Maggie Q in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shares Dip Workout Video

Here is her workout and all her other health habits. 

Maggie Q is revealing her short but intense home workout. In a new social media post the 44-year-old star of The Family Star shows off her age-defying body while doing a workout. "I'm convinced our bodies are made to move. Being so sedentary is a new (and scary, honestly) thing! On days when I don't get out on a hike with the dogs or do some kind of quick workout, I can always feel a difference," she wrote in the captioned of the Instagram video. How does the actress manage to look half her age? Celebwell has all the details on her workout and her other health habits. 


Short But Targeted Workouts

"So, here's a bodyweight circuit I did during the midst of a busy day. I shut my laptop, hustle outside, and take 20 minutes to reconnect all my body parts to my brain. The next task I jump to after these little sessions like this one is always the most creative or productive part of my day. (ps – the one-arm body weight rows are tougher than you think!)" Maggie shares in the video, revealing her workout routine. 

  1. 12 tricep dips
  2. 12 one arm body weight row, right arm
  3. 12 one arm body weight row, left arm
  4. 12 toe touch crunches

Rest 1 minute, repeat 3x total


Metabolism-Boosting Food

Maggie's diet focuses around foods that boosts her metabolism. "I've raised my metabolism by being an active person, so I need more food than most people. But people tell me that I don't eat actual food. Like, how do you think I function? I don't put anything into my body but the air that I breathe? I can't tell you the number of people who've said I need to eat a cheeseburger. I'm like, really? I need to eat a cheeseburger? You can eat a cheeseburger and I'll be okay over here," she told Women's Health.


Gut Health


She also "struggled" with gut health. "Whatever brought that on, I couldn't say, but breaking down foods has been a challenge for me even before I knew what that challenge was," Maggie told Thrive magazine. She recently launched her own supplement line, ActivatedYou. "I wanted to create a line of probiotics that had everything I was looking for. In my journey to improve my own health, I became extremely passionate about helping others out of the hole I was in."


Yoga, Strength Training, Hiking

Maggie mixes up her workouts. She does Jason Walsh's Rise Nation method, Katonah Yoga, and hikes with her dogs. "My rescue dogs are my life and hiking with them is probably my favorite form of exercise," she wrote on Qeep Up's site. "We can go for hours and nothing makes them—or me—happier!"


Liquid Nutrients

Maggie has a hack for getting all the nutrients she needs: Plant-based drinks, shots and bowls. Wheatgrass, turmeric, ginger, and lemon shots, blended green juice, smoothies, and acai bowls are some of her go-tos, she revealed to Veg News.  "Wheatgrass. There is nothing like it," she added to Thrive about her shot of choice. 


Plant-Based Diet

"I don't [call myself vegan], because it has become a weird, negative term and people feel very judged by it," Maggie told The Beet. "So I like plant-based better because it's friendlier: It's inclusive. You can't judge people. They have to be where they're at, and you have to accept them for where they are."
