See Blac Chyna's Drastic Transformation After Weight Loss
Over the last few months, Blac Chyna has been making big life changes and opting for a more natural appearance by dissolving her facial fillers and having her breast and butt implants removed. She revealed in an Instagram video from her doctor's office that she's ditching her cosmetic procedures so she can "grow." She shared, "As y'all know, I'm changing my life and changing my ways," she said. "So one of the things that I feel like is gonna take me to the next level is obviously taking some of these … shots out."
But that's not the only major difference. The mother of two has also been putting in a lot of time at the gym and has completely transformed physically. The reality star, whose real name is Angela White, will appear in the second season of Special Forces: World's Toughest Test that's premiering September 25th on Fox, and has been documenting her intense workouts that have prepared her for the harsh challenges and helped her drop weight. Read on.
BOSU Ladder Pushes with Hops
Scroll through the 35-year-old's feed and you'll see a lot of workout videos detailing the hard work she's put in. In a recent video, she shares multiple exercises she does and starts off with BOSU ladder pushes with hops.
What the Expert Says: "This exercise involves holding a BOSU (a half-sphere stability trainer) while hopping in and out of a rope ladder on the floor," ACE-certified trainer and nutritionist Mary Sabat MS, RDN, LD explains. "She pushes the BOSU in and out as she hops, which primarily engages her lower body muscles, including quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, and glutes. Additionally, it challenges her core muscles for stability as she balances on the BOSU." Sabat says, "The combination of hopping and pushing the BOSU adds a cardiovascular element to the exercise, helping to improve her cardiovascular fitness and overall endurance. It also enhances her balance and coordination due to the instability of the BOSU."
Kettlebell Squat to Shoulder Press
Next up, Chyna holds a kettlebell in each hand as she does squats and then a shoulder press.
What the Expert Says: According to Sabat, "This exercise works her quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, deltoids (shoulder muscles), triceps, and core muscles." She says, "By combining a squat with a shoulder press, Blac Chyna is engaging both lower body and upper body muscles, making this exercise efficient for full-body strength development and calorie burning."
Walking Lunges with Kettlebells
A third exercise the model does in the video is walking lunges with kettlebells where she holds one in each hand and does lunges dropping her back knee toward the ground.
What the Expert Says: According to Sabat, "This exercise primarily targets the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves, while also engaging her core muscles for stability." She explains, "Walking lunges are excellent for building lower body strength and muscular endurance. Holding kettlebells adds resistance, increasing the challenge for her leg muscles."
Bent Over Rows with Kettlebells
In the same video, Chyna does several moves with kettlebells including bent-over rows where she leans forward and pulls the kettlebells toward her hips.
What the Expert Says: "This exercise targets her upper back muscles, specifically the latissimus dorsi, rhomboids, and trapezius muscles, along with the biceps and core muscles," Sabat explains. "She adds, "Bent-over rows help improve upper body strength and posture by targeting the muscles responsible for pulling movements. Strengthening these muscles can contribute to a well-rounded physique."
Another move she does is a sideways shuffle, which is a great lower-body workout.
What the Expert Says: To perform this move properly, Sabat says to start with "bent knees, she shuffles rapidly sideways over a short distance while staying low." She says "This exercise focuses on her lower body muscles, including the inner and outer thighs, quadriceps, and hip stabilizers," and has several benefits. "The sidewise shuffle is a dynamic exercise that improves lateral movement and agility. It also engages the muscles responsible for stabilizing the hips, which can be valuable for overall lower body strength and injury prevention."
In another video, Chyna does three exercises in the gym focusing on strength like left extensions, which target your quadriceps.
What the Expert Says: "Leg extensions primarily target the quadriceps muscles, helping to strengthen and tone the front of the thighs," says Sabat. "This exercise can also help improve knee stability and function. It's commonly used for building leg strength and adding definition to the quads."
Crunches with Legs Straight Up
For the second move, Chyna focuses on her abs by doing crunches with her legs straight up in the air.
What the Expert Says: Sabat explains, "This exercise involves lifting the upper body off the floor while keeping the legs straight up in the air. It specifically targets the upper abdominal muscles and engages the core. The extended leg position increases the challenge by requiring greater stability and control. It's effective for building core strength and achieving a more defined midsection."
Leg Press with Chest Press Using Free Weights
For the third and final move in the video, Chyna does a leg press, which targets the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes, and a chest press that hits the pectoral muscles, triceps, and anterior deltoids, according to Sabat.
What the Expert Says: "Performing both exercises in a combined manner provides a full-body workout, enhancing both lower-body and upper-body strength," Sabat tells us. "Additionally, the use of free weights for the chest press adds an element of instability, engaging more stabilizing muscles for balance and control."
