LeAnn Rimes: How Fitness Changed My Life
How She Stays Fit
How She Keeps Her Body Strong: "In every city I go to on tour, I research a gym or a place to go running."
Her Cardio Routine: "I take a jump rope with me for cardio. I skip rope for 10 to 12 minutes at a time, at a really fast pace, and it burns an enormous number of calories per minute. When I first started jumping, I couldn't do it at all. Two minutes and I was done. Over. Now? I'm like Rocky!"
Her Circuit Training: "I do weights, followed by five minutes of cardio, another circuit of weights, another five minutes of cardio and so on."
Her Abs: "For abs, I do crunches while sitting on a Bosu ball, three sets of 25 reps. Another exercise: Standing with my feet hip-width apart and holding a 15-pound weight in each hand while I bend from side to side. I also do reverse crunches, lying on a bench and pulling my legs in with a medicine ball between my knees. That one hurts!"
