Celebrity Workouts – How Stars Get In Shape!
Do you drool over Usher’s abs? Wanna know how Madonna keeps that bod lookin’ great? Unfortunately, talent isn’t the only thing that makes you go far in the biz – lookin’ good is a huge deal. Many stars adopt a hardcore fitness routine to ready themselves for a movie role. Get the scoop on how some of your fave celebs keep in shape!
Celebrity Workouts – Usher
This boy is a walking visual for the expression “washboard abs!” Usher is so defined that he looks like he’s never even tasted a Big Mac. How does Usher do it? His way, of course. Usher’s been workin’ on his abs since he was 16, but claims that it’s all because of good genes (not jeans… although he does look great in them), hard work and being disciplined – oh yeah, and 1,000 crunches a day. Usher also has a daily routine he calls “forty minutes of funk” which includes stretchin’, skippin’ and jumping jacks. Then he moves onto push-ups, leg raises and tricep dips. Holy… can you say fitness freak! Usher watches what he eats too by munchin’ on foods like chicken, fish, a moderate amount of carbohydrates (rice, pasta, potatoes etc.) and lots of fruits and leafy veggies.

video. “I have a white-girl bootie, so I’m doing all my squats to lift it a little bit and get some junk in my trunk,” says Jessica. While Jessica may have a bit more junk in her trunk, she’s still dealing with a lot of fluff between her ears.
Celebrity Workouts – Gwyneth Paltrow
How does Gwyneth Paltrow keep her lean look? Gwyneth practices yoga for 90 minutes a day. She’s also adopted a special macrobiotic diet, which is made up of whole grains, soup, veggies, beans and sea vegetables.
Celebrity Workouts – Madonna
Madonna has always been in good shape but over the past few years she’s become a total fitness guru! Madonna has adopted a strict routine of Ashtanga Yoga, which keeps her in shape from head to toe. She also follows a strict healthy diet and barely touches junk food.
Celebrity Workouts – Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie had to do a ton of physical preparation for the role of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider. Angelina was on a strict, heavy protein diet of meat and fish like sardines (yuck)! Angelina learned kickboxing and practiced it regularly. She also learned bungee ballet, scuba diving and weapons training, months before the flick started filming. This was required in order to play the video game superhero but it also helped buff her up.

What does it take to be a fashion model?
Female fashion models should be somewhere between 15 and 22 years old, although probably closer to fifteen. Models don’t have careers that last as long as for instance, doctors, so agencies tend to invest their time in someone young.
You should be tall, long-legged, and lean. The minimum height is usually about 5’8″, and average weight for a model is 108-125 lbs. These characteristics are partly aesthetic and partly practical: this type of frame looks good on the runway and in front of the camera; and a somewhat scrawny build drapes clothing nicely and ensures a good fit in the standard wardrobe. There are always exceptions to the rule, of course – Kate Moss is 5’7″ and Gabrielle Reece is a giant 6’3″ – but, in general, the closer you are to the industry norm, the better your chances.
Fashion models still tend to be very skinny. Commercial modeling doesn’t require that you be “skinny”. The key is to take care of yourself. Don’t overeat, but do eat well balanced meals and avoid the snacks. Exercise and keep yourself in good shape.
Male fashion models are normally 6′ to 6′ 2″ tall and wear a size 40 regular jacket. Commercial models do not have any height, weight or size restrictions.
