I am obsessed with everything Meghan Markle! She is gorgeous, confident, strong and now – an official member of the Royal Family! I loved watching all the recaps from the Royal Wedding, but what caught my attention the most was how incredibly toned her arms and shoulders looked in her reception dress!
The new Duchess of Sussex is obviously super fit, so I wanted to know what she did to get her Markle "sparkle"! This is what I found:
According to Women's Health Magazine, , her trainer of three years, Craig McNamee, founder of Catalyst Health in Toronto, Canada said he used a high-rep (20 to 25), low-weight strategy to get her fit. He said that because she was always onscreen he focused on her posture. He made it a point to include her glutes, back, and hamstrings in many of her routines in addition to plenty of core work.
Here is a routine that Meghan would do 3-4x a week alongside stretching and some cardio:
1) REAR-FOOT ELEVATED SPLIT SQUAT AND PRESS x 10 ea leg
2) SINGLE-LEG KETTLEBELL DEADLIFT x 15 ea leg
3) PLYO STEP UPS x 15 per leg
4) TRX TRICEPS EXTENSION x 15 reps
5) DOUBLE LEG LIFTS x 15

Here is where I get all of my music! Epidemic Sound:
