Movie Star Workouts
ROLE Shy, aspiring artist Lena in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2
WORKOUT PLAN Alexis Bledel has been working with Pilates instructor Viveca Jensen at her studios since she played Rory on Gilmore Girls. Even though Bledel keeps a consistent routine of Piloxing (cardio infused Pilates/Boxing), she was ready to step it up to prepare for her role in this film. "We worked out more intensely with higher repetitions to increase the calorie burn," says Jensen. "We focused on her favorite target areas of butt and thighs." Boxing is the major part of Piloxing and Bledel loves to punch the bag. Her other favorite exercises are working out her abs on the Pilates reformer and posture exercises.
