You've seen Britney's awesome cover shoot photos, and you know some of her favorite sexy things. But if you really just want to know how she gets those ah-mazing abs, then you're in luck: We've got an exclusive peek at a week's worth of her fitness journal. Here's what it takes to get Brit's bod.
Cardio and light weights for 45 minutes
"Heading to my [home] gym to kick off my week right. I like my workouts to be effective in a short amount of time. I start with 20 minutes of intense cardioÃ¢â‚¬”usually runningÃ¢â‚¬”move on to light free weights, body-weight exercises such as pushups, squats, and situps, then finish it off with a stretch."
Totally Drenched at Drenched Fitness for an hour
"I love this class. It's high-energy and combines treadmill work with circuit training. Being in a group setting pushes me to work harder."
Swimming laps for 30 minutes
"Forty laps down! Swimming always gets my heart rate up."
Totally Drenched for an hour
"It's a good thing I had a smoothie for breakfast! Some days I need that extra energy to get through the third set."
Britney tells us she sips a blend of milk, ice, and ViSalus shake mix before workouts: "It's the one protein shake that actually tastes good," she says.
Dance rehearsal for 90 minutes
"We're on a break from my Vegas show. I like to run through the choreography to keep it fresh in my mind. Chase and Nikky [two of my dancers] are coming over to rehearse with me."
Totally Drenched for an hour; swimming laps for 30 minutes
"Time to kick it into overdrive: two workouts today. I feel amazing. Swimming really relaxes me after doing that super-high-energy workout at Drenched. I'm going to sleep well tonight!"
Light weights and cardio for 45 minutes
"Got up early and made scrambled egg whites and wheat toast before I hit my [home] gym."
