Just a couple of days ago I saw a performance of his on television and I remember that I thought “but how old is Jennifer Lopez already?”. And, thanks to the training he performs, he is able to maintain an enviable level of energy in his shows.
And how does Jennifer Lopez train to stay that good at 50? As we can see in their social networks, the New York artist based her sessions on strength training, working with free weights and pulleys. In both basic exercises and accessories, do not hesitate to work with weight, knowing that this will help you shape your muscles.
Basic exercises such as the bench press or the pull to the chest (which comes to replace the dominated ones if we want to work with our own body weight) and other accessories such as the bicep curl or the high pulley shrinks help you when it comes to winning muscular resistance, basic in their shows of more than two hours.
Working with kettlebells or kettlebells is also part of your training routine. The kettlebells help us to perform ballistic movements, such as the kettlebell swing, and to leave the comfort zone in which we normally find ourselves if we are accustomed to working with dumbbells and bars, by placing the center of mass out of our grip.
The kettlebells are undoubtedly one of the best ways to work your body in full, emphasizing the musculature of our central area, which is involved in every move we make them. If you want to start training, here are five exercises with kettlebells, perfect for beginners.
On other occasions, we have been able to see J Lo combining these workouts with Yoga sessions, ideal to improve joint mobility and to perform strength work with one’s own body weight. If it is a dynamic Yoga session, coordination will also work and even have a certain aerobic component, something that you can take advantage of for your dance numbers.
The long dance rehearsals give that endurance you need in your shows, as a dancer and singer. The combination of these three types of training (strength + mobility + aerobic endurance) is what gives you excellent results that are in your 50s.
