Jessie's workouts are hardcore with a focus on weight training. She starts with 30 seconds of jump rope, high-knee running, ankle grabs, high kicks, lunges and lateral lunges, spinal rotations, and tension squats, which she demonstrated in a recent Instagram video. Next she executes overhead squats with resistance bands, medicine ball slams and tosses, medicine ball chest passes, medicine ball sit-up tosses, resistance band pulls, deadlifts, step-down exercises, weighted overhead presses, inverted rows, bent over kettlebell rows, weight plate steering wheel exercises, dumbbell rotations, and box jumps. "I work out 3 to 4 times a week and they pretty much look like this with certain variations whether we're doing more upper body or lower body," she explained. 


She Follows the 16:8 Fasting Routine, Unofficially

Jessie is an unofficial intermittent faster. She explained to Women's Health that while she doesn't use the term her eating method is very similar to a 16:8 fasting routine. "I eat what I want to eat within that time frame but don't overdo it," she says. "The timing really is important to me."


Her Diet Is Healthy and Protein Packed/slidetitle]

Jessie eats a protein heavy diet. If she does eat breakfast it will be a bowl of oatmeal or toast and coffee with cream. Post-exercise she will fuel up with a protein shake. "For lunch, I will have 4 to 6 ounces chicken salad or chicken over rice," she explained on Instagram. "For dinner, I will either have a lean red meat, like flank steak with vegetables, chili from my book, or the same kind of thing—chicken and rice vegetables or my fit-enchiladas from my first book."

Jessie is a big fan of nutritious frozen meals from Trader Joes. "They are so good if I don't have time to make myself lunch," she told Women's Health. "I get the Indian curry or butter chicken and rice meals, and they are so delicious and filling. I have stashes of them in the freezer in the garage. I never want to run out."


She Doesn't Skip Workouts

Jessie doesn't skip her workouts, even when she is super busy. "Got in at 1:30 am last night from shooting a music video( deets on that coming soon)! But I wasn't about to miss my work out! Gotta get it in!!! Here's some snippets from this morning💪 (also if I'm in charge of the music and Eric doesn't take over, I play @nickelback to get my hyped," she captioned a recent post.
