Ashlee Simpson's in L.O.V.E. with Working Out

Ashlee Simpson's in L.O.V.E. with Working Out

Lately when the name Ashlee Simpson comes to mind it's followed by engagement talk or pregnancy rumors, so I found it refreshing to read that Shape sat down with her and talked about her exercise regimen. Ashley fully credits her toned bod to her trainer, who also helped sister Jessica get ready for her Daisy Duke role. Here are highlights:

Over the past year, Ashlee's seen a real change in her body. "I started working out more, which really helped me tone up," she says. She ramped up her exercise routine with L.A. celebrity trainer Mike Alexander. With two or three one-hour sessions per week, Ashlee is achieving her goal of having a powerful yet feminine body. "Exercising makes me feel stronger and sexier," she says. "It just makes my whole day better. I have more energy to perform, my head is clearer — which helps me write my lyrics — and I sleep better. What more can you ask for?"

Her trainer gives us a sample of Ashlee's at home workout that you can modify to do at your home so


The two usually work out at Ashlee's home, where she has a treadmill, an elliptical, and dumbbells. "I love it when my arms are toned, so we use weights to target them — and we do lunges to give my small butt more shape," she says. Alexander also devises moves that don't require any tools but do utilize Ashlee's surroundings. "Her backyard has about 30 to 40 steps, so I have her jog down, do lunges for the length of the pool, jog back up the stairs, then do a set of squats," he explains. It's the kind of workout you can easily modify depending on where you are because hotels, office buildings, and homes usually have stairs.

Actually. Two things: In a recent Glamour or Cosmo she bragged about how she doesnt exercise and eats lots of junk food. Also, she is a pill popper and a lush. I know this for a fact. Yeah, shes real admirable. Superficially, I'm intrigued (same with Nicole Richie) argh ^_^

Good for her! it's so great to see people working out using common everyday things. It just proves that you don't need all that fancy stuff to get a good workout in to help your body physically and emotionally. I love my trainer and plan on being with him for a while! I've seen great results in only 4 weeks so I can imagine what I'll see this time next year!
