We even got a sense of her physicality in “Ocean’s Eight,” when she played a heist ringleader.

She needs to do more than just exercise to stay in shape. She also needs to eat well. Bullock follows a balanced Meal Plan that is optimized for fat loss and weight management by ensuring her portion sizes keep her feeling full and satisfied but that also ensure that she is not overeating at every meal. She admits to being very careful with portion control at mealtimes and makes every effort not to overeat, even when it’s tempting. Sandra says she tries to keep her metabolism active by eating smaller portions of her healthy meals, and she continues to graze on fruits and nuts when cravings strike.

Curl your hands toward your shoulders, keeping your elbows close to your body.
Slowly lower back to start, resisting the pull of the band.
Do at least 20 reps.

The One-Arm Superwoman Press — is responsible for her gorgeous upper body. It targets the muscles in the shoulders along with those in the upper back and chest, for long, lean definition.

Starting in plank position with your hands directly below your shoulders, keep your core tight and your body in a straight line.

Hold this pose for 3 seconds and then return to plank.
Next, lower your chest toward the ground to perform a push-up. This is one rep. Repeat the whole process with the opposite arm and leg.
Work up to two sets of 10 reps, making sure to rest 30 to 60 seconds in-between sets. Do the routine five times a week.
