- Kate Beckinsale, 46, just showed off her toned abs in a new dance video on Instagram.
- The video shows Kate rocking out to “Love in the First Degree” by Bananarama.
- The actress exercises six days a week, doing a mix of cardio and strength training.
Actress Kate Beckinsale posted a hilarious, banana-themed dance video to her Instagram over the weekend (ya know, as one does). In the video, the 46-year-old is dancing in her kitchen while wearing a white two-piece outfit to ’80s pop song “Love in the First Degree” by Bananarama with her cat Willow sitting in a banana pillow, completely unimpressed (ya know, as one’s cat does).
“Willow fully getting sick of banana related teasing now. Sidebar: performed this in assembly aged 13 with eerily similar audience response,” Kate captioned her post.
While Kate’s dance moves are clearly on point (no matter what her audience of one might think), her super fit abs are even more impressive.
She shared with Women’s Health that she works out six mornings a week with her trainer, Brad Siskind, of Gunnar Peterson’s gym.
Before her workouts, Kate eats protein—usually chicken or eggs with grass-fed butter. The rest of the day she opts for salads with radishes, brussels sprouts, and safflower oil; salmon; and the occasional handful of potato chips.
And then things gets serious. At the gym, Kate starts with a full-body workout composed of eight compound exercises that each work two muscle groups simultaneously: a biceps curl as she squats, or sit-ups with combination punches. After the set, she’ll do 90 to 120 seconds of a cardio interval, like rowing or the VersaClimber, then do the eight exercises again—this time with heavier weights, added bands, or faster reps.
After the 45 minutes it takes to complete both circuits, she’ll finish with a cardio interval using a rubber Inertia Wave, or one-leg pushes on a curved SkillMill treadmill. Finally, she ends with a Siskind stretch (Google “Kate Beckinsale flexible” for a terrifying visual aid).
Makes sense why she doesn’t break a sweat dancing it out in her kitchen…
