Kendall Jenner is one of the lesser-known Kardashians, a half-sister to the power four: Kim, Chloe, Kourtney, and Rob. She is also sister to Kylie Jenner. She is a powerhouse in fashion and media influencing and has millions of avid fans all over social media platforms.
Kendall is a professional model, one of the highest-paid in the past 2 years at the time of writing. This means that to her, image is everything and that she needs to maintain it. So far she is doing a great job at it and is quite famous for her abs.
She trains under one of the best celebrity fitness coaches, Gunnar Peterson, just like her half-sister Kardashians.
Kendall was a cheerleader in high school, so she got acquainted with exercise at an early age. However, it still takes a lot of effort and sacrifice to maintain her body in that enviable shape.
However, Kendall does not believe in fad workouts. She prefers leading an active lifestyle and loves running. She would rather run outside in the wind and fresh air than being stuck at a treadmill. She also hates doing other types of cardio in the gym, but sometimes there is no choice and she has to be a good sport about it.
Her sculpted abs didn’t come about just by running, though, and she also does regular gym sessions. Peterson puts her through per paces, where most of her exercises are geared towards specific areas of her figure like legs, thighs, butt, and abs.
A typical workout week for her would look like this.
- 45-minute run.
- 15-minute stretching exercises.
- 45 minutes of core pilates.
- 8 minutes of buns.
- 30 minutes of swimming.
- 8 minutes of abs.
- Rest day, with an optional 30-minute swim.
- Forearm plank: 30 secs.
- Straight arm plank: 30 seconds.
- Forearm side plank; 15 seconds for each side.
- Side plank elbow to knee crunch: 5 reps for each side.
- Straight arm plank: 15 seconds, with around-the-world arm and leg raises.
- Forearm arm plank, alternating from the knees to the elbow: 10 reps.
- Bicycle crunches for 30 seconds.
- Raised toe touches for 30 seconds.
- Rocking straight arm plank: 15 seconds.
- Rocking straight arm plank: 15 seconds.
- Bent-knee jackknife: 15 seconds.
- Russian twist: 15 seconds.
- Crunches: 20 reps.
- Donkey kicks: 15 reps for every side.
Kendall also involves herself in other core exercises like mountain climbers, which she can do in rounds of 15 minutes combined with others like the medicine ball throw.
She places a lot of emphasis on her abs, butt, legs, and back. This makes sense because her career depends on her image.
This is also a day of rest day.
Kendall believes in eating healthy, not only to stay in shape but because its the sensible thing to do. Your health depends almost wholly on what you eat, and when that is messed up a lot can go wrong.
For Kendall, a paleo diet is the way to go. For the uninitiated, the paleo diet involves eating what our ancestors would have reasonably obtained by hunting and gathering.
That would mean fish, poultry, lean meat, nuts, seeds, and fresh fruit. It was started back in the 1970s in the belief that paleolithic man could teach us a bit about healthy eating, hence the name.
For breakfast, she believes that it is best taken immediately after waking up. She advises stocking up on protein for energy, as well as fiber to help you feel full. On a typical morning, she could take egg white and turkey scramble together with a pumpkin spice latte.
For lunch, she prefers a light meal. A tuna salad sandwich with a leek and potato soup would do it for her.
A typical dinner for Kendall would consist of vegetable stir fry with bison and chicken curry.
She is big on vegetables like kale and spinach, and well as farm fresh organic fruits. She particularly loves strawberries.
For snacking, she prefers hummus, organic smoothies, yogurt, green juice, and good old coffee. She also drinks a lot of water to keep hydrated.
Besides all that healthy stuff, Kendall also admits to having an affair with junk food. She loves to cheat with cupcakes, and sometimes even pizza, fries and fried chicken.
In her list of foods to avoid are soft drinks, processed foods, artificial ingredients, and chemical preservatives.
