Jessica Alba works hard for her bikini bod, but even she admits that “working out sucks.”
The 34-year-old cover girl opened up to Shape magazine for their June 2015 issue and credits the “martial arts, gymnastics, dance, and strength training” she did while filming Dark Angel for her fit physique. “That’s made me strong,” she told the mag. “And really set the bar.”
Now, when the mom of two has only 30 minutes to workout, she’ll do a “series of burpees, mountain climbers, squat jumps, planks, and a few sun salutations.”
“But I’m not going to lie. Working out sucks. Which is why I love taking classes, because I’m surrounded by other people and that keeps me motivated and accountable,” the Sin City star continued. “These days, I do power yoga with light weights in a 105-degree room, so it’s a mix of hot yoga and strength training. I also spin. The key for me is good music, like 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Jay Z, Beyoncé.”
The Honest Company co-founder, who also practices meditation, revealed she’s actually more comfortable in a bikini now that she’s welcomed two children with husband Cash Warren.
“I wasn’t truly confident about my body until I had my daughters, Honor, 7, and Haven, 3,” the Into the Blue star, who stuns in the magazine in a blue two-piece, admitted. “I felt more comfortable in my own skin after they were born. Plus, if I want them to be happy with their bodies, I need to walk the walk.”
