Pink: A Bad-Ass on Stage and at the Gym

Pop singer Pink is the January cover girl for Women's Health. In the issue, which hits newsstands Tuesday, she opens up about her relationship with motorcross racer Carey Hart, her lip-synching competition, and how hard she works to look that good. If any of you have seen Pink perform lately, I'm sure you'll back me up when I say that she looks like she's in the best shape of her life. And even though she recently lost 20 pounds and is currently touring, the pop star hasn't strayed from her fitness routine! She said:

  • On her "man abs": "My man abs? They’re pretty full-on. It’s like that D’Angelo video [for "How Does It Feel"]; he’s got that V. I get a lot of flak for it. That’s where the masculine thing comes in, people saying it’s not normal for a girl to have [those]. But I’m OK with it. I think it’s because I was a gymnast for eight years, from ages 4 to 12. My body was made before my bones were fully grown. Gymnasts are short, stocky, muscular powerhouses."

    To find out what else Pink said about keeping fit,

    .

  • How she stays fit on the road:"Ever hear of P90X? My brother and his wife are both in the Air Force; they do marathons and triathlons. I went [to visit them and she’s doing P90X]. I couldn’t keep up with her — and she’d just had her first baby four weeks ago. I was like, This is bullshit! I will perfect this thing! So usually, I wake up and do an hour of cardio, then an hour of P90X or yoga, then a half-hour of warm-up [during show rehearsal]. I do that six days a week.”
  • Her day off: I try to make it a show day so I’m still getting cardio. I have to be able to run up those stairs as many times as I do and be able to sing at the same time. I’m an asthmatic. I have to be on that treadmill singing to get my lungs right."
  • Why she likes working out: "I like results. I like feeling strong. It keeps my mental floor higher."
  • Does she have a trainer?: "No. I don’t work well with trainers. [Air quotes] 'Does not work well with others.'"
  • She knows she’s a 10, right?: "No, no, no!  I feel like a seven and a half!  I’m not going to lie and tell you when I look in the mirror there’s nothing I don’t want to fix. If they figure out how to stretch me and make me a little bit taller, then maybe I’ll get upwards of eight."

Fit - could you tell us more about the P90X thing than the link please? I'd never heard of it before!

Hahah I loved the air quotes bit! It's funny how much sh*t she gets for her "man abs"- the other day one of her music vids came on TV when I was with my friends and immediately all of them (girls, but generally pretty "normal" about that sort of things) started commenting on how ugly her body is (even though they all said they'd like to have muscles like hers) and how unfeminine and aggressive she looks. Was shocking actually, she looks pretty hot to me!

That P90X thing gives you very fast definition results. I don't do it because I'm already 5'10" and look like a beast after I start doing too much plymometric type stuff but recommend it for energy, strength and an overall healthy feel. Pink sounds like she has solid confidence in herself. Love it!

why wasn't she an option for 'fittest celeb'? Granted, Jessica Biel is fit, but her personality is atrocious. I wanna re-vote for Pink.

I agree - it's so refreshing to hear a celebrity say that she works out a TON to look the way she does. I get so sick of the whole, "Oh, I'll take a walk 30 minutes a few times a week." Bull.

atta girl Pink! She clearly works very hard on her body- I like how she was honest about how much time she puts in. P90X is the bomb! But I can't imagine doing an hour of cardio and then an hour to an hour & a half of P90X on top of that!
