Shayk has a stunning figure, there’s no denying that, but she has to work hard to keep it. She recognizes that she has good genes, but believes in pushing yourself by going to the gym. She usually works out five times a week, avoiding exercises that lead to an overly muscular body; some of her favorite workouts include Pilates, boxing, and cardio exercises such as cycling and jogging.

Shayk also doesn’t believe in dieting. Most of the time, she eats healthy, but she also doesn’t want to deprive herself of her cravings. Some these guilty pleasures include hamburgers, pizza, and chicken nuggets. She says she has cheat days twice a week. Other times Shayk drinks water, fresh green juices, and green tea throughout the day, and she stays away from caffeine. Whole fruits, vegetables, and soups also are part of her healthy diet.

Cooper worked with celebrity trainer Jason Walsh to get him into shape for American Sniper, and he needed to gain 40 pounds of muscle for that role. He did so by eating 6,000 calories per day. He ate high-calorie healthy choices such as coconut, flaxseed, almond, honey, avocado, walnuts, and chia seeds, and got protein from foods such as chicken, meat, turkey, and eggs. He even ate burgers and pizza to maintain his caloric goals when he needed to.

If he doesn’t need to gain weight for a role, Cooper stick with other healthy choices such as green vegetable juices, smoothies, and soups instead of processed foods. He also consumes water and green tea instead of alcohol, coffee, and black tea.

What about Cooper’s workout? His favorite exercise is something called a 3-2-1 workout. It’s a total-body workout that consists of three parts done in combination: cardio, strength training, and core exercises. That is, you do three segments of cardio, two segments of strength training, and one segment for your core. It can be done in 30 minutes.
