First TV Show
Emily made her first TV show appearance as herself on the news and talk-show Today in 2016.
While focusing on her arms, legs, butt, and core area, Emily believes that maintaining the right posture is much more crucial than lifting heavier weight. This is why she prefers to do lesser reps and more sets while maintaining a steady speed and controlled movements during her circuit workouts.
She does not focus on building size and instead pays more attention to building a lean and toned core and athletic figure.
In order to kick off her workout session, she begins with warm-up exercises which include knee raise, leg raise, thigh muscle stretches, and crunches. She does 10 reps on the left and follows the same pattern on the right in 1 set. She then ends with ‘crab walks’ while walking 6 steps to the right and 6 steps to the left. For the upper body, Emily does moderate neck, shoulders, and arm stretches.
After warming up, she moves on to doing her full body circuit workout. Emily does not take breaks between each exercise that she performs, allowing her to burn more fat while staying in focus. She performs exercises such as –
- Bicep Curls – 10×10
- Tricep Extensions – 10×10
- V-ups – 20×10
- Kettlebell Swings – 20×10
She believes in eating healthy to extract all the nutrition required by the body and avoids unhealthy processed foods and meals rich in sugar or strict diet plans.
As a part of her diet, she makes sure to intake certain amounts of healthy fats which she thinks are necessary for cellular reformation and the functioning of the brain. She extracts the fat from avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, salmon, nuts, and seeds.
