2, 3, 4. That's perfect -- 5, 6, 7. Now, if you find that you're wobbling,
just use something for balance until you get used to it. That's 10. Excellent -- 11. Oop,
a little wobble for me -- 12, 13 and 15. That's perfect. And now I need my other Valslide
because we're coming down for an Atomic Push Up. So this is a full body workout here. Coming
down in push up position. Super strong abs, we're gonna pull those knees in for a knee
tuck, then push up. We're gonna do 4 of these -- 2, 3. 5 Upside Down Snow Angels -- 1, 5.
And then we do that again. So in. Notice I get quiet. That means I'm working. And 5 Snow
Angels -- 4 and 5. Now you need the Valslides under your hands. So take them, put them here.
Push up position, we're going Clocks. So we're gonna go 12 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 12 o'clock,
9 o'clock. Good. That's 3 and 3. This is totally core, as I'm sure you can tell when you start
doing it -- 6. Very good. And 7, 8, 8, 9, 9 and 10. So good. Now I want you to come
down to your stomach -- we're gonna hit your lats. We're doing what I call Swimmers. So
press your hands into the Valslide, hold that chest up. It's gonna be hard for me to talk
when I'm faced down, but you're gonna drive the elbows down towards your waist -- 2. So
really pull with your lats -- 3. Going to 20. 10, 10 more. You're creating the resistance
by really dragging your hands and pushing them into the carpet -- 6, 7, 8, 9 and 20.
That was so good. Okay, I want you to take a quick little break, have sip of water. You
are gonna do this circuit two more times and then you will be ready to go play. I'm Valerie
Waters. And remember: You are just one workout away from a good mood.
