The Sweaty Guinea Pig’s Gal: Jessica Biel

February 23rd, 2008 · No Comments ·

Every month, The Sweaty Guinea Pig will share a male and female celebrity’s experiences on fitness and healthy living.


Jessica Biel has become a fitness icon in Hollywood because of her toned body and ass kicking moves in Blade: Trinity. Here’s a list of ten Jessica’s lifestyle principles.

  1. Change is good - always try different workouts and get involved with recreational or outdoor activities.
  2. Hard work is ever better - all workouts are full body movements, there are minimal isolated movements.
  3. Food is not enemy - snack on whole foods, such as nuts, to provide energy
  4. Everything old is new again - do lunges in different directions; working muscles stay the same but they work under different amount of stress
  5. Healthy meals can be tasty - cook for yourself and use healthy ingredients as substitutes; regular French toast can be made with whole wheat bread, and meatballs can be made with lean poultry.
  6. Just because it’s trendy doesn’t mean it works - pilates and yoga are great, but nothing works better than lifting weights to get toned
  7. The “F” word is not all bad - we need healthy fats in our diet; omega-3 fatty acids are espesically important, contained in walnuts, salmon, olive oil, etc.
  8. Focus on your whole body, not just problem areas - workout the whole body will minimize muscle imbalance
  9. All cardio and no lifting makes a bad workout - too many people spend too much time on elliptical machines and their heart rate stays the same as if they were shopping in the mall; hit up the weights and put some stress on muscles to improve overall fitness
  10. Everybody needs a break - a day or two of rest every week will help regroup mentally and physically
