Pump It on the Patio Workout | A-List Look With Valerie Waters
Hi, I’m Valerie Waters with the A-List Look.
And today, we are gonna pump it on the patio. We’re doing this because it’s an absolutely
gorgeous day out. And when it’s like this, I like to take my workout outdoors. So all
you need is a little bit of space, your Valband Deluxe, and we are ready to go. So let’s get
started. So I’m gonna start here with my balcony. And if you’re not on a balcony, you can have
a chair next to you or something like that. Or just put your hands here for balance. But
we are starting with our Lunge Kick. So you’re gonna step back into a reverse lunge and then
you’re gonna kick that straight up like that. So that’s 1, and we’re going to 10 — 3, 4.
If you’ve been following along with me for a little bit, you know that this is one of
my favorite exercises. Works your butt. Gets your heart rate up. That’s 8. That’s 9. One
more, that’s 10. Right into the other leg, no rest. That’s 1, 2, 3. That is so good — 4.
Abs are tight, stay tall. Now you wanna make sure that you’re counting along, too, because
sometimes when I talk and count I mess up a little. That’s 9. And that’s 10. That’s
so good. We’re going right into Standing Hurdler. So we’re gonna go up and around, up and around.
That’s 2. That’s 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. Working hips. Good. Now, I have to go the other way.
So it’s up and over. I think when I was designing this I was a little in Olympic fever or something.
Brought back the huddler. That’s it, up and around — 9 and 10. That’s so good. Okay,
I’m gonna turn around. Up and around. You really wanna pick that knee up and get it
over. Good, that’s 10. Other way. Open it up. Push it open — 3, 4, 5, 6. That’s 7,
8 and 10. So good. Okay, right into Side Leg Lift. Here we go: So we’re really kind of
focusing on hips as our toning. But this whole workout, you’re gonna see, is a little bit
sneaky — you’re totally gonna get your heart rate up. And 10. Other side. My clients have
been telling me, lately, how sneaky my workouts are. It’s like you think: Oh, it’s not that
hard. And then you feel it. It sneaks up on you. And 10. Now I’m gonna take it to the
rear, working the butt. And 1. So I just kinda lined my heels up. Slight bend in the lifting
leg. Soft standing leg — 7, 8, 9. You gotta squeeze each one. That was 10. Other side
— 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. And I put my hand on my glute because it helps me make sure I’m
activating that muscle and feel it working. And that was 10. Okay, so now I’m going into
a Tricep Push-Up. So my hands are gonna be a little bit close together, and I’m gonna
lift my chest up. I want my shoulders to go back, not scrunch-up by my ears. I’m gonna
drop down. I’m gonna push back and lock out — 2. And you want the banister to hit right
across the middle of your chest. So either walk in or walk away if you’re not in the
right place — 6, 7. Good, keep going — 8, 9. Right into a wider grip push-up. And, again,
make sure that chest stays lifted. And you’re pushing back through the chest, don’t just
stick your arms up — 6, 7. That’s 9, one more. And 10. Okay, so the last exercise is
the Two Arm Row. Start with your palms facing down. And we’re gonna row and twist for 10.
That’s 1, 2. Squeeze those shoulder blades. This is one of my favorite exercises. I love
the way this feels and it’s so good for your posture. Make sure you’re lifting your chest,
pulling those shoulders back. That’s 9, one more. And 10. That was so good. That should
of felt great. So that is the end of the first circuit. I want you to have a quick sip of
water, and you’re gonna do the circuit two more times. And when you are done, you should
feel amazing. Thank you so much for being out here and being with me to pump it on the
patio. I am Valerie Waters with the A-List Look. And just remember: You are just one
workout away from a good mood.
