It’s not an exaggeration that working out really helps to clear your mind, and that’s exactly what Emmy Rossum is doing to gear up for filming another season of Shameless. The 31-year-old actress shared how she’s preparing for season nine of the popular show, and it all starts with “getting in the proper headspace" six weeks before filming starts.
Emmy worked out with acclaimed trainer Michael Olajide Jr. at Aerospace High Performance Center in LA on April 4. Michael, who’s been described as a "lunatic in the best way" by a POPSUGAR editor who’s trained with him before, helps Victoria’s Secret angels prep for the runway, so you know his workouts are no joke. On Emmy’s Instagram and in her Stories, she shared a series of high-intensity workouts that "hurt so good," including boxing, jump roping, rope pulling, glute bridges with heel sliders, and ab bicycle variations. Just watching these has our legs feeling wobbly, and we’re mentally taking notes for our next trip to the gym.
Michael gave her a well-deserved congrats for crushing her entire workout and said, "Cheers to incredible human beings like this young lady!" Keep reading to get a glimpse at Emmy’s inspiring sweat session – it just might motivate you to get moving, too.
