After welcoming her first child in 2020, Max didn’t waste much time before she started working out again. “I started working out as soon as my midwife allowed me to, which was somewhere between two to four weeks,” the actress told Preview.
Max does lots of different workouts. When she started working out again she did pilates for one hour, three times a week. But before long she was doing them every day. “I’m so happy to be lifting weights again, doing circuit training and cycling,” she added to Preview. “I started cycling 20-45 minutes a day. I’d alternate between cycling and pilates.” Now her workout is circuit training and weight-lifting for 45 minutes five times a week and pilates for one hour, two times a week.
Max often doubles up on workouts. “Some days I’ll do two workouts and some days I just won’t work out! Listen to your body, be mindful of when you can push harder and when you need rest,” she told Preview.
Max revealed her food diary to Preview. For breakfast she will eat whole wheat toast, eggs, and black coffee. For lunch, “some kind of protein like chicken or bangus and brown rice. Sometimes canned tuna or salmon cooked in olive oil and garlic,” she continued. For dinner, she likes to eat salad. “I also try to lower my processed food intake and stop eating after 7 p.m.,” she continued. “I’ll have something sweet at some point in the day when I crave sweets. Usually I eat a piece of dark chocolate, or vegan ice cream on special days. If you want to drink alcohol once in a while, prosecco is low in sugar, so that’s what I drink!”
Instead of looking on the process of getting into shape as a chore, she looks at it as fun. “I wasn’t as focused on the end result as I was the on the journey. I enjoyed the process because I honestly felt strongest after giving birth, so getting fit was a piece of cake after that.”
Max also looks at health and wellness as self-care. “For me, it’s really all about taking care of myself mentally, physically and emotionally. All of that is important,” she told Philstar. “That includes working out every day, taking my supplements and meditating. Because I do all those things regularly, I think, the glow comes out more often.”
