jessica alba wet Jessica Albas Workout to Tone Up for Valentines Day role preparation celebrity workouts Valentine’s Day, the new romantic comedy with the hottest celebrity cast of the year (possibly of all time), comes out today. The celebrity line-up includes Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner, Julia Roberts, and Taylor Swift.

Jessica Alba has always been admired for her physique, but recently fans applauded how quickly she toned up post pregnancy. Jessica hit the gym just three weeks after welcoming her daughter Honor into the world. She started slowly with 25 minutes of core exercises, such as crunches, for the first two weeks. Gradually, she amped up her workout to include 20 minutes of cardio and 15 minutes of circuit training. To take off the last inches, Jessica worked out six days a week for an hour doing three core workouts, two cardio sessions, and one strength-training routine. She also added variety by boxing and hiking.

When it comes to food, Jessica eats healthily but does not diet. Jessica says, “I think you have to eat in a way that makes you feel your best. I include a lot of vegetables and lean protein and fruit and grains in my diet.” Jessica’s personal trainer, Ramona Braganza, says Jessica prefers healthy food. Jessica often starts her day “with carbs—within reason.” Braganza suggests oatmeal, turkey bacon and egg whites. Lunch often includes fish with a small salad and dinner includes chicken breast with brown rice. For between meal snacks, Jessica eats fruit, almonds or cheese.

Earlier we reviewed the workout programs of the American League participants in this year’s Home Run Derby.  The National League sluggers – Matt Holliday, Corey Hart, Hanley Ramirez, and Chris Young, have plenty of workout advice of their own.  Each of the hitters has dedicated himself to being in peak physical condition for the season and the results are certainly paying off on the field.

Matt Holliday

Matt Holliday is possibly one of the biggest workout fanatics in Major League Baseball.  He was recently featured on the cover of Muscle and Fitness Magazine and is truly dedicated to his physical conditioning and nutrition.  He’s a big fan of the TRX and has been known to fly in his trainer and stretching specialist during the season.

Holliday is on a recent hot streak and hit his 16th home run of the season on Sunday.  He will be competing in his 2nd Home Run Derby.

Check back soon for a full review of Matt Holliday and his workout regimen.

Corey Hart

Wanting to drop some excess weight this off-season, Corey Hart told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that he saw an ad for the Insanity workout program and immediately went online to order it.  He reported to spring training 22 pounds lighter after running through the grueling workouts.

“I started seeing results pretty quick, started losing weight and getting in better shape. That made me stick with it,” said the Brewers outfielder.  ”It kills you so you almost have to drink water,” he said. “I didn’t want to die during my workout. It was terrible.

Corey Hart, who hit his 21st homer of the season on Sunday, is in the Home Run Derby for the first time in his career and will play in his 2nd All-Star Game on Tuesday night.

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.
