She tries to work out seven days a week.
ICYMI, it’s now ~officially~ summer. Country music star Carrie Underwood, 37, celebrated the huge event by sharing an Instagram bikini pic—and she looks amazing.
“First day of summer! Loving this swim combo!” she captioned her abs-olutely fabulous post, before tagging her activewear line Calia by Carrie. The black and white bikini is super cute and Carrie looks super toned and strong, of course— a fact that plenty of people noticed.
“You look incredible!!” one person wrote. “SMOKE SHOW!!!” her trainer, Erin Oprea said.
Yeah… it’s kinda hard to miss the fact that Carrie’s abs look ridiculous in this photo. They’re cut, and she has what appears to be the beginning of a six pack. Of course, Carrie works really, really hard for that body.
For starters, she tries to work out every day. “If I can work out seven days a week—which doesn’t happen, but if I can—I’m going to,” she recently told Women’s Health. “Because the next week, I might get two days.”
When she works out, she usually does a combo of strength training and cardio, and she doesn’t hold back. Carrie’s leg workout, for example, consists of six sets of three moves, each done for three or four sets, like tuck jumps, Romanian deadlifts (with 30- to 35-pound dumbbells), walking lunges (with 20- to 25-pound dumbbells), and elevated sumo squats (with a 50-pound dumbbell).
For cardio, she likes to run outside or do small challenges on the treadmill. “I have to set goals for myself: ‘Every 15 minutes I’m going to hit 1.25 miles, then by the end of an hour I’ll have run 5 miles,’ ” she said.
She also just completely owned a push-up challenge on TikTok like it was NBD, with form that is totally on-point.
On the food front, Carrie said that she’s pretty regimented with her diet. “I love rules,” she told Women’s Health. “This is how I feel good about myself, and this is how I operate.” So, she tracks her calories and macros (the amount of protein, carbs, and fat she consumes daily) on the MyFitnessPal app, with the goal of eating 45% carbs, 30% fat, and 25% protein on the reg.
She tends to reach for a tofu or egg-white scramble, Ezekiel toast, berries, and coffee in the morning, followed by a sandwich with Tofurky, tomato, avocado, red onion, spinach, and mustard for lunch. She’ll have a green smoothie or protein bar for a snack and then dive into roasted veggies and a piece of vegan chicken or a tofu stir-fry for dinner.
Carrie is so on-point with her fitness that she actually wrote a nutrition and fitness book that was released earlier this year called Find Your Path: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong With Fit52Life, along with trainer Eve Overland and nutritionist Cara Clark.
And that, my friends, is how she happens to look like that in a bikini.
