I’ve tried to defend her against critics, but there’s only so much one can do when faced with a Workouts 101 story that belongs in an era when physical fitness was a brand new concept.
The Daily Mail had a whale of a time mocking Pippa Middleton‘s Waitrose Column on working out, where she doled out gems like “Working harder will increase your metabolic rate, not only during exercise but for a few hours after too,” and “Regular power walks at a moderate-to-high intensity will give you those wonderful endorphins – invaluable to staying positive and crunching calories.”
Girl, you’re shooting yourself in the foot. Why are you telling people that tricep dips are a good way to tone your arms so that they’re ready for summer? They know this!
I have to give it to The Sun‘s Emily Andrews for pointing out the obvious, because this article did Middleton absolutely no favors. It was poorly written, far too obvious and void of any real depth.
How to get a body like Pippa…? Er don’t have a full-time job, don’t have kids, have paid help & a trust fund…!! http://t.co/vCAGf9XmKE
