Eva Longoria in Bathing Suit Enjoys "Sunday"

Here’s how she stays so fit.

Eva Longoria is no stranger to wearing a swimsuit, as she did in a photo she just posted, captioned "Sunday." But it's still jarring to see because usually, she appears to be working. Whether she's acting, making documentaries, selling tequila or touting a new project, this multi-hyphenate never seems to rest. In fact, the same day as the swimsuit photo, she appeared at the premiere of The Gordita Chronicles, a new comedy series on HBO Max, set in 1980s Miami, which she directed. (Zoe Saldaña is a producer.) How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Eva Longoria stays in shape and the photos that prove they work—and to get beach-ready yourself, don't miss these essential 30 Best-Ever Celebrity Bathing Suit Photos!


She Uses a Trampoline For Exercise

Eva uses the trampoline to get a full body workout, often bringing one when she travels and even hosting trampoline parties where other celebrities jump along with her, working up a sweat. According to one study about mini-trampolines: "This research found that mini-trampoline exercise enables a workout sufficient to improve endurance and expend calories," said American Council on Exercise Chief Science Officer Cedric X. Bryant, Ph.D. "We also saw that participants consistently thought the workout was easier than the measured heart rates and oxygen uptake levels, which should likely have a positive impact on long-term exercise adherence."


She Doesn't Skip Leg Day

Eva knows that the biggest muscles in the body are in your legs; build them and you build fat burners. "There are many reasons for keeping the legs strong including reducing fall risk, improving metabolism, and getting out of a chair with more ease. Additionally, according to a British study done on twins, published in 2015, there is also a link between brain health and leg strength," says the Mayo Clinic.


She Does Squats

Try this bodyweight squat: "Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and toes turned out slightly. Sit back with your hips and lower your body as far as you can without rounding your lower back. Push your knees out as you descend and keep your chest up. Pause for a moment and, pushing off your heels, straighten your legs as you return to the starting position. Focus on clenching and engaging your core; this is what supports your form in the squat," says personal trainer Mark Langowski.


She Eats Lean Proteins

"Good sources of protein are poultry (25 grams in 3 ounces) and fish (20 grams in 3 ounces). Those who prefer to avoid meat can try soybeans (20 grams per cup) and legumes like beans, peanuts and chickpeas (about 15 grams per cup). Eggs, Greek yogurt, cheese and tofu are good sources, too," says the Mayo Clinic.


She Eats Her Vegetables

Vegetables provide essential nutrients and key fiber to keep things moving. Try watercress. "People don't always know what to do with watercress, but this cruciferous veggie packs a serious punch. Watercress is a white crunchy veggie that has a mild flavor. Study after study is documenting watercress' amazing benefits. Researchers are studying its potential in reducing smoking carcinogens, turning off breast cancer signals and alleviating physical stress from workouts," says the Mayo Clinic. "Add it to salads or a stir fry, pairs well in Asian cuisine, or place it on top of a beautiful piece of wild fish."
