Here is everything you need to know about her workout and approach to fitness.

Karrueche Tran is showing off her workout moves – in a two-piece exercise set.

In the Instagram Reel she perfectly executes a key kettlebell move, proving to her millions of followers that she is strong and hardcore when it comes to fitness. What is the exercise responsible for her cut arms? Celebwell has the details. 


Karrueche's Exercise: Kettlebell Gorilla Rows

In the clip, Karrueche squats down and does kettlebell gorilla rows. "Gorilla Rows are a great Bent-Over-Row exercise variation that target the muscles of the upper back, including the lats, rhomboids, and trapezius, as well as the shoulders and biceps," explains the Fitting Rooms London. "They also help develop core stability and lower body isometric strength as the movement requires holding a static hip-hinge whilst rowing unilaterally."


Here's How to Do Them

Here's how to do the move, according to the gym. Position two kettlebells of the same weight side-by side. In a mid-wide stance squat down and hinge your body forward, reaching for the bells without arching your back. Grip both and row one elbow back, aiming for your belly button. Repeat with the other arm. 


She Works Out Three Times a Week


Karrueche exercises "at least three times a week," she told Muscle & Fitness. In addition to weight lifting she does barre workouts. "Barre is good for the thighs and the booty, and I'm all about the booty. I also work with a trainer in the gym. I use machines. I do squats and sumo squats with the bar on my shoulders, and lunges with dumbbells. I'm tiny, so I don't want to use too much weight. I don't want to be a little stick with muscle."


She Also Does Yoga

"I do really hot yoga, like 110 degrees," she reveals, noting that she loves Hot 8 in Los Angeles. — A California-based yoga studio chain that provides different styles of hot yoga, incorporating free weights and cardio exercises. "Hot 8 increases stamina and strength and provides a total body workout," she told HollywoodLife."I love that it isn't just a workout. I can also detox my skin, my face, my body, just everything. It just makes me feel so good and powerful. Not only are you cleansing your body and your face, you're just stretching and you're flexible."


She Makes Sure to Hydrate

Because she exercises so intensely, Tran prioritizes hydration. "My one thing is, I drink lots of water," she told HollywoodLife. "I know it sounds cliché, but I try to drink big bottles of water. I try to drink at least one a day, or two, but it should be three per day, so three liters a day." According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.
