“I do resistance training three times a week. That really helps with defying gravity and keeping things in place,” the actress told Parade magazine in January. “I have light weights to do reps with both my arms and legs. I do cardio a couple times a week on the treadmill, with the music blasting. It’s what gets me through.”
Locklear admitted that she is very dedicated to her workouts, and tries to keep with her schedule to stay in shape.
"If I miss my workouts for a few weeks, it's harder when I go back," the Scary Movie 5 actress said. "Keeping up with the healthy lifestyle makes it easier in the long run." She credited exercise, "especially cardio," with helping her maintain a positive attitude. "I also love to play golf and tennis," the TV star said. "Even a walk in the evening can take the edge off a bad day."
Regarding her daily diet, Locklear revealed, "I use portion control and try to keep it healthy 80 percent of the time. I don't deny myself carbs or sweets. I just make every effort to keep it within reason." Even so, the actress said she's prone to patronizing local drive-thru restaurants. "Sometimes when I'm tired after a long day's work it seems like the easy thing to do, but the next day I regret it," Locklear admitted.
Locklear told Parade that she keeps a positive mental attitude, and knows that good genes help play a role in helping keep her fit and younger looking.
