Here are 5 ways she stays in shape.

\Kelly Rowland is palling around with LaLa Anthony – in her swimsuit. The singer shows off her gorgeous figure in a bathing suit in one of her latest social media posts, honoring her famous friend on her birthday. "We need more pics!!! That's means more girl trips!" she captioned the post. How does the 42-year-old maintain her fit physique? Read on to see 5 ways Kelly Rowland stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Follows the 80/20 Rule


Kelly has a moderate approach to diet, trying to eat healthy without being too restrictive. "I never like to say 'diet'," she explained. "I like to say 'eating clean', and you know, listening to your body, and knowing what your body responds to," she told PopSugar. She added to Body and Soul that she abides by the "80/20" rule. "Eighty percent of the time I eat the things my body needs, and 20 percent of the time it's wine or chocolate," she explained. 


She Works Out

"I like working out," she told "I genuinely love working out. I love the way I feel when I'm working out. I love the fact that I'm taking the time to pour back into myself. Workouts for me are a time for [myself] and I get to pour back into myself and I love that." Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.


She Does Pilates

Kelly also does Pilates. "It just keeps the core tight, brings the abs in, the breathing, it's just fantastic," she told Health about the workout. According to research, Pilates exercises are designed to increase muscle strength, endurance, and flexibility, and to improve posture and balance. Experts maintain that it is a great workout for leaning out. 


She Strength Trains

Rowland trains at The Dogpound, where she lifts weights and does other strength training exercises. "No pain … No gains 👊🏽 LET'S GOO!" the gym captioned a photo of Kelly, taken from one of her many workouts. 


She Eats for Her Blood Type

Kelly she tries to eat according to her blood type. "Right now I'm eating for my blood type, which means lots of vegetables and fish," she told Body and Soul. That being said, she allows herself to indulge. "I'm a southern girl, so sometimes I treat myself to burgers and bacon."
