Elizabeth Banks’s lower body workout routine is obviously effective. This is an Emmy Award-nominated film and television actress best known for her work in ‘Spider-Man,’ ’30 Rock,’ ‘W.,’ ‘Pitch Perfect’ and ‘The Hunger Games.’ She might have just reached her forties…But she still manages to keep a healthy physique and toned lower body.

What’s the secret to her enviable lower half? Well, for starters she doesn’t just exercise she keeps a close eye on her diet too. She tends to avoid eating any ‘white carbs’ like rice, pasta, and bread. That way she is able to keep herself lean and healthy.

Elizabeth Banks shares her Lower Body Secrets

The key to getting a healthy, lean body is, of course, eating an abundance of lean proteins, vegetables, and healthy fats. Elizabeth says she also sticks to only drinking water and tea as her primary liquid intake.

This doesn’t mean that you have to cut out junk food entirely. According to Elizabeth, she chooses to hide her stash instead.  She isn’t a fan of living life too restrictively. I must say it’s a really good idea. I mean, when you’re hungry you usually want to grab the first thing your eyes land on when you open the fridge. But, if junk food is stashed away, it’s out of sight!

People magazine reported that the actress sticks to a steady high-intensity strength routine. Banks maintain this consistently and tries not to overdo it by only training a few days a week with her personal trainer. Having said that, she doesn’t like doing the same workout and enjoys mixing things up.

In case you didn’t know, this gorgeous actress has children of her own as well.

Having children and maintaining your health

Between juggling her busy acting career and her family lifestyle, she still keeps herself in tip-top shape. In fact, she keeps herself fit by getting more involved with her kids and joining in in their activities. As a mom of two boys, Elizabeth doesn’t want to laze around on the couch while her sons get active. So she tries her best to participate in extreme sports with them whilst on a family holiday.

Whether you have kids, the best way to keep your body in good shape is by moving it in any way that works. Train your legs, glutes, and abs with the Elizabeth Banks lower body workout.

These compound exercises will keep your butt and legs super toned and firm whilst engaging the rest of your body.

1. Lunge, Lift and Twist

You can begin by placing your feet together and hands clasped at your chest. Take a big step back and sink into a lunge until both your knees bend to 90 degrees. Push back up strongly and draw your back knee up towards your chest to meet your elbows, twisting your torso as you do. Aim for three sets of 10-16 reps with each side.

NOTE: You can add a dumbbell or kettle bell if you’d like to increase the intensity of the exercise.

2. Static Squat With A Side Reach

Begin with your feet wide apart and your toes turn out. Sink into a plié squat, with arms above your head – holding a Pilates ball if you have one. Holding the squat position, lean over towards one knee, pause for a moment, then straighten up and lean towards the other knee. Aim for three sets of 10-16 reps.

3. Superman With A Leg Lift

Lie on the ground with your chin resting on your hands. Keeping both legs straight, lift one leg up as high as you can. Pause for a moment then lower back down to your starting position. Aim for three sets of 10-16 reps, alternating legs.

NOTE: Repeat this circuit between 3-5 times, and you’ll really feel the burn.

In closing

Elizabeth  Banks is a great example of being disciplined and consistent with her fitness routine. The key to getting a healthy, lean body is eating an abundance of lean proteins, vegetables, and healthy fats. And drinking lots of pure water.
