Talking about fatty issues, Ashley Graham works round the clock to say goodbye to unwanted fat. Let us have a look at her weight loss plans and strategies. They can be of help to you if you follow them religiously.
Ashley Graham Weight Loss:
Ash is a die-hard advocate when it comes to embracing her curves. But at the same time, she looks after her bod in the gym.
Graham feels her reason of working out is not just to lose weight but feel healthy. She said to InStyle magazine “I like to think of going to the gym as a way to stay strong rather than a way to lose weight. Yes, I model a lot of swimsuits and lingerie, but to me exercising is more about being healthy and feeling good.”
Says Dawin Pena, co founder of the gym The Dogpound in NYC and Ash’s trainer “Ashley is a busy woman…But that doesn’t mean she can’t get in a great workout in a short amount of time. Generally we do weights with a high rep count and some calisthenics in between to get her heart rate up.”
This workout routine made by Dawin Pena gives Ashley extra boost and confidence to say goodbye to pesky fat.
Squats (The Warm-up): Stand in such a way that helps keep your feet wider than hip distance. Your hands need to be right in front of you, when you do this pose. Do the squat until the time your thighs are parallel to the floor. Now return to start. This makes one rep. You need to do 20 reps.
Lunges (The Legs): You need to stand hip-width apart, keeping your hands on your hips. Step ahead and forward with your right leg. Then lower your body till the time your right knee gets bent at 90 degrees. Get back to the starting position and repeat with your left leg. This makes one rep. You need to do 20 reps.
Ball Smash(The Cardio): Stand wide with your feet hip-width apart. At the same time, hold a medicine ball with knees slightly in bent position. Raise the ball so that it goes straight overhead. Using your core, bring your torso and arms to downward position, when you slam the ball on the ground. To do the finish position, aim your torso parallel to the ground, keeping your arms behind you. Do 20 reps of this.
The hugely voluptuous Ashley Graham is a regular at doing workouts in order to maintain her curves. Gym is as crucial to her as bread and butter.
To tone her legs, Ash does hamstrings, quadriceps, and glutes. She also does cycling from Brooklyn to Harlem and then back which makes it around 25+ miles.
And then there are aerobic sessions and high intensity cardio included in her workout itinerary.
Having seen some of the steps of weight and workout plan adopted by Ashley, let us see her dietary habits.
Let us grab a peek into the food and fitness diary of Ashley Graham.
Breakfast: For Ash, green juice a day is the motto. Her favourite blend is lemon, ginger, kale, parsley, apple and beets.
Lunch: A bowl of quinoa and brown rice with vegetables and tahini are just perfect.
Dinner: Nothing in the world can take away baked salmon, sweet potato and arugula salad from Ashley’s dining table.
This obviously means our Ashley is very conscious of her eating policies (as much as her beauty regimen and modelling assignments).
By the way, she does have guilt pleasure when it comes to food and Mac and cheese satiate her suitably.
Talk of Ashley’s favourite healthy snack and it is Rayo de Sol raw, organic, vegan rye bread teamed up with vegan organic Cheezehound blue cheese.
Ash’s signature healthy dish is kale paste pasta sauce along with gluten-free pasta and her go-to healthy drink is “Green Giant” from Juice Press.
While Ashley doesn’t leave a stone unturned to look her beauty best, we are sure she has inspired to opt for a healthy well-being and live a physically fit and glamorous life. Hoping to see more from her, we wish her all the best!
