Megan hired a personal trainer who had her do a time compressed body-weight routine. This is a very similar routine that many of the stars are doing. Robert Downey Jr. did a similar type of workout for Ironman.
Megan Fox's trainer obviously understood the benefit of sticking to bodyweight intervals to keep her body slim, sexy, and functional without bulking up.
Believe it or not, this is a similar routine that actors like Brad Pitt and Daniel Craig do to get ready for their movie roles.Okay, Back to Megan Fox's WorkoutPlanks
: Megan's workout relied heavily on planks. Hollywood Trainer, Craig Ballantyne has a video page which shows several variations (will give link to that page later). Planks are by far the best move for women to get sexy, flat abs like Megan.A Brief Ab Circuit
: After blitzing her abs with planks, she would then spend 15-20 minutes doing a circuit that involved knee ups, leg swings, and ball leg lifts. This is done in an interval like fashion...hard effort with just a little rest and back to a tough exercise. The idea is to do 3-4 different exercises back-to-back, rest 30-60 seconds, then do it again. Repeat for 15-20 minutes. It is harder than it sounds!Old School Stationary Bike
: She then took advantage of the increased heart rate by finishing off with 30 minutes of cycling. This was done with low intensity (I'll explain why intervals, followed by low intensity cardio is extremely effective at getting lean).Why Megan Fox's Brief Workout Burns Fat Like Crazy
: You have probably heard that High Intensity Interval Training is great for getting lean and burning fat. This is true, but there is a flaw...Interval Cardio
is great at releasing fatty acids from fat cells (basically releasing fat into the bloodstream)...but is not good for using these fatty acids, once released.Low Intensity Cardio
is great for using fat for energy, but isn't good at releasing fat from the fat cells in the first place.Megan Fox's Workout Program was a Hybrid Approach
: She used body weight intervals to release the fat from the fat cells, followed by low intensity cardio to use these fatty acids for energy. The result was that Megan had a smokin' body for Transformers.
