Celebrity trainer Anthony Michael is enthusiastic about his client’s weight loss success. And if you want to try that pre-Thanksgiving feast workout Snooki-style, Michael revealed the secrets.
The workouts involve the concept known as HIIT or high intensity interval training. They are targeted at weight loss, resulting in a boost in calories burned, as well as toning. Snooki even has a weight loss game plan for after the wedding, added Anthony.
“We’ve been doing some high intensity interval training. It’s a type of cardio, it’s very short, you only do it 10-15 minutes. It’s about spiking the heart rate. We’re also doing plyometrics, cardio, etc. Right now it’s all really geared for weight loss, then she wants to focus on lean muscle mass once she’s married.”
Snooki also is following a Paleo-style low carb diet. (Tip to Paleo Mom: You might want to share that crepes recipe with Nicole.)
“I am eating lots of greens, a lot of grilled chicken, salad and some fruits,” said the reality TV star.
