How Janet Jackson lost 70 pounds with no cardio https://t.co/tobDj613P0— Wonderwall (@Wonderwall) November 21, 2017
After her son was born and embarking on a tour that has yet to be cancelled, Janet lost a total of 70 pounds.
Janet's trainer Paulette Sybliss says "I started training her about six weeks after she had Eissa so about March we started. We had a very vigorous training schedule," she said. "We were training a minimum of four times a week and the sessions were never less than 45 minutes, no more than an hour. Very intense, though. Very intense training."
Janet's initial desire was to simply lose weight but Paullette wanted to focus on building lean muscle.
"She thought she'd have to lose more and I knew she wouldn't. You can see how she looks. I mean her waist is tiny. She looks incredible and she's so fit, but she's also healthy," Paulette explained. "She looks incredibly healthy. She actually looks smaller in person than the pictures. If you see her and think she looks small, you stand next to her and she's even smaller."
"We were doing three or four exercises with weights back to back," Paulette said. "What that does—you would look at her and think she'd done like an hour of cardio with me—but when you're working with weights and you're working the muscle that way, it elevates the heart rate, but also it's creating that fat burning affect both during the session and also when she left me, and that was key."
