Kim Kardashian and her sisters are one of the most popular celebrities in magazines today (and for the past couple of years). And it’s no wonder that Kim is always working her butt off (butt on?) to look fabulous for all those magazine tabloids.
Whether it’s running outdoors (Runyon Canyon is one of her favorites) or sleeping in her gym clothing to make the morning workout easier, Kim is always working out. We’ve even seen her and her sisters busting it at Barry’s Bootcamp.
Without question Kim Kardashian is one of the most fitness-conscious celebrities around. Indeed, Kim has even released her own workout series Fit in Your Jeans By Friday. The series has 3 different workout DVDs: Ultimate Butt Body Sculpt, Amazing Abs Body Sculpt, and Butt Blasting Cardio Step.
If you’re willing to workout as hard as Kim Kardashian (and don’t have a copy of her workout DVDs), then check out this workout routine that Kim disclosed to Shape Magazine.
Reps: 6-15 on one side, then the other.
Body Parts: Arms, Butt, Core, and Legs.
What You’ll Need: Medicine Ball (or use a dumbbell)
Start: Stand with feet hip-width apart and hold a weighted ball next to right ear, elbows bent.
Movement: Step out to the left and lower into a lunge as you straighten arms out and arc the ball around so it’s outside of left ankle. Bring arms back up to starting position as you step right foot next to left.

300 creator Frank Miller recently discussed his follow up work titled Xerxes in this interview with the LA Times and 300 Director Zack Snyder has expressed interest in bringing Miller’s latest work to the big screen. While this project is still far from being complete it reminds us of the fitness craze 300 brought on in 2007.
The “300 workout” first appeared on the Men’s Health website in video form as demonstrated by Craig Ballantyne of Turbulence Training. Contrary to popular belief Ballantyne did not create this workout but his YouTube video demonstration of the workout has been viewed over 1 million times.
The original “300 rep Spartan Workout” was created by Mark Twight for actor Gerard Butler. Butler talks about his grueling 4 months of training for the movie in this interview with Men’s Health.
“You know that every bead of sweat falling off your head, every weight you’ve pumped — the history of that is all in your eyes,” says Butler of his dedication. “That was a great thing, to put on that cape and put on that helmet, and not have to think, Shit, I should have trained more. Instead, I was standing there feeling like a lion.”

Robert Downey Jr. is burning up the silver screen with his latest flick Sherlock Holmes, so let’s take a look at what he’s doing in the gym to burn off the calories and keep his ripped look. Robert’s trainer Brad Bose blogged about his methods for transforming the actor into Iron Man’s Tony Stark, then to Holmes, and back to Stark for Iron Man 2, set to release later this year.
For his transformation to Sherlock Holmes, Bose had Robert use the Vortex Perfect Storm and the Ab Coaster. In addition, the actor was training with a kung fu instructor for the fight scenes.
For Iron Man 2, variety was the key. Bose says:
I can probably count on one hand the number of times we repeated the same workout. There was no set routine — we used a more unconventional method to get him big and strong without sacrificing the time to bulk up and then diet down.
It was time to pull out the sledgehammers, truck tires, firehoses, wheelbarrows, bamboo bars, weight sleds, macebells, meels, indian clubs, etc.
At times he looked more like a construction worker than a movie star with the way he trained. Follow that up the following day with extremely high tech equipment like the vortex, the vibe plate and the speedboard and you had a combination where the future of training met the past.
Optimizing everything we did was a constant physical and mental challenge even for Iron Man. He never knew from day to day what I was going to throw at him (sometimes literally).
Salma Hayek always looks gorgeous on the red-carpet. She has a fabulous body, shiny hair, and glowing skin. For years fans have wondered about her secret for looking so great. Now we know the trick – Salma uses a juice cleanse! The star just collaborated with professional juicer Eric Helms to start her own brand of diet cleanse, called the Cooler Cleanse. With this liquid diet, you can get her look too!
Salma Hayek recently told Us Magazine, “I’ve been doing juice cleanses for 15 years.” She says, “If I’ve been indulging in rich foods, a cleanse is a wonderful way to hit the reset button.”
Inspired by her personal results, Salma started the Cooler Cleanse. The diet consists of a three or five-day delivery program for the detox juices. Both Salma Hayek and Eric Helms taste-tested each juice drink for both nutrition and flavor. Further, the pair worked with New York-based nutritionists and vegan chefs to create a complete juice and raw-food menu. The team used the best ingredients, making sure everything is organic and sustainable.
