Jordana Brewster in Black Tights Gear Shares Heavy-Lifting Workout
Jordana Brewster is showing off her strength in a new workout clip. In a recent social media post the Fast & Furious franchise star lifts suit pretty impressive weights – with her hips – while clad in workout gear. "This week was a heavy lift," she captioned the Instagram clip, doing a barbell hip thrust. What else does the actress do to stay in shape? Celebwell has the details on her go-to diet and fitness habits.
"I like working out outside, and I love doing the Santa Monica Stairs; it's one of my favorite things to do because I love the challenge. I love hiking outdoors," Jordana told Popsugar. According to the National Parks Service, the physical benefits of hiking include:
- Building stronger muscles and bones
- Improving your sense of balance
- Improving your heart health
- Decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems
Consistency is key, according to Jordana. "I work out six days a week," she told to Hollywood Life. "I like to change up my workout so I never get bored." She also loves dance fitness. "Once a week, I take a class at Body by Simone," she said. "I love dance classes and body sculpting classes. It's just fun to get in a room and dance and listen to good music."
Jordana also prioritizes exercise, getting her workouts in first thing when she wakes up. "I get up at, like, 5:15 a.m. every morning to run. I like treadmills—it hurts my knees too much to run outside. [My mom] is still a member at [a gym]. She's in her mid-60s, and she works out. So I really got that from her, and I still defer to her," she told Health.
Jordana understands that abs are made in the kitchen "I try to eat as natural as possible, and I try to eat organic," she told Hollywood Life. "I also try to avoid processed food." She also stays away from sugar.
No Smoothies or Juice
Jordana doesn't drink her calories. "I hate smoothies, and I hate juices," she revealed to Health. "I like chewing. So I steam tons of vegetables and add avocado. And then I have soup with chicken or salmon for at least one of my meals. And then I'm getting all my vegetables in one meal, and I don't really have to worry about it after that. So it's about checking in and making sure you're living as balanced a life as possible."
