Fitness Tips From Celebrity Pt Kevin Adams

Personal trainer Kevin Adams (Fame Academy, GMTV) has one of the most ripped bodies outside the Olympic stadium, but it doesn’t come easy.

Days are spent training celebrities. ‘I have to be ready to do whatever move or workout they want, no matter what I’ve already done that day,’ he says.

Kevin is too discreet to name names, but we are talking mega-star A-listers. In his days as a professional dancer, he worked with acts including the Spice Girls and Take That.

And on the rare day when he’s not actually training a star, he keeps himself in tip-top shape with a disciplined fitness routine.

He starts every day (yes, that’s EVERY DAY) with a series of what he calls ‘rolling sets’.

‘First thing in the morning, I drink a glass of water before I get out of bed. Then I literally roll onto the floor and straight into my rolling sets: sit-ups, then plank, then sit-ups, then plank.’

You don’t even want to know how many of these moves Kevin does or how many variations on the plank he performs.

But he recommends that we can follow his example with 20 sit-ups per set and by using a timer to make sure each plank lasts for a consistent period of time.

‘No one should be planking for less than 20 seconds,’ he insists.

More fitness tips from Kevin Adams:

On teeny tiny celebrities: ‘I watched I’m a Celebrity… the other night, where they’re all complaining about not getting enough food to eat. I tell you, compared with some actresses, those guys in the jungle are eating like kings!

‘Getting yourself down to a size zero is not something that anyone normal is going to want to do.’

On keeping it interesting: ‘My clients are always looking for something new. Every time I turn up for a session, they want me to show them new ways to work out. That’s where apps can be really useful if you don’t have a PT.

‘Try MapMyRun if you’re a runner.  Daily Cardio Workout is good because it gives you masses of different moves but you can add your own soundtrack. The Workout Trainer has a really good yoga section, plus moves are split into body parts so you can target different areas on different days. Mix it up, keep it interesting.’

Zest’s favourite fitness apps[1]

On #strongnotskinny: ‘My perfect body for a woman? It’s got to be Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2. She’s got the muscular look just right.’

On playlists: ‘I love a bit of Guns N’ Roses when I’m in the gym. For a long run, I start with ballads – I love them because they help regulate your breathing while you’re getting your stride, rather than starting off hell for leather.’

Zest’s favourite playlists[3]

On working out every day: ‘Even if you’re not doing a whole workout, make sure you do some moves every single day. At home, do step-ups, using either a Reebok Step, or the stairs in your house. Work it for five minutes, doing a double bounce each time – brings an extra burn. My clients love it!

‘At work, do a chair workout: tricep dipsx10 and leg extensions and lifts x10. Sit straight and lean back while you’re doing the leg work to extend your core.’ More desk workout ideas[4][5]

Zest’s best at-home moves[6]

On pre-run warm-ups: ‘Never run without a warm up. It juices up your joints. I always do hip circles to help limber things up.’

Best warm-up moves[7]

How I fuel my run: ‘I eat a banana. That’s all. Doesn’t work for everyone but it works for me.’

Eat right tips from the running chef[8]

On running: ‘I try to get all my clients to run – it’s great for fat burning. Some clients don’t want to – mainly women – so instead we do interval training. After a hard interval training session, many of them decide they’d prefer running!’

How to run and lose weight[9]

On carbs: ‘I don’t lecture on nutrition – everyone is so different. But I will say, don’t go to bed on carbs. You don’t need them when you’re asleep. If you’re eating carbs for supper then going out dancing all night – you’ll burn them off, so OK.’

Kevin recommends the Motorola RAZR i mobile for perfect on-the-go training apps. Gorilla glass keeps the phone safe from scratches, bumps and bangs, while Kevlar and splash coating mean you needn’t worry about the odd tumble or rain shower while you’re training outside.

Find out more about the RAZR i[10]

Particularly useful is the workout mode, that auto-launches relevant functions (that you can personalise) when activated. So no more faffing about before you start a run. For example, you can ensure it switches into playlist, GPS and relevant workout app (such as MapMyRun), engages auto-reply text to missed calls etc to avoid interruptions, and disengages WiFi to extend battery life.

      Hey man,

      You will need to build mental toughness more than anything, but you will learn that once you join.

      you should start out by doing 200-300 push-ups, 200-300 sit-ups, and 50-100 pull-ups everyday. It does not have to be all at once.

