Los Angeles: Actress Jessica Alba has been working hard to get in shape for upcoming film 'Mechanic: Resurrection', says her fitness trainer Michael Margolin.

The 33-year-old mother of two works out two to four times a week for hour-long sessions that focus on high-intensity intervals, reported People magazine.

She is training under Margolin, co-founder of Krav Maga, the Israeli military?s official system of hand-to-hand combat. "It gets you in good shape and you're also learning a skill. It's an effective workout because of the kicking and punching with the resistance of another individual," Margolin said.

Alba works out with Margolin two to four times a week for hour-long sessions that focus on high-intensity interval training. "We start with a warm-up, and then we do intervals. We do a lot of mitt work where she's kicking and punching various targets as strong as she can for a period of time, and then she rests for a period of time. We also mix in medicine balls, kettle bells and some light weights," Margolin added.
