I just tried Lily James’ 600-rep ab workout — here’s what happened

As a fitness editor, there’s nothing I love more than discovering a celeb’s workout secrets, especially when it comes to transformations for a role. I’ve already written about the home workouts Lily James used for her Pam and Tommy transformation, but recently, I’ve seen TikTok explode with another one of James’ workouts — and it involves doing 600 crunches. 

In an interview with Cosmopolitan UK (opens in new tab), James said, “We trained five times a week; running, circuits, weights, working out in the gym, and on the track. It was an insane time. When I first had to lift weights, do squats and run for ten minutes I was knackered and wanted to be sick.” However, she also said, “I got really obsessed with sit-ups! Whenever the Director shouted ‘cut!’ I was there on the floor pounding them out. We had to do like 600 different types of sit-ups a day so my stomach changed the most, you just end up looking healthier and stronger”, which seems to be where  TikTok has gotten this challenge from.
