Okay, and a whole ton more than that, I know.
It feels like Amy Adams has been in everything, and is also our Lois Lane…so how is she just getting to Superhero Jacked?
I know, you’re sitting there like “I don’t know Mike, you tell us…”
Well, I don’t have a good answer for you. She’s been in Enchanted, American Hustle, The Arrival, The Office, Justice League, Batman V Superman, Man of Steel, and so much more.
But, here she is!
Amy Adams Stats:
Weight: 128 lbs.
Age: 43 years old
Amy Adams just about falls in our average range for women at SHJ, which is right around the 5’4-5’6 mark.
Sometimes I won’t include the 5’4 because we don’t see many women at that height, but it is right around the range.
Either way, though, these workouts can be used for anyone and everyone.

Amy Adams Diet and Nutrition
There’s a decent amount of information out there about Amy Adam’s workout, and what she does to stay in tip top shape, but much less about her diet and nutrition.
You might be wondering why.
And, that’s good because I have the answer (or at least part of it).
In an interview with Allure Magazine Adams states:
“Some of these actresses or public personas who are very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. I just don’t see the point. Do you know, the people I love as actresses, I’ve never, ever sought out pictures of them to see what they look like in a swimsuit.”
We’ve seen this from a lot of the actresses we’ve had at SHJ, actually.
Living more of a sustainable life, and just being “healthy” is generally an approach we find.
Sustainability is key.
It’s the backbone behind our Academy and Nutrition Classes within (Spartans, Vikings, Monks, SuperHumans, Samurais, Hunter Gatherers, Minimalists).
Finding that sustainability could take a while, but it’s something you’ll have to experiment with.
Check out our Nutrition Pillars and play around with what type of “healthy” diet options work for you.
And then we built The SHJ Legacy Program to help you achieve it!

Amy Adams Workout Routine Research
As far as Amy Adams’ workout routine: I was able to find a decent amount of information.
I think you guys are going to like it.
Well, I hope so, at least.
In Vogue Magazine she talks about how her past training as a ballet dancer has shaped her training now:
You trained as a ballet dancer growing up. How has that shaped your approach to exercise, posture?
I wish I still had my dancer’s posture—I have to remind myself! I have actually been strength training, using light weights. I work out once a week just to maintain my muscle mass; that’s important as the years go by, as a woman. But I really like running. I try to walk or run a mile a day, if I can.
So: one day of weight training with light weights and about a mile a day in running or walking.
Aside from running and light weights, Adams has also used a program called “The S Factor”.
Shape Magazine tells us all about it and even shares some which I will utilize in the full program later.
“Some mom friends said it’s a good way to lose the baby weight,” Adams told Marie Claire. “And I’ll do anything to get off that treadmill!”
S Factor is actually pole dancing meets fitness, but the creator Sheila Kelley shares some moves for us to utilize with Shape.

Amy Adams Workout Routine
1-7 days per week
I’m going to be programming you one day of weight lifting which will cover your whole body. I will also be sharing some movements from S-Factor, and the rest is going to be cardio/running which Adams says she tries to do every single day!
Want To Upgrade This Workout?
The Superhero Academy now comes with an Upgrade Your Workout Tool that allows Academy members to turn any SHJ workout into a 4-8 week fully planned regime detailing exact weights to lift and including reverse & tradition pyramid training, straight sets, super sets, progressive overload and more.
Cardio and Walking (6-7 Days Per Week)
Adams states that she tries to get at least a mile of walking or running in every day.
In other interviews she mentions how much she loves running, so don’t just walk every day – get in some heart pumping jog sessions too!
Do this as often as possible, and remember a brisk walk everyday makes a world of difference.
Full Body Weights Workout
Step Up Bicep Curls
S-Factor Workout from Shape.com
You will need: Yoga mat
Reps: 10 (5 in each direction)
Lie faceup on a mat with knees bent and feet flat about hip-width apart. Rest arms out to the sides. Take a long, deep inhale as you lift hips so body forms a straight line from shoulders to knees. Exhale and squeeze butt simultaneously. Move hips in a circular motion in a clockwise direction, like you’re scraping the inside of a tube with your hips, pushing out and down to the bottom until butt is centimeters away from touching the mat, then back up. Relax butt and take another long, deep inhale. Squeeze your butt again, exhale gradually, and pump hips up and down a couple inches 5 times. That’s one rep. Repeat, moving hips counterclockwise.
Writhing to Prancing Goddess
Reps: 90 seconds
1. Lie faceup on a mat, legs together, feet and toes pointed, and arms out to the sides. Arch back, lifting chest up toward the ceiling, keeping head on the mat. Lift legs slightly off the ground. Bend knees at slightly different angles so right knee is a bit higher than left. Slowly switch knees so left is higher than right. Continue switching (writhing), toes and feet pointed, for 45 seconds.
2. With right knee higher than left, lift right leg until right thigh is perpendicular to the floor. Take a long, deep inhale and nearly straighten leg toward the ceiling. (Leave a sexy, subtle curve in it.) Exhale, and slowly lower right leg as you lift and straighten left leg while bending right knee. Move continuously with tummy tucked, going slowly to create resistance as if you’re riding a bicycle on a sandy beach. Repeat for 45 seconds.
Standing Hip Circles
Reps: 10 in each direction standing; 5 in each direction squatting
Stand with feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, knees slightly bent. Make a wide, slow circle with hips moving clockwise 10 times. Repeat moving hips counterclockwise. Circle again clockwise, speeding up as you squat all the way down, bending knees slowly. Once at the bottom, slowly begin to straighten legs back to starting position with knees slightly bent, continuing to circle hips. Do 5 reps, then repeat 5 times moving hips counterclockwise.
