50cent 50 Cent Trains with Intensity workout routines The Muscle and Fitness magazine cover boy uses a 3 day training split and trains with intensity to get the results he wants to look and feel good on stage and in his videos.

“I try not to memorize my workouts because I don’t want to know when I’m done.  I just want to keep pushing myself, and I want to train with people who will push me.  I’ve trained hard enough to throw up after working out, a lot, so I’m very familiar with that feels like,” says the rapper.

Here’s 50′s Training Split:

Monday – Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
Tuesday – Back, Biceps
Wednesday – Lower Body, HIIT Cardio
Thursday -  Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
Friday – Back, Biceps
Saturday – Lower Body, HIIT Cardio
Sunday – Rest

Sofia Vergara on Working Out

Sofia rocks a gorgeous, voluptuous body, but hates hitting the gym. Instead she dances her way to fitness. She says, “I hate to work out. I get in a bad mood when I have to do it! I’m not athletic. But I love dancing to Latin music, so I have a trainer who dances with me for an hour, three times a week. The truth is, you work out for health and you do look better. And I have a responsibility to the show. Nobody wants to see Gloria with a flat ass!”

Although Sofia Vergara recognizes the importance of a good workout, she won’t go under the knife to combat aging. She says, “I exercise because you need it to stay slim and stay put, especially as you get older. But some women overdo it: Their body looks 20, but their face looks horrible. You need a little fat in your face! So they fill their face with crap, and then they look like monsters. Who do you think you’re fooling? We know those aren’t your lips. I don’t want plastic surgery or fillers or Botox.”
