I Tried Jennifer Lopez's Workout Routine For A Week, And Not To Be Dramatic, But Damn
I did not know it was physically possible to feel this sore.
Hi! I'm Fabiana, and I'm someone who genuinely loves taking care of my body through exercising and eating well. I also am always on the hunt for the next workout class, trainer, or workout regimen that I could try to keep things interesting.
I tend to lean towards strength-training workouts, usually working different body parts on different days. I'm not a big fan of cardio, but I try to occasionally do a HIIT-style workout to get my heart rate up and break a serious sweat.
In addition to loving workouts, I'm also fascinated by other people's workout routines, especially celebrities.
To get me out of my workout rut and to switch things up, I figured I'd do a little digging and find a celebrity workout to try out for a week. I came across Jennifer Lopez's routine, read through it, gasped a little — and then figured it was (probably) just the challenge that my body needed. 😅
Quick research shows that J.Lo does a mix of workouts and partners with several different trainers — which I really liked, because it was similar to how I approach working out too. According to one of her trainers, Dodd Romero, the singer trains for about an hour, four to five times a week, and she focuses on different body parts for each workout.
I decided to do five days of consecutive workouts followed by two days of rest. Each day would focus on a different body part.
The week would go like this:
•Monday: Lower Body
• Wednesday: Upper Body
• Thursday: Upper Body (again)
• Friday: Full Body
• Saturday: Rest Day
• Sunday: Rest Day
