What exercise does Kim Kardashian do?

It's no secret that Kim works out and often does so alongside her sisters Kourtney, 39, and Khloe, 34.

She often shares snaps of her training sessions with fans during episodes of Keeping Up With Kardashians and this will no doubt be a part of the KUWTK series.

Her personal trainer, Melissa Alacantra is a body builder and Kim has hired her specifically to help her tone up those famous curves too.

The Kardashian clan also have a family trainer called Dan Brooks who whips all the sisters into shape.

One of her previous PT's, Amanda Lee, revealed what the Kardashians love to do during work outs and it's mostly HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training).

She said: “We don't focus on a lot of cardio because, the workout that I do, it gets your heart rate up so you don't really need to do cardio because it's such a high intensity workout your heart rate stays up the whole time. 

“So it's actually much better than cardio because you have the benefit of your heart rate being up buy you are also building muscle and toning and tightening at the same time.”

Kim Kardashian's diet and nutrition

Last year Kim Kardashian's nutritionist, Colette Heimowitz, revealed the secrets to Kim's diet that help the star keep her figure in check.

She revealed to EliteDaily that it's all about more protein to keep the hunger at bay, and less sugar.

She said: 'The body is only built to circulate about the equivalent of 1-2 teaspoons at a time… but if you’re constantly drinking sugar and eating carbs that turn to sugar in your body, you’re wearing down your sugar metabolism over time… and a lot of that excess sugar converts to fat, and that’s how you gain all your weight.'
