How Khloé Kardashian Works Out with Boyfriend Tristan Thompson
A couple that works out together gets ripped together.
Khloé Kardashian is an open book when giving health and fitness tips to her followers. She's shared all kinds of useful information, like the best sex position for a hardcore workout and her go-to healthy fast-food picks. If you want to work out like a Kardashian, just keep an eye on Khloé's social media channels, where she often posts videos of her workouts-either solo, with her trainer, or even with her sisters. (Check out these five crazy-effective moves from her trainer Gunnar Peterson.) You'll find she incorporates a lot of equipment like resistance bands, stability balls, and some badass battle ropes. And this girl is definitely not afraid to lift heavy.
So it's no surprise to learn that she's all about working out with her boyfriend, pro basketball player Tristan Thompson, (and in preparation for taco Tuesday, no less, according to her Instagram post-#couplegoals.) She gave a full breakdown of the workout on her app, but we're sharing two total-body moves of her routine here.
A. Begin in plank position with hands directly below shoulders, and legs long.
B. Tighten abs and bring left knee up to outside of left arm. Return left foot to starting position, then repeat on opposite side, bringing right knee up to outside of right arm.
C. Place right foot back in starting position, then perform a push-up, lowering chest toward ground and pushing back up through palms.
D. Continue this same pattern.
"This is how you strengthen your core-especially the obliques!" says Kardashian. "These are not easy, so do as many reps as you can. If your hips start to sag or lift, then you need to give yourself a break."
Standing Dumbbell Rows
A. With a dumbbell in each hand, hinge forward at the hips with knees slightly bent. (This will activate your hamstrings and glutes).
B. "Row" both weights along the sides of your body.
"This is a great move for your upper back muscles!" she says. "Don't forget to squeeeeeeeze your shoulder blades when you pull back! Do 10 reps, take a little breather, and then do 10 more."
