She Bikes


Bullock also told InStyle that she also enjoys biking in Austin. Better Health states that biking has a lot of benefits. "Cycling can help to protect you from serious diseases such as stroke, heart attack, some cancers, depression, diabetes, obesity and arthritis. Riding a bike is healthy, fun and a low-impact form of exercise for all ages. Cycling is easy to fit into your daily routine by riding to the shops, park, school or work."

In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, Bullock revealed that she wants to take a break from acting to spend more time at home with her two children. "I can be creative," she says. "I can be part of a community. But right now, work in front of me needs to take a pause." Bullock admits that she's not sure how long her hiatus will be. "Until I don't feel how I feel when I'm in front of the camera."


She Works With A Trainer


Bullock is one of many celebrity clients who trains with Simone De La Rue, the creator of the Body By Simone method. De La Rue talked about her approach to working with clients in an interview with Women's Health. "I work out a crazy amount—too much! I work out alongside my clients to motivate and inspire them. I used to do up to seven clients a day, but now I do three to four. But if I weren't being paid I wouldn't work out five hours a day!"


She Does Plank Workouts


De La Rue shared some of the workouts that she does with Bullock in an interview with Health. She says that she has the actress do plank-inspired and other ab workouts. De La Rue says that she has Bullock do the Superwoman exercise.  "It targets the muscles in the shoulders, along with those in the upper back and chest, for long, lean definition," she explained.


She's Consistent


Bullock has a busy schedule. However, she always makes time for a workout. Her Bird Box co-star, Trevante Rhodes, told Entertainment Tonight that Bullock worked out each day prior to filming. "The truth is, before set everyday, she would show up in her workout/ So she works out every day." Bullock also told InStyle that she tries to be as consistent as she can with exercise. "If I can workout every day, I will."


She Gives Back
