Kim Kardashian’s personal trainer Melissa Alcantara gets real about exactly HOW she sculpts the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s super-toned abs
Kim Kardashian West is known for her incredible figure as she constantly shares updates on Instagram and Twitter, and the mum-of-three is never shy about showing off her toned body in skimpy outfits either.
Most recently, the 37-year-old has been showing off her incredible bikini body to her 110million Instagram followers.
Under one snap of the reality star on holiday in Turks and Caicos, one fan wrote: “SUPER BODY, BABY!!! Keep these pictures coming, PLEASE!!!!”
Seeing as the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star loves to share everything with her fans, Kim recently took to her app to reveal exactly how she achieves such enviable abs.
In a post on Kim’s website entitled How I Get A Flat Stomach: My Exact Ab workout, Kanye West’s wife reveals, well, her exact ab workout…
In fact, to keep it technical, it was Kim’s trainer, Melissa Alcantara, who let fans in on the routine.
And if you fancy giving it a go at home, here’s what you need to know:
If you’re going for a home workout, you’ll need to get an ab roller before you get started on this one.
Starting from just £6.99 though, they don’t break the bank. Melissa said: “Kneel on the floor and place the ab roller on the floor in front of you, with your hands on each side of the device.”
“You should be on your hands and knees, like a kneeling pushup position. Slowly roll the ab roller forward, stretching your body into a straight line. Go as low as you can without breaking form, then slowly roll yourself back to your starting position. Keep your upper back a bit rounded and your core as tight as possible.
“Align your head and neck with your spine at all times. As your core becomes stronger, you’ll have better engagement.”
Okay, so planks aren’t our favourite thing, but they can be done in the comfort of our own home, which we appreciate.
Melissa, who got into fitness after giving birth, explained: “Get into a pushup position with your hands directly under your shoulders.”
On www.kimkardashianwest.com she continued: “Engage your core and glutes so that your body is in a straight line. Hold for 1 minute, then take 30 seconds to rest, then hold again for a minute. Repeat until you get to 4 minutes of total plank holds.”
Spoiler: You’re going to need rope for this one, so keep this for the gym only.
“Using the rope on a cable fly machine, choose a starting weight that will challenge you (about 30 pounds, or 14kg, but adjust as needed).
“Then, get into a kneeling position in front of the machine. Grab onto the rope with both hands and then place your thumbs on your temples. Your hands will stay in this position the entire time to engage your core. Don’t pull with your arms!
“Bend down at the waist, lower your head to the floor and lower your butt so your thighs are at a 60-degree angle. Don’t let your booty touch your heels! Return to the starting position and repeat for 4 sets of 30 reps. Be as stable as possible, because this one is SUPER evil.”

This one sounds simple enough, right? While it might be simple to follow, it’s not as easy as it looks.
Melissa states: “Lift both legs off the ground until you create a 90-degree angle with your legs. Then, lower your legs, making sure your feet don’t touch the ground. Continue to lift and lower your legs for 4 sets of 20 reps.”
We’ll be looking just like Kim any day now…
