Rule 1: Be Disciplined


Kendall understands the importance of discipline. When she needs to get into shape, she gives it her all.. "I worked out so hard for that, like, literally every single day — sometimes twice," she told People about how she got ready for one of her first Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows. "I'd go to my trainer, then I'd go for a run a couple hours later."


Rule 2: Lift Weights

Weight lifting is a big part of Kendall's regiment. The model has trained with Gunnar Peterson and also Revenge Body and Beach Body trainer Autumn Calabrese. "I hate cardio," she told Who What Wear. "I'd rather just stand there and lift some weights than run in place." However, she doesn't use that as an excuse. "But I'll do it!" Her favorite exercises are those that work out her abs and her butt, like squats and planks. According to Calabrese via Us, Kendall completes hour-long workouts three to four times a week. 


Rule 3: Eat Healthy

One of the most important rules Kendall follows is healthy eating. "I typically eat lean chicken and brown rice, and am always snacking on raw veggies with dip and hummus. I wish I had more time to do grocery shopping because I like picking out my own vegetables," she told Harper's Bazaar. She loves eating at restaurants but tries to eat healthy. "I love Nobu for sushi or Craig's, where I order the vegan spaghetti Bolognese or Margherita pizza," she added.


Rule 4: Go Running

Want to steal a page out of Kendall's fitness rule book? Hit the pavement. "I love running outside," Kendall confessed to People. "You can go on a run on a treadmill but it's really not the same. I used to be the most athletic kid. I was always outside. I was super outdoorsy running around in the mud and doing that kind of stuff. I don't do that ever [now]. You're always like stuck inside, you're always in a gym, or you're always in your phone or whatever. So to actually to get outside and run outside … I enjoy it."


Rule 5: Get Off the Couch


Kendall also forces herself to get off the couch.  "Sometimes when I'm watching TV, I think to myself, 'I should be doing crunches and sit-ups right now,'" she wrote on her no-longer-active blog per Byrdie. "Then I get off the couch and do it."


Rule 6: Get Workouts Over in the Morning

As to when Kendall works out, she also has a rule. "I prefer to work out in the morning. To stay toned, I do a lot of ab work with my trainer, Gunnar Peterson, and occasionally I'll take a kickboxing class," she told Harper's Bazaar.


Rule 7: Sleep

A big rule for Kendall has to do with sleep. "I have to sleep at least seven to eight hours to be fully awake for the next day, so I try to get to bed as soon as I can. I've trained myself to fall asleep anywhere possible, in the car or on a flight," she told Harper's Bazaar. 


Rule 8: Drink Tea

Kendall also makes sure to drink a hot beverage in the morning, but not coffee. "I usually start my day off with a cup of [Kusmi] Detox Tea," she told E! News. "I have like 12 cups a day."


Rule 9: Allow Yourself to Cheat


Kendall eats healthy the majority of time, but cheating is also in her rule book. Her favorite indulgence? Fritos Chili Cheese. "Ever since I was a kid [they're] the only chips that I truly love and will eat all the time. They're really bomb," she told People.
