I personally would like Kate Upton‘s body. I prefer the curves, plus I’m Latina curves are given to you whether you want them or not, so luckily I do!
Kate’s most recent cover was the 2013 Sports Illustrated cover which she shot in the Antarctica! I mean, was that really necessary? I know plenty of sound stages that offer very believable green screens. I get it though, it’s great to SAY you shot there. Any who, Kate is curvy, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t work for those curves. Her New York based “fitness expert” David Kirsch let us in on what it took to get Kate’s body curvy yet long and lean.
The secret tool David used to get Kate’s body into work out mode or like the kids on Instagram call it, “beast mode” was making an intense regiment off the bat.
” At the beginning, we did two-a-days seven days a week. Then, we did one-and-a-half or two hours five to six days per week. The idea was to create a strict cardio and sculpting boot camp that entailed weights and resistance bands, sprinting and calisthenics, shadow and kick boxing. The workouts were very intense cardio sculpting circuits centered on core, legs, butt, and arms.”
Here’s the kicker, that wasn’t all, when she got close to the weeks leading up to the cover David added more cardio.
“For the cover, we stepped up the intensity and added an additional 45 minutes of cardio—rowing, sprints, and elliptical. She also restricted her diet to shakes, greens, and one snack bar per day.”
Um. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to get to “Sports Illustrated shape”. Bianca hates cardio and that seems like a huge component to get Kate Upton‘s curv-ilicious body. Maybe I should check out what Naomi Watts’ work out regiment is.
