Candace Cameron Bure reveals her post-DWTS fitness routine
StyleList caught up with Candace to find out how she plans on keeping her new found dancer's body and more!
StyleList (SL): How does it feel to be done with DWTS?
Candace (C): DWTS was everything I was hoping it would be. I'd been a fan of the show for a long time and I was thrilled that this season worked out for me. My personal goal was to not be eliminated until week six, and the fact that I made it to the finale and took the bronze, was amazing. I was so proud of myself and just humbled by the amount of fans that voted me through.
SL: What was your fitness routine before the show?
C: Normally, I'd do cardio and I like weight training/heavy lifting, but I had to stop that because it was was just too much on my body to do it with dancing.
SL: Did your body change at all?
C: I came in fit and I'm glad. That's why people end up losing so much weight. For me, I actually had to increase what I was eating. After the first three weeks I lost about 4-5 pounds, which doesn't sound like a lot but I'm already a small person. My husband and my partner that week Tony Dovolani told me I was looking too thin and needed to eat more. I ended up having a food service that gave me like 1500 calories a day. I made sure to eat it all and by the end, I weighed the same. My body is so much leaner. My waist and arms are a lot smaller.
SL: How do you plan on keeping your dancer body?
C: My goal now is to maintain what I have. I've loved it (dance) so much, I'm going to incorporate dance into my fitness routine. I have to find the right type of dance classes or even cardio barre. I was talking to Mark Ballas and he was saying that I should go to a real dance studio and find a partner. You don't have to compete to learn a routine and he says you'll sweat it out for an hour and be really tired by the end.
