Rutina Wesley’s Workout Secrets

Rutina Wesley's workoutTrue Blood‘s Rutina Wesley shared her secrets to working out and staying in tip-top shape with Fitness Magazine. “I do a mix of cardio and strength—the elliptical machine and weight lifting—three times weekly,” revealed the actress. “But a lot of my agility comes from being a dancer; I trained at Juilliard. I also do yoga. It helps me relax and let go of the crazy character I play.”

Wesley’s great muscle tone is enviable, particularly in an industry where many women are rewarded for being thin rather than fit. “About every other day, I do a special 30-20-10 push-up circuit: 30 push-ups and 30 triceps dips, then 20 of each, then 10 of each.”

Not only is being fit important to playing her character on the show, it’s part of how Wesley lives her life to the fullest. “My body is a reflection of how grateful I am for my life and my health; there are a lot of people less fortunate than me. And I still want to have these arms and legs when I’m 75.”

I think she's right to alternate what she does; you don't get bored, and the muscles have time to recover.
