Fresh off her pre-game performance at Super Bowl XLVII, Alicia Keys is ready to wow us again. The 14-time Grammy winner is slated to perform this weekend at the music industry award show and will no doubt be camera-ready thanks to regular workouts with longtime trainer Jeanette Jenkins.
According to Jenkins, Keys credits this multi-tasking move as a great way to tighten up all over. "This is one of the exercises I do while training Alicia to tone her arms, abs, legs and buttocks," says Jenkins. "She doesn't love the exercise but she loves getting the results!" Try it yourself to hit a high note in the privacy of your own living room!

The Move: Stationary Lunge with a Rotation
Holding 3- to 5-pound dumbbells, separate your feet about 3 to 4 feet apart in a split stance with your left foot in front. Lower down into a stationary lunge and bicep curl at the same time. While holding your legs in place, rotate your torso to the left and reach your right arm straight out in front of you and the back arm straight behind you while squeezing your abs tight. Rotate back to the center bringing your arms back in and lower your arms to the side while straightening your legs. Repeat 15 to 20 reps on each side.
