Pippa Middleton shares home workout plan to ‘combat fat’ and ‘burn more calories’ – Express

Pippa Middleton teamed up with Waitrose Magazine to create a 10-week fitness plan. Kate Middleton’s sister leads an extremely active lifestyle and she has shared her tips for looking slim. This week, the British socialite is discussing definition and strength work. She has also included several exercises to help improve your posture. 

The NHS suggests adults (anyone aged 19 to 64) should do some type of physical activity every day. 

A minimum of 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity a week or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity activity a week is recommended. 

The health organisation also suggests spreading the exercises sessions evenly over four or five days a week, or every day if possible. 

They also mention reducing time spent sitting or lying down and advise breaking up long periods of not moving with some activity. 

To add to this, the NHS website explains how strengthening activities – exercises that work all the major muscle groups – should be carried out at least twice a week.

To improve your posture, and strengthen key muscles, Pippa recommends four exercises:

1. Deadlift – targets back and backs of legs 

Stand on a long resistance band, feet hip-width apart and an end in each hand. 

The band should be taut. 

Hinge forwards, keeping your back and legs straight until your chest is almost parallel to the floor. 

Tighten your core, rise to standing and repeat. 

3. One-arm pulldown – works the lats, the outer back muscles and targets bra bulge area 

Hold a resistance band taut overhead. 

Bend your right elbow to lower the hand to shoulder level, then extend the arm back to the start. 

Complete a set (Between 12 and 15 reps) then switch sides.

4. Reverse fly – works the backs of shoulders 

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. 

Grip the mid-section of the band, arms out in front at shoulder level, palms facing down. 

Squeeze your shoulder blades as you draw your arms apart. 

Slowly return and repeat.
