“Beastin It”: A Very Pregnant Jordin Sparks Teams Up With Husband For Intense Workout
Due to give birth to her first child in the spring, you might think that Jordin Sparks is about to take it easy out here, but that is so not the case.
The 28-year-old singer has been hitting the gym consistently with model husband Dana Isaiah. And by hitting the gym, we don’t mean that she’s been on the treadmill or Stairmaster while he is lifting weights somewhere. The couple have actually been working out together, literally using one another as resistance, and working out hard:
In the video, Sparks hits lunges while one leg is strapped in TRX bands, holds planks, does push-ups, squats, planks and even bear crawls like it’s no thing.
For those who might think it’s a little much for a pregnant woman to be executing these moves, Sparks has actually been working out this hard for years now, and it’s part of the reason she was able to shed more than 50 pounds back in 2014.
“Jordin works out for 30 minutes, but it’s the same benefits as an hour workout [because she works out at such a high intensity],” said her former trainer, David Ashley, of her workout routine soon after she showed off the results of her hard work in public. “The high intensity training spikes the metabolism. The metabolism is still spiked for the next 24-hours; we are creating that metabolic consistent.”
She’s managed to keep the weight off after all of these years because she’s not afraid to work hard. If she keeps these type of routines up with Isaiah, she’ll be back to her old self soon after giving birth to her baby boy in a few months. But we’re sure she’s currently more interested in spending quality time with him before the baby comes — even if it’s at the gym.
