Jessie James Decker Shares Swimsuit Photo Saying "I Love You"

Here are her go-to workout tips

Jessie James Decker is showing off her baby bump in a bathing suit. In a new social media post the country singer flaunts her growing bump in a swimsuit while enjoying her babymoon. "I love you so much sweet baby," she captioned the Instagram Story with her 4.3 million followers. How does the country star stay in shape? Celebwell rounded up her top workout tips. 


Lift Weights


Jessie attributes her lean and strong body to weight lifting. "I work out 3 to 4 times a week and they pretty much look like this with certain variations whether we're doing more upper body or lower body," she revealed in an Instagram post. Her typical workout session starts with 30 seconds of jump rope, continuing on to high-knee running, ankle grabs, high kicks, lunges and lateral lunges, spinal rotations, and tension squats. Next up? Overhead squats with resistance bands, medicine ball slams and tosses, medicine ball chest passes, medicine ball sit-up tosses, resistance band pulls, deadlifts, step-down exercises, weighted overhead presses, inverted rows, bent over kettlebell rows, weight plate steering wheel exercises, dumbbell rotations, and box jumps. 


Only Spend 45-Minutes Max Working Out


According to Jessie, you don't need to spend more than 45 minutes working out. "I went to the gym for 30 minutes, and I ran a mile," she told CMT. "I lifted some weights, and that's it." Her biggest tip? "Carve out 30 to 45 minutes of time. At the end of the day, 45-minutes is really not that much of your time," she continued. " I don't love the excuses people provide, 'I don't have time to work out,' or 'I don't need it.' You have time to get a good workout in. Just do it. There are YouTube videos that I will watch. There's such a variety."


Do Stairmaster Cardio

Decker encourages climbing stairs. "I love the StairMaster," she revealed on Instagram. Another butt-shaping move she likes? "Lunges are key, I do 100 at a time," she said


Take a Walk

Jessie makes sure to get her steps in. "I love nice long walks," she said in the same clip. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.


Do Lots of CoreWork

While she likely isn't doing much ab work while pregnant, her usually toned torso is the result of lots of ab work. "The top of this year I decided to really step it up in the gym! Build more muscle, get my core in order and get stronger!" she wrote in a 2021 Instagram caption. "I know my core will probably never be as strong as it used to be but damn it I'm gonna try! I have goals and I'm not stopping until I'm there."
