Hell yeah that says she was in Harry Potter.
Oh, you didn’t know?
Well, maybe you should. Just kidding. Kind of…
(And I guess this means for those of you who don’t believe me, we’ll have to include some picture evidence later).
But let’s not get too far off track. Julianne Hough is pretty incredible – and not just because she’s absolutely stunning.
She’s most famously known for being a dancer and judge on Dancing With The Stars, but she’s also been in Grease Live, Footloose, and other roles.
I have a feeling dancing might be a part of this routine…
Julianne Hough Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 119 lbs.
Age: 29 years old
Hough stands in as one of the shorter women we’ve seen at SHJ (although she’s not alone in that area), right there with ladies like Scarlett Johansson, Emilia Clarke, Olivia Munn and Natalie Portman who are also under that average 5’5-5’6 range.
But, don’t let this turn you away from any routine.
I make every workout and diet plan to be utilized for any shape or size!
Julianne Hough Diet and Nutrition
Yeah. I told you.
There she is…living it up with Ron, Dean Thomas and the rest of the Gryffindors.
But okay okay, back to the point here.
People Magazine gives us some pretty great info on Hough’s diet and nutrition here:
“I try to cut myself some slack if I’m being consistent with my nutrition and activity,” Hough says. “If I am craving a piece of chocolate I go for something dark to satisfy the craving.”
When it comes to exercise, she says “just try to move your body everyday” and don’t be too hard on yourself if you miss a workout.
I love that.
Cutting slack, or allowing yourself to reload are definitely keys to the sustainability we shoot for at SHJ.
All of our Nutrition Classes (Samurai, Monk, Viking, Hunter Gatherer, Spartan, Minimalist) in The Academy revolve around sustainability, and it’s for a reason.
Oh, but People Magazine gives us even more juicy deets.
Here’s a day’s plan of Hough’s eating (or a model that is similar to what an average day might be like):
4-6 glasses of water a day
Pre-workout (before breakfast)
Green juice with 1 cucumber, spinach, kale, pear, celery, carrot, green apple, ginger, lemon, and beets
Two steamed eggs over easy, with sliced avocado and sliced tomato
1 cup of English Breakfast Tea with skim milk and Stevia in the Raw
Apple Pie smoothie from trainer Harley Pasternak: 5 raw almonds, 1 red apple, 1 small frozen banana, 6 oz. fat free plain Greek yogurt, ½ cup almond milk, ½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, over mixed green salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, hearts of palm, almonds, edamame, banana peppers, and olive oil and squeezed lemon
6 oz. salmon baked with sliced lemon and rosemary, with olive oil and 2 cups sautéed spinach sprinkled with pink salt
4 dark chocolate covered almonds
Which People Magazine finishes with:
With water, seltzer or tea at every meal and green juice before her workout, Julianne “does a great job staying hydrated,” says Atlanta-based dietitian Marisa Moore. Hough also includes enough protein in each meal to build and maintain lean muscle mass. But, adds Moore, “if she’s doing an intense workout, she might consider adding a banana or another carb to help replenish her energy.”
If that’s not some awesome details, I don’t know what is!
Julianne Hough Workout Routine Research
Julianne Hough’s workout routine is something that is widely searched, and there’s a ton of information out there about it.
So, we’re going to do our best to compile it all and turn it into one regime that we can use (like always, duh)!
Starting with Elle Magazine who gives us the quote from Hough:
“I usually try [to work out] five times a week…I love to start my day off with a workout. It doesn’t have to be high-exertion, two hours, let’s go. But anything that gets me up and going. Sometimes it’s an hour and a half, sometimes it’s an hour, sometimes it’s 45 minutes, just depends how I’m feeling on that day.”
I really like that she states “just depends on how I’m feeling on that day”. I try to teach the members of The Academy that I work with to implement this into their training.
Some days you might have it, and some days you might not.
I could go to the gym today and deadlift 500 and then next week 350-400 lbs will be heavy and I just won’t have it in me.
Self.com also gives us some great quotes from Hough as well, starting with:
“My whole thing is, I’m not doing it necessarily to make my body look good—I’m doing it because I love it and it’s fun,” Hough tells SELF. “I feel way better when I’m working out. Once I’ve taken care of myself I can be happy and joyful and do things at my top ability, and I feel like I can give the best version of myself [to other people].”
Which she continues with:
“A lot of people are like, ‘man, you’re so busy, how do you fit it in?’ But that’s my key thing: I don’t ‘fit’ it in, I schedule it in,” she says. For Hough, the morning is the time to get it done. “It sets the tone for the day for the rest of the day,” she says. “But I would not say that I’m a morning person, though. It takes everything that I have to get out of bed.”
And, in that interview she talks about how active of a person she is.
She could do a dance class one day, and then the next a Crossfit inspired beach workout, and then a trampoline fun activity day!
It varies, but she stays active and loves it!
Quite possibly the best resource I found was coming straight from the source at Julianne’s own website.
Here’s a couple incredible quotes from one of her Fitness Q&As that I found particularly important:
- What do you find to be the most effective ab exercise? — Rachel M. on Facebook
I love them all! I find that mixing up my moves is what’s most effective. I like to lay on a box during leg raises, so I can really use my lower abs with each movement. I also love standing exercises for abs where I can really isolate my torso. I sometimes add hand weights to these moves in order to work my obliques too. Both are effective!
- How do you stay on track with eating healthy on the weekends? — @pattilli7 on Instagram
Everything in moderation! I also like to say I’m committing to having a healthy lifestyle rather than using the phrase “dieting.”
- How do you stay motivated? What do you binge on? — @michele_stuurman on Instagram
I stay motivated because I find that I actually FEEL better when I’m putting healthy, yummy food into my body. When I binge, I definitely go straight for the pizza and pasta!
- How do you find time to workout with a busy schedule and travel? — @cegrey on Instagram
I make it a part of my schedule! A lot of people schedule their day and never put their workout in there, but that’s my first priority. I prefer to workout early in the morning because it not only energizes me for the day, but I find that’s the best time to do it before the busy day begins.
- What are your daily morning routines, that you feel set you up for having a healthy and positive day? — @mfannin34 on Instagram
The first thing I do when I wake up is think of 5 things I’m grateful for, which immediately sets my tone for the day. I then snuggle Lexi and Harley for a good 10 minutes, have a healthy breakfast, and head straight to my workout.
- What types of cardio do you do?? Asked by @hollyanne_33 on Instagram
I’ll take a dance cardio class at studios like Body By Simone and Tracy Anderson and take David Zint’s class at Soul Cycle!
How awesome is this?!
