Hot mama Courteney Cox, 46, flaunts her figure frequently on her primetime comedy "Cougar Town." But how does she stay in such great shape? Trainer Michele Lovitt, whose clients include Julianne Moore, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and P. Diddy, shared with Self magazine one of the workouts she does with Cox to help her keep that bikini body. Check it out.
"Squats are one of the best exercises you can do for your hips, butt and thighs!" says Lovitt.
Stand with feet hip-width apart and, for added intensity, hold weights at shoulder level or at your sides. Bend the knees, and lower into a squat, keeping the knees behind the toes. Imagine that you're sticking your butt out behind you, but keep the torso upright and contracted. Press into the heels to stand up. Repeat for 2-3 sets of 12-16 reps.
