Jessica Alba shows off incredible bkini body on Shape cover

Between balancing motherhood, movies and running her $1b Honest Company empire, Jessica Alba still finds time in her busy schedule to maintain a toned figure. In the latest issue of Shape magazine, the 34-year-old actress admitted she’s not a fan of exercise. ‘Working out sucks!’ she said. Despite her confession, the mother-of-two showed off the fruits of her labor in the gym posing in colorful bikinis and revealing monokinis.

‘I’m not going to lie. Working out sucks,’ she told the publication.’I have to break a sweat or I don’t feel like I’ve gotten anything done.’ ‘When I only have 30 minutes, I’ll do a series of burpees, mountain climbers, squat jumps, planks, and a few sun salutations,’ she revealed.

‘I love taking classes, because I’m surrounded by other people and that keeps me motivated and accountable. These days, I do power yoga with light weights in a 105-degree room, so it’s a mix of hot yoga and strength training. I also spin. The key for me is good music, like 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Beyonce,’ Alba confessed.



Her fitness routine has been a part of her life that has been shaped just in the last decade. ‘I attribute my athletic body to the martial arts, gymnastics, dance, and strength training I did while filming Dark Angel. That’s made me strong and really set the bar,’ she shared.

Dark Angel is one of the first major TV roles for Jessica having starred in the James Cameron-created series from 2000 to 2002. ‘I wasn’t truly confident about my body until I had my daughters, Honor [aged seven] and Haven [aged three],’ Jessica continued. 


‘I felt more comfortable in my own skin after they were born. Plus, if I want them to be happy with their bodies, I need to walk the walk.’ Jessica’s physique is not all attributed to fitness. Diet is of utmost importance as well. One of her favorite healthy treats is a homemade green smoothie. ‘I was never a big breakfast person – I used to just pound coffee and a banana in the morning – but recently I started making this shake using vegan protein powder, matcha green tea powder, a banana, coconut water, and ice.


‘I drink it before a workout and it doesn’t make me feel too full. Or I can have it afterward and feel satisfied until lunch.’ And even her guilty pleasure is somewhat healthy. ‘I’m addicted to popcorn,’ she said.

‘I eat it throughout the day. I’m a scatterbrain with lots of things to do at once, and eating popcorn helps me concentrate. It’s my way of dealing with my mind wandering off.’
