[ads1 id=”alignright”]Back in 2012, when Reese Witherspoon’s new film, “This Means War” had been released, she was looking absolutely stunning when she had made her appearance on the red carpet at the premiere.
She had donned a stunning strapless Miu Miu dress with Christian Louboutin pumps. Her admirers and fans cannot help but be inspired by her confidence and smile over the years, which are matched by her healthy, strong body.
The exciting thing is that Michael George, Witherspoon’s former trainer, has actually shared details of her workout routine.
Prior to the release of “This Means War,” George spent an entire year working with the Oscar-winning beauty three to four times a week. He said that the reason Witherspoon was able to sculpt a lean and strong physique was all because of the right combination of cardio and strength training, with plenty of healthy eating.
According to George, Witherspoon would eat clean and healthy, small meals everyday with snacks, she would do 30 minutes of cardio every day for 6 days each week and she reduced her alcohol consumption as well. He also mentioned that he did not let Witherspoon dismiss the strength training, and this activity subsequently helped fire up her metabolism.
To help Witherspoon drop some body fat, improve her overall fitness, and sculpt lean muscle, she and George apparently went on hikes. George also helped and encouraged her to use light dumbbells for strength building exercises, such as lunge walk with bicep curls, side leg raises with glute kickbacks, squats, walking with shoulder press, walking with side laterals, and walking with tricep extensions. George has claimed that Witherspoon was already in excellent shape, so improving her general fitness is what she was looking for.
Reese Witherspoon also happens to be an avid runner, which is an activity and workout that she not only loves but has definitely contributed in helping her burn unwanted calories. Witherspoon is frequently seen running in her Brentwood neighborhood, and she has a great technique as well. Apparently, she happens to be a midfoot striker, which is a running gait in which excellent shock absorption is gained while the Achilles tendon and the calf muscles do not get strained.
Apart from running, Witherspoon also does yoga. Matthew Reyes, her yoga teacher and owner of YogaHop in Santa Monica, apparently sees anywhere between once or thrice a week whenever she is in town for 90-minute sessions. The classes incorporate yoga poses with hip-hop, pop, and rock music. Witherspoon apparently also goes to spin and Vinyasa yoga classes too.
Last but not least, Witherspoon seems to be quite active even when she is spending time with her children, Ava and Deacon, such as going ice skating and playing softball with them.
Overall, hiking/running and yoga along with some unique strength-training moves seem to be the major components of Reese Witherspoon’s workout routine, which is the reason she looks so fit and fabulous even at 38.
