Cher, 72, Reveals She Can Still Do a 5-Minute Plank
Cher — who has previously revealed she’s “Strong Enough” to do a five-minute plank — is opening up about how she maintains her fabulous figure.
Speaking of her health regimen in this week’s issue, the 72-year-old icon tells People: “You have to work out. But, thank God, I always was a tomboy, so I don’t mind doing it. I like cake and stuff too, but I have to limit myself, ’cause I have to fit into costumes. So I watch what I’m eating, and I don’t like it. When I was 40 or 50, I never had to watch it, but I have to now.”
As for her workouts?
As the pop icon first told People last year, she planks daily!
“I started out with 30 seconds and I thought I was gonna die,” she said at the time. “Now I do three to five minutes!”
In addition to dropping Dancing Queen, Cher is on her international Here We Go Again tour, and in December, The Cher Show — a jukebox musical based on her life — will open on Broadway. And while the legend says she’ll retire one day, she’s grateful for her stamina today.
“Sometimes I think, ‘It’s such a pain in my ass,’” she says of her enduring career in showbiz. “But then I remember, ‘You’re so lucky to be able to do what you’re doing.’”
“It can get exhausting being Cher, especially when you’re older and you’re still doing the same things,” she says. “But I still have a great time. To have the stamina, and also to have the audience. … You forget that people just do regular jobs that they don’t get applause for.”
