As the world continues to debate over the most effective diet plans, Kate Beckinsale seems to have found a solution that suits her fitness goals.
The actress has always been very focused on maintaining her physique but, according to her, it has not been an easy journey. Although she works out, motivating herself to exercise has always been a challenge for her, even though she feels amazing after every workout is done.
According to Beckinsale, working out has not only provided her with a toned physique but has also contributed to the wellbeing of her mental health. She has called exercise the most natural form of anti-depressant and has credited it to the feeling of happiness she continues to experience on a daily basis.
Working Out Regularly
As an actress who has become famous around the globe for her roles in action-packed films such as the Underworld film series, Beckinsale understands that she needs to stay in shape.
That is why she prioritizes hitting the gym as regularly as possible. She has found Gunnar Peterson, who has committed to ensuring every workout Beckinsale invests time in turns out to be extremely beneficial for her.
Beckinsale’s workout schedule allows for just one or two off days in an entire week, and Gunnar makes sure that he is considerate of her other priorities in life and accommodates them accordingly.
This is easy to do since both Gunnar and Beckinsale share a lot of similarities, such as having kids. Also, during the workout sessions, both of them often converse about topics of common interest, like having and handling teenagers, and this has made exercise a fun part of the Beckinsale’s routine and working out a somewhat seamless process.
Lessons We Can Apply
The actress has certainly achieved a beautifully sculpted figure and has also shared the secrets which have helped her during the process. According to her, challenging your body to go beyond its comfort zone is very important, as this pushes it to change in appearance due to all the built-up pressure. She achieves this with a nonmotorized treadmill and also circuit training that is combined with an intense cardio session.
She also recommends that you sweat as much as possible. According to her, she was a huge fan of yoga and would consider it to be the only form of exercise which she needed to do in order to stay in shape.
But then she shifted gears and moved towards more intense workouts that make her sweat more than anything else, but the more she sweats, the faster she sees results on her body.
When it comes to diet, the actress is very particular about what she puts in her system. She used to be a vegetarian but then, as she needed to prepare her body for Pearl Harbor, her trainer recommended lean meats to her including chicken as well as fish.
This caused her body to change in a very drastic manner, and since then she has been a fan of lean meats especially when she needs to put on some mass on her muscles.
