Jennifer Aniston on her favourite fitness move

While we always try our best not to compare ourselves to celebrities, especially when it comes to our bodies, we’re still always interested to hear about their latest favourite workout or fitness regime. After all, they have access to the best trainers in the world, so why not learn a tip or two from them?

So when Jennifer Aniston recently revealed what her new favourite workout is, we were all ears.

Talking to POPSUGAR, the Friends star revealed that her ‘workouts change all the time,’ thanks to her ever-hectic schedule that involves a lot of constant travelling and long days.

A by-product of this is that her workout routine sometimes has to take a backseat, as she spends a lot of her days and nights in hotels and trailers. To get around this, she tries to squeeze in moments of exercise whenever and wherever she can: ‘I always have five to eight-pound weights in my trailer [or] in my hotel rooms if I’m away. And if I’m watching television or winding down, reading emails, [I] just use my weights.’

Right now, the 53-year-old actress told POPSUGAR that she’s ‘really focusing on Pilates,’ and that she loves working her core with three moves: Russian twists, bicycle crunches and planks. That’s right, planks – the full-body move that most of us curse – Aniston cites as one of her favourite arm exercises.

‘I love a three-minute plank,’ Aniston revealed. We can barely manage one minute, but when you look at Jen An’s toned and sculpted arms, we reckon she might be on to something.

Alongside brutal 3-minute planks, the actress also discussed how she likes to start her mornings with mindfulness exercises. ‘I really, really give a lot of credit to morning meditation,’ she said. ‘Don’t just mindlessly wake up. Wake up, take a moment. Don’t look at your phone… I’m having mindful mornings… [to] observe my thoughts, so I actually know what I’m doing and I understand my focus for the day.’
