Angelina Jolie looking radiant and healthAngelina Jolie has once again been voted as one of Hollywood’s hottest celebrities. However, we still know little about her daily routines to stay in such great shape. She is slim, and has some good muscle tone. She suffers from being a bit veiny at times, but maybe this is just after an intensive training session. It is possible that now just running around after her family is enough to keep her in shape!

Her career as a cinema action figure started with her portrayal of Lara Croft in the first Tomb Raider film, then continued with roles in Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Wanted. Being married to Brad Pitt also helped to elevate her to higher levels of stardom. She is a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN, and has adopted children that have been in serious need of help. She is certainly a role model for all. So, how does she do it?

Angelina Jolie’s Fitness Training for Tomb Raider

We know that in preparation for her role in Tomb Raider in 2000 she took up kickboxing workouts and weapons training, including sword fighting and spear throwing. She also learned to row, dive and even play soccer.

Martial arts training provides an excellent full body workout, and weapons training add further resistance to this. Wielding weapons of any nature requires a high level of athleticism. Much of her training involved working on a heavy punch bag to build kicking strength in her hips and thighs, as well as upper body strength and endurance. A one hour kick boxing session can burn up to 800 calories for someone of Angelina’s frame.

“I’m doing bungee ballet and I’m doing diving, weapons training with the Special Forces. I’m doing kickboxing – everything from soccer to rowing. One British thing is to learn manners – they’re sending me to manners school! I’m glad that’s so funny!” IGN Movies Interview with Angelina Jolie.

Angelina Jolie and Yoga

Less surprising is that Angelina likes to keep in shape with yoga workouts. For her frame, a muscle toning yoga session is an excellent choice. It ensures that she remains sleek and strong, without getting too bulky. Yoga also provides an opportunity to unwind, relax and have time to yourself, which is important for someone as busy as Angelina. To maintain firm muscles and keeping the fat off, daily Sun Salutations are highly recommended.

Angelina Jolie’s Diet Regime

Again, we do not know much about her diet. During her Tomb Raider training, when she first became a more athletic action figure of a woman, she was eating a high protein, low carbohydrate diet to help build muscle and keep fat to a minimum. She was also drinking protein shakes to help beef her up a little. Like models and athletes, she also consumed several smaller meals everyday rather than the standard 3 large meals. Other sources have suggested that Angelina follows a “stone age diet“, i.e. avoidance of wheat based foods and red meats, with emphasis on raw salads, fruits and fish.

She admitted that she actually became rather fond of sea bass, vegetables and soy milk, going as far to say that all she ever drank was soy milk! However, remember that everyone is allowed a day off the strict diet. Angelina and Brad were recently seen at a McDonalds Drive Thru’. So cheese burgers and ice cream could well feature on her menu sometimes. Just not too often!

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have got engaged. Congrats! They already have 6 or so kids, great to hear that they will tie the know. Also great to see some Holly celebs do stuff their way, in their own time. About time! Gotta love Brad and Angelina really – they are genuine, normal people who just happen to be popular actors.

    Dhruv, Angelina has not given birth to 6 children! She gave birth to a girl (Shiloh) in 2006 and twins in 2008 (Knox and Vivienne). The other children were adopted.
