During her famed True Blood television series, Anna Paquin is known for undergoing a strenuous diet and exercise regime to help tone that figure. Given her metabolism, age and several other factors, such as body’s reaction to certain diet; it was not easy to maintain that adorable physique.
For instance, if you followed all of the True Blood series, you can easily notice that Season 1 showcased a rather healthy looking Anna Paquin, which later on changed down the road. During her nude scenes from several other episodes of different seasons, her abdominal walls and musculature revealed a sexy, but toned hour glass figure.
Moreover, you can see various changes that other celebrities in that TV series went through. Ryan Kwanten went from bulky to skinny during the premier of shows 6th season, whereas his fellow male co-stars gained some serious muscle mass without sacrificing too much on shredded looks. So how did they all do this? In this article, I am going to take a look at Anna Paquin workout routine, which you can improvise to adapt to your requirement.
To my surprise, Anna doesn’t like to do it old school style; she simply goes for a full body workout to burn all the excess fat. Paquin has been under the direct supervision of Clay Burwell, her fitness guru, for a long time. Burwell already holds a reputation for putting his “students” through extreme cardio and weight training sessions.
