Get into plankingTo challenge her, Jennifer’s trainer Leyon Azubuike told Women’s Health that he has Jen do plank flow, where she starts in a standard plank, then moves to a side plank, then moves to plank with shoulder taps, and so forth.
Think outside the sit-upsJennifer loves doing V-ups and using an ab wheel, Azubuike told Women’s Health. "We’ll use a sit-up to shock the body occasionally, but it’s not a major part of our core regimen,” he said.
Don't rush your workouts if you have the timeJen doesn’t pop in and out of the gym—she spends up to an hour and a half working out during each exercise session, Azubuike told Women’s Health.
Be flexible with your workoutsEverybody has someplace they need to be, and Jennifer is no exception. Azubuike told Women’s Health that he uses a training technique called "periodization" with Jen, which adjusts things based on her schedule. "Depending on where we are in that cycle dictates the duration and intensity of Jen’s workout," he says.
"If I know Jen isn’t filming anything, it’s a different phase than if I know she has something coming up tomorrow. If she’s going to be walking up to receive an award, I’m not going to destroy her legs in the gym the day before."
Read up on intermittent fasting"I do intermittent fasting, so no food in the morning," Jennifer told UK outlet Radio Times. "I noticed a big difference in going without solid food for 16 hours."
Find time to sweat, no excusesSometimes Jen will work out in the middle of the night when she’s shooting. "She has to respond when I say go," Azubuike told Women’s Health.
"If she has a shoot at 3 a.m. and we need to work out before that, let’s go...we respect each other in that regard, so it’s a constant back and forth with mutual respect and understanding."
