So, you kind of love ‘The Hunger Games.’ Then you’re exactly like me. After my initial resistance to the first book, I dug right in and tore through the entire trilogy. I guess that makes me a Hunger Games addict. Guilty as charged.
Like most Hunger Games fans, I’m eagerly awaiting the release of the first movie later this month. And besides camping out at the premiere and cooking up this collection of delicious and healthy Hunger Games recipes inspired by the series, I also plan to put on my best Katniss Everdeen impression by doing some hardcore training leading up to the big release.
Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss in the film, didn’t place much focus on her diet to get in shape for her action-packed role, but rather on her fitness regimen. Since Katniss was an archery goddess, we, like Jennifer, know that buff arms are a must. Then comes a strong back to quickly draw our bow. Swift legs for sprinting are a given. And last but not least? Cardiovascular endurance for when – not if – we need to run for our lives.
To help get you in shape for ‘The Hunger Games’ premiere on March 23, here are some fabulous indoor and outdoor workouts that you can complete at home, outside, or at the gym. Follow these routines and you’ll be in contender shape in no time.
