Ever since her Fantastic Four days, Jessica Alba has been killing it. From successfully owning the billion-dollar Honest Company, being a mother of two, and acting, girlfriend has everything going for her—and a killer body to do it all!
Shape magazine chose this hot mama to rock this summer’s hottest swimwear, and there’s no wonder why. She has martial arts, gymnastics, dance, and strength training to thank for her athletic body while filming Dark Angel years back.
But how does she stay so toned with such a busy schedule? “”I have to break a sweat or I don’t feel like I’ve gotten anything done,” the brunette beauty says. When she’s pressed for time, she’ll do a series of burpees, mountain climbers, squat jumps, planks, and a few sun salutations.
“I’m not going to lie. Working out sucks,” Alba explained to the publication.”Which is why I love taking classes, because I’m surrounded by other people and that keeps me motivated and accountable.” We hear that! These days, the actress loves to practice power yoga with light weights in a 105-degree room—it’s a mix of hot yoga and strength training. She also enjoys spin classes.
As a pre-workout snack—after years of too much coffee and bananas—she started making a shake using vegan protein powder, matcha green tea powder, a banana, coconut water, and ice. It won’t make you feel too full—and you can even wait till after you exercise.
