The Bachelor Jason Mesnick celebrity fitness workout diet

Last season on The Bachelor, fans watched in shock as bachelor Jason Mesnick decided to switch between the woman he chose on the finale and the woman he sent home. After the finale filmed, Jason left the show and pursued a relationship with his chosen fiancé, Melissa Rycroft, but soon realized that his true feelings were for the runner-up Molly Malaney. On the post-finale “After the Final Rose” episode, Jason broke up with Melissa and asked Molly whether she was interested in giving their love another chance. It turns out that Molly was the right choice for Jason, and their marriage will air on television tonight on “The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding.”

At first, everyone loved Jason Mesnick. He was a single dad with a big heart and a hot body. Although many fans were furious when he broke Melissa’s heart on television, today the anger has subsided and fans are excited to see Jason’s “happily ever after.”

To prepare for his big day, Jason needed to be in top shape. During his season on The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick explained his views on health and fitness to Active Health Network. He says that exercise has always been an important party of his life. In fact, Jason says he has worked out 5-days a week since he was 13-years old. He recalls that in college he would spend 2-hours per day at the gym. His routine consisted of one hour of cardio, one hour of weights, and a bunch of sit-ups and stretching. In fact, before Jason became the bachelor he wanted to start a national organization to fight childhood obesity. Recently, he gave up his 2-hour workouts and started circuit training. He enjoys circuit training because he finds it more fun than his old routine, and two of his great friends own a circuit training studio called Elite Fitness Training.

Jason Mesnick also has healthy eating habits. He does not follow a strict diet, but tries to eat everything in moderation. Jason says he loves hamburgers, but knows not to eat them everyday. Instead, he tries to eat them once a month, which makes him look forward to them even more. He also drinks a lot of water and eats plenty of vegetables. He says if he does these two things, everything else falls into place. Additionally, Jason avoids having a lot of snacks around. He does not believe in dieting, and feels healthy eating is a lifestyle choice.

Tim Howard Soccer Workout

Today, we continue our look at the 2010 World Cup and the soccer workout routines of the United States National Team stars with a review of U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard and his agility workout.  Howard who suffered a rib injury in the United States opening round match with England says he will be ready to play this Friday when the U.S. takes on Slovenia in pool play.

Men’s Health recently revealed the training secrets of four members of the U.S. squad, including those of Howard, with soccer workout plans for endurance, strength, speed and agility.  Our previous post featured the endurance training Clint Dempsey used to prepare for the World Cup.

Howard, who plays for Everton in the English Premier League focuses his training on speed, balance, and range of motion for his soccer workout routine. “Tim has to be able to shift his body weight and throw himself in any direction, without any preparation,” says Steve Tashjian, fitness coach for Everton.

“I’m constantly strengthening my core because that’s what gives me the ability to react faster and the stability to control my body better,” says the 31 year-old keeper.  Tim Howard also does explosive lifting, jumping drills using a Verti-Max and lots of boxing.  “Sparring accelerates my hand speed, improves my footwork, and makes my punching more powerful,” says Howard.

Test Your Agility

Tashijian recommends using the T-test to measure your agility.  Here’s how to do it:

Set up markers in a T configuration, 10 yards for the stem and 5 yards out to each side. Ask a friend to time you. Start at the base of the T, sprint to the top, side-shuffle to the left, side-shuffle all the way (10 yards) to the right, side-shuffle back to the middle, and backpedal to the start.

Average – more than 12 seconds
Great – 10 to 12 seconds
World Class – less than 10 seconds (Howard does it in 9.6)

Post image for Harry Potter Star Emma Watson Says “I Don’t Aspire to be Super-Skinny”

Emma Watson has come a long way since she was first cast as brainy Hermione Granger in the astronomically successful Harry Potter series almost ten years ago. As one of Britain’s youngest millionaires, the face for every fashion luminary from Burberry’s Christopher Bailey to Karl Lagerfeld, and the heroine in Perks of Being a Wallflower  – Emma Watson has skyrocketed to one of Hollywood’s most talked-about actresses.

This summer has been especially hectic for the young actress. Preparing for the final Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 meant countless promotions, premieres, and press conferences around the world – which, in turn, meant spending a lot of time in the spotlight.

To always look her best at every event, Emma Watson follows a routine of mild diet and reasonable exercise. “My philosophy is to eat what you like and be healthy and exercise,” she says. Generally, her diet plan involves foods that contain low amounts of sugar, saturated fat and salt. She also stays away from junk foods, and instead opts for fresh fruits, vegetables, leans meats and healthy salads. Emma is adamant about one thing, however – she can’t stand Hollywood putting pressure on girls to be thin. “If I feel like I have to work out four hours a day, and count the calories of everything I put in my mouth, and obsess about how I look the whole time, I will go mad,” she says. “I don’t diet and I don’t aspire to be super-skinny. It’s not inspirational at all for me. I love food and I love cooking, and I love having nice meals.” Indeed, she counts cinnamon bagels, chocolate, and pasta among her favorite foods. “Luckily, I exercise a lot,” she explains.
