She Loves to Workout


One of the key ways Vanessa stays in sensational shape is by working out daily. "I would do seven days if I had time," she told Parade about her workouts. She tries to get her workouts in as soon after waking up as possible. "I love starting my day off that way because sometimes I'll have a less productive days and if I've gotten a workout in, then I feel like I'm accomplished no matter what."

Vanessa started off her mini workout video, which was first shared by her trainer in May, by perfectly executing sumo squats with a kettlebell. The compound exercise is incredibly effective, forcing a variety of muscles — including glutes, quadriceps, calves — to workout together. Clearly she was having some fun with her fitness routine, as she playfully stuck out her tongue for the camera.

In another compound exercise, Hudgens held a medicine ball while she executed a slide squat, a move made extra hard with the addition of a resistance band around her ankles.

Next up, a reverse lunge to high knee with dumbbells. Another compound move, this exercise works everything to the legs and butt to abs. For the workout video, see here:


Vanessa Also Does a Bunch of Other Workouts


In addition to weight and strength training, Vanessa stays in shape with lots of other workouts. Pilates, Soul Cycle, hot yoga, and strength training are a few of her favorite workouts—and sometimes she even does multiple workouts a day. "Some days when I have the time, I love doing Pilates first and then going over to Soul Cycle. I love a double up!" she told Parade. "I always feel so accomplished when I double up. I've been going to this Pilates studio called WundaBar for years and it's just a great deep muscle-training workout. It's not super high intensity but I always feel it the next day."
