How Amanda Seyfried Got in Shape for In Time
Hollywood hottie Amanda Seyfried is no stranger to dating extremely attractive leading men – on screen and off. In her latest action thriller flick In Time, she’s steamin’ up the big screen with her hubba hubba co-star Justin Timberlake.
So just how did the beautiful, wide-eyed actress get her bod prepped for her wild wardrobe and sultry scenes? Fortunately, the knockout talent didn’t really have to get fit in time for In Time…because she’s been working with powerhouse celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak for the last few years!
The amazing results show. Having trained everyone from Halle Berry, Lady Gaga and Megan Fox to Jennifer Hudson and Milla Jovovich, Pasternak’s incredible client list reads like an IMDB page. The talented trainer definitely knows his stuff when it comes to all things health and fitness.
To keep her body toned, fit and fabulous, Seyfried has been following Pasternak’s 5-Factor Program. “She works out really hard and looks phenomenal. She knows what it takes and doesn’t need to spend a whole lot of time in the gym,” Pasternak says.
On Pasternak’s 5-Factor Diet, Seyfried eats five times a day: breakfast, a snack, lunch, a snack and dinner. A snack is half the size of a meal. Every time she eats, there are five factors: a low-fat protein, a healthy carbohydrate, a fiber, healthy fats (or the absence of unhealthy fats) and a sugar-free beverage.
The best part? When you follow Pasternak’s results-driven program, you’ll get one “free day” per week, where you can eat “whatever you want, however you want, whenever you want it!” Pasternak says.
In addition to his healthy diet plan, Pasternak’s clients train with his powerful 5-Factor Hollywood Workout. The workout uses an advanced technique called “supersetting,” in which you do two exercises back-to-back without resting in between. This makes the workout shorter (as little as 25 minutes a day, 5 days per week) but keeps your heart rate elevated longer, so you burn more calories.
That’s why we were totally pumped when Pasternak revealed a sample of Seyfried’s 5-Factor Workout, here:
You’ll Need: A jump rope, a set of dumbbells, a floor mat, and a bench with an incline feature.
How it Works: You’ll do 5 workouts a week, each 25 minutes long and broken into five 5-minute phases. Each is done as a circuit, and the number of reps, sets, type of exercises and resistance level should change every day.
“For your body to keep changing, your program needs to keep changing,” Pasternak says.
