How Does The ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ Stay Hot? Kate Upton’s Trainer Tells Sleek Physique Secrets [Video]

When you’ve earned the title of “Sexiest Woman Alive,” you know that you’ve worked for it. That’s the view of Kate Upton, who received the first ever “Sexiest Woman Alive” title at the People Magazine Awards. The model/actress graciously accepted the award by emphasizing the importance of mental outlook and attitude as well as a hot body, noted Shape magazine.

“This is such an honor to me because sexy to me means someone who’s confident and happy, and that’s the person I always strive to be,” revealed Kate.

When it comes to striving for a sleek physique, however, Upton has a secret weapon. His name is David Kirsch, known as the celebrity trainer responsible for red carpet bodies ranging from Heidi Klum’s ageless beauty to slender Anne Hathaway.

David has trained Upton to use her muscles for high-powered workouts that combine calorie-blasting benefits with toning.

“When she’s in town we work out every day — 5 days a week,” revealed Kirsch.

Their 60-minute workouts emphasize abs and arms, while also incorporating cardiovascular moves. Lunges, squats, and push-ups help Kate to maximize her time by using her own body for fast results, adds David.

“It’s all about toning. She was born with the most amazing curves — we just work to maximize and enhance them.”

But don’t forget the importance of diet, emphasizes Kirsch. Her low-carb diet is high in protein and also avoids gluten. Kate is big on eggs for breakfast, vegetables, and sashimi for dinner.

As the Inquisitr reported, 2014 is considered the era of the big booty. Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Lopez all are considered contenders for the most delightful derriere, although Nicki takes credit for developing the anthem of those assets.

“Oh yeah, I put out a song embracing the bootay and the world stopped and hailed the booty so…. shout out to all the bootys out there!”

So how should you train to possess the perfect posterior?

Kirsch stresses squats for his celebrity clients like Upton, he told Yahoo! Health. And it’s all about achieving a curved caboose.

“If you’re mindlessly doing a squat, like most people, your knees come down over your toes, and you’re immediately working your quads and not your a**. Unless your engaging your mind first and connecting it to what you’re doing with your body, you’re not going to facilitate anything real.”

Author of several fitness and diet books, such as The Ultimate New York Body Plan: Just 2 weeks to a total transformation, Kirsch emphasizes the use of protein in the diet, reported the Examiner. He also recommends focusing on the quality of foods rather than the quantity when it comes to weight loss and health.

And for women who worry that doing strengthening exercises will make them heavier, David has a message.

“Regardless of your weight, exercise and forget the fears about too much muscle,” says Kirsch.
