fitnessbytes: lighten up a little!

“The Jake Gyllenhaal workout plan … starts with growing long, long hair,” he joked with Entertainment Tonight Canada. To keep tone, he says, “Wash, shampoo, then condition. Washing works the biceps and then the triceps by conditioning. And vigorously rubbing all of your body with soap really defines the abs and the pectoral muscles. And if you do squats while you’re bathing — that’s it!” The actor may be yoshing, but when it comes to your health and fitness it’s ok to lighten up a little. Nothing is worth it unless you’re having fun! Being fit isn’t only about building muscles or losing weight; it’s about your entire well-being and ENJOYING life. “I wanted to do [this movie] because it was about taking myself a little less seriously and having a good time,” Jake says of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. While he famously bulked up for the role, he’s since dropped the super hardcore regimen, which he also takes lightly, saying, “I don’t have any muscles anymore now. It’s all just whittled down to little twigs. I walk around unable to move my arms.” In the end, it’s how you feel — not necessarily the physical — results that matter most.
