Jamie Foxx has a simple fitness goal: “I just want to get my tight on. If someone grabs your arm in a club, you want to let ’em know you’re sturdy.” He calls his current regimen his “grown-up” workout. “I’m 39 now, and my shoulders started hurting from benching really heavy weights [350],” he says.

“So I look at the surfers. They have serious cores. How can I slim down and lean out?” He switched from big weights to a morning program of pushups, situps, and crunches–four sets of 25 of each.

He breaks up this workout by doing chores between sets: “Do 25 pushups, brush your teeth. Do the next 25 pushups, take a shower. Do another set of whatever it is, then fix your hair. Now the workout’s part of your morning routine, just like brushing your teeth. So get up in the morning and challenge yourself. Twenty minutes, you’re done.”

The Jamie Foxx workout: push ups, crunches and sit ups. Jamie says, ” If you need to do some cardio, go running for 20 minutes. There. You’re done and you haven’t spent a dime.”

What he did to prepare: “I really had to bulk up. I got up to about 200 pounds, then lost 25 pounds once I went down to training camp because of all the workouts, and water lost. It made me look bigger on the screen because I was tighter.”
