tim mcgrawAnd we thought Zumba was tough! In the recent issue of People magazine, an interview with the super cute Tim McGraw says that he works out with a martial arts expert for 90-minute sessions — not once, not twice, but THREE times a day! He also does push-ups, squats, swimming and running and he sticks to a no-sugar, no-wheat, high-protein diet. His trainer says that he has to “reign Tim in” because Tim is likely to keep asking for more work-outs. The abdomen resulting from all that exercise can be seen in a shirtless shot of Tim in the magazine. Enjoy.
