Tracee Ellis Ross may almost be 50 years old, but she is body goals for every single woman roaming this earth. No, I'm serious, sis has been putting in work and because she is #bodygoals, we are here for alllllll of any routine she has to keep her poppin' physique.
So, you know it goes down when our favorite gal speaks about her workout regimen. We don't question anything, we don't argue. We just pull out our notepad and listen...hard.
We dug a bit deeper into how we can have Ross' abs by Monday, and although Monday isn't looking too good (damnit), according to the actress, the secret to her banging body is attributed to two very key exercises, which all came to the forefront when she put us on to her workout plan, a plan that she has stood loyal to for decades.
She told Fast Company:
"I have been doing the Tracy Anderson Method for almost 10 years, and gyrotonics has been at the core of my self-care for almost 25 years now."
Gyrotonics, you say? Tracey Anderson Method? Oh sis, say less!
According to Google, gyrotonics is an original and unique exercise that opens energy pathways, stimulates the nervous system, increases range of motion, and improves strength and movement efficiency (or basically a rhythmic stretching and guided workout). A major component to gyrotonics is the specialized pulley equipment, which is meant to assist, direct, and challenge.
The Tracey Anderson Method is somewhat similar; it's comprised of exercises that target and strengthen the small, accessory muscles to achieve a long and lean body (a 'dancer's body'). The workouts focus on repetitive movements, lots of reps, and light weights – the whole point is to fatigue your muscles.
*Adds another workout to the list*
Ross regularly credits the Tracey Anderson method on her Instagram, once captioning a photo:
"A mash up of this morning's @tracyandersononlinestudio live stream class. I did my best, did a lot of giggling and talking to myself and made some variations as best I could on the moves I couldn't do (being extra careful). As you all know I love me some @tracyandersonmethod. I love the workouts and have been doing it for years. It keeps me strong and long with a little jiggle. Just like I like!"
Love to see it.
But regardless of you choice in exercise, let's make 2021 the year of our health; a year where no matter what, we are up and moving around in some sort of way. And now that Tracee has entered the chat, here's to hoping we all have those abs on Monday.
