Her Trainer Talks
- Stretch – One of her favorite warm-ups is the walking lunge. “This stretches the larger leg and glute muscles,” says Walsh. How-to: With feet together, lunge first with right leg. Bring left foot alongside right. Lunge with left. Do 8-10 per leg.
- Cardio – “It’s the cardio that leans her out,” says Walsh. After a ½-mile jog, they hit the track for two 200-meter, 150-meter and 100-meter sprints.
- Core – “Hanging leg raises don’t build a six-pack, but they flatten,” says Walsh. “Jessica hates them, but she powers through!”
- How-to – Hanging from a high bar or rings, pull knees up slightly above waist. Do three sets of 15 repetitions.
- Biometricks – “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.
- Weight Training – “We tend to use lighter weights and do more reps,” he says. “We keep moving, so it becomes a cardio workout too.” For the waist: They 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.
- For shoulders/biceps – Stand with knees slightly bent. Hold 10-lb. weights in each hand. Curl to chest. Rotate hands, palms face outward. Press overhead together. Do 3 sets of 10-12 reps.
- Body Exercises like a walking lunges and stretching. For her flat stomach she does, hanging leg raises & Russian twists with a 5lb medicine ball, all done while moving for extra cardio benefit.