      You will need to get your general fitness levels up. The best way to do that is by doing this

      Jumping jacks-30 seconds
      shuffle splits- 30 seconds
      mountain climbers- 30 seconds
      burpess 30 seconds.

      repeat that 3-4 times. Before joining the army you should be doing that for 30 minutes a day.

      That should help you get started. If you have anymore questions, please ask.

      Good luck.

      Fitness Tip 1 :
      Change does not have to be Hard :
      The majority of the fitness tips that you come across nowadays would request you to go for extended exercises in gym and eat only salads in addition to get registered with various elevated priced health clubs. By fitness tips, the majority of us believe that we have to totally change our life-style and thus the majority of us never bother to think about various helpful fitness tips. The terror of abandoning your dietetic habits is one of the obstacles between people and fitness tips.

      Fitness Tip 2 :
      Try to discover the golden signify between over training and concrete, tangible exercises gains and advantages . Calculate carefully the depth, period and frequency of your exercises. You require visible and quick results but a burnout might prove disastrous .

      Fitness Tip 3 :
      No exercises program and no diet will bring long term consequences if you do not make a serious responsibility. Nourish your self motivation and person discipline. Look into the mirror , if your eyes slash and spark at that time you be able to go on. Put Specific Objectives Setting specific goals means that you have to forget going to the fitness center without even knowing the cause you go. For example, set the practical objective of gaining 5 pounds of muscle mass throughout the next couple of months or to improve your bench weight 10 percent. Your exercises, your diet, your supplementation even your brain must be focused on this objective.

    I Want To Lose A Few Kilos But Not A Heap, Dieting And Fitness Tips..? I weigh 58 kilos, and I don’t really want to lose too much weight, maybe 5 or 6 kilos, but I mostly just want to tone up. Do you know any dieting/fitness tips? I’m going to the gym 5 times a week, and on the days I’m not there I’m going for a run. Any tips on what to spend my time on at the gym? Thank you x

      Dear Isy,

      One thing you need to understand is that you have to work hard if you want to change the shape of your body. That means a balance of medium-high intensity cardio exercise along with challenging strength training workouts.

      For weight loss, you’ll need to get about 5 cardio workouts each week at a medium-high intensity for at least 30 minutes. If you’re a beginner, it’s best to start slow and work your way up but, if you’re in good condition and have no restrictions, challenging yourself with harder workouts is the best way to burn more calories. Interval training is a good choice because studies show you continue to burn calories even after you’ve stopped exercising.

      In addition to your cardio workouts, you’ll need to lift weights for all your muscle groups at least 2 non-consecutive days a week. And, by lifting weights, that means using enough weight that you can ONLY complete the desired number of reps. For example, if you’re doing 12 bicep curls, you need to use enough weight that you can only do 12 bicep curls and not one more. Most people don’t lift enough weight to really challenge their muscles.

      What you need to engage in is a well balanced all rounded diet with considerable physical exertion over a prolonged time period. Food can be broken down into 5 major groups. These groups are carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals and water. The body needs varying amounts of these types of food so that the adequate amount of nutrients is supplied to the body. A well-balanced diet does not mean an equal amount of each type of food, as our body requires more of some nutrients than others.

      Each type of food plays a significant role in our body but excesses or deficiencies of certain types of food can also harm the body and produce a negative impact on our health.

      It is very important that we know how much of each type of food we are supposed to consume and that we eat in a sensible way. This means eating regular meals at “least” three times a day and drinking plenty of water, but what I would suggest is breaking it down to 5 smaller meals a day and having your last solid meal before 6pm after that you are only allowed to have pure low fat milk a mug or two would be a good idea to cut down on excessive cravings.

      Hope this answers your question.

    How Can I Increase My Metabolic Rate? Which exercise/fitness tips can you give me to increase my metabolic rate? Also if you can explain the science behind it, I would appreciate it.

      -Eat breakfast. You metabolism is slow in the morning becasue you have been fasting all night. Eating breakfast revs it up.
      -Eat 5-6 small meals throughout the day. Same principal, when you go to long without eating your metabolism slows. Eat something at least every 3 hours.
      -Build muscle through resistance training. The more muscle you have the higher your metabolic rate because muscle is active tissue and burns calories even at rest.
      -Drink lots and lots of water. Being sufficiently hydrated makes you body carry out its metabolic processes more effiecintly.
