Janet Jackson Weight Loss Explained: Her Diet and Exercise

Last winter, Janet Jackson had ballooned up to 180 pounds, and those trademark six pack abs seemed a thing of the past. But look at her now! In just four months, Jackson has shed an incredible 60 pounds and looks fantastic.

The Workout was designed by her trainer Tony. Tony’s workout has Janet doing legs twice a week (reverse lunges, good mornings, toe touches, and leg press pushing back at a 30-degree angle)

Upper body work twice a week (push-ups, pull-downs, chest flies, bicep and tricep supersets and shoulder lateral raises)

Three days of abs and 5-6 days of cardiovascular exercise (including kickboxing, basketball, tennis, baseball, jumping rope, and running)

Janet Jackson’s weight loss explained:

Janet Jackson has been known for gaining weight to like 180 lbs (I am 130, lol! She used to be FAT!)

So how did she ended up losing all that fat and turned into a babe (almost!)

I would give credit to the awesome routine Tony Martinez set up for the blimb.

Legs: Twice a week

Reverse lunges, good mornings, toe touches, and leg press pushing back at a 30-degree angle

Upper body: Twice a week

push-ups, pull-downs, chest flies, bicep and tricep supersets and shoulder lateral raises

Abs: Thrice a week

And 5 days of cardio.

The cardio includes kickboxing, basketball, tennis, baseball, jumping rope and running.

Now how did this routine do such wonders?

The primary reason is that there was a good amount of rest involved leading to substantial lean muscle mass growth as the weights used were mostly bodyweight or lightweight.

Another thing to do noted was that the method of the workout was largely compound, compound workouts end up increasing functional strength and avoid bulk because compound workouts use more muscles and the range of motion involved is comparatively much more complicated.

Her Training in other note was not circuit entirely and not isolating any bodypart either, circuit training does lead to fat loss *entire body circuit training that is* but rarely ends up reinforcing lean muscle mass and if the weights are heavier than 50% of max capacity, ends up constantly breaking down muscle.

Her training was not fixed on muscle groups but something like Monday: Legs, Tuesday: Upper Body, Wednesday: Abs.

This leads to sufficient rest and the best part of her workout was the type of cardio.

As I have always suggested, cardio has to be really changing, if you want to get effects rather than simply taking your calories in minus, if you want a fat burning effect, you can simply keep your cardio very versatile

Janet Jackson’s cardio included kickboxing, basketball, tennis, baseball, jumping rope and running.

Now how does such a diverse cardio section help?

For starters it is impossible to get bored with such a set of routines, You are practically doing something entirely different in mechanics every day.

When the mechanics and muscles used/range of motion used changes so rapidly, the body has no time to adapt to it and keeps burning a lot of fat.

So can you have a routine like Janet Jackson’s?

Sure, just consult a dietician for a great diet too and keep going at it :D
