She Does Morning Workouts
At 8:30am, "This is normally the time I give myself to work out. Whether it's on Zoom, doing a workout with my friend Ella in L.A. who leads a kickass workout class called Sculpt With Ella, or with my best friend Bunny who comes over to train me on days when I'm feeling super lazy and need someone to get me motivated, getting physical really starts my day off right. I also love to do yoga, Pilates, or strength training. I like to leave my cardio workout to dancing," she told Refinery29.
She Likes HIIT Workouts
"I try and work out as much as I can," she told Viva magazine back in 2018. "I love doing something that's really fast and quick, like a 15-minute HIIT session which I can do before I start my day. If I've got a really early call time, I don't want to be waking up hours before I need to go and do a workout. So [I do] a high-intensity workout, shower, breakfast, and I'm on my way."
"I love boxing in my spare time," she said, according to Beauty Crew. "I like doing it for fitness [and] I like doing it just to kinda clear my mind. I really enjoy it. I like that it's definitely a full body workout. Since starting boxing I've probably been in the best shape ever. It's also a great stress reliever."
"I love cooking and being surrounded by my favourite people," she told Refinery29. "With all the running around I do for work, it's nice to come home, slow down and connect with the food that nourishes my body and life."
She Does Ab Crunches
"There are many ways to do an abdominal crunch, but proper technique will give you the most benefit. To isolate your abdominal muscles, lie on your back with your knees slightly bent. Make sure your feet are planted firmly on the floor and about hip-width-distance apart. Keep your knees comfortably apart. Fold your arms on your chest and tighten your abdominal muscles. Raise your head and shoulders off of the floor. Hold for three deep breaths, then return to starting position. You'll feel tension in the muscles in your abdomen," says the Mayo Clinic.
She Does Planks
Try a plank with an exercise ball. "The plank is a classic core-strength exercise with the fitness ball:
- Lie on the ball on your stomach, with your feet touching the floor behind the ball. Lean forward until you touch the floor with your hands.
- Walk your hands away from the ball until you feel the ball reach your upper thighs, as shown. Keep your feet suspended above the floor while you balance on your hands and on the ball. Keep your shoulders directly above your hands.
- Tighten your abdominal muscles. Hold for three deep breaths or as long as you can maintain your balance and form.
- Return to the starting position and repeat," says the Mayo Clinic.
This is Her Nighttime Routine
"Once everyone leaves, it's time for a little self-care. I am religious about washing my face and doing my nighttime skincare routine every evening. Even when it's a rehearsal day and I'm not wearing makeup, it is so important to wash the day off. I also use this time to check in with myself and practice gratitude. The past year has been one for the history books, and I'm just so lucky to have fans who have been so supportive of me from the beginning," she told Refinery29.
