To maintain her physique, Hudgens frequently finds herself in the gym more than once a day.

"When I'm not filming, I normally do a cross of Pilates, SoulCycle and yoga," she told Parade in a 2019 interview. "And some days when I have the time, I love doing Pilates first and then going over to SoulCycle. I love a double up! I always feel so accomplished when I double up."

She does lengthening routines to keep her muscles lean.

Hudgens admitted to Parade that she typically builds muscle quickly, so she's careful about the type of exercises she engages in, and the frequency with which she tackles them.

"I find the way that I achieve the body that I want for myself is to lengthen, to lean and to tone. And I get that all with yoga, Pilates, and Soul. I love Modo Yoga. I love a heated yoga class. I love to sweat," she explained.

To make the most of her workouts, Hudgens opts to exercise in a fasted state.

"I work out on an empty stomach usually," she told Parade. "I kind of to go between intermittent fasting and Keto and so it's normally just black coffee and a lot of water first thing in the AM," she said, revealing that she typically sticks to an 18-hour fast, then a 6-hour eating period, during which she adheres to a pescatarian diet.
