celebrity Julia Roberts and her Water Workout

Last weekend millions of romantics celebrated Valentine’s Day by hitting the theatres to catch the romantic comedy Valentine’s Day. The stellar cast, comprising A-list hotties including 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, was the main reason many ladies and gentlemen caught the film.

Julia Roberts has been America’s sweetheart for generations, and despite giving birth to three kids, still has one of the hottest bodies in Hollywood. Julia’s personal trainer Kathy Kaehler says, “I try to keep it very creative so she doesn’t get bored.” Julia enjoys working out in the pool at her Malibu home to spend more time with her kids. In the pool, Julia does a mix of running, cross-country ski movements and arm strengthening exercises. The water adds resistance creating an overall body toning experience. Julia’s trainer says, Julia “needs to look good on-screen, but she also needs the strength and energy to run around after her kids offscreen.” “Swimming and water exercises are great ways to build up endurance and stay fit.”

If you are interested in a quick water workout like Julia’s, try this routine designed by her trainer Kathy. First, swim a few easy laps to warm up (about 5 to 10 minutes). Then, put on a flotation belt and head to the deep end. Run at an easy pace for 60 seconds, a moderate pace for 90 seconds, a fast pace for 60 seconds, and repeat 5 times. Keep going if you want a bigger burn.

Julia’s trainer also says Julia tones her arms using resistance band exercises. Kathy helps Julia tone her biceps and shoulders using bicep curls and lateral shoulder raises. Not only do Julia’s arms look great, they are also strong enough to carry around her brood.

Try these easy arm exercises using resistance bands, like Julia:

1. Singe-Arm Pull-Downs (works triceps)l FI080106FITAL002 Julia Roberts Water Workout exercises celebrity workouts

  • Do 8 to 10 reps; switch arms and repeat.

  • Do 8 to 10 reps.
