Celebrity Fitness: Jessica Alba

I have always been a huge fan of Jessica Alba and even more in recent months after learning about her fitness regime and commitment.  This fit momma knows what it means to be mentally focused in order to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle.  In addition to being an actress she is also the founder of The Honest Company and author of the book Honest Life.  As a new mom, Jessica Alba wanted to create the safest, healthiest environment for her family. She launched The Honest Company, a brand where parents can find reliable information and products that are safe, stylish, and affordable. 

In her book Honest Life She shares strategies for maintaining a clean diet (with favorite family-friendly recipes) and embraces nontoxic choices at home and provides eco-friendly decor tips to fit any budget. Alba also discusses cultivating a daily eco beauty routine, finding one’s personal style without resorting to yoga pants, and engaging in fun, hands-on activities with kids. Her solutions are easy, chic, and down-to-earth: they’re honest. And discovering everyday ways to live naturally and authentically—true to you—could be honestly life-changing.

Jessica's Fitness Routine 

The actress admits “I have a brutally short attention span. It means I’m useless at working out. I get so bored.”  One of the ways she got back into shape after her kids is with celebrity trainer Ramona Braganza's 3-2-1 Baby Bulge Be Gone to get in shape. The diet involves three meals, two snacks and one liter of water per day.

Below is a snippet of Jessica's workout...

Each 40 Min. 3-2-1 Training Workout includes the following routine:

Cardio I – Start with 10 minutes of a warm up. Jog to get warmed up, then speed up your cardio to burn calories.Strength Circuit I – You do either arms, legs, or back for strength training. Doing strength exercises in between cardio bouts burns more calories than doing them alone.

The Jessica Alba workout uses a 2-3 pound dumbbell for her resistance training.

Cardio II – Continue another 10 minutes of cardio training. You can use a treadmill, run outdoors, or even jump rope. If you’re traveling, you can run back and forth, run in place in your hotel room, or even do high-knees.

Strength Circuit II – Here, you again target the same muscle group as the first strength circuit. You do either upper body, lower body, or back strength exercises depending on the day. Again, Jessica uses small dumbbell weights to perform the weight training.

Cardio III – The third cardio set is where you really want to push yourself. By reaching total body exhaustion, this is where the real changes happen.

Core I – Finally, you have reached the end of the cardio/strength training. Now, you do 3 ab exercises to work your core. These exercises focus on balance, as well as, upper and lower abs.
