Jessica Biel has an amazing body. She is a great role model for women who want to get in shape and still look feminine. Her trainer Jason Walsh recently revealed her workout in People magazine...showing how she manages to get such an incredible body.
Were you lucky enough to see Jessica Biel in the movie Blade 3? If you did, you may have seen fitness perfection. Seriously...Jessica looked amazing in that movie. As a side note, Ryan Reynolds got in amazing shape as well. The great thing about Jessica Biel is that she manages to stay in amazing shape without losing her femininity.
Here is an Outline of Jessica Biel's Workout, With My Comments
1) Cardio...for her cardio she likes to do Interval Training. Here is how she structures this. First of all, she jogs for a 1/2 mile to warm up. After her warm up, she gets ready to begin the intervals. Her intervals consist of 6 sprints with a short rest of 30-60 seconds in between. She sprints for two sets of 200 meter sprints, two sets of 150 meter sprints, and two sets of 100 meter sprints.
My Comments: This is the best form of cardio to really burn stubborn body fat quickly. High Intensity Interval Training has been shown to burn significantly more body fat than steady state aerobics.
2) Plyometrics..."These hurt," says Walsh of stair jumping. "Even athletes hate them. After Jessica did these the first time, she would've punched me if she had the energy." How-to: Jump from the bottom step of a flight of at least 20 stairs to the third. Keep going, skipping a stair each jump.
My Comments: Plyometrics are an athletic way to tone the body. I believe that athletes have better looking bodies than people who only spend their time in the gym. I understand why her trainer, Jason Walsh, would recommend them.
3) Weight Training..."We tend to use lighter weights and do more reps," he says. "We keep moving, so it becomes a cardio workout too."
My Comments: This type of circuit training is endorsed in the book, Turbulence Training, by Craig Ballantyne. You can burn a lot of body fat if you perform resistance exercise in a specific manner. Craig doesn't even believe in doing cardio! Jessica Biel does Turbulence Training along with cardio.
4) For the Abs..."Hanging leg raises don't build a six-pack, but they flatten," says Walsh. "Jessica hates them, but she powers through!" They also do the Russian Twist. Sit down and lean back slightly. Hold a 5-lb. medicine ball and twist from side to side, 15 twists per side, three reps.
My Comments: I don't recommend hanging leg raises, because I believe it shortens the hip flexors too much and pulls the pelvis out of alignment. I am a big believer in an exercise called planks. They will do wonders for the abs.
Summary...Jessica Biel's Workout is very similar to a high level athlete. It makes sense that she would have a better looking body than most other actresses in Hollywood...she is training at a higher level. Her approach is intense interval workouts, which have proven time and time again to burn more body fat than "slow and steady" types of workouts. No wonder why she looks so good!
