Jessica Alba

Born in Pomona, California, on April 28, 1981, Jessica Alba did a lot of moving around as a kid. Her dad was in the Air Force, so she was a self-proclaimed "military brat" as she basically grew up on various Air Force bases across the United States before the family found a permanent home in Southern California.

Soon after, Jessica Alba fell head over heels in love with acting. At the age of 12, she took her first acting lessons and landed herself an agent.

Jessica has appeared in over 30 film and television productions, where she played everything from superhuman action heroes to pole-dancing strippers in Sin City. Regardless of her role, more often than not she possesses irresistible charm and an incredibly smoking hot body.

Is there a secret behind her incredible physique that consistently lands her a spot on the Sexiest Women in the World list? How does she maintain her incredible curves and smokin' physique? It's all here in the Jessica Alba Workout & Diet routine.

Jessica Alba Workout

Jessica Alba works extremely hard to get the body that she has. She works out 5 times/week for 40 minutes.

A sample of Alba's workout is provided here by her trainer.

Jessica's warm up is a quick 10 minute cardio session. She'll start by jogging lightly for 2 minutes to get her muscles loosened up and then she'll increase her intensity for the next 6 min. She finishes the warm up with another 2 minute light jog.

After her warm-up, Jessica quickly moves on to a short weight training circuit workout. She performs 3 sets, 20 repetitions of the following exercises:

-Reverse flys
-Lateral shoulder raise
-Alternating forward lunges coupled with bicep curls

NOTE: Jessica uses light dumbells (3lbs). For maximum effect, I suggest you go somewhat heavier .

Once the weight training circuit is done, Alba jumps back on the treadmill to do a quick interval training cardio workout. She does a 5 minute session that consists of 30 seconds of light jogging alternating with 30 seconds of full-out sprints.

NOTE: The most effective way to lose weight is to alternate low intensity activity with high intensity activity. By doing so, you will elevate your heart rate, your epoc levels, and your overall calorie-burning potential. Consider cardio intervals instead of steady cardio sessions such as jogging.

After her cardio intervals, Alba does another weight training circuit. Now she does 3 sets, 30 repetitions of each of these exercises:

-Chest press
-Squats combined with shoulder press
-Tricep dips

After completing her second weight training session, Alba is back on the treadmill for another intense but short 5 min interval cardio workout. Learn more about the power of sprint training.

The workout is polished off with a quick ab workout. She does 20 repetitions of these three ab exercises:

-Reverse crunches
-30 second plank hold
-Bicycle crunches

The two secrets behind Alba's workouts are:

1) She constantly keeps changing things up, never letting her body get accustomed to the workout;
2) She changes up her intensity levels throughout her workout which maximizes her calorie burning potential.

Jessica Alba Diet

Maintaining a body like Jessica Alba's is all about proper nutrition. You need to have an understanding of what exactly you're putting inside your body.

Portion control is one of Alba's secrets to success. She knows that she has to control how much she's consuming to maintain her physique. Another key to Alba's success is her will power and her ability to resist junk food.

Jessica consumes lots of lean meat, fruits, veggies, whole grains and low fat cheeses.

Here's a sample of her daily diet:

Alba's breakfast will typically consist of one cup oatmeal with berries with 3-4 scrambled egg whites. She'll have a salad for lunch which is made up of 170 grams of chicken breast/tuna on mixed greens with light dressing or a table spoon of olive oil, lemon juice and herbs. As a snack, she'll have a handful of almonds or hot air popped popcorn. For dinner, Alba will have 170g of sashimi or other lean protein (chicken or extra lean sirloin) plus a plate of assorted vegetables and 3 red potatoes.
