If you’re a fan of Jennifer Hudson, or maybe recently saw her on TV lately you would have noticed she lost an incredible amount of weight. We were lucky enough to figure out her exact workout routine that helped her drop over 10 dress sizes, check it out below.
Jennifer Hudson would usually workout around 10 AM – about 2 hours after taking her powerful all natural metabolism boosting pills. This is when her energy levels were at their peak and she was able to turn her body into a calorie burning machine.
Jennifer’s trainer had her perform a series of resistance training workouts that were designed to boost her metabolism and help her burn extra calories even AFTER she worked out. She also incorporated Yoga for a powerful mind and body connection.
Jennifer says that the Mind-Body connection is so important for fast and long lasting weight loss success – and the Yoga helped her mind as well as her body.
Jennifer would perform a 3-4 times per week workout regimen – and it was broken down like this:
Monday or Tuesday: Yoga/Abdominal Training Routine
Jennifer would perform a 45-minute yoga routine, and would add in a full abdominal training routine after to stimulate belly fat loss.
This combination got her off to a great start to the week – and allowed her to fuel that powerful mind-body connection for the upcoming week ahead.
