Benson tells Health that her typical workouts include a lot of leg exercises. "Probably squats — and not for my butt but for my legs. We usually do circuit training, so I'll do 25 squats, then I'll run back and forth, and then I'll do lunges to the other side of the gym both ways, run, then squats. I can't move for days!"

Benson revealed to Health that she has been told to lose weight for certain roles, however, she says that she doesn't feel pressure to do so. She says that she just focuses on being healthy, no matter what size she is. "I don't want to lose 20 pounds, because I don't need to…There was a point where it was getting to where a size 2 was great. I'm a size 2, but I think that a size 4 is healthy. I think that all of these sizes are healthy."


She Feels Good When She Works Out
