Pussycat Doll Kimberley Wyatt’s Fitness Tips

Former Pussycat Doll Kimberley Wyatt has one of the fittest physiques in the business. How many women can do a full split on one leg with a smile on her face? While this level of flexibility is beyond most of our wildest dreams, with hard work and dedication you too can achieve a body like Kimberly Wyatt.



How Does She Do It?



Kimberly is a busy singer, dancer, television personality, choreographer and business woman, yet she still finds time to fit in exercise regimes such as dancing, hot yoga, interval training and jogging. How does she do it? It’s all part of maintaining a certain lifestyle.



Diet



For Kimberly, keeping fit is not a hobby or a luxury – it’s her life. By treating her workout as a part of her job, she stays disciplined and focused. Kimberly’s diet largely consists of lean proteins such as grilled chicken or poached eggs; organic vegetables and whole grains such as quinoa. After a workout she snacks on protein bars or protein drinks to keep her energy levels up. 



She drinks very little caffeine and alcohol, but as much water as possible. Of course, she allows herself the odd treat day, with her favourite treats including doughnuts and cupcakes.


Fitness



Kimberly varies her exercise regime to keep her muscles engaged. As well as flexibility training such as hot yoga and cardio exercises such as jogging, she does a lot of strength training to stay toned. 

Favourite strength exercises include squats, push ups and ab crunches. Follow the techniques below to get the most out of your workout and tone up like Kimberly.



Squats

  • Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and keep your back straight.

  • Hold your arms straight out in front of you for balance.

  • Slowly lower your buttocks to the ground until your knees are at a 90 degree angle.
  • Keep your back straight the whole time and make sure your knees are never positioned in front of your feet.

  • Hold the squat position for a second and slowly rise back to the starting position.

  • Repeat 12-15 times, then take a 30 second break and do another two sets.



Push Ups



  • Lie flat on your front on an exercise mat.
  • Place your hands slightly wider than shoulder width.
  • Raise yourself up onto your hands and toes, keeping your body completely straight.
  • Hold the position for a second at the top of the exercise, then slowly lower yourself back down.
  • Repeat 10-12 times, then take a 45 second break and do another two sets.



Ab Crunches



  • Lie flat on your back on an exercise mat and bend your knees so that your feet are shoulder width apart.
  • Lightly rest your fingertips on the crown of your head – do not hold your neck up or use your arm strength to carry you in this exercise.

  • Engage your core muscles and raise your upper torso as high as you can.

  • Hold the position at the top of the exercise and slowly move back down.

  • Repeat 12-15 times, then take a 30 second break and do another two sets.
