The whole world agrees: Daaaaamn, J. Lo! You look FAB!
It's true though, Jennifer consistently looks b-o-m-b, and one of the reasons is that she's in ridiculous shape for her age (which isn't that old, but compare her to other 43 year olds and you know what we're saying!). She works at it, though, so there's no real hollywood magic behind how she looks in the upcoming Parker (and her upcoming tours!).
In fact, she enlisted one of the top celeb trainers around to make sure she was keepin' it tight: Tracy Anderson!
We think that's a fab idea, as both of them are mommies and understand what it's like to keep fit with all the extra stress of kids!
Here's Tracy's plan for keeping Jennifer where she needs to be:
“When someone’s preparing for tours and giving energy to that many people, they can’t be out of shape. Her workouts have to give her the ability to have endurance for the show. We don’t want to change her sexy body!
“We wanted to design a workout to keep her sexy butt toned! We change the workout every 10 workouts. That’s the secret. We can only stay on a movement every 10 days.”
However Tracy decides for J. Lo to do it, one thing remains constant: 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of muscular structure.
Here's what Tracy has been having her do:
1. Standing Inverted Knee Tuck with Straight back Arabesque Extend – works the butt
a) Start by standing facing the back of a chair. Put hands on back of the chair.
b) Tuck right knee to 90 degree angle and pull leg toward the chair back diagonally to the left side of the chair. Extend the leg to a straight back extended arabesque position, working through the turn out.
c) Body will lean forward over the chair with elbows bent on chair to help extend the leg high.
2. Lean, Tuck, Kick Combo — works the abs
a) Hold the back of a chair with both hands. The non-working leg should be placed back away from chair, and balancing on toe.
b) Pull working leg into chair back keeping body straight and leaning forward. Push body away from the chair, tucking knee into chest by curving the back, then extend leg high to the ceiling as the working hand reaches to touch the ground. Should finish with working leg up in the air and working hand on the floor.
3. Touch the Ground Side Kick — works the outer thigh
a) Face away from the chair. Put both hands on the floor, working leg in attitude resting on the back of the chair behind body.
b) Lift working leg and kick straight out to side parallel. Return to rest position and repeat.
Each move should consist of 30-40 reps per leg. This whole sequence should be done all on the right side and then repeated on the left side.
So, do you wanna look like Jennifer??
Better get to it — these are some fab workout tips straight from Tracy's mouth! It's AT LEAST worth a try, you lazy bums!!
