Khloe Kardashian’s firm booty and strong abs are the envy of many. On her show, Revenge Body, she encourages women to work towards getting the body they’ve always dreamed of. And there’s one routine in particular that people are keen to know about, given how amazing Khloe looks when showing off her perfectly-toned abdomen and glutes.
When it comes to losing weight and burning calories, most people spend lots of time and effort doing cardio, but according to the mom-of-one, the best way to get your ideal figure is through strength training: “It’s your ticket to a tight and toned body and a more efficient way to burn calories and lose body fat,” she told Shape.
Her trainer, Gunnar Peterson, who is also known for working with other celebrities like sister Kim, Jennifer Lopez , The Rock, and Kate Beckinsale, recommends starting with cardio, and then moving on to weight training. Luckily the entrepreneur has shared her favorite trainer-endorsed work-out sessions on social media for those wishing to emulate the KUWTK star.
How do you get buns of steel?
1. Pulsing Weighted Squat
To do this dynamic exercise you should start with a 10 to 12 pound dumbbell in each hand. Keeping your feet at hip-width apart, bend your knees and lower your butt toward the floor, placing your weight in your heels. Try to get your thighs as close to parallel to the floor as possible, and pulse twice before standing back up, squeezing your glutes again at the top. Do 10 repetitions.
2. Side lunges with 10-pound dumbbell
Do a side lunge routine of eight repetitions for each leg, immediately followed by eight skater jumps per leg.
How to get a flat tummy according to Khloé?
Khloé perhaps broke the record by getting a flat stomach just a few months after giving birth to her daughter True. Her favorite exercises for getting toned abs are those that involve the whole body, and balance is key. One of them is done on a Bosu Ball, where you have to keep your balance by flexing your core area or abdominal muscles.
How can you do it at home?
If you don’t have a Bosu ball at home, Gunnar Peterson recommends standing on top of a rolled-up rug or pair of towels to recreate the effect of the movement that the legs and abs need to work on body balance.
These two areas are important if you want to get a figure like the star, but you shouldn’t forget to work out the entire body. In fact, Khloé dedicates one day a week to exercises that work out the whole body at the same time, which doesn’t just help her lose weight, but also speeds up her metabolism. As with any new exercise routine, it’s worth taking professional advice and starting slowly, to avoid injury.
Finally, don’t forget that in order to get in great shape, aside from doing an intense workout, you also need to eat a balanced diet and drink plenty of water.
