Keri Russell Workout



The workout we have come up with today to post is the Keri Russell Workout! This one is inspired by the physique that Keri Russell has built and maintained during her career. Don’t forget that nutrition plays an important role when striving to achieve various fitness and strength goals!

Research process for celebrities/characters/etc:

When we are researching workouts for different anime characters, celebrities, cartoon characters, athletes, politicians, etc… We go through a fairly large deep dive into the data we can find available through books, movies, comic books, interviews, articles that have been written, and we often even reach out to contact the individuals to gather data if at all possible. Then using our education and knowledge we formulate workout information based on what the research and outreach information obtained.

In Russell’s everyday life she opts for a few things that make her more active.

She also talks about not overindulging on foods, and earning your calories.
