Earlier this year, Reese Witherspoon dropped the news that they would be filming Legally Blonde 3 and, at 42, she still looks like a freakin’ goddess.
We were curious as to what type of workout Reese does to keep in shape, so we got the scoop!
On top of having a personal trainer, Reese attends Burn 60 classes, which is a high-intensity interval training (HIIT), total body workout class. When offered the opportunity to try it, we said, "HELL YEAH."
We met with celebrity trainer Joey Rubino, who led the class and gave us some details about why the workout is so effective.
Before the class began, we were given bracelets that monitor your heart rate, calories burned, and a color-coded percentage system that allows you to see how hard you're working.
While classes vary from session to session depending on the trainer, they all include cardio, floor exercises, and a cool down. When we first walked into the room, we were a little intimidated by all the equipment!
"During the Burn 45 class, males and females can expect to burn an average of 700 calories," Rubino explained.
To start our class, we did a seven-minute run at our own pace. Then switched to interval running where we rotated between jogging, running, and sprinting for 13 minutes.
Then we moved to floor exercises, where we used weights to tone our arms, abs, and legs.
Our final workout was doing 25 burpees (OH LORDY!!!) before taking a well-deserved shavasana (resting pose).
Rubino said Burn 60 will give you amazing results, but it's important to remember nutrition is key. He likes the idea of eating natural, organic foods combined with paleo principals. He also said poor sleep quality contributes to not obtaining the results you desire.
Reese, we have mad respect for you because this workout was WAY more challenging than the bend and snap!
