It’s leg day at Carrie Underwood’s house! The country singer, 38, just shared an Instagram snap from her home gym, showing off her super toned gams post-workout.
“About to get some extra credit in this afternoon with the @fit52 13-Card Draw!” the American Idol alum wrote, shouting out the workout app she developed with her trainer Eve Overland, called Fit52. The app is designed around a deck of cards, so every workout has either 52 exercises or 26 exercises, which are chosen based on the cards you pull. “Extra credit” is 13 exercises, per Carrie’s post. The number on the card you draw is the number of reps per exercise.
While Carrie and Overland found a fun way to mix up a workout, the Women’s Health cover star nonetheless puts in the work. Overland travels with the seven-time Grammy winner when she’s on tour, and sometimes, Carrie works out all seven days in a week.
In 2020, the “Love Wins” singer told WH that her leg workout consisted of six supersets of three moves, each done for three or four sets. Those exercises included 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, ouch.)
Plus, Carrie crushes her cardio routine 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.
Pre-workout, Carrie fuels up with a tofu or egg-white scramble, Ezekiel toast, berries, and coffee for breakfast. Post-workout, at lunchtime, she’ll have a sandwich with Tofurky, tomato, avocado, red onion, spinach, and mustard. For a snack, she’ll grab a green smoothie or protein bar. She doesn’t eat meat, so for dinner, she makes roasted veggies and a stir-fry. Her vice is red wine: “It’s good for my heart, right?!”
Even though she keeps to a pretty strict diet and stays consistent with her workout routine, Carrie is careful to keep her workouts and meals varied. “Physical fitness makes everything else possible,” she said.
And that includes looking super strong in a cute pair of shorts.
