Katherine Heigl, the star of the movie “The Ugly Truth” and Grey’s Anatomy looks great. She uses different exercise routines and pays close attention to her diet. Here are some of her secrets:
According to eHow, these are the things that anyone can do to get a body like Katherine Heigl:
Fitness Tip 1 – Stick to the 5-Factor Diet system just like the actress. The program uses smaller and healthier meals and snacks to help users lose weight and keep it off.
Fitness Tip 2 – Use cardio training to get your body in top shape fast. Heigl uses cardio in almost every workout throughout the week.
Fitness Tip 3 – Add circuit training to your list of activities. This fitness strategy works isolated groups of muscles and forces you to work those muscles quickly.
Fitness Tip 4 – Workout at least five days a week and give yourself a break twice a week. This is the same routine the actress followed when preparing herself for a movie role.
Fitness Tip 5 – Limit your workouts to 50 minutes or less to keep your body from feeling fatigued. Heigl works out for no more than 50 minutes every day so she still has energy the next day.
Fitness Tip 6 – Go for a long hike when you don’t feel like working out in the gym. The actress lists hiking as one of her favorite activities.
Sounds simple enough, right? Well, that not all. She also loves to use kettlebells. When the actress heard that trainer Missy Beaver was teaching kettlebell classes on the set of Grey’s Anatomy, she signed up for one~on-one sessions to tone up all over. After a few weeks, Katherine’s arms were more defined, her legs looked leaner, and her abs were firmer. Now, not even scrubs can hide her sexy shape.
KATHERINE HEIGL’S WORKOUT
Three times a week, Katherine does a half-hour session with Beaver that targets all her muscles and burns more calories than regular weight lifting. She warms up with 10 minutes of easy cardio, then performs 6 to 8 sets of exercises with kettlebells (heavy, cannonball-like weights). “I change the moves every time we train,” Beaver says. “It keeps her muscles challenged so she’ll continue to see results.”
When Katherine can’t eke out a full routine, she’ll do a set of 10 kettlebell swings–swinging the weight back and forth–to get her heart rate up.
“She groans when it’s time for the windmill,” Beaver says. “But Katherine loves how defined it makes her look.” Try it Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulders and hold the handle of a 5- to 10-pound kettlebell in right hand next to right shoulder, so weight is resting on forearm. Squat and rise up quickly, pressing weight overhead. Turn feet 45 degrees to the left. Keeping eyes on kettlebell and right arm straight up, bend from the hips to touch left hand to left heel. Tighten abs to return to starting position, keeping right arm locked. Do 5 touches; switch sides to complete set.
