Jeanette Jenkins is working up a sweat – in her exercise clothes. In a new social media post, Pink's personal trainer shares an at-home workout perfect for those new to exercise. "Total Body Workout!" she exclaimed in the caption of the at-home workout. All you need is a set of light weights – or even no weights at all. Here is everything you need to know about the workout, and a few other tips from the celebrity trainer. 

Do 10 to 15 Reps


Jenkins recommends 10 to 15 reps per exercise. "I'm using 10lbs Dumbbells but if these movements are new for you then I recommend 3-5lbs to start!" she adds. "You can also do it with no weights & it will still be effective!"

Here Are the Exercises

  1. Side Lunge + Single Arm Press
  2. Squat + Overhead Shoulder Press
  3. Push-Up + Side Plank
  4. Sumo Squat + Upright Row + Medial Delts
  5. Triceps Kickbacks + Single Leg Lift
  6. Reverse Lunge Front Kick + Biceps
  7. Standing Oblique Crunch
  8. Back Row + Back Fly + Back Taps

Pay Attention to Diet


"Whether you're looking to burn fat or strengthen your muscles, you must pay attention to your meal plan just as much as your workout plan," Jenkins explained during an interview with Abbott. "In general, most people don't understand how many calories they eat in a day or how many calories they should be eating. If you are trying to burn body fat or slim down, you need to have a calorie negative at the end of the day." The first step? Understanding "what you are eating and how many calories are in your chosen foods," she claims. "There are 3,500 calories in one pound of fat. If you have a calorie negative of -500 a day, you can achieve a calorie negative of -3500 in a week (7 days) to help you burn off 1 pound of fat. It takes time to learn about the food you put in your body, but it's necessary, and that knowledge you gain will remain with you for a lifetime. Also, take time to meal prep. Spending an hour at the beginning of your week planning meals will save time and calories."

Make Sure to Hydrate

Jenkins also emphasizes the importance of being well-hydrated before, during and after exercise. "It would be best if you started well-hydrated before you even get moving. Signs like dark urine color will tell you that you need to up your fluid intake before hitting the gym. During a workout, we activate our sweat glands to help cool down the body, which depletes our internal water levels. Dehydration occurs when fluid losses exceed fluid consumed through both foods and drinks. It can impact everything from athletic performance and muscle recovery to mood, alertness, concentration and short-term memory," she told Abbott.

Don't Dread Diet and Exercise


"Lastly, don't look at exercise and diet as something to dread," says Jenkins. "Healthy living and moving your body are a way of life and don't happen overnight. Most importantly, don't forget a positive attitude. It will set you up for long-term success." And if you enjoyed this article, don't miss This Is Exactly How to Lose Body Fat This Year.
