The Hollywood Workout
Bobby Strom and Nancy Kennedy were personal trainers to Britney Spears during the Oops I did it again VMAs performance and Slave for you era and released the workout DVD The Hollywood Workout. This DVD includes some of the very moves that Britney Spears performed in her exercise routine.
The DVD has three workouts which all include a warm and a cool down. As I have an ability to bulk I omit the arm exercises (Tracy Anderson has the best non bulking arm exercises) bar the tricep dips as these are actually Tracy approved! I know I’m pretty surprised. And I also omit some of the leg work such as squats and lunges, but all the stomach and chest work is fine, so the break down of the three workouts below is based on if I were to omit the bulking sections:
Chest and Legs
Time: 14 minutes
Areas worked: Chest, legs and stomach
Equipment needed: 1lb & 5kg weights
I use a 1lb weight for the stomach exercises and 5kg weights for the chest exercises (this is how much Britney used). This is a good full body workout that also includes your back. I do all of the moves in this apart from the squat and lunge exercises as I don’t want to bulk my legs up (I’m not being hysterical I’ve always had muscular thighs that bulk up very easily).
Back Bicep and Legs
Time: 10 minutes
Areas worked: Legs and stomach
Equipment needed: None
This is a fun little workout- Bobby and Nancy are hilarious and it’s good that moves are incorporated that challenge your balance and exercise your back.
Shoulders and Triceps
Time: 9 minutes
Area worked: Stomach and arms
Equipment needed: A chair
I skip a lot of these moves as they aren’t “Tracy friendly” movements, such as lunges and some weighted arm moves, however the tricep dips and the ab moves are doable. The ab moves are some that Britney Spears did as part of her workout when Bobby and Nancy were working as her personal trainers.
