Summer Ready Legs with Venus Swirl

It’s summer! Or rather what we in England class as summer and while our weather may be unpredictable I do love being able to bare my legs when I get the chance!

When it comes to beauty I love quick and easy solutions with minimal fuss.It’s a good idea to exfoliate and moisturise after shaving to keep your pins looking great and super soft. Next up you need a good razor and shave gel. Personally I love that I can just use the Venus With A Touch Of Olay Violet Swirl Shave Gel with my Venus Swirl razor and I’m good to go. I’m pretty much a brand loyalist in most products so its great that Venus have partnered with another great brand Olay on the gel.  (I’ve actually been using the Shave Gel since February when I picked it up at The Apartment and it really just feels soo good on my skin I also love that it turns from a gel to a foam once you put it on, magic ha!!)

To celebrate the newVenus Swirl razor which #moveslikenoother (named for its FlexiBall technology essential the razor pivots and actually moves around your contours- good news for clutzes like me I’m less likely to nick myself and I get a flawless shave.), Venus has partnered with the hottest fitness network ClassPass, and it’s in-demand studio GymClass, to inspire us to move like no other so our legs are summer-ready. Andrea and I headed down to work out with megababe Helle.

As much as I love running it’s easy to get stuck doing the same things all the time so it was great to try out a new workout and I’m sharing my favourite move with you below. You can even do this at home so no excuses and your legs with thank you.

 

The Move : Venus Swirl Dumbbell Punch

·         Take a dumbbell in each hand, test your strength with a larger weight

·         Perch at the end of a bench to stretch and work your calves at the same time

·         Make a punching action pushing one dumbbell forward, keeping the other close to your chest

·         Return this arm and repeat on the other side

·         Repeat until each side has 10-12 reps

Results: This is a fat burning exercise, working the arms and toning the calves
