It’s hard to believe that Jennifer Lopez is 49. She’s in incredible shape, and every time we see a new pic of her looking fabulous in a bathing suit, we remind ourselves to go to the gym. J.Lo’s birthday is coming up, and on July 24th she will be celebrating her 50th birthday. It’s not every day you see a 50-year-old who looks that good! If you’re envious of J.Lo’s killer bod, we’ve got you covered with some insight into how exactly she does it all.
Lopez shared that she never misses a workout, and has a strict exercise regimen where she works out 3-4 times a week. She also prefers to workout in the morning, to boost her energy and get it over with so the rest of the day is free.
Lopez also shared that she thinks an essential part of working out is switching up your workouts. She even has two separate trainers, one for when she’s in New York and one for when she’s in LA and feels they both give her a different approach to fitness. Sometimes she does lighter workouts, consisting of mainly weight lifting. Other times, she increases the intensity of the exercise and does workouts like kickboxing and HIIT.
And how does she get that booty, you ask? Her go-to butt workout is a platypus walk, which is a low squat technique that works the thighs and butt. Her go-to upper body workout is spiderman pushups, and her go-to full-body workout is a quick 30 minutes of training. She says that there is no need to spend hours in the gym.
