Movie Star Workouts
ROLE Liv in Bride Wars
WORKOUT PLAN Kate Hudson and her long-time trainer Nicole Stuart (who plays a receptionist in Bride Wars) work together throughout the year doing a mix of cardio, yoga and pilates. Hudson's training is constantly changing to target the dynamics of all her muscles with different exercises. "If we run one day for 20 minutes, the next day is a 30 minute run with Pilates. Or if we do stairs one day for 30 minutes, the next day we do an hour and a half Pilates class and then a high pace 15-20 minute run," says Stuart. Pilates and yoga are Hudson's specialties (she has a dancing background), but Stuart keeps her challenged by consistently introducing new moves and being a stickler for perfect form. With a little extra toning and strengthening, the actress was in excellent shape when she started shooting the film. "Kate has an incredible body that keeps looking better and better over time," says Stuart.
