Whether you’re a HIIT junkie or a yogi, whether you like to run or do barre, strength training is a good addition to any workout regime. It’ll improve your fitness, tone your body and increase your ability to burn fat.
Someone who knows this all too well is fitness expert, Anna Victoria who rose to Insta-stardom after developing transformative circuit workout guides: “Fit Body Guides,” a 12 week, downloadable meal and workout plan that guarantees to get you in the best shape of your life. And this week the trainer has just released a brand new guide, “FBG 2.1” that is targeted to women who are already working out, but really want to extend their strength and fitness.
“FBG 2.1 is about taking your workouts to the next level,” she told Sporteluxe. “So many women are getting more and more interested in weights as it’s becoming more known that weights are what give women toned and tight bodies, and FBG 2.1 is designed to do exactly that.” The workouts are moderate in intensity and designed to help followers (specifically women) build strength while toning and tightening their our bodies in the most efficient way possible.
If you’re afraid of getting bulky by following a more full-on weights regimen, Anna Victoria says you shouldn’t worry. “Women don’t have the testosterone levels men do in order to get big and bulky muscle, but it’s a common fear that we will. It can be hard getting over this mental block, but once you do and you go all in for #strongisthenewskinny, you’ll never look back! Strengthening our bodies is empowering, exhilarating, and not to mention it gives us the dream body we’ve always been after but never knew how to achieve,” she explained.
In celebration of her brand new lifting guide, Anna Victoria shared five of her favorite strength training moves. They’ll tone your entire body but particularly fire up the glutes. If you’re new to strength training, it’s important to choose the correct weights before you begin. Once that’s sorted, keep scrolling to try these at home, and then step this way to download the full guide.
