Glamour magazine has unlocked the secret to getting legs like Carrie Underwood.
Now, call me a skeptic, but in the past, every time I’ve seen an incredibly svelte celebrity in a fashion or beauty or fitness magazine giving me a handful of easy “tips” on how I, too, can achieve their hot body with a few simple crunches or leg lifts, I’ve thought to myself, “Yeah, right!”
And after chuckling, I usually ate a cookie.
We all know just a couple of sit-ups are going to give us abs we can grate cheese on, right?
Wrong. You’ve tried it. I’ve tried it. And still, no abs. At least not at my house.
But I may have to pack my cynicism away in light of Glamour’s latest feature with Underwood and her trainer Erin Oprea. Not only did they get the skinny on Underwood’s workout straight from the source herself, they actually feature the two of them demonstrating the moves for us in a handy online slideshow.
And, ladies, let me just tell you: This is it. This actually is the real “miniskirt-ready legs” workout we’ve all been dying to try in our valiant effort to emulate the look of country music’s most envied gams — the legs of Underwood.
Through a series of squats, lunges, jumps on a Bosu fitness ball, skater hops and one killer kettle bell move known as a “cherry picker,” the fit twosome don’t hold back. They dish the detailed instructions guaranteed to put you right on track to get Underwood’s toned legs by summer.
How can I be so sure, you ask? Because just one evening spent devoting to my … ahem … workout to Underwood’s regimen left me feeling the burn in places I’d never felt it before. I’m not even kidding.
So, guys and gals, should we all join together over the next month and get “Carried” away with Underwood’s hot legs boot camp? I could definitely be in it to win. Hey, I’ll even be your accountability partner, if you’ll be mine.
