We asked.. you answered!
This weeks MEGA BABE is the one and only.. Jennifer Lopez
The world-famous superstar, best known for her singing, fashion & of course just being the goddess that she is, prioritizes her health above anything else.
Jennifer says that sensible eating, exercising daily and a true desire to stay happy and healthy are the three main ingredients to keeping her in the best shape of her life.
“You got to work out, you got to watch what you eat,” she told Us Magazine. “It’s a job — you’ve got to buckle down.”
“Of course. What you eat doesn’t just affect your body; it can also affect the way your skin looks.”
Despite Jennifer’s jam-packed schedule, she ALWAYS shows up for her body.
Here’s some insight into Jennifer Lopez’ fitness & health routine, revealing the hard work that goes into her enviable, toned figure.
So, we know that Jennifer loves to exercise every day, but how does she get the most out of her workouts?
“First of all, hydrate. Drinking plenty of water, especially before a workout, can help you push harder and get more out of your exercise routine.”
Apart from the obvious benefits of exercise (you know.. reduce your risk of heart disease, sleep better etc) Jennifer swears that exercise is the key to her happiness..
“I am 100 per cent convinced that working out is part of what makes me so happy. Dance has always been a huge part of my life and taking the time to move my body and do something that’s so good for me is key to my happiness. And I really believe that when you take care of yourself and work to stay healthy, you’re better able to take care of those you love. So working out is definitely a priority for me.”, shared Jenifer in a recent interview with HELLO Magazine.
Fair play girl!
We’ve learnt that having a positive mind-set & nurturing your body (having a balanced diet & taking care of yourself) have a big part to play in Jennifer’s health routine, but what about those incredible curves?
“If you want to enhance the shape of your butt, as well as tone and tighten, the most important exercises are squats and lunges,” Peterson (one of Jennifer’s PT’) says. “Be sure to use weights, weights, weights, and weights… and then some weights”.
However, it’s not ALL weights in Jennifer’s workout routines.. “She needs to get her exercise in one hour each day,” says Jennifer’s PT, “30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of muscular structure.”
PT Tracy also reveals that in order for Jenny to keep that seriously toned physique, she can’t go longer than two days without a workout.
(Ok.. so we’ve gone like two years.. that must be where we’re going wrong, right?!)
