While weighted squats are already hard enough and always result in a serious booty burn when done correctly, Biel ratcheted things up a notch—or 100—with her latest gym routine. In a recent Instagram post, the actress showed off some pistol squats, an über-tough move that requires a wild amount of lower-body strength and balance. And this fit mama's variation aren't just any pistol squats: She chooses to rep it out while also holding weights and balancing on one leg, midair on a box. NBD.
Even though Biel makes the single-leg squats seem super easy, her trainer Ben Bruno—who also works with Kate Upton and Chelsea Handler—is sure to point out on his own Instagram the move is anything but: These modified pistol squats require a lot of strength, balance, and control. And while a sweat-inducing workout pre-awards show is a great strategy to help Biel feel her best while strutting down the red carpet, Bruno really only has one concern: "I just hope she’s not so sore that she can’t sit down for the show," he jokes.
