Oh man, what's not to love about Beyoncé? She's a talented actress, has a curvy body we love, and has a knack for delivering some of the best music to work out to. We're excited that Beyoncé is leading the pack in Grammy nominations and can't wait to see her on the red carpet! In our last installment of Get the Bod, Grammys edition, we'll be taking a look at what Jay-Z's girl does to stay fit and healthy, and how she'll most likely be preparing for her big night out.
At the core of Beyoncé's workout regimen is trainer Marco Borges's Power Moves system. The concept is that you work several muscle groups at once, doing exercises like reverse lunge presses, dumbbell front squats, and jumping lunges. Borges revealed that to get Beyoncé in shape for her Summer tour, the singer did "interval training — 45 minutes of alternating between sprinting and running on the treadmill, followed by body-resistance work." During the tour, Beyoncé did yoga and Pilates for an hour on show days and body-resistance exercises on days when she’s not performing.
To hear what Beyoncé has to say about staying healthy,
Beyoncé admits that staying fit is hard work and that although it involves a disciplined diet and rigorous fitness routine, the true motivation comes from within.
"The truth is, it's a lot of sacrifice. It's more about your mental strength than physical strength. You have to push yourself. It doesn't matter what trainer you have. And it doesn't matter what program you're on. You have to be healthy and make the right choices."
With her tour over, the star continues to focus on cardio — running up to six miles a day — and strength training. She also sticks to a sensible 1,600-calorie diet of lean protein and healthy carbs. As for the night of the Grammys, we won't be surprised if Ms. Knowles will be doing this preparty body blasting workout designed by Borges.
