Eva Longoria Workout Routine Friday

Here’s the Friday Eva Longoria Workout Routine. Unless otherwise stated, do 15 reps of each exercise. Warm up with 5-10 minutes of cardio, to get your heart rate going. Do any type of cardio you like. Or, you may want to use a warm up video. Try doing the first 2 rounds (or all 3) of the Sexy Bikini Body Cardio Workout.

Legs – Do circuit 3 times (1 min rest between sets), 15 reps:

Chest & Back – Do circuit 3 times (1 min rest between sets), 15 reps:

Abs – Go for 30 reps, 3 sets:

Sometimes, personal trainer Patrick Murphy says they change things up, and do one-legged squats. This requires more balance and works your core, too. Instead of medicine ball swings, Eva Longoria will do the “clean and press.” All the exercises in the Eve Longoria workout improve her body, especially the leg work, as Eva Longoria says:

 With all the the lunges, squats and leg presses, I’ve gained an inch of muscle in my butt.


Eva Longoria Workout Routine Descriptions

The Eva Longoria workout routine is about fast-paced circuits, so that you don’t have to spend much time doing cardio. Even if you hate cardio, you have to do something that gets your heart pumping. After your heart rate is elevated for awhile, your body goes into ‘fat burning’ mode.  This is when you burn calories by lifting and doing fast-paced circuits.

Compound movements are exercises that incorporate more than one body part. They are the opposite of isolation moments that focus on just one body part, say biceps. By doing compound movements, like in the Eva Longoria workout, you are able to work multiple muscle groups at once, and get done faster.

  1. Wow I find this information very helpful and motivating. Does not only focus on beauty tips, but also on healthy lifestyle. Thanks Eva, you are the best.

  2. Hi Chris,I’d like to know if I can do skipping in place of cardio for this workout and I’d also like to know which size weight should I use for this workout

    Thanks a 1000000000 for ur effort chris ;)

    • Sure, my only concern is if that will get your heart rate up enough. You want to get to at least 120. If you think you can get there, then by all means, do any cardio that you love. Use a weight where you’re fatigued by the last rep (you feel a slight burn/you feel like you can’t do any more, etc.) Thanks!

  3. Hey chris….iv got a HUGE problem,iv got a big bone structure,like my knee caps n shoulders my weight is abt 65kg n I’m 5’55 in height,iv seen the different workouts n I I’ve got a liking to this 1 n the kim kardashian workout,but plz help me in choosing a w0rkout even if its not these two,PLEASE

  4. You’ve picked 2 great workouts. Start with the Eva Longoria workout, as I think it’s a bit easier. Then, graduate to the Kim Kardashian workout when you’re ready. Don’t worry too much about being big boned. A person with a large frame should weigh 10% more than a person with a medium frame. And, a person with a medium frame should weigh 10% more than a person with a small frame. You can find more discussion on being big boned here.

    • She’s great. I have read parts of her book and seen parts of her workouts. There’s a lot of her stuff on youtube, if you want to to check her out there. Her workout videos are pretty cheap, too. I plan on doing more about the stars that work with her in the future. So, plan for that. I just don’t know if it would be valuable to say, “Hey, this star works with Tracy Anderson, so go buy her DVD.” But, that would be my advice to you–to try one of her videos for sure. Let me know if you like it!

  5. I’m reading ders a lot of people complaining that its too much strain for the abs…..or should I just start with eva longorias workout

    • Start with Eva’s. But, also try Tracy’s when you feel your fitness level has increased. Also, if there are abs workouts that feel tough, just take it easy. Maybe skip them altogether at first. Slowly ease your way into any fitness routine. Focus on form and breathing.
