Our latest Beauty of the Week, Jasmin Johnson, is a self-proclaimed fitness freak. She gave JET her top five exercise and workout tips for a more fit and healthy bod:
Tip #1: Run, Forrest!
Jasmin says running is her go-to exercise for cardio–whether it’s in the gym on a treadmill or outside pounding the pavement. She recommends starting your workouts off with a run for at least five minutes, though she runs for 30.
Tip #2: A little goes a long way
Target-area workouts are a good way to avoid tiring your body out. Jasmin says do one zone a day. “Arms and abs on Monday.Tuesday you might rest,” she says. “Then Wednesday, do legs, back and chest.”
Tip #3: Sans meat
Cutting out meat has been the most difficult thing for Jasmin, especially being a Southern girl. But she says she’s in the process of eliminating it from her diet in hopes of one day becoming vegan.
Tip #4: H2O
We’ve all heard it before–and we all know it’s true. Water, water and more water! Not only does it quench your thirst after a workout, it does wonders for your skin, digestion and more.
Tip #5: A vitamin a day
Jasmin suggests taking a vitamin supplement everyday. She especially likes B12 vitamins which help a great deal with energy and digestion. “They’re real,” she says.
