Logan Hood served as the trainer for beautiful Malin Akerman. Logan was a former Navy SEAL. See what kind of workout, he made for Malin. Logan said
- Do the workout in threes – Weights, intensity, and volume are the 3 parameters for any kind of workout. So, pay stress on these things one by one. For instance, you can increase the weights and lower the number of reps. Another can be, to lower the weights but increase the number of sets.
- Do pull-ups regularly – Don’t give up while doing pull-ups as these strengthen the biceps, lats, middle back and shoulders.
- Rowing a boat – If possible, spend around 10 minutes before starting your regular training session. This is better than treadmills and stationary bicycle as rowing targets your upper body, core unlike treadmill which engages only your legs. So, your blood flow will improve and you will feel more flexible.
- Circuit Training – Do a circuit training which can include cardio and strength training. This should include exercises like push-ups, rope skipping. Do it for a minute. Then, switch to a set of squats and rope skipping again. Do, alternately cardio and strength training.
- Minimize Refined Carbohydrates – Eat refined carbs, chocolate, cookies, ice-creams, and anything with sugar and corn syrup. This is because when you eat refined carbs, it starts to spike blood sugars, which produces excess insulin and these stores excess fat.
- Eat 5 times a day – Eat 5 times a day – 3 meals and 2 snacks. Snacks can be eaten between lunch and dinner and other one between breakfast and lunch. This will surely stabilize blood sugars and avoid hunger pangs.
- Balanced Diet – Eat a balanced diet. Eat a balance of protein, complex carbohydrates, and fat in every meal. The main benefit of taking high protein is that it contains amino acids which help muscles to recover fast after workouts.
- Limit your liquids – Drink water, if you are thirsty. Drink black coffee, if you need stimulation. Drink Vodka Martini or similar simple drink, if you want to take the edge off. This will help you to avoid mojitos.
