"1 thing that has helped me a lot is drinking a gallon of water a day," she wrote in the caption.
She No Longer Keeps Unhealthy Food in Her Home
In the second episode of her "Hottie Bootcamp" series, Megan decided to clean out her kitchen. Megan admits that she previously was a big eater, and didn't think about what she was putting in her body. "I prefer to snack, and I prefer to eat no matter what I wish to eat. And I simply really feel like recently, the issues that I've been consuming have been not so good for my physique," she said in the video. She captioned the video on her Instagram, "Throwing out thee junk food. Today I cleaned the fridge to the best of my abilities."
She Does HIIT and Cardio Workouts
In both episode 10 and episode 12 of Megan's "Hottie Bootcamp" series, the rapper tries out cardio, HIIT, and weight training workouts. In episode 10, the rapper is seen doing squats with both a barbell and a bosu ball, step ups with dumbbells, RDLS, and driving knee kicks. In episode 12, to warm up, Megan, her trainer, and a friend, run up a sandy hill to start. "This is the hardest s— I ever did," she said after her run. They then start doing intervals with weights, burpees, and crunches.
She Uses Kettlebells
In her "Hottie Bootcamp" series, Megan is often seen using kettlebells in her at-home exercises. She even did an episode dedicated to her trainer, Tim Boutte's 30 minute kettlebell challenge. In the episode, Boutte describes the challenge as "exercise for 30 seconds, then rest for 30 seconds," and repeating this process. "It's a total of five different kettlebell exercises, we're going to try to repeat that thing three times, which would basically equate to about 15 minute workout," he says in the episode. However, Boutte had Megan do the exercise five times and for 30 minutes in the episode. The workout consists of swings, goblet squats, Bulgarian squats, lunges, and suitcases, all with a kettlebell.
She Prioritizes Her Lower Body
Megan tends to do a lot of workouts that tone and strengthen her lower body. In her "Hottie Bootcamp" series, Megan is often seen doing forms of lunges and squats in a lot of the different types of workouts she tries. She even dedicated a full episode to her lower body, which involved doing duck walks with a kettlebell, RDLs with a dumbbell, and kettlebell squats on a BOSU ball. Megan joked in the video, "I know I wanna have a nice" backside, "but do it have to hurt to receive this" backside?
