The Bachelor Jason Mesnick celebrity fitness workout diet

Last season on The Bachelor, fans watched in shock as bachelor Jason Mesnick decided to switch between the woman he chose on the finale and the woman he sent home. After the finale filmed, Jason left the show and pursued a relationship with his chosen fiancé, Melissa Rycroft, but soon realized that his true feelings were for the runner-up Molly Malaney. On the post-finale “After the Final Rose” episode, Jason broke up with Melissa and asked Molly whether she was interested in giving their love another chance. It turns out that Molly was the right choice for Jason, and their marriage will air on television tonight on “The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding.”

At first, everyone loved Jason Mesnick. He was a single dad with a big heart and a hot body. Although many fans were furious when he broke Melissa’s heart on television, today the anger has subsided and fans are excited to see Jason’s “happily ever after.”

To prepare for his big day, Jason needed to be in top shape. During his season on The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick explained his views on health and fitness to Active Health Network. He says that exercise has always been an important party of his life. In fact, Jason says he has worked out 5-days a week since he was 13-years old. He recalls that in college he would spend 2-hours per day at the gym. His routine consisted of one hour of cardio, one hour of weights, and a bunch of sit-ups and stretching. In fact, before Jason became the bachelor he wanted to start a national organization to fight childhood obesity. Recently, he gave up his 2-hour workouts and started circuit training. He enjoys circuit training because he finds it more fun than his old routine, and two of his great friends own a circuit training studio called Elite Fitness Training.

Jason Mesnick also has healthy eating habits. He does not follow a strict diet, but tries to eat everything in moderation. Jason says he loves hamburgers, but knows not to eat them everyday. Instead, he tries to eat them once a month, which makes him look forward to them even more. He also drinks a lot of water and eats plenty of vegetables. He says if he does these two things, everything else falls into place. Additionally, Jason avoids having a lot of snacks around. He does not believe in dieting, and feels healthy eating is a lifestyle choice.

SherylCro Georg 13820997 265x300 Celebrity Workout Secrets to Get You Motivated fitness tips Fitness Magazine has put together 17 workout secrets of Hollywood’s hottest stars.  Tyra Banks, Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Simpson, Avril Lavigne, and others offer their secrets for staying focused and fit.

Here are some of the examples in the article:

Penelope Cruz gets her fitness outside. “Workouts aren’t just about burning calories, they’re about getting in shape for the things you love,” says trainer Gunnar Peterson.

Jessica Simpson uses one for wall squats, says trainer Harley Pasternak, keeping the ball behind her back to maintain proper form as she sculpts her legs and butt.

Trainer Joe Dowdell has actress Claire Danes hoist some hefty weights during her high-intensity workouts.

Singer Sheryl Crow regularly cross-trains with a combo of running and cycling.

Julia Roberts stays in shape with do-anywhere resistance-band exercises from trainer Kathy Kaehler, including standing on the band for double biceps curls and front and lateral shoulder raises.

Kate Hudson keeps fit by mixing things up. In addition to running, she takes Sheila Kelley’s S Factor (pole dancing and striptease) classes regularly — in 6-inch heels!

Madonna should wear a helmet while she rides, but even so, cycling is a great way to cross-train, burning more than 500 calories an hour at a moderate pace and sculpting the abs, legs, and butt.

World Cup Soccer Workout with Clint Dempsey

Clint Dempsey trickled a goal through the arms of goalkeeper Robert Greene to earn a draw for the United States in the opening round of the 2010 World Cup soccer tournament.  Dempsey, a midfielder for the U.S. National Team, has been known to run almost 8 miles per game.   Men’s Health recently revealed the training secrets of four members of the U.S. squad, including those of Clint Dempsey, with a soccer workout devised for endurance, strength, speed and agilityThe Celebrity Workout’s first look at the soccer workout for each of those skills will be at the endurance training of Clint Dempsey.

Scott Piri, director of soccer for Athletes’ Performance, which oversees fitness for the U.S. men’s team, says, “Running in soccer is interval based Midfielders mix jogging, running, high-speed running, and sprinting.”

Dempsey, who currently plays for Fulham, says “My competitiveness pushes me.  That’s where I gain my edge–the willingness to push myself. If you’re not doing it, someone else will.”

“Clint’s not a freak born with incredible running ability,” says Pierre Barrieu, the national team fitness coach. “He’s worked a lot on his running because he knows he needs it to play at his best.” There’s a special payoff to having gas left in the tank. “You see most goals scored in the final 15 minutes of a game,” says Piri. “You’ve been running for 75 minutes, and the question is, Can you still run hard?”

Test Your Endurance

Do this interval workout developed by German national team fitness coach Shad Forsythe:

1) Run for 4 minutes at the fastest pace you can.  Note the distance you covered.
2) Jog slowly for 3 minutes
3) Repeat 2 more times.
4) Take an average of the distance you covered while running the three fast intervals.

Now take the average you found in step 4:

Average endurance – .4 miles
Great endurance – .6 miles
World Class endurance – .8 miles

TCW Says… Keep in mind that running on the treadmill may be easier to record the distance you covered but it is also not as challenging as your calves do not have to work nearly as hard to propel you.  TCW suggests raising the incline of the treadmill to between 1.0 and 2.0 to simulate running outdoors (e.g.,wind resistance).

If your test results aren’t as good as you’d like, use this soccer workout program featured on the Men’s Health website and then re-test yourself in a few weeks to see how much improvement you have made.  Remember, you must push through your comfort zone to get results.
