How to Get Lean, Sexy Legs like Carrie Underwood
Celeb trainer Tony Greco shares his superstar routine
There's no question country cutie Carrie Underwood has some amazing pipes, but she may just have some of the best limbs in the biz too.
And if you haven’t seen her new album cover yet, be prepared to be Blown Away—literally. With gorgeous gams like that, who could blame her for wanting to show them off! Her legs are so awesome, they even have a Facebook fan page, and country funny man Blake Shelton once suggested they should win their own CMA Award (we agree!).
So the question is, what does Underwood do to sport such perfectly sculpted stems? We spoke to powerhouse trainer Tony Greco (who has worked with both Underwood and her hubby Mike Fisher in Ottawa in the past, while Fisher was playing for the Senators) and one thing’s for sure: The blond beauty is committed to a healthy diet and regular exercise plan.
“Carrie is very knowledgeable in the world of health, and she does a lot of workouts on her own,” Greco says. “It’s really a lifestyle for her. She currently has trainers in both Los Angeles and Nashville and is even known to take one on the road with her while touring. Instead of eating out, she’ll stock her fridge with healthy greens from the fresh store.”
To get strong, sexy, lean legs like Underwood’s, Greco suggests a series of lunges, squats, stepups, and toe taps combined with a balanced diet of protein, carbs, and fats.
“Have a protein the size of the palm of your hand, 2 cups of green veggies, and a handful of almonds, macadamia nuts, or walnuts with every meal,” Greco advises.
But with how dedicated Underwood is to healthy eating, is cheating allowed, at least every once in a while?
“Definitely!” Greco says. “Just have it before noon so it gives your body enough time to burn the extra calories.”
Now, back to those lunges, squats, stepups and toe taps! Greco gave us the deets on the sexy leg workout he gives all his celeb clients (it’s a toughie but so worth it!).
