Jessica Biel's Workout

Get the Bod: Jessica Biel's Workout

When I think of fit celebs, Jessica Biel definitely comes to mind. Her toned tush and defined arms are the reason she's won the title of Fitsugar's Fittest Female Celeb two years in a row. If you want to know how she maintains such a strong and feminine physique, her personal trainer Jason Walsh told People magazine about her workouts. Here's what he said:

  • Stretch: Jessica warms up with walking lunges. Jason says, "This stretches the larger leg and glute muscles.”
  • Cardio: She hits the track and jogs for half a mile, then does two 200-meter, 150-meter, and 100-meter sprints. This type of cardio interval training "leans her out," Jason says.
  • Core: “Hanging leg raises don’t build a six-pack, but they flatten,” says Walsh. “Jessica hates them, but she powers through!”

To find out what else Jason Walsh had to say read more!

  • Plyometrics: “These hurt,” says Walsh of stair jumping. “Even athletes hate them. After Jessica did these the first time, she would’ve punched me if she had the energy.”
  • Weight Training: Jason says, “We tend to use lighter weights and do more reps. We keep moving, so it becomes a cardio workout, too.”
  • Waist: Get ready for Seated Russian Twists. Jessica does them holding a five-pound medicine ball. Twist to each side 15 times, and do a total of three sets.
  • Shoulders and biceps: Stand with knees slightly bent. Hold 10-pound dumbbells in each hand. Do a bicep curl and then rotate your hands so your palms face outward, and do a Twisting Dumbbell Press. Then reverse the move until you're back to the starting position. Complete three sets of 10 to 12 reps.

As for her diet, Jessica eats complex carbohydrates such as oatmeal and whole wheat toast with one tablespoon of almond butter in the morning. For dinner she enjoys fish, veggies, and basmati rice. She snacks on fruits like bananas, apples, and strawberries. She doesn't deny herself the foods she craves, and likes to treat herself at the end of the day with something sweet like a piece of dark chocolate.

This has been posted before. lol Her workout seems intense. There is no question, the girl is really fit. She has a great body. But that is not the look for me. I think that her arms are too muscular. She has nice body but her body is not my ideal body. I would prefer someone like Jennifer Aniston or Jessica Alba. They have nice lean bodies and they still have their feminine curves.

She is definitely fit...I heard she was a gymnast when she was young which shows. Good for her, her though is another matter, she is hit or miss on the red carpet most of the time. At the end is a YouTube video about her workout for the movie, I thought Fit was going to talk about this!

I love Jessica's bod. She's muscular but still has boobs and a booty, so I think that makes her feminine. She's definitely one of my favorite celeb bods.

i agree with ashleygaidhlig and lattegoodness. good for her. but not my "ideal" body. and that is not what i think of when i think "feminine". i prefer something leaner, and perhaps daintier. i really like alba, or aniston.

i think its great that she represents a buff body for variety BUT i wouldnt want her masculine plus so many more celebs (& people I know) have better butts than her imo

she has the hottest celeb body imo...I am adding the Russian Twists to my daily routine which is brief but good for me...I stretch for like 10, then about 40 (4 of 10) slow squats using 6 lb weights, 30 walking lunges (3 of 10), 30 slooow side twists with the weights, 40 calf raises, tricep curls (don't count), 100 crunches (5 sets of 20) and then I finish with 45 to 60 jumping jacks...hey, I'm trying and I don't have to go outside to do it lol

I think maybe you do need to calm down a little bit! I am not promoting that we can't have preferences, but why make catty remarks about if we don't personally like someones body type? I just don't think it is neccesary. If you are reading this and have a similar body type as Jessica Beal and you hear these negative comments, that might make you feel self concious about yourself and women already do enough of that self critical thing. What I believe this website is about is promoting healthy lifestyles, not being super critical of other people's bodies. What I am rejecting is one narrow view of what is attractive (the stereotypical stick thin type), which I do not believe is at all intolerant or ridiculous. You may have the right and the ability to call someone mannish if you so chose but I will also speak up about how uneccesary and unhealthy I feel comments like that are.

people that say she looks like a man must be very confused.

Oh Lord, here come the PC police... there's always one of them in the comments page :oy: kclulu, we have a right to not like her body/not want to look like her if we want, just as you have a right to worship her linebacker shoulders. And by rejecting the people that adhere to that "stick skinny standard in Hollywood", aren't you yourself being intolerant and "ridiculous"? I'm not speaking for anyone else, but I never said anything about criticizing the anorexics of Hollywood, be they skeletor or not. Personally, I would love to have Jennifer Aniston's body. She is toned and yet still manages to be feminine. Don't crack on me just because I don't have the same opinions as you do. Lastly, OF COURSE people are going to comment on her body, that's the point of this whole website! If you don't want to read differing viewpoints, I suggest you go do a bunch of leg raises and lunges like your work out guru Jessica Biel. Wow, that was quite a rant... lol :mob: I think I need to eat something and calm down...

My cousin and I have added a few of these moves to our workouts. The hanging leg curls are definitely going to be an addition. Jessica Biel has an awesome body.

I agree Anonymous. It is amazing to me how women can be so critical of other women's bodies. We complain about the stick thin Hollywood standard but when someone breaks that and embraces their shape and is obviously very healthy, we are critical that they are too masculine. Who cares if you don't want to look like that. Until we can accept all types of womens bodies and celebrate that they are all different, we are no better than the ridiculous people in Hollywood who only want a very narrow and partciular body type. And aside from all of that, it is nice to see a female celebrity who isn't afraid to workout hard. She is an actress but also an athlete and she is obviously comfortable in her own skin. Good for her for not being anorexic and being a good role model for girls in terms of body image.

I love her body. She looks like an athlete which I love. She works hard on looking like that, her toned body is amazing - I wish I looked like that. Athletes rule!

That is her body type that makes her look like that. Most people would have to take protein powder to build that much muscle.

She looks like a man. I hope my future husband is in that good-a shape but as for me, I'll keep my soft, southern curves. The men I'm attracted to don't like hard-bodied women anyway.
