The famous Barranquilla singer Shakira turned 45 last February and her physical appearance is as if she were 30. She has toned legs and a flat abdomen to the envy of many women in the entertainment world.
Recently, the Colombian artist turned on her social networks explaining some of her fitness tricks in a video. In addition, she revealed that she enjoys doing extreme activities such as surfing and to the surprise of her followers and fans, she showed a dynamic routine that she performs daily in her gym, accompanied by a personal trainer.
In the recording, the composer and creator of the Pies Descalzos Foundation, in Colombia, detailed what her favorite exercises are to lift her buttocks and eliminate the bulging belly, which according to her, if the person performs them with discipline, they will notice satisfactory results from the first week.
It is no secret to anyone that Shakira always surprises in her performances with her stylized figure and her ability to do choreography, especially if she shares the stage with two other sculptural artists such as the Diva from the Bronx, Jennifer Lopez and the stunning Beyonce.
The also businesswoman and wife of Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué specified the exercise routines she does to lift her buttocks and strengthen her abdomen:
Squats at home
In the short clip, the singer is seen performing some squats with her legs apart at hip height, when she lowers her back, she remains straight and stands firmly. Trainers recommend doing this exercise in four circuits of 15 repetitions. For greater effectiveness, you can add weight.
Dumbbell Front Raises
To perform this exercise you have to lie on your back on a yoga blanket. Hold the dumbbells (according to the weight that the person can support), then raise in a straight line and lower them with force. Repeat 20 times for four circuits.
It is suggested with a face-down position resting the knees on the floor, placing the towel under the palm of the hand, and sliding upwards. Repeat 10 times on the right and left sides, for the same circuits as the previous exercises.
Another celebrity who remains very fit at 52 is the singer, actress, producer and mother born in the heart of the Bronx, New York, Jennifer Lopez. This artist sculpts her figure thanks to her daily exercise discipline, to which the star has been faithful for decades.
For this reason, Vogue Mexico contacted one of its trainers, David Kirsch, a fitness expert who lives in New York. “Whether you’re working with JLo or anyone else, there’s an old biblical phrase that says ‘look, listen and teach,’ and I think those are very powerful words,” Kirsch said.
Kirsch says that the difference between a good coach and one who is just looking for more followers on Instagram (a practice that he says is becoming more prevalent in her industry), is the ability of coaches to intuitively understand mental needs, physical and spiritual of each individual.
In the case of JLO, the expert considers that she is one of the easiest people to work with. Kirsch is blunt in saying that no two bodies are the same and that this implies that there are always different factors that come into play, including diet, lifestyle, or even stress levels of each one.
“Jennifer is very meticulous about her diet, her sleep, and just about everything in her life in general,” says the trainer. “It’s not just a physical thing, it’s about transforming every aspect of your life,” she says.
