Jessica Biel

The goal: Carve Jessica Biel’s muscles so she looks like a vampire-slaying, comic-book character sprung to life in the film “Blade: Trinity.”

The workout: Five-minute warm-up on the treadmill, followed by three to five minutes of light stretching, then a weight workout that changed from week to week. Sometimes Biel and trainer Bobby Strom would isolate a body part, such as her shoulders. Other times, Biel focused on opposing body parts, such as chest and back, biceps and triceps, or quadriceps and hamstrings. This allowed Biel and Strom to keep rest time to a minimum and work muscles until they were fatigued. Next, a tough cardio session: at least 45 minutes a day, six days a week, with Strom keeping close tabs on Biel’s heart rate. They rotated between using routine cardio equipment and martial arts, kickboxing and plyometric circuit training drills.

The signature move: Plyometric jumping squats. Biel would squat on a balance board, use a burst of power to leap into the air, then land back on the board and resume the squat position. She did 12 repetitions of this demanding move. “She loved it,” said Strom, “but she hated it, too.”

The diet: Three meals and three snacks daily. Breakfast: oatmeal with diced apple and cinnamon, and a side of protein (typically one egg scrambled with three egg whites). Lunch and dinner: about 4 ounces of protein (fish, chicken or lean red meat) with a vitamin-rich salad (spinach, asparagus, broccoli) dressed with lemon and a teaspoon of olive oil. Snacks varied but included soy-based protein drinks made with nonfat milk, protein bars or an apple and a dozen unsalted almonds.

The results: Although Biel was in good shape to begin with, she lost 10 pounds and reduced her body fat by 10 percent.

    Jessica is in amazing shape.

    That butt was created (courtesy of good genes, of course) with thousands of lunges.

    She is also a fan of yoga, helping her to stay long and lean.

    I will have to try incorporating those jumping squats into my routines!
