Fit for the holidays: Olivia Culpo’s five-move workout you can do anywhere


ABC News(NEW YORK) — Staying in shape during the holidays just got a whole lot easier thanks to Olivia Culpo’s on-the-go workout. This full-body workout, developed by P.volve, includes tons of moves that keep the influencer going through countless parties and dinners. P.volve is a resistance-based, low-impact fitness method with a goal to strengthen, sculpt and energize the entire body. It involves slow, controlled movements to activate hard-to-reach muscles using bands, gliders and light weights. Culpo first learned about P.volve from model Devon Windsor, who did the workouts in preparation for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.Culpo admits that remaining active while traveling can be “really challenging,” but keeping herself accountable helps her stay on track.”If you have a goal that’s important to you, you should just tell the people that you’re with so they can help support you,” she said. Bringing along your own food, cutting portion sizes and booking a hotel with a gym can also prevent unhealthy choices, said P.volve trainer Evan Breed.”Find a workout that does allow you to do it in a smaller space,” Breed said. “And walking, going out and seeing the sights, and getting plenty of sleep and hydrating [are important].” Grab your resistance bands, find space in your hotel or childhood bedroom, and try this simple-yet-effective workout by Culpo and Breed:Move #1: Upper bodyWhat you’ll need: or any resistance band
