It just so happens that when I was at the gym working out today, so were you. I know that we have worked together for quite a while now, and you would probably be right in assuming that I should have learnt a thing or two about lifting weights. Hence you were totally justified in your perplexed expression when you saw me doing seemingly random and unrelated sets of exercises. I felt I should write and explain. You see, I have actually created my own workout which I like to call The Vanity Workout.
|Party Season….time to unleash your inner Goddess!!!|
You know the scene. It's that time of the year again and you have to get frocked up regularly. Well, obviously Big H you don't get frocked up but just play along with me here. I have limited time in a busy day to train and I have a cocktail dress to don this evening……what's the plan of attack?
Well, I decide that firstly I need to do some cardio to make way for the
Tonight….I am wearing a black, beaded, above knee Alannah Hill [google it] with little capped sleeves and a plunging V neck. Thus the muscles requiring attention are my biceps, triceps, calves and abs….not that my dress actually reveals my abs but I don't plan on wearing Bridget Jones style undergarments…and I want a flat stomach.
|The style of my dress was similar to this except unfortunately I didn't look like Alannah Hill while wearing it!|
Now obviously, the vanity workout can be used for any big occasion. You just try on your frock….see what body parts are visible, and work those muscles until they are absolutely pumped.
Now obviously big H, in the interests of balance and symmetry I do realise that this is not a good idea long term, and that all muscle groups deserve equal amounts of love and attention. But before a big night out, and as a one off, The Vanity Workout is the way to go.
I think it could be the next 'big thing'.
