It looks like Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich are having the time of their lives on their tropical honeymoon. The newlyweds jetted off to Fregate Island in Seychelles, a country in the Indian Ocean off East Africa, after tying the knot earlier this month — and their Instagram photos are straight up honeymoon goals.
34-year-old Laich shared a series of fitspo-worthy Instagram shots Friday morning starring his new bride. In one photo, he uses (newly) 29-year-old Hough as a human barbell while he squats, and in another she can be seen posing on his back while he does pushups in the sand.
As if it weren't already obvious enough that the Dancing With the Stars judge and NHL star love to work out, Laich captioned his post with his passion for fitness.
"Fitness should never be a chore, if it is you are doing it wrong," he wrote. "Working out should be fun and something that invigorates and inspires you to become your best self! It should be something you look forward to as a part of your day......even on your honeymoon!" The newly-wedded athlete ended his post with the hashtag #barbellJules.
As a professional dancer, Hough is never short on cardio and cites dancing as one of her favorite workouts; however, she's also a fan of switching up her fitness routine from time to time.
"I usually try [to work out] five times a week...I love to start my day off with a workout," Hough told Elle. "It doesn't have to be high-exertion, two hours, let's go. But anything that gets me up and going. Sometimes it's an hour and a half, sometimes it's an hour, sometimes it's 45 minutes, just depends how I'm feeling on that day." She says that she varies her workouts because she gets bored with them pretty easily (who doesn't?). Think: yoga, spinning, hiking, personal trainer sessions, and lots of cardio, like dance classes, classes at studios like Body By Simone and Tracy Anderson, etc.
Looking for a couple ab-specific moves to copy Hough's sculpted six-pack? Try bicycle crunches and standing crunches.
"Dancing is so great because there are all the little details, and the little movements, and the little muscles that are working without you even realizing," Hough told Entertainment Tonight. "You can also do your basic crunches. I love a little bicycle. Standing abs are pretty cool, too!"
As for the newlywed's diet, she credits carbs for her crazy sexy body — in fact, she says she eats them at "every single meal". (Check out what a day of healthy eating looks like for her.)
"Everybody is so afraid of carbs — they talk about them in a negative way, like, 'Carbs make me fat or bloated' — but just pick the right one and have a little bit," she told Us Weekly.
"They make my brain click on and everything else is able to function," she said. "I thought they were my enemy, but they’re actually my best friend."
Her go-to meal? Chicken, veggies and sweet potatoes. No word yet on if the happy honeymooner will splurge on her diet during her tropical trip, but she's known to indulge in pizza, pasta and wine on cheat days.
We don't know about you, but we can't wait for the couples' workout posts that are sure to come.
