​Tracee Ellis Ross Says This Method Keeps Her Body Healthy & Strong

*Adds another workout to the list*

Tracee Ellis Ross

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.

Da’Vinchi has appeared in many television series such as All American and Grown-ish but it was his role in BMF as Terry Flenory that helped propel his career forward.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.

Have you ever wondered how some people tend to get over breakups easily, and others have more of a difficult time? The zodiac signs are always telling a story, and the story of love is written in the stars. Some signs naturally follow their emotions more and live by the heart. Others signs focus on balancing their head with their heart and can rationalize this type of change in their life, such as a breakup. People get over breakups in their own way and in their own time, but wouldn’t it be nice to understand more about how you process this experience yourself, or how someone you know or have been involved with gets over a breakup?
