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.
