Trainer Teddy Bass Shares Cameron Diaz's Exercise Plan

Get the Bod: Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz showed off some serious skin while on the set of Bad Teacher this week. The actress was seen wearing Daisy Dukes and a midriff-baring top that left many of us wondering how she always manages to look so lean and toned. Cameron's longtime trainer Teddy Bass shared with Us Magazine that Cameron uses a mixture of Pilates, cardio, and weight training to stay in shape.

"That seems to be the best combination for women over 30," he explains. "Women need weight — it's great for building the butt. And elongation and smallness is tapped by doing Pilates."

Bass says that he and Cameron hit the gym as "often as possible" and recommends that everyone should incorporate cardio into their routine three to five times a week. If he and Cameron are limited on time, they do 45 minutes of Pilates — using a mat and the Reformer — but if time isn't an issue, Bass adds weights and flexibility training to the routine.

To find out what exercises Cameron does,


When it comes to those gams, Bass says he gives Cameron lots of compound exercises: step-up with a reverse lunge, a squat with a curtsy, or a side-reaching lunge with a side step are a few that Bass and Cameron do together. Besides these moves, glider side lunges, side lunges to curtsy, and narrow squats with overhead press are other ways to build your glutes, hamstings, and quads. While Bass recommends using 20-pound weights for these moves, consider starting off smaller if you're a newbie. What's great about these exercises is that you don't need a gym or a Pilates studio — just a set of weights and some space!

I know it's probably silly to say this now, but I STILL think she's a better match for Justin than Jessica Biel!! :P

I actually didn't even recognize her in the car wash pictures...she actually looks like she's gained weight. Not fat by any means, but definitely heavier than she used to be.

Squats with an overhead press are awesome. Every time I do those, I feel my glutes for days. I, too, wish I had legs that incredibly long. Mine are short. Toned, yes, but very short.

Holy legs! I would kill for legs that long. Alas, I'm cursed with short legs.
