Weight Lifting

Maryse chooses weight lifting over cardio when it comes to exercise, blasting the common myth. "Women are sometimes afraid they'll get bulky and big, but that's not true," she explained. "You'll get curves and just be lean, very lean. That's the trick. Doing cardio is not really going to help in that way," she told E! News.


HIIT Workouts

"My favorite thing to do is HIIT workouts, or high interval intensity workouts," Maryse told E! News about her workout of choice. "I like to do that because I'm not really a cardio person. HIIT is basically working your entire body, and it's burning [calories] for about eight to 12 hours after you work out," she continued. "A HITT workout is basically three to four complexes and a complex is about three exercises that you can do about three to four times with no rest. Your heart rate is always up and you're lifting weights."


Healthy Eating

Maryse understands the importance of a healthy diet "Eating is 80 percent of everything," she told E! News. "Working out for an hour is really easy, but the rest of the day is 23 hours and that's the hardest part."


Occasional Cheat Meals


Maryse cheats on occasion. "I love chocolate cake," she told E! News. "I'm French. I also love cheese and bread, so I could just live on that. 


A High Protein Diet

Maryse understands that you need to fuel your diet for success, especially when you are working out a lot. While she may eat chocolate cake twice a week, her diet is mostly "high protein, low carbs and low fats." "Unfortunately, the majority of Americans who eat breakfast consume too little protein at their breakfast meal and instead, eat the majority of their daily protein at dinner. The higher amount of protein (greatly exceeding 30g of protein) typically consumed at dinner time cannot be stored for later use and is either used for energy or stored as fat," says the American Society of Nutrition.
