Screw the scale! These three words are trending, and lifestyle, fitness coach and CEO of “Step It Up With Steph” Stephanie Mansour joins The Doctors to explain why!
Stephanie says this phrase refers to people obtaining their best bodies by focusing on building muscle. She says since muscle is denser than fat, people may actually gain weight on the scale even though they are happier, healthier and more in shape with their body.
Tons of before and after photos posted online demonstrate that the number on the scale isn’t everything! Stephanie says she loves this trend since it is leaving people feeling empowered and not solely focused on being thin as a rail.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon notes that so many people do over-fixate on the scale and it can lead to eating disorders and psychological issues when people weigh themselves multiple times a day. Screw the scale and instead, work on incorporating at least 30 minutes of strength training into your workouts 3 times per week.
Stephanie demonstrates some strength training moves that people can do at home. She combines two exercises into one to get the most bang for your buck! Check out the above video to see how they’re done and as always, please consult a physician before starting any new fitness regimen.
Curtsey lunge + side lift
The curtsey lunge works the standing leg’s thigh, glute and hamstring. Adding the side lift to the exercise will help get a round, plump and firm booty!
Overhead press + side crunch
For this move, Stephanie uses dumbbells but if you don’t have any at home, you can use heavy household items like laundry detergent or a gallon of milk. The overhead press works the upper body while the side crunch whittles the waist.
