It’s no secret that Jennifer Aniston has a gorgeous body. And that’s hitting with a capital B. Luckily, over the years she’s been pretty open about how she stays in such amazing shape – see: barre classes, boxing and intermittent fasting – which means we’ve been able to take her fitness tips and tricks and add them to our own workouts whenever we feel like throwing on a Jen An-inspired sweatshirt.
As for what she’s been up to in the gym lately, the Friends star said PopSugar that there are two workouts she “likes” right now. “I really focus on Pilates,” the 53-year-old revealed, adding, “I love a three-minute plank.”
While a three-minute plank — which, for those who don’t know, is a core strength exercise that focuses on your abs — sounds like a nightmare to some of us (me), it seems like Jen An is a big fan of the burn, pointing out that she also does weight training whenever possible. “I always have five to eight pound weights in my trailer [or] in my hotel rooms if I’m away,” the actor said. “And if I’m watching TV or relaxing, reading emails, [I] just use my weights.”
And it’s not just her physical health that she works on, as she also devotes a lot of time to her mental health. “I really give morning meditation a lot of credit,” Jennifer added. “Don’t wake up mindlessly. Wake up, take a moment. Don’t look at your phone.”
She continued: “I have mindful mornings. [It’s a time to] observe my thoughts, so I actually know what I’m doing and understand my focus for the day.”
Taking care of her mental health is something she has made a priority during the pandemic. “We were dodging Omicron like Donkey Kong,” she explained, recalling how COVID spikes last year upended a three-month shoot. “I don’t think I really understood the amount of stress we endured during those three months.”
“I wasn’t working out like normal,” she says of that time, which led to a back injury when she later tried to return to her usual fitness routine, although she admitted that she was “slowly coming back to this.”
Take it Jen!
