Kim Kardashian West is back at it again with an intense workout regime. The 36-year-old star has one of the most photographed bottoms in Hollywood and she won’t let the crown slip off her head so easily.
According to her Snapchat stories this Saturday, she is putting in a lot of effort to get back in shape. In a series of videos, the mother of two introduced her followers to a few exercises she does regularly.
“Today is major leg day,” the star explains, while wearing an all-black workout ensemble and letting her new platinum hair lay loose.
First up were hex dead-lift squats using a cap barbell weight bar (or trap bar).
Next, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star launched into a cycle of weighted power sled pulls, Romanian dead-lifts, and seated leg presses.
She ended her workout with glute kickbacks on a weighted leg curl machine.
Kim is the mother to 21-month-old son Saint and daughter North, who turned 4 in June, and is currently expecting her third child through a surrogate.
She has never been a fitness freak until her trip to Mexico, where some unflattering paparazzi photos of her got to her nerves. It was then that Kim K decided to pursue gym life.
“I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were photo-shopping them and sharpening them,” Kardashian West explained on The View in June.
The offensive editing and the media backlash that came along with it was something that failed to amuse the multi-faceted mogul.
She explained: “I mean I definitely was not in my best shape. I hadn’t worked out in 12 weeks,” she said. “I had two surgeries on my uterus … and I was already not feeling like myself, and then when people were sharpening them and making them look way worse and then those were going around, I was like, ‘Okay. I’m going to get it together.’ ”
Taking up the challenge, Kim linked up with a bodybuilder she met on social media to formulate a better regime.
Describing the new regimen, Kardashian West said, “I definitely think that you have to do the work. I get up every morning between 5:30 and 6 and workout before my kids get up. I’ve been working out for an hour and a half [each day].”
She soon realized gym wasn’t the only thing she needed. She started eating healthier and totally changed her diet after the realization. It was her workout buddy who helped her with it.
Kim Kardashian West said: “I was eating less thinking like, ‘Okay. I’m just not going to eat this,’ ” she explained of her old dieting habits. “But I was eating absolutely no carbs or trying to and that’s really hard for me.”
Her new workout buddy, however, helped her solve this problem. “She’s really helped me with my meal plan to definitely add healthy carbs, vegetables. I was just not eating properly.”
Though, Kim Kardashian isn’t the only one of the Kardashian-Jenner clan to be opening up about the matter. Sister, Khloé Kardashian revealed the secrets of her revenge booty in a ‘Khlo-Fit’ video on her app on Sept. 6 — turning the lens over to her trainer, Don Brooks and Pilates instructor Shannon Nadj for the demo.
Brooks walked app subscribers through his Matrix Method, which includes four quarters, with two exercises a quarter, each done for three sets.
The first exercise in the first quarter is a basic lunge, 20 times on each side. The series is then repeated on a Bosu ball, this time with only 10 reps on each side.
In the second set of the first quarter, Nadj jumps laterally into the squat position, repeating the move with 20 reps on each side. Again, the exercise is repeated on the Bosu ball.
Moving on to the second quarter, Nadj does dynamic squats for 20 reps, before repeating the exercise on the Bosu ball for an additional 20 reps.
The second set of the second quarter is jump switch lunges. Nadj jumps three times and lands in a lunge, repeating 20 times on each side. This move is also repeated on the Bosu ball for 20 reps.
Brooks’ complete workout with Kardashian is expected in a later clip.
