Kate Beckinsale posted two hilarious videos of herself doing yoga while her cat and dog sat on her mat.
Kate made a joke in the caption about how it’s possible she smelled like “droppings.”
The actress also works out with trainer Brad Siskind.
Actress Kate Beckinsale and her pets have been spending lots of time together during quarantine. And the furballs (she has two Persian cats, Clive and Willow, and two dogs named Ingrid and Myf) love to be close to her when she’s doing her at-home yoga workouts.
She shared a couple funny (and relatable) videos on her Instagram of her practicing yoga, with her cat Willow and one of her pups perched on her mat, refusing to give her any space.
“I was feeling like I was possibly having a magical yogic connection with the animals but It has occurred to me it could just as easily be that I smell like a dead pheasant or some droppings,” she captioned her post.
Kate’s abs look super toned in her white bra, and that’s probably because the actress is serious about getting her workouts in. She shared with Women’s Health that she typically works out six mornings a week with her trainer, Brad Siskind, of Gunnar Peterson’s gym.
She starts with a full-body workout composed of eight compound exercises that each work two muscle groups simultaneously. Think: 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).
When it comes to food, Kate likes to get in plenty of protein—usually chicken or eggs with grass-fed butter. She also loves salads packed with radishes, Brussels sprouts, and safflower oil; salmon; and the occasional handful of potato chips.
