Walk That Walk: Get a Body Like Rihanna

Want a body like RiRi? Her workout regime is actually quite simple. When’s she’s on the road she’ll workout at least 3 times a week for 25 minutes. But when she’s settled in one place she kicks it up to 5 workouts a week and 30 minutes of cardio which is up from the usual 10 minutes when she’s on the road. 

Rihanna’s cardio includes biking or cycling, jumping rope without a rope, stationary jogging and jumping jacks, exercises she can do in a hotel room or backstage before a show.
As for her most noticeable assets, her glutes try these 4 moves: Aim for 3 sets of 20-25
1. Curtsey Lunge (a.k.a. Skater Lunge): Stand with your feet together, then take a large lunge backward with your left leg, moving your leg diagonally behind you as you lunge. Repeat with your right leg, and continue to rapidly alternate between legs until you finish your set. If you’d like to modify this exercise, try a stationary reverse lunge, continuing to alternate your legs.
2. Step-Ups: Using a chair or a bench, step up with your left leg, simply bringing your right leg along with you, and then lead with your left leg on the way back down. Do all your reps on the left side, then switch to the right and start again.
3. Step-Across: Stand to the side of your bench or chair. Step on using your right foot from the right side. Bring your left leg up, and then step down with your right foot on the left side of the bench. Continue alternating sides for 20 to 25 repetitions.
4. Stiff Leg Deadlift: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and a weight on the floor in front of you: either dumbbells, a barbell…Lean over, pick up the weight and slowly come up to standing, sliding your hips back and keeping your hamstrings tight. Return the weight to the ground slowly, then repeat.
