Jennifer Garner may be mostly associated with romantic comedies, but back in the day (we’re talking 20-odd years ago) she played the lead in a series called Alias. On the show, Jen played a butt-kicking CIA agent and performed all of her own stunts.

Two decades and 3 kids later, the Yes Day star is still keeping fit, as she has demonstrated on Instagram. 

Jennifer’s latest video on the ‘gram shows her performing a plyometric workout. The jumping exercises are excellent for improving muscle strength and the actress seems be an expert. 

In a display of pure cardio, the 50-year-old performs double box jumps, pop squats onto a box, sideways jumps over a Bosu ball, and box jump squat thrusts. Whew!

“If your kids call your workout Jazzercise and it nearly kills you to complete it, do you have the right to video yourself and put it out there to haunt them when they are fifty?” Jen inquired in the clip’s caption. 

Fellow celebs declared their admiration in the comments. 

“This is so badass and I’m here for it,” wrote The Office actressJenna Fischer.

Former Grey’s Anatomy star, Jessica Capshaw, commented, “Watching how incredible you are and look doing that makes me simultaneously proud of you and deeply worried about me.”
