Bar Paly Reveal her Workout
I try to work out at least 3 times a week. I have a wonderful trainer named Brett Hoebel, who I met while trying to bulk up for my role in Pain & Gain. Yes, you heard right. I was asked to gain 20 lbs for that role! Sorina Luminata, the character I was playing, had a very different lifestyle than I do.
The film’s director, Michael Bay, felt that her physicality should reflect that. Brett taught me to work out with free-weights. As a woman, I always was afraid of weight training, thinking that it would make me look like body builder. The truth is that weight training is an excellent way to get toned up and shape the body. Girls, don’t be afraid of the free-weights!
I would recommend meeting with a trainer first to make sure you do each exercise correctly, and safely. A good trainer will also design a customized workout routine which you can do by yourself, no matter where you are. That’s the beauty of free weights, you don’t actually have to be in the gym with all the machines to work out. You just need a few different sized weights at you house and then presto!
You are out of excuses! When I travel, I take resistance bands with me. They’re light and easy to pack and I can do my same work out routine with them. Finally, for my core strength, I found that a weighted Hula Hoop is a great workout. It burns the tummy fat and is a lot of fun, it’s like being a kid again!
Bar Paly Reveal her Diet
I don’t take any supplements. I prefer to intake my vitamins the natural way, though a diverse diet. The best way to insure you do that is by making sure your daily menu is as colorful as possible. The different color fruits and vegetables provide different vitamins and nutrients, so a variety is important.
Bar Paly Reveal her Beauty Secrets
I also always put on sunblock even in the winter, to protect my skin from the sun damage. Today there are so many great self tanners and alternatives to sun tanning. My go to is St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse. I also make sure to exfoliate my skin a lot. Recently I found a great trick and started washing my face with a natural sea sponge. It’s naturally antibacterial without any harmful chemicals, and it’s gently exfoliates the skin to get rid of the dead skin cells and keep the skin smooth and glowing. For my hair I do a coconut oil mask. I use regular coconut oil that you can buy at any supermarket. It does wonders to the split ends and it smells like your on a vacation!
