Go for a Run


"I run a lot," Britney recently told fans on Instagram. Whether you hop on a treadmill or hit the pavement, running is a great workout, per Harvard Health. A 155 pound person running at 10 MPH can burn a whopping 562 calories in 30 minutes. Also, according to research it helps build muscle, lowers your risk of heart disease, improves your sleep, and may even promote longevity. 


Eat Clean


In the same Insta post, Britney revealed that she tries to "eat clean" and be "mindful" with her food. What does clean eating entail? It usually involves avoiding anything processed, like white flour and sugar, and focusing on unprocessed, and wholesome foods. 


It's Okay to Cheat


While she eats clean most of the time, she does set aside time for cheating, "like last night when I ate a container of peanuts," she wrote in her post. There are actually benefits to cheat meals, per science. They can help boost your metabolism and ward off feelings of deprivation—improving not only your ability to lose weight, but your ability to stick to your diet plan as well. One 2017 study published in the International Journal of Obesity noted that dieters who took a two-week break from their low-calorie meal plan were more successful in terms of weight loss than those who didn't. 


Be Strong

Britney prefers strength over skininess. After losing a bunch of weight, she recently admitted that she preferred her body to be strong. "I might look better but I felt too vulnerable in my skin being this small," she explained in her post.


Try Boxing

Another way Britney builds strength? Boxing, which Harvard Health maintains is a great way to not only strengthen muscles but improve balance, posture, hand-eye coordination, boost mood and endurance as well as increase alertness. "I started boxing so now I feel stronger too," she admitted. 


Do Yoga


Britney Spears regularly shares videos of her yoga moves on social media. Sometimes, she and her fiancé Sam Asghari even do acro yoga together. "Practicing slow, controlled breathing stimulates the body's vagus nerve, which takes information about the current state of relaxation and relays it to the rest of the body, including the brain. One area affected when the vagal nerve is stimulated is the parasympathic nervous system, which controls the body's rest and digestion functions. The mindful breathing practiced in yoga increases the activity of the parasympathic nervous system. As a result, yoga lowers the heart rate, improves digestion and quality of sleep, and strengthens the immune system. Another benefit is an improved stress level," says the Mayo Clinic.


Dance a Lot


One of the main ways Spears stays fit is by dancing. She captioned one of her most recent videos of herself dancing to Beyonce, "I danced all day yesterday to Beyonce! Project Rose was inspired by her!"


Do Isolated Movements


Spears prefers many reps of small isolated movements over cardio.  "I don't like doing too much cardio," she says on Instagram. "My body has muscle memory, cus I use it be [sic] gymnast and I can bulk up …. so I like isolated movement. The key to my workout is repetition, but that gets boring so I have a booklet I've made with all my favorite exercises. I usually wear headphones …. music takes me away."
