Full body workouts, home workouts and workouts based on specific body parts are all something that she has personally undergone to achieve the stunning transformation that she has had.

Here, let’s discuss her famous and surprisingly simple 7-minute workout routine, which is extremely effective for a total body workout!
This workout routine tones the core, arms and glutes, and relies on bodyweight only. Here is a breakdown of Natalie’s 7-minute workout routine!
First off, start with doing the glute bridge, staying in the position for 30 secs. Do around 8-10 reps of the same.
Next, go for the “Dip and kick” on each side for around 30 seconds each.
The Reverse bridge walk comes in next, followed by plank, alternating between the sides.
Next, complete ten hamstring curls for each side, and then proceed with four plank walks on each side.
Now, it’s time for the pike position walk, which you must repeat two times.
This workout is so simple and yet, it manages to work the entire body so well. It is just perfect for all those who need to workout under time constraints!
Natalie Jill Diet Plan
No fitness program is truly complete without a well chalked out diet plan in place. Natalie too believes that nutrition and diet play a very crucial role, due to the simple reason that one eats more calories a day than what is burned by workouts. She focuses on eating healthy and her all her food is gluten-free.
Natalie believes that diets supplementing weight loss or other workouts, should not be restrictive or be directed towards self-starving.
As per her, an ideal diet plan should consist of around 6 small meals in a day at an interval of 2-3 hours.
Her diet is based on calories and the inclusion of nutrients and healthy fats, proteins etc. The meals generally consist of natural, fresh and healthy foods, including fresh vegetables, nuts like almonds, proteins etc.
Natalie is truly a woman with resilience and sets such a wonderful model for all.
Despite all that she has gone through, she still manages to inspire thousands of people through her work and is advocating the message of fitness and health all across. Surely, if she can do it, so can you! All it takes is determination and willpower!
