Jessica Biel’s glute workout will leave you hobbling for days


It’s no easy feat juggling the life of an actress, model, singer, producer, mother, and wife to the world’s dearly beloved JT. But just when we thought there was simply nothing else Jessica Biel couldn’t ace, we can officially add ‘Squat Queen’ to the list.

Yas girls, she is THE Queen of Squats. How do we know this? The 36-year-old posted a video on Instagram of her in some workout clothes, holding two heavy weights, all while just casually doing a series of pistol squats.

“Hey, Emmy, my butt is coming for you. (Assuming I can walk after these pistol squats,” she captioned the post.

While Biel makes it look easy AF, turn up the volume and you’ll be glad to hear she’s actually grunting. (although, we don’t see any tears)

Her trainer, Ben Bruno, also shared the impressive video on his profile, and described her execution of single leg squats as “seriously impressive.”

But TBH, if you want to perfect the art of pistol squats, it’s gonna require a lot more than tough glutes; you’ll also need a strong AF core.

While we have you testing out whether you can actually do one (half?) pistol squat, you can also go ahead and take some diet advice from the actress.

In a recent interview with the LA Times, she credits cutting wheat and dairy from her diet for boosting her wellbeing.

“I don’t have gluten or wheat or dairy. My digestion is better, I feel better, I have more energy,” she said.

But don’t think she deprives herself from glorious food – her day on a plate looks like a menu taken straight from your favourite café.

Her family starts off the day with Paleo pancakes “with some cashew or almond butter on top with some local honey”, chicken-apple sausages and fresh juice.

Lunch is a quick salad (from the family’s own garden) with quinoa or vegie burgers. “And then dinner, if we’re home, it would be cooking up some salmon, some rice, grilling some vegetables, or going out and having some chicken, something a little heartier.”

Snacks include gluten-free pretzels with an almond cheese dip (“It almost tastes like cream cheese, but no dairy”).

Now, if you’re still reading this and STILL struggling to do that pistol squat, grab your work-bestie and try it out together. We know we’ve tried… and failed.

2. Hold your partner’s right hand in fireman’s grip

3. Raise your right foot off the floor slightly with leg straight, so the outside of your right ankle faces your partners
