How to Get a Sexy Body the Celebrity Way

How to Get a Sexy Body the Celebrity WayItís no secret that celebrities have an arsenal of help when it comes to maintaining their envious figures. But surprisingly, you donít need a great personal trainer or special chef to reach the same results. Even the celebrities themselves go through daily exercise routines in order to maintain their fabulous results.

 

The Problem Area: Lower Body

Heidi Klum has managed to make herself not only one of the hottest supermodels in the world but one of the sexiest moms as well. We all know what pregnancy and labor can do to the female body, so how in the world did Heidi get so lucky? By doing exercises to strengthen and tone the hips, thighs, and butt, youíll be as confident as Heidi the next time you throw on a pair of shorts, don a short skirt or sport a swimsuit. One of her most tried and true exercises involves the following:

 

Stand with your feet hip-width apart and place your hands on your hips. While contracting your abs, take a large step sideways with your left foot (think of how a sumo wrestler squats and moves) and keep your toes pointed forward, with your body weight over your heels. Next, straighten your legs and lift your right knee to your chest, while keeping your foot flexed and your torso erect. Kick your right leg sideways while maintaining your balance on your left leg. Afterwards, straighten your torso back up and go back to your original squatting position and repeat the same lifting and kicking motion again, then switch legs. 3 reps of 15 on each side will get your lower body in shape faster than Heidiís strut down the catwalk!

 

The Problem Area: Stomach/Abs

Jennifer Lopez is known for having some of the tightest abs in history. By performing special resistance exercises, you can get your midsection under control. Try this exercise the next time youíve got some free time:

 

Using a medicine ball, or any ball around the house (a basketball for example), stand with your feet hip-width apart and legs straight. Contract your abs and hold the ball with both hands (elbows bent) near your right ear. While keeping your hips squared, rotate your torso to the left and extend your arms so that you lower the ball toward your left ankle. While doing this, bend your knees so that you come to a squat where your thighs are as close and parallel to the ground as possible. Return to your standing position and repeat your reps and then switch sides by moving the ball from your left ear toward your right ankle. For resistance, use a 2- 10 pound medicine ball. This will completely tone and strengthen your abdominals.

 

Other Quick Celebrity Body Tips

Even in her early 50s, Oprah manages to stay fit and fabulous. The media mogul shed her excessive weight over the years by throwing out refined carbs from her diet, participating in a weight training and cardio program, and running five miles day! In order to curb her appetite and late night cravings, Oprah locks her kitchen (and refrigerator) at 7:30pm every night.

 

After giving birth to her first son, Britney Spears lost the 50 pounds she gained during her pregnancy by replacing junk food with chicken and fresh vegetables. In addition to her 90-minute workouts, Britney also participated in yoga, Pilates, weight training, and swimming.
