For Beckinsale, working out is an important part of her life. She says that it helps her whenever she's stressed. "I'm very connected to my body, so if I'm going to experience stress, I'm probably going to experience it physically," she tells Women's Health. "So it's usually a good idea for me to go do something physical to get rid of it. I kind of have to think of myself as a horse or something – time for a run around the paddock."

Beckinsale has amazing abs, which means she does a lot of ab workouts. She posted this video on Instagram of herself doing crunches. In it, she is hanging upside down from a set of bars. "Combined flexion/extension with rotation is considered by many to be the most challenging way to use the core, but it is essential. After all, life will make us combine flexion/extension with rotation at some point, so it is advisable to prepare for it. Preparing the body for the most challenging movements in a safe, sensible, controlled way is essential for handling the unpredictable movements life throws at us, such as when we drop a cell phone or if a pet runs into the road, for example," says ACE Fitness.
