This Was Her Workout Plan

"Before my trip to Australia for I'm A Celeb, I started a vigorous summer workout plan, which consisted of three sets of burpees, jumping squats and planks (non-stop for 20 seconds then 40 seconds rest), followed by seated shoulder presses (three sets of ten reps), squats (three sets of ten reps), crunches (three rounds of 20 seconds non-stop plus a 40 second rest) and press-ups (three sets of ten reps)," she told Women's Health. "Although, I prefer weight training on the machines and I still do some cardio. I usually ease myself in with a run or fast walk on the treadmill."


She Works Out 3 to 4 Times a Week

"We know 150 minutes of physical activity each week sounds like a lot, but you don't have to do it all at once. It could be 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. You can spread your activity out during the week and break it up into smaller chunks of time," says the CDC. "Try activities with others in your household for motivation and mutual encouragement. Start slowly and work your way up to more time or more challenging activities."

"Vigorous-intensity aerobic activity means you're breathing hard and fast, and your heart rate has gone up quite a bit. You may use the Talk Test to gauge the intensity of your aerobic physical activity. If you're being active at a vigorous level, you won't be able to say more than a few words without pausing for a breath. Here are some examples of activities that require vigorous effort:

  • Jogging or running
  • Swimming laps
  • Riding a bike fast or on hills
  • Playing singles tennis
  • Playing basketball

If you are doing moderate-intensity physical activity, such as walking or hiking, you can talk, but not sing during the activity," says the CDC


She Does Squats

Try this Standing Isometric Squat Row, 12 reps: "Stand in front of a cable machine with a seated row attachment. (You can also use a resistance band attached to a something solid.) Set the resistance to about ¼ of your body weight. Hold the handle with both hands and bend your knees until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Staying in this squat position, use the muscles of your arms and back to slowly pull the handle to your chest. Holding the squat position, slowly release, while still keeping your shoulders stacked on top of your hips!" says trainer Mark Langowski.


She is an Early Riser

Maya likes to show up to the set early, prepared. "Our circadian rhythms are responsive to light and dark," says psychologist and behavioral sleep medicine specialist Michelle Drerup, PsyD, DBSM to the Cleveland Clinic, which adds: "Exposure to bright light first thing in the morning helps you feel more alert and also helps shift your internal rhythm toward an earlier wake time. Natural light is the best, so get outside or open your bedroom window. If you can't get outside or your room is natural light-deprived, try a light therapy lamp that mimics the spectrum of natural light."
