Jessica Biel's Workout Revealed!

Jessica Biel probably has the best body in Hollywood. Seriously, she is a great role model for women who want to get in shape. Jason Walsh, her personal trainer recently revealed to People Magazine the workout that gives her slim thighs, firm butt, and generally a rocking body!
I want to highlight some of the great techniques that Jessica uses and why her workout is so effective.

Here is a picture of her from the movie Blade 3. As you can see, she has a toned, yet feminine look. It is very important for women to make sure that they don't get too bulky or too ripped…you still want to look like a woman!
So here is a summary of Jessica Biel's Workout (with some comments by yours truly):
1) Cardio…for cardio she does interval training. After jogging for 1/2 a mile to warm up, she does a total of 6 sprints with short rests in between. She sprints for two sets of 200 meter sprints, two sets of 150 meter sprints, and two sets of 100 meter sprints.
My Comments: This is exactly the type of cardio I recommend.Here is an article I wrote on the subject of high intensity interval training…and why it is the way to go for maximum muscle tone.
2) 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.” How-to: Jump from the bottom step of a flight of at least 20 stairs to the third. Keep going, skipping a stair each jump.
My Comments: I am a big believer that athletes have more attractive physiques than bodies only built in the gym. Plyometrics are basically an athletic way to build the body. It makes sense that her trainer would recommend them.
3) Weight Training…“We tend to use lighter weights and do more reps,” he says. “We keep moving, so it becomes a cardio workout too.”
My Comments: This is what Craig Ballantyne, who wrote an excellent book called Turbulence Trainingrecommends. You can basically burn fat like crazy if you do your weight training in a very specific manner.
4) For the Abs…“Hanging leg raises don’t build a six-pack, but they flatten,” says Walsh. “Jessica hates them, but she powers through!” They also do the Russian Twist. Sit down and lean back slightly. Hold a 5-lb. medicine ball and twist from side to side, 15 twists per side, three reps.
My Comments: I don't agree with Jason Walsh here. Craig Ballantyne has a Free video where he explains a superior way to get a flat stomach.
So in Summary…It really looks like Jessica Biel's Workout focuses on interval training both in her approach to cardio as well as her weight training.
