She Takes Barre Classes

Alba makes exercise a priority. Her go-to workout? Barre. "Barre helps strengthen and tone your muscles without increasing bulk, and it improves your posture. It also increases cardiovascular endurance and metabolism, which helps to quickly burn calories. Regular barre workouts can increase your bone density, which can help prevent conditions like osteoporosis," explains Barre studio Physique 57


She Strength Trains

Alba also strength trains. "Back to training," she captioned a recent post, adding that she lifts weights for her mind as much as her body. "Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints," says Harvard Health. "Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage."


She Rides Bikes

Alba also enjoys riding bikes. The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis. 


She Walks Her Dogs

Alba is the proud owner of dogs, which she walks regularly. 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.


She Reads

Alba relaxes by picking up a book. "Read: Leaning on an invisible web that brings strength, dreams, culture and, now more than ever, allows you to travel without leaving home," she captioned a post. One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals.
