Every year, for 9 days of a festive marathon with Olivier salad and fried chicken, people are actively gaining weight, and then, in a panic, they begin to lose weight and get rid of the achieved results. But a hunger strike will not help here. Only balanced nutrition and competent fitness can save the situation. And in order for the motivation for training to be at the proper level, it is necessary to play sports in pairs.
A new unique set of exercises from the TV presenter, Miss Sport 2012, specialist in the preparation of Olympic national teams, Anna Milyaeva, was developed for training with her soulmate. The peculiarity of this training is that each partner strengthens exactly that muscle group, which is a priority for him.
Anna Milyaeva, Miss Sport 2012, Olympic team training specialist:
- Classes in pairs should not be a mirror image. A girl cannot do the same exercises as a man, even if adjusted for weight. Coming to the hall, representatives of different genders pursue different goals: a man seeks to swing his chest and arms, girls - to strengthen their hips and get rid of the hated sides. That is why in the new set of exercises we have combined paired work on different muscle groups of partners.
A couple for Anna in this complex was her friend - artist and musician Dmitry Kalashnikov, who knows firsthand what regular training and sports results are.
Dmitry Kalashnikov, artist and musician:
- My way of life cannot be called correct. There is no schedule or mode in it. Perhaps, except for fitness - three times a week. And it is the regularity of training that allows me to be in shape. I can admit that frequent visits to the gym have already become a burden, but my job obliges me to maintain my body at the proper level. At the same time, I get real pleasure from fitness if I do not one-on-one with a trainer, but together with my friends. Especially if the friend is a beautiful girl.
