We were super excited to catch up with Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover model Brooklyn Decker while she was on duty as a spokeswoman for Gillette last week. Besides giving Pop the inside scoop on what it was like to work with Jennifer Aniston in Just Go With It and telling Buzz why she wanted to try acting, the 5-foot-9 svelte beauty also shared with us how she stays so uber-fit and why she leaves the tennis playing to her husband, pro (hottie!) Andy Roddick. Check out what else Brooklyn said about maintaining a healthy life:
PopSugar: How do you stay in shape while traveling?
Brooklyn Decker: It's hard because [gyms in Europe] are a lot smaller . . . so the thing I started doing when I started modeling is I started running. When I travel to all these countries I never get an opportunity to see them because we're working all day long. So for me it was my way to sightsee (oddly enough), and I really got to see a city and still work out while I was doing it. The biggest thing is having that iPod playlist and tuning out, zoning in on yourself, and just running. And you can do that anywhere in the world really. Other than that, I just hope they have a gym and have weights wherever I go!
PS: What do you listen to on your iPod?
BD: Everything from Jay-Z, U2, the Killers . . . I have Taylor Swift, good music and bad music — anything really that has a beat and will keep me moving. Jay-Z and Black Eyed Peas are big ones.
PS: What are your favorite core exercises?
BD: Abs! I do tons of abs. Especially before a shoot, I'll always do a series of abs before. The biggest thing — when you see the biggest difference — is alternating your workout. So for me I'll do straight sit-ups or rotating sit-ups . . . and side crunches. It's all about really mixing it up. The more you mix it up, the more effective the workout is, the less bored you get with it.
