I do a lot of press-ups and weight exercises. If you’re at an advanced level, you can do press-ups on your toes but otherwise, on your knees is fine too. This form of exercise is good because it works your arms, shoulders and chest. I suggest starting with two sets of 15 press-ups, so that’s 30 press-ups in total. For weight exercises, choose a dumbbell that is of suitable weight and do two sets of bicep curls, two sets of shoulder presses, and two sets of tricep dips to work different parts of your arms.” – Sazzy (@sazzyfalak)

“I believe squats are a girl’s best friend, not diamonds! If you want to get toned, start weight training. Although cardio machines are great, they won’t tone you up. I normally do a weight training circuit that was designed by my coach, Benjamin Siong, from Australian Strength Performance. The circuit starts with 10 squats, 10 dips, 10 hamstring curls and 10 pull-ups; I’ll do at least four to five sets with minimal rest in between. Don’t be afraid to lift heavier weights, and watch what you eat too for optimal results.” – Linora (@linoralow)

“I work my back once a week with five to six exercises that target the back muscles. I usually do four sets of pull-ups, weighted back extensions and seated cable rows with minimal rest in between each exercise. I believe that achieving a sexy back isn’t difficult; you just need to focus on your goals.” – Nana (@nanaalhaleq)

 

FAY HOKULANI

GET: HER ROCK-HARD ABS


“I start my workout with a 10-minute warm-up to activate my muscles, then get them moving in different directions using bodyweight exercises such as squats, walking lunges, woodchoppers, and shuffle planks. My favourite exercise, which I do at least once a week, is the barbell deadlift: it works my legs, arms, back and abs. Begin with 15 repetitions, and gradually adjust the weight of the barbell over time until 12 reps is the maximum you can do in good form; repeat three to four times.” – Fay (@fayhokulani)
