Kim proved to the world that weightlifting isn't just for bulking up when she transformed her body with the help of bodybuilder Melissa Alcantara. "I've been working out really hardcore with a bodybuilder for one year. September is our one-year anniversary," Kim told E! News in 2018, via People. She "heavy weights," with Alcantara adding to Women's Health that 85% of their training is done with weights and just 15% is cardio.
Move Every Day
"I work out about an hour-and-a-half every single day," Kim revealed E! News. According to Alcantara the duo train together six days a week for 60 to 90 minutes.
Don't Make Excuses
Kim has a no excuses policy when it comes to the gym. "Just like anybody else, there are days where Kim's not really feeling it, but she will do it," Alcantara explained to People in 2020. "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 isn't big into cardio, in 2021 she revealed on Instagram that short and fast sprints are part of her routine. "Been sprinting every day!" she wrote in one of her Instagram Stories. "I've been seeing changes!"
Eat a Plant-Based Diet
Kim, once a carnivore devoted to the Atkins diet, primarily plants. "Plant based and two workouts a day for 30 days to get our mind and body right this year!" she revealed in a January 2021 Instagram post.
Prep for Workouts Ahead of Time
Just like some people food prep to set them up for dietary success, Kim workout preps. "I will lay my clothes out the night before so when I sleep in, I'll wake up at 5.53[am] instead of 5.45, and I just know my outfit is there," she said. "I have a toothbrush and my toothpaste all ready to go, laid out by my sink. I just have to brush my teeth and go to the gym."
Fuel Up for Fitness
Kim fuels up with the right foods prior to her workouts. "My trainer Mel always says that before and after you train, you should eat simple carbs, like sweet potatoes, and small amounts of fat and protein, like chicken. You should also have veggies with your meals, since you need them to help effectively break down and absorb your protein, fat, and carbs," she explained on her app in 2018, per Harper's Bazaar.
Try LISS Workouts
LISS workouts are also part of Kim's routine. "Two days out of the week we'll do steady-state cardio," Alcantara told WH, "so just walking at a steady pace on the treadmill for usually around 20 minutes. Nothing getting the heart rate too high."
Avoid Processed Food
For the most part, Kim doesn't eat anything processed. "I want her to eat real food that's cooked every day," Alcantara told People. "Most likely if it comes out of a box, it's not going to be good for you."
Set Down Goals
"When I work with Kim, we like to set goals that we can feel good about reaching," Alcantara told WH. "Once we have a goal set, we write it down. I've found that helps hold you accountable. And, it feels amazing when you do finally reach your goal!"
