Andrea Metcaf: That’s a great idea because it’s really utilizing your surroundings. Now what if you're stuck indoors? Got any ideas of what we can do? Jackie Warner: Well of course, you can get my DVD, that’s one. But you know always getting a DVD and you can use even a phonebook or your table top and put your feet up on the couch and do pushups that way to work your shoulders and your chest and your back.

Tell us a little bit about your personal diet and how you use that in your training? Jackie Warner: Well my personal diet is extreme Monday through Friday and then I allow myself just like with my clients to cheat meals on the weekends. And I don’t go too crazy. I keep it with 1500 calories or under on those cheat meals. But I eat very clean, I don’t eat refined sugar. I never eat over five grams of sugar during the workweek. So never, that’s hard to do. But, you know it shows like I have a lot of energy. I work out. I have a lot of musculature and I never get sick. So that sugar intake low. That is really the key. Andrea Metcaf: We talked a little bit about ab training and you to0ld me you really don’t do a lot of sit ups. Jackie Warner: I don’t do crunches. I really don’t. I do other things like a pushup. It’s a fantastic core workout, right? I mean its’ so good. And now, do a push up, hold on to some weights, do a push up. Boom! And then a renegade, so you bring the weight up into a row. That is oblique work like crazy. So you're going to really feel that. Andrea Metcaf: Well even if you can’t lift the weight, just lifting that and a few inches off the ground. Jackie Warner: Exactly! Andrea Metcaf: You know those are some great moves Jackie. What else do you have coming up? Jackie Warner: I have a lot of things coming up. I'm shooting my new show for Bravo.
