Jamie Chung Boxing Workout

Hangover III Star Jamie Chung's Upper Body Builder

Get into the boxing ring with actress Jamie Chung's workout, shared with us by our friends at Self!

Who out there hasn't yet caught a glimpse of Hangover III star Jamie Chung rocking a fantastically form-fitting dress on the red carpet? (If you haven't, here she is! Damn, girl.) Talk about jealous — if we had a body that fit, we'd be sure to let the world know! "It's that combination of being super slender yet strong-looking," says the actress's boxing coach, Mysti Friedman. "She's so petite, but she looks powerful because she works really hard."

Yep, you read that right. Chung's found a way to whittle her waist, work her arms and knock out some aggression — all in one boxing session. Part of her routine? A six-punch combo comprised of jabs, double hooks and uppercuts. With all that twisting and arm extensions, she not only tones her arms, but also works her lats and abs. "She loves boxing," says Friedman. "She's such a little firecracker!" Well, if it'll help us get a body that fit, we're ready to climb in the ring with Chung anytime.

The Move: Six-Punch Sequence

Stand in a classic boxing stance, with left foot forward, feet almost hip-width apart and a slight bend in the knees. Hold your hands between cheeks and chin, with fists clenched. First throw a straight punch with your left hand, then right hand. (That's called a one-two.)

Next, starting with left hand again, throw a punch to the side, with your elbow bent. Your waist will naturally twist while executing this punch. Follow with the right hand; same punch.

Finally, with the left hand, throw a punch upward, over your right shoulder, and follow with the right hand over the left shoulder. Think of these as exaggerated upper cuts. And that, ladies, is the 6 punch combo! Repeat, in rapid fashion, for 3 minutes.
