She Lifts Weights
Kim has worked out with tons of trainers, but really transformed her body when she started training with bodybuilder Melissa Alcantara, who busts her famous butt in the gym. "I've been working out really hardcore with a bodybuilder for one year. September is our one-year anniversary," Kim revealed to E! News in 2018, via People. Ever since, the duo have been lifting "heavy weights," per Kim with Alcantara adding to Women's Health that 85% of their training is done with weights.
She Works Out Every Day That Ends in "Y"
If you want Kim's body, you will have to work hard for it—every day. "I work out about an hour-and-a-half every single day," she confessed to E! News. "The Department of Health and Human Services recommends that healthy adults include aerobic activity and strength training in their fitness plans, specifically:
- At least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or an equivalent combination of moderate and vigorous aerobic activity
- Strength training exercises of all the major muscle groups at least twice a week," says the Mayo Clinic.
She Has a "No Excuses" Policy
Kim doesn't make excuses to miss her workouts. Her trainer explained to People in 2020 that Kim shows up no matter what. "Just like anybody else, there are days where Kim's not really feeling it, but she will do it," she said. "Then there are a lot of days when she's killing it! She never questions the stuff that I make her do, she's just like, 'Okay,' and I love that."
While Kim doesn't do a lot of cardio, she revealed on Instagram that she added treadmill sprints to her routine. "Been sprinting every day!" she wrote in one of her Instagram Stories. "I've been seeing changes!"
Her Diet Is Plant-Based
Kim was once a big fan of the Atkins diet, but now eats primarily plants. "Plant based and two workouts a day for 30 days to get our mind and body right this year!" Kim revealed in a January 2021 Instagram post.
