Celeb Fitness: Keep It Tight Like Khloe Kardashian
Khloe has found her place in the Kardashian family as ‘ultra-fit’, and has been dedicated to her wellness journey for years. The curvy blond has a healthy approach to fitness and believes that wellness should be for life.
Remember Portion Control. The star finds that she doesn’t have to cut out her favourite foods if she focuses on eating the correct portion sizes.
Switch It Up. Khloé believes that variety is a huge motivator when it comes to fitness, and switches up her workouts as often as possible. Spinning, hot yoga, circuit training and obstacle-course challenges keep the star interested.
Keep It Compound. The fitness fundi prefers full body movements, and includes compound exercises (using more than one muscle group) into her strength workouts.
Know Your Numbers. Khloé loves activity trackers as a motivating force to keep on top of how much she moves in a day.
INCLUDE these three compound moves into your strength routine.
Kneeling Side Crunch
START on the ground, leaning on one knee and hand. Extend the top arm and leg out in opposite directions to form a straight line. Keeping your balance, draw your knee and elbow into a side crunch. Pause for a moment then extend back out to your starting position. Aim for three sets of 10 – 16 reps on each side.
Lunge With Twist
STAND with your left leg far in front of the other and a weight held at chest height. Sink down until knees are bent to 90 degrees, then swivel your torso to the right. Pause for a moment then rise back up to your starting position. Aim for three sets of 10 – 16 reps on each side.
Plié Squat With Reverse Raise
STAND with feet wide apart, toes turned out and weights held in both hands at thigh height. Sink into a plié squat and hold the position. Draw your arms up to shoulder height, palms up, in a straight line. Pause for a moment then lower back down to your starting position. Aim for three sets of 10 – 16 reps.
