Michelle Rodriguez Workout:
As a young girl Michelle Rodriguez was sporty and into rollerblading, biking, and dancing. Rodriguez had never boxed in her life and went through four-and-a-half months of intense boxing training at the Gleason’s gym in Brooklyn. It involved running for 2 ½ miles, followed by half an hour of skipping, lifting weights, drinking protein. “I would do 30 to 40 push-ups a day, 100 sit-ups, lift weights, jog, plus spar with real boxers,” says the 5-foot-5-inch actress.After all that training and doing the movie, Michelle was so impressive as a boxer that people encouraged her to take it up as a profession! The boxing training also helped her lose weight and pack on muscle:
“I gained about a good 25 pounds of muscles. I have a lot more respect for the sport.”
Exercise is all about high-intensity, outdoors adventures for Michelle. She spends her time in the boxing ring, on the surfboard or in yoga sessions, where she relaxes after hardcore workouts. She spent hours a day riding waves for Blue Crush, in the boxing ring for Girlfight, and navigating high-speed chases alongside Vin Diesel for The Fast and the Furious.
Michelle Rodriguez Diet:
When she’s doing high-energy circuit training at the gym and spending long hours in the boxing ring, Michelle has to eat nutritious foods. She’s not a vegetarian but has said: “I’m disgusted every time I do have a piece of beef.” When talking with vegan-inspired website health-today.org, she defended her meat-eating ways. “Salads have feelings too!” she joked.
Rodriguez explained, “I’m not (a vegetarian) but I will have to be because on the ship, it’s a vegan ship – you can’t be a hypocrite; you can’t be sitting there trying to save animals and then killing them. That’s just weird.”
Michelle decided that the key was to start slowly. Her first step was to drink more water to curb the urge to snack. “I was used to putting something in my mouth every five seconds, so I needed a substitute,” she says. To monitor her portion sizes, she began to keep a food diary.
