Boston Celtics Ray Allen Workout and Diet

The NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers head back to Boston tied up thanks to the performance of Ray Allen in Game 2. The 34-year-old vet has had to overcome an injury-plagued career and multiple surgeries to win his first championship in 2008. However, thanks to an improved workout and diet, Ray Allen and the Boston Celtics are looking for their second title in three years.

“In an effort to get him more explosive, we’ve had to try and teach him how to land all over again,” said Norton.

As revealed in Mens’ Fitness, Ray Allen started working with Boston Celtics strength and condition coaches, Walter Norton Jr. and Bryan Doo prior to the 2007-08 season. Allen had just had surgery on both his ankles, so the trainers had to come up with a workout program that would help his joints. In particular, Ray Allen trains with resistance bands while squatting or lunging to incorporate his glutes into his jumping and mechanics.

Post image for Crazy Celebrity Workouts

We had a few crazy celebrity workouts come across the news this week that we just couldn’t find completely believable so we thought we share them with you and see what you had to say…

Mel B…no way right?
Pop singer Mel B told George Lopez on Lopez Tonight that she stays in shape by having sex with her husband five times a day.

“Today was only three because I had a busy day,” Mel said. “My husband tapped out, he was like, ‘It’s a wrap.’ Me and my husband, we’re the same age, he’s my best friend and I guess we’re both just perverts with each other. What else can I say?”

TCW says…Well, if you are looking to burn some calories having sex will certainly get the job done, but we just can’t imagine it’s happening 5 times a day for Mel B.  The former Spice Girl and DWTS contestant is currently hosting Oxygen’s weight loss show Dance Your Ass Off, so we find it hard to believe she has the time to pull off that many sessions a day.  Or maybe we are just jealous.

Jennifer Love Hewitt does what?
“I’ve run on my treadmill in heels thinking that it would make better leg muscles,” said Jennifer Love Hewitt. “It doesn’t. It just hurts your back. And I’ve gotten on the treadmill with a scoop of ice cream. I was like ‘At least I’m working out.’”

TCW says…Most people do calf raises, Jennifer Love Hewitt runs on the treadmill in heels…wow.  We are glad she says it doesn’t work, we could’ve had a lot of injuries with that advice floating around.  Jennifer Love Hewitt also has eaten ice cream on the treadmill.  We’ll go ahead and assume that if you are on this site then you know that isn’t a good idea.

Gwyneth Paltrow Celebrity Diet The Clean Program

Every Friday this month we will feature one of the five latest and greatest celebrity diets for spring. Celebrities use these diets to cleanse toxins, lose weight, and maintain their Hollywood bodies. Check in every week to learn more celebrity diets!

This Week: Clean Program

Favorite celebrity diets are often cleanses. This week’s celebrity diet is Clean Program - a cleansing diet used by celebrities such as Donna Karen and Gwyneth Paltrow (check out her workout with Tracy Anderson here). This cleanse is a doctor-created, three-week diet plan allowing two shakes and one meal per day, for a total caloric intake of 1,100 to 1,500 per day.

Like many celebrity diets, Clean Program has many benefits, but also has its downsides. On the one hand, the cleanse provides benefits including weight loss and cleansing toxins. On the other hand, it may leave you feeling hungry.  Moreover, once you return to normal eating, you are likely to regain weight. Clean Program provides a cleansing effect, but is not sustainable in the long term. If you are interested in trying this celebrity diet, A 21-day cleanse is available online for $350.

Check out this sample menu from Clean Program:

Breakfast: Shake made from brown-rice protein powder, plus herbal supplements in pull form to curb cravings and facilitate fat burning.

Lunch: Stir-fried chicken and veggies with buckwheat noodles, plus herbal supplements. Vegetarian option: Cucumber and carrot slices served with hummus, tabbouleh and marinated kale with radish and pine nuts, plus herbal supplements. (Recipes are included with the plan.)

Dinner: Shake made from brown-rice protein powder, plus more herbal supplements.

If you are interested in trying a cleanse, but don’t like Clean Program or want to check out your options before deciding, read our previous Celebrity Diets for Spring post about Blueprint Cleanse.
