Carrie Underwood’s 5 Favorite Workout Types
According to PopSugar, the following are Carrie’s preferred workouts that she relies on while on tour and at home.
1) Tabata: A workout that combines 20 seconds of intense bursts with 10 seconds of rest in four-minute rounds. A short and effective workout that is perfect for a busy schedule. The web is full of Tabata sequence printouts and videos spanning from 8 minute to 40 minute increments.
2) Leg Circuits: Carrie Underwood’s toned legs can be partially attributed to this routine which strengthen your legs and bottom. A combination of squats, lunges, and deadlifts with small weights is key. Check out useful tips from Carrie’s own personal trainer Erin Oprea below.
3) Running: Running or even going for a jog or a walk is a great way to get outside. Hills do wonders for the backside and thighs!
4) Bodyweight Workouts: Carrie often incorporates bodyweight workouts while on the road because you don’t need to worry about equipment. She’s all about planks, lunges, and crunches. Bodyweight workouts are abundant via YouTube and are a source for helpful pointers.
5) Boxing: You don’t need access to a boxing gym. At-home boxing videos are quick and effective too. If you don’t have access to light weights either, try equipment-free Cardio Tai Boxing.
