So you want to get a body like Jesicca Simpson?
Great stuff! Well it isn't going to be easy because you know Jesicca Simpson put a lot of work into it. So first as always lets look at the stats.
Jesicca Simpson stats
We’re stranger to seeing her look amazing but when Jesicca Simpson squeezed into Daisy Duke’s the trademark denim hotpants for the Dukes of Hazzard movie our mouths dropped a notch further! Here was a woman in prime condition, toned, tiny and curvaceous at the same time. Her perfect balance of femininity and sexiness was made possible thanks to hard work and self-discipline.
Jessica hit the gym hard for three months before shooting began for the Dukes of Hazard, exercising six days a week, an hour and a half a day, of grueling fitness workouts to develop those legs and that booty. Surprisingly she used weights rather than long low intensity cardio routines to get into shape. Her workout routine varied from week to week.
Most of her weight training sessions focused on higher reps (20-24) per set, which is very effective for lower body work. Jessica Simpson's legs make that clear. She did incorporate more traditional sets of 8 to 10 every so often for a change of pace.
Let's take a look at one of Jessica Simpson's leg routines:
Jessica goes through a light warm up on the treadmill, a walk increased to a slight jog for 5 - 10 minutes.
Jessica would start with three sets of dumbbell rows while in the squat position for 20 - 24 reps per set.
This would be followed by 3 sets of bodyweight squats.
Her Dukes of Hazzard workout routine would continue as follows:
• Lying Dumbbell Triceps Extension: 2 - 3 sets of 20 - 24 reps
• Reverse Lunges: 2 - 3 sets per leg, 12 reps per set (per leg)
• Treadmill - 8 minutes at 6.5 mph
• Bicep Curl from a Lunge Position 1 set of 18 reps. This is supersetted with
• Lateral Raise from a Lunge Position (swith leg position) 1 set of 18 reps
?This superset is done for 3 sets
• Treadmill - 8 minutes at 6.5 mph
• Incline Crunches: 15 - 20 reps
• Prone Kneeling Leg Extensions: 2 - 3 sets per leg x 18 reps per set
• Treadmill: 5 - 8 minuts of cool down
• Forward Lunges: 2 - 3 sets x 10 - 20 reps
Traveling Lunges: These are just lunges but instead of staying in place you walk across the room. If this is too easy, try doing it holding a pair of dumbbells at your side.
As you can see, the sculpted Jessica Simpson legs came from a workout emphasizing leg and glute work. She wanted to look good in those short Daisy Duke shorts.
So what about the Jessica Simpson diet?
She has confessed to loathing low carb diets as she falls off the wagon and binges on carbs. So she tried to keep things very simple and adopted an 'if man made it, don't eat it' philosophy. In other words, she made great improvements in both health and fitness just by staying away from processed foods. Jessica Simpson's personal trainer gave her very similar advice. He told Jessica "if you think something's not good for you, don't eat it."
He dubbed this the "Don't Eat Crap" diet. Good advice!
N.B. Jessica did follow some good basic advice by eating mostly grilled chicken, fish and green vegetables, the mainstay of most healthy diets.
According to her personal trainer, Mike Alexander, Jessica was a model client, doing everything asked of her and working hard! Her body is a testament to hard work and motivation...so this is what you’ll need too! falling off the wagon and gorging for even one meal or snack can put you back days and cancel out lots of hard work, making everything you’re doing seem futile.
