COUNTRY star Carrie Underwood’s workout routine has been revealed.
The country singer’s trainer, Eve Overland, revealed the eight-time Grammy winner’s workout routine in detail.
The night of her Grammy acceptance, Underworld strolled onto the stage, stunning viewers with her toned legs — a physique her trainer says is no easy feat to achieve.
The singer incorporates a mix of compound exercises into her routine, making sure to train her upper and lower body as well as opposing muscle groups.
She also switches up her workouts daily, focusing on different muscle groups day by day.
“Day one could be upper-body push exercises, like chest presses and triceps extensions, and lower-body pull exercises, like hamstring curls and deadlifts,” Eve explained.
“Day two could be upper-body pull, like lat pull-downs and biceps curls, and lower-body push, like squats and lunges.”
The switch-up also prevents Underwood from injuring herself or getting burnout: “She gets a lot of frequency with lower-body exercises without overworking it on any given day,” Eve added.
“This approach has contributed to her amazing strength as well as sculpted physique.”
Underwood’s workout philosophy includes sticking to the tried-and-true variations of squats, lunges, and deadlifts: “She likes to stick with the basics because they work,” said Overland.
“Not to mention, it’s empowering, exciting, and makes you feel like a total badass when you go up in weight and see strength gains with those major lifts.”
For the upper body, the trainer praised Underwood’s dominance as a pull-up “boss” and shared that she does barbell biceps curls, alternating hammer curls, barbell push presses, and dumbbell shoulder presses.
To achieve her toned legs, the singer tends to opt for “back squats, single-leg deadlifts, and hamstring rollouts.”
For abs, Carrie turns to “hanging leg raises and ab wheel rollouts” for a defined and strong core.
Last but not least, the trainer emphasized a key component of any health regimen — the diet.
Eve explained that the singer is intentional about pairing her workouts with a healthy diet that works for her.
“She is primarily plant-based but includes eggs, from her own chickens, and occasional dairy, though she does omit dairy products on show days,” Eve said.
“She strives to eat whole, natural foods. Carrie loves to garden, and her favorites are all the things she grows herself and prepares from scratch.”
Clearly, the Grammy winner is a fitness powerhouse but the trainer stressed the importance of celebrating wins — both big and small.
“Your confidence soars when you accomplish any fitness goal, large or small. It is that positive feedback that keeps the momentum going,” Eve said.
