Jennifer Garner Workout, Courtesy of Her Trainer

Garner's workouts get "pretty advanced" and incorporate dance, plyometric exercises, and strength training, according to her trainer.

Did you catch Jennifer Garner's recent appearance on her trainer Beth Nicely's social media? The post highlighted their captivating footwork routine. In the video, Garner and Nicely flawlessly execute jumps on and off a box platform, all perfectly timed to "Stronger" by Sam Feldt. After completing the seamless sequence, Nicely exclaims, "That was so fast!"

The impressive synchronization and energy displayed by the duo might make it seem simple, if not for Nicely's astounded reaction. It's indeed a remarkable showcase of agility and coordination, underlining Garner's commendable fitness abilities - an fact that definitely does not escape her trainer's notice.

According to her personal trainer, Beth Nicely, Jennifer Garner is extremely strong and has a great passion for working out. Her love for dance and hard work are the perfect combination for intensive exercise sessions. Despite referring to Nicely's workouts as "death by Beth", Garner appears to truly enjoy keeping fit.

Nicely, a Broadway performer, marathoner, NASM-certified trainer, and certified pre/postnatal and corrective exercise specialist, utilizes a variety of exercise styles in their training sessions. These often include a comprehensive warm-up, cardio dances, plyometric box series, and strength training with weights.

Their workouts can be demanding and creative, sometimes incorporating advanced exercises that may seem daunting to some. One of these challenging routines is 'The Circuit', which includes eight box jumps, 40 jumps with a jump rope, and 16 leaps over a mini-trampoline while holding a 10-pound medicine ball — repeated five times. This is usually completed within three minutes, a feat Garner has achieved multiple times.

For those unable to access Nicely's private training or Garner's athletic abilities, Nicely's digital fitness platform, The Limit, offers online classes and occasional in-person training in New York. Based on Nicely's experiences as a dancer and long-distance runner, these classes aim at pushing participants to their personal physical boundaries. They include HIIT, heavy weight strength training, light weight muscular endurance exercises, and dance. Garner herself has taken these virtual classes during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Three variations of 'The Circuit' that Garner has completed can be found on Nicely's platform. However, just a heads up, due to Garner's dance background, these advanced exercises might appear simpler than they actually are!

Jennifer Garner Circuit Workout

How it works: Begin with a dynamic warm-up and two songs of dance cardio, then complete one (or more!) of the circuits below.

You'll need: An 18-inch plyo box, a Pilates box, a set of 15-pound dumbbells, a jump rope, and a mini-trampoline.

1. Box Agility Circuit

Box Jump

A. Stand with feet on either side of a plyo box, with toes parallel and knees in line with second and third toes. Jump feet toward each other, landing on box.

B. Jump feet back out onto the ground to return to start.

Do 10 reps.

Single-Leg Jump

A. Stand with feet on either side of a plyo box, with toes parallel and knees in line with second and third toes. Jump, landing with left foot on the box while lifting right knee.

B. Jump out, landing with both feet on the ground on either side of the box to return to start.

Switch sides; repeat. Do 10 reps total, alternating sides.

Oblique Twist Jump

A. Stand with feet on either side of a plyo box, with toes parallel and knees in line with second and third toes. Keeping obliques engaged and torso facing forward, jump onto the box, landing with left foot in front of right foot as if riding a surfboard.

B. Untwist and jump out, landing with both feet on the ground on either side of the box to return to start.

Switch sides; repeat. Do 10 reps total, alternating sides.

Box Jump Burpee

Start by positioning yourself in front of a plyometric box. Leap forward onto the box and then promptly hop off again.

Instantly put your hands on the box and kick your feet back to take a plank position. Ensure your toes are pointed straight ahead, with your knees aligned with your second and third toes, your shoulders directly above your wrists, and your core activated.

Spring your feet toward the box and rise to a standing position to return to the beginning posture. Complete this sequence 10 times. Repeat the entire routine for a total of 4 rounds.

2. Loaded Circuit

Squat to Overhead Press

Start in a standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes facing forward. In each hand, hold a 15-pound dumbbell at your armpits, with your palms facing inward in the hammer curl stance.

Engage your core and back as you lower into a squat. This is achieved by sitting back on your heels while pushing your hips backward. Ensure that your chest remains elevated and your knees bend in line with your second and third toes.

As you exhale, use force from your abdomen to engage your deep core muscles. Return to a standing position while simultaneously lifting the weights above your head. Make sure to keep your arms in alignment with your ears.

Bring the weights back to the initial hammer curl position as you go down into the next squat. This exercise should be carried out for a total of 12 repetitions.

Triceps Row to Box Jump

Position yourself behind a Pilates box with a pair of 15-pound dumbbells. Your knees should be flexed and body angled to align with your shins. Extend your arms in front of you, holding the dumbbells.

Engage your triceps by drawing your elbows back in a powerful one-count contraction. Then, slowly stretch your arms forward in a 3-count eccentric movement until they return to the initial pose.

Follow this action with a swift jump onto the box and then hop off it. Maintain a strong core posture for stability throughout the exercise. Continue this routine for a total of 12 reps.

18-Inch Plyo Box Jump

A. Start in a squat position facing an 18-inch plyo box. Swing arms for momentum and jump up onto the box, landing with toes parallel, and knees in line with second and third toes.

B. Either step or jump down from the box, landing softly to return to the starting position.

Do 20 reps.

Repeat the entire circuit for a total of 3 rounds.

3. Speed Circuit

Box Jump

A. Stand with feet on either side of a plyo box, with toes parallel and knees in line with second and third toes. Jump feet toward each other, landing on box.

B. Jump feet back out onto the ground to return to start.

C. Jump feet back out onto the ground to return to start.

Do 8 reps.

Jump Rope

A. Stand with a jump rope resting behind feet, holding a handle with each hand, elbows bent.

B. Keeping chest lifted, make one full rotation with the rope, swinging it above head and beneath feet, jumping as the rope sweeps the ground.

Do 40 jumps.

Trampoline Leap-Over

Start by positioning your left foot on a small trampoline, with your right foot touching the ground next to the trampoline. Your right knee should be in a side lunge posture.

While maintaining an upright upper back, with your chest elevated and core locked in, use your right foot to push off the ground and land onto the trampoline, simultaneously moving your left foot to the floor on the other side of the trampoline in a side lunge position.

Persist in alternating between these two positions, executing a leap from one side to the other for a total of 16 reps. Strive to accomplish 5 complete rounds within 3 minutes.
