Okay everyone, I have a new workout program to share with you!
It is called the Train Like an Angel program from Victoria’s Secret. Yes, the same VS company that produces sexy lingerie and also who sponsors an incredible Fashion Show each year.
With the show only being about a month away, the company released a program sharing workouts, nutritional tips and behind the scene exclusives on how their runway models get in shape for it.
Yesterday, I re-tweeted the first workout I have seen on this program via Shape.com. After watching the video, I jotted down the workout and wanted to try it out for myself. I was a little sore from working my lower body out the day before, so an arm workout seemed right up my alley for the day.
Since our resistance bands are conveniently packed away with the rest of our house in storage right now, I decided to use the five pound dumbbells in the hotel gym. I would have loved to use tens instead, but my selection was slim. Even with a light weight, my arms began to burn at the end with the rotational pulls.

Nice work, VSX trainers!
Feeling good, I finished off my time at the gym with thirty minutes on the elliptical. Gosh, it has been ages since I have used that machine! Trying to get back into the swing of things, I went for three miles, changing up the resistance every so often. Next time I will be sure to share a clear workout with you!
For now, here is an easy way to keep the VS Runway Arms Workout handy.
*Please note: the second set of bicep curls are done to the side (changing up the angle).
After I got back to my room, I grabbed a new recovery snack to try. The wonderful folks over at Premier Protein sent me a care package of different shakes and bars to try, and after sharing a photo via Instagram, I received feedback that the chocolate flavor is mighty good.
That is was! I have tried a lot of different chocolate flavored protein shakes in my day, and I really think this one – by far – has been the tastiest. I can not wait to dig into the vanilla flavor tomorrow.
After a quick shower, I finished off lunch with a Healthy Choice Steamer. Living in a hotel, I have been living off of these things lately. Today’s meal was the Rosemary Chicken and Sweet Potatoes.
It tasted way better than it looks in this fuzzy photo. Gotta love hotel lighting!
I am really looking forward to trying out more of the Train Like an Angel workouts! When we finally move into our new condo and settled, I hope to test out an actual program and share my experience with you.
Have a great Tuesday!
