Burlesque, starring Christina Aguilera, hits theaters on November 24th, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. In honor of the pop-sensation (and with respect towards your waistline considering the impending damage of the holiday season), I bring you Christina Aguilera’s top-6 workout tips, straight from Glamour magazine!
1. Ladies, Don’t be Afraid of Heavy Weights! Tee Sorge, Christina’s trainer for over three years, says, “Christina does biceps curls with 15-pound dumbbells and chest presses with 20-pounders.” “She knows they’re not going to bulk her up. What they will do is help build lean muscle that kicks up your metabolism and make your body burn more calories each day–so you’ll lose weight faster.”
2. Toss in Some Cardio. “I throw in a minute or two of jumping rope, stair climbing or boxing after every few toning moves Christina does to keep her heart rate up and really maximize the number of calories she burns.”
