Gabrielle Union’s Total Tummy Toner

20130719-120000.jpg

Smokin’ hot actress Gabrielle Union lit the red carpet on fire this week at the ESPY awards alongside boyfriend/NBA player Dwayne Wade. What’s not to envy about her ultra cool confidence and super toned curves — especially in a Zac Posen gown like this?!

The Being Mary Jane star keeps her fantastic figure in check with the help of celebrity life stylist AJ Johnson of the AJ Zone. “She’s got great legs, a cute tight butt, and tight abs,” says Johnson. “The whole package together is hotness!”

You won’t find any arguments here! Now how about telling us how to get a piece of that package? According to Johnson, it’s all about establishing a partnership between food and exercise. One of their favorite toning exercises? Ball Squats, which upgrade the fun factor of regular squats by working in the aid of an exercise ball. With our eye on Union’s discipline (and that hottie beau of hers, Dwyane Wade) we’re resolved to get on the ball, pun intended.

THE MOVE: BALL SQUATS

Ball Squat

 

Standing with feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart, and arms elevated out in front of you at shoulder height, stand against an exercise ball that is against a wall and behind you. Position the ball in your lower back area. With pelvis tucked (to focus on thighs and butt), slowly count to 8 and lower into the deepest squat possible. Keep your back erect with weight in your heels and don’t allow knees to shift forward over toes. This body position is great to help those with lower back and knee injuries or pain. Your aim is to sit deep enough that your butt drops below your knees. Sit in that deep squat position for a slow count of 5, then press back up to another slow count of 5, to the start position. The down and up is 1 set. Beginners repeat for 2 sets of 10 reps, intermediates repeat for 3 sets of 15 reps, and advanced repeat for 4 sets of 25 reps.

NFL player James Ihedibo was spotted showing off his Super Bowl ring at GBK‘s Pre-ESPY’s gifting suite in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Many other athletes and celebrities were in attendance enjoying a fun-filled day of  music, food and luxurious gifts.  The competitive spirit was definitely in the air as attendees took their chance competing in a poker tournament to help raise money for charitable organizations.

Even though former MLB player Jose Canseco says he’s great at playing Holdem’,  he didn’t stand a chance up against Professional poker player Tim Phan. Tim won the tournament, beating out actor Mekhi Phifer in the last round.

The cast of VH1’s new show “Hit The Floor” were reunited at the event including, leading actor McKinley Freeman who seemed to be all smiles with his gifts in hand. Jaguar’s tight end Marcedes Lewis stopped by and showed love and chatted with football Terrell Owens, and Basketball wife/reality star Laura Govan and her husband NBA player Gilbert Arena’s were seen mingling amongst the crowd. Other stars in attendance included Utah Jazz players Demarre Carroll and Trey Burke, Actor Giles Marini and many more.
