Health: Jessica Biel spills the secrets to her incredible rig
Workout weapon Jess spills the secrets to her incredible rig
Strong is the new sexy, and if you’re looking for some fitspo for your pre-summer exercise regimen, look no further than our ultimate girl crush Jessica Biel.
Jess had Instagram frantically googling ‘pistol squats’ after she shared a video of her effortlessly smashing out reps to get her booty ready for the Emmys in September. But don’t pass Jess off as a cardio junkie – the star makes sure to combine intense training with yoga sessions.
‘I spent so many years of my young life playing soccer and jamming my knees, running and sprinting, and so many years as a gymnast gashing my body… I realised, as I got older, I can’t keep this up,’ says Jess.
The 36-year-old mixes up sessions with her personal trainer, Jason Walsh – with the La-based PT revealing it’s all about the legs and booty. ‘We do lots of band work to strengthen the muscles around the hips [and] any and every type of single-leg exercise you can think of,’ Jason explains.
The actress also makes sure to do 20 to 30 minutes of yoga every day, claiming it’s a huge stress reliever in her busy life. ‘In a yoga class, it’s really just your mat – your own practice,’ she says. ‘I’ve never felt, and I don’t feel any sort of physical competition that I think you can sometimes sense in other workout classes.’
Diet-wise, no surprises here, but The Sinner star
tries to eat pretty clean – but not all the time. ‘I mean, of course I have cheat days and will go out and have, like, cookies and pizza,’ Jess spills.
The star, along with hunky husband Justin Timberlake, tries to steer clear of gluten, wheat and dairy, starting the day with paleo coconut pancakes with almond butter, lunching on quinoa salad and chowing down on salmon, grilled greens and rice for dinner.
But that all happily goes out the window when Jess’ three-year-old son, Silas, decides vegies aren’t his thing.
‘Silas is a kid, so sometimes he doesn’t want to eat that broccoli or eat that spinach, so you go, “All right, pasta it is” or “French fries it is,”’ the mum-of-one shares.
