Other times, she could eat egg-white scramble, Ezekiel toast and berries.4 On mornings when she works out, she’ll also have an orange or a grapefruit and black coffee for a little caffeine boost.

When it comes to her personal fitness, Carrie Underwood describes herself as a seasonal workout person. In winter, when the weather is cold and there are a lot of holidays, she lifts more weights and does less cardio. This allows her to make use of all the extra holiday food calories to build some muscle. In summer, she runs and does more outdoor cardio exercises. This way, she feels lighter and she can make use of the warm weather to get lean.

She enjoys working out by putting things together – using a chair for dips, working with her bodyweight by doing push-ups and sit-ups. This allows her to be fit anywhere, whether she’s travelling or in a hotel room.

She also likes to travel with a few items for her fitness routine such as an ab wheel, resistance bands and jump ropes. They are lightweight and easy to pack and take anywhere with you and can easily become part of a workout.

Overall, Carrie Underwood prefers to focus her energy on building strength. She favors lower impact exercises over cardio. She doesn’t have a strict workout schedule, exercising whenever she can by incorporating fitness into her normal daily activities. For her pre-event work out, she does more cardio and fewer weights than usual. This is so she does not look too muscular on the red carpet.
