Carrie Underwood’s fitness regime changes according to the seasons.
The Cry Pretty singer, who has her own activewear line named CALIA, always manages to fit a workout into her busy schedule, even if she’s on tour.
In an interview with Shape, she explained that she will change up her routine depending on what she’s in the mood for and that is usually dependent on the seasons.
“I’m a bit of a seasonal workout person. If you think about it, in the winter, we’re all bundled up, and we all want to be warm, comfortable, there are a lot of holidays,” she explained. “So, I’ll lift more and do less cardio then and make use of all those extra holiday food calories and build some muscle. In the summer, I want to feel lighter. I want to run and sweat, so I use the temperature and that feeling to lean up a bit and do more outdoor cardio things.”
The 36-year-old got back into the gym following the birth of eight-month-old son Jacob, her second child with husband Mike Fisher, and she’s now beginning to see results, which encourages her to do more.
“If I feel good in my clothes, and I’m starting to see some muscles, it just makes me want to keep going,” Carrie shared. “I enjoy how I feel when running up a flight of stairs or picking up my kids or carrying things is easy. I like seeing muscles and feeling progress, so I’m always looking to lift more or do more reps.”
And sometimes her four-year-old son Isaiah will get involved with her workouts.
“When I go running, if he comes with me, he only stays out there like five minutes anyway, and then he’s like, ‘I’m done with this!’ Sometimes I’ll say, like, ‘Alright buddy, do some push-ups for me!’ He thinks it’s fun,” she added.
