Angelina Jolie Workout

 

Angelina Jolie

When Angelina needs to get into Hollywood shape for a movie, She works out with celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson. He puts her through circuit training and aerobic exercise five days a week for up to 2 hours per day.

Gunnar uses this circuit with a lot of his celebrity clients, as seen in his book The Workout: Core Secrets from Hollywood’s #1 Trainer. For beginners,Gunnar only has his clients do the circuit for one set all the way through. As his clients fitness increases, Gunnar increases the amount of times they do the circuit.

Each workout then ends with an aerobic workout. Gunnar will have Jolie do 30 min of cardio, usually MIIT (Medium Intensity Interval Training) or HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) on a treadmill. This type of training involves doing intense intervels alternated with easy cardio. For example:

MIIT: run for 45-60 seconds fast, then slow jog or walk for 60 seconds, repeat

HIIT: sprint hard for 20-30 seconds, then slow job or walk for 60-90 seconds, repeat. Do this no more than 2-3x per week.

Gunnar also likes to vary the incline of the treadmill for Jolie as well as switch up the machines they are using within the same session for example:

Gunnar will have Jolie on 3 separate machines for 15 min each for a total of 45 minutes.
