Shop girl mistress Crystal Allen in The WomenWORKOUT PLAN
Celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak
has been working with Eva Mendes
for over three years. Because she follows his 5-factor diet
exercise program year-round, she didn't have to change much in her daily routine to look phenomenal for the role. "This film was really about her being sexy and strong," says Pasternak. "She is lean and fit, but maintained her natural feminine curves." She had four to five workouts a week, each averaging 45 minutes. The workouts include five phases: cardio, upper strength, lower strength, abs and cardio. While she excels at ab work and hamstring exercises like dead lifts, her biggest challenge is upper strength, specifically the shoulder work.
