How Jessica Biel stays in shape
Washington: Jessica Biel who recently got engaged to Justin Timberlake, has revealed how she maintains her fabulous figure.
The 30-year-old actress, who is a self-described “adrenaline junkie,” doesn’t just stick to the same workout routine.
She takes advantage of the outdoors by biking and hiking regularly including that famous 2009 trip to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
“When you get out into the wilderness and strip [away] all of the stuff in your everyday life, you really gain a great respect for your own life, simply as it is,” Us magazine quoted her as saying about her grueling mountain climb.
“Needing things starts to feel like, Oh, I kind of have everything, don’t I? It’s pretty great,” she said.
The ‘Home Of The Brave’ actress is known for her strength, lean frame, and killer muscles, which she gets through a hardcore, athlete-caliber exercise routine like doing walking lunges to tone her backside, track sprints, weight training, plyometrics, and more.
The star doesn’t only stick to intense workouts but also loves to do yoga twice a week to lengthen her muscles.
“I like to do a couple of yoga classes during the week,” she revealed.
“Yoga for me is more of an elongating thing,” she said.
She indulges in a diet, which is full of healthy fresh foods like complex carbs at the beginning of the day, fruits for snacking, and fish and veggies for dinner.
She’s a firm believer of the scheduled cheat day, where she can indulge and eat whatever she wants without feeling guilty.
“When I’m working and I eat healthily all week, then I give myself one day -- usually Sunday -- when I eat just what I want. You have to, otherwise your mind goes a little nutso,” she added.
