Confirmed! Beyoncé Is Releasing New Music

11/04/2014 AT 10:45 AM EST

The secret is out – sort of!

As speculation swirled over whether or not Beyoncé will be releasing a second surprise album, the singer put the world out of its misery by announcing her plans.

On Nov. 24, she will release Beyoncé Platinum Edition Box Set, which includes six new songs (two never-before-heard – “7/11” and “Ring Off” – and four remixes).

The set will also include the full Beyoncé album – which was released in secret in December – all of the music videos from the album and a mini calendar of the singer, according to the press release.

It will also include a live performance DVD of the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour with commentary and an accompanying photo booklet.

While that is plenty of new material for fans, eyes will still be peeled for a new album dropping this month as well. Over the weekend, a supposed leaked album release confirmation seemed to promise Beyoncé Volume 2 to be available for download on Nov. 14.

One can only hope!

Celebrity Trainer Erin Oprea: One Great Move for Red-Carpet-Ready Arms

As a former U.S. Marine, Erin Oprea is dedicated to fitness. Now a Nashville-based personal trainer with clients like Carrie Underwood, she uses her expertise to help those with busy lives stay fit. Visit her site Oprea Personal Fitness or follow her on Twitter @OpreaFitness. Then come back to every Monday to master a new workout move.

The red carpet season is approaching fast (the CMA Awards are on Wednesday!) and now is the perfect time to start implementing workout routines that focus on sculpting your upper body so that you glow in your strapless gown. Even though you may not be bound for that glitzy awards night, I know that you have your own personal red carpet to walk down, whether it be your wedding (or one for your best friend), a banquet for your favorite charity or even meeting some great friends that you haven’t seen in a long time.You want your body to feel healthy and toned so that when you smile it shows all over!

Remember, it’s not just about this great workout, your nutrition is a huge part in meeting your goals. Cut back on your sugar and alcohol intake now. And a couple days prior to the event, reduce your sodium so water retention and bloating won’t hide all that hard work. Cut back on processed foods such as soups, breads, cheese and frozen meals to help reveal those muscles hidden just below the surface.

Cardio is key as well to this master plan, mix in 2–3 days of high intensity burst exercises such as jump rope, sprints and hill running for the best results.

To make sure you look great in your strapless dress, grab your light set of weights — anywhere from 3 to 8 pounds — and knock out these three arm exercises three times per week.
