With the onset of a pandemic, remaining fit is becoming a tad harder than usual. Here’s to getting inspiration from your favorite stars on how to keep the rhythm going and maintaining a wholesome lifestyle.
Halle Berry’s Weekly Workout Sessions!
It’s no secret that Halle Berry’s workouts are intense—there’s plenty of proof on her Instagram. Still, you might be wondering exactly how often the actress works out and what a typical week of training looks like. The short answer: Berry maintains a rigorous exercise program.
Monday: Martial Arts Fight Camp-Style Training
This day is focused on martial arts training so that Berry can work on the skills that are central to her role in Bruised. Her trainer incorporates a lot of conventional boxing punches, kicks that come from Muay Thai, animal and locomotive movements from capoeira for mobility, and conditioning drills from jiu-jitsu.
Tuesday: Rest Day
On this day, Berry’s workout emphasizes explosive, dynamic movements. Plyometric training focuses on ballistic movements such as bounds or jumps and is effective at recruiting fast-twitch muscle fibers and can be used to improve power, stre ngth, and agility. (Try this 10-minute plyometric workout to reap the benefits.)
Thursday: Rest Day
Friday: Strength Training
Some days are dedicated to staple bodybuilding-based movements. Berry will do exercises such as squats, deadlifts, lunges, pull-ups, push-ups, and bench presses. One of their recent sessions entailed 10 rounds of 10 strict pull-ups, 10 push-ups (with different variations each round e.g., with hands elevated on a BOSU ball), and 10 weighted triceps dips for a grand total of 100 reps.
THE KETO DEVOTEE
Berry is one of the many devout celebrity followers of the popular ketogenic diet and regularly shares her favorite keto-friendly meals and recipes with her 5.9 million Instagram followers. Here’s what a standard day from her eating regime pretty much looks like:
Greens and Beets Smoothie
Berry doesn’t share many breakfast recipes, so it’s possible that she’s supplementing her diet with intermittent fasting, which can apparently “accelerate the results” of the keto diet. The one outlier is Purium greens and beets smoothie, it is meant to aid those looking to maintain healthy blood glucose levels naturally.
