I Tried Selena Gomez's Workout Routine And Here's How It Went
Selena Gomez is one of Hollywood's most loved celebrities. She doesn't shy away from sharing her ever so private health issues and it's truly admirable. Selena, who recently had a kidney transplant due to the auto-immune disease Lupus, has always looked in shape and toned AF. And recently she's been seen out and about after taking a hot yoga class (when she's not hanging with Justin Bieber, obviously). Safe to say Selena loves to switch up her workout routine.
Other than being an amazing person for young girls to look up to, she's also super busy from making music to making new movies. But she always makes sure to get in her workout routine, which I actually tried. Her trainer Amy Rosoff Davis is a celebrity trainer and said that Selena loves to mix yoga, pilates and toning for long and lean muscles. And let me tell you, it's no wonder Selena has such a nice body. This workout routine is not easy.
When she's not doing hardcore workouts, Selena actually rides her bike to get some fresh air and a little exercise. When you have Lupus, it's super important to take care of your body. So Selena also takes ginger shots in the morning and keeps her diet clean, which is definitely another reason why her body is goals.
If you're short on time, live in an apartment or don't have any weights, then this workout is perfect for you. You actually use your body weight to lean out your muscles, just by fatiguing the muscle itself. This sounds like you wouldn't be sore, but believe me, you'll feel it everywhere the next day! I honestly didn't think it would be that hard, since I'm an avid Kayla Itsines' BBG Workout lover however you actually feel tighter and more toned the next day. So add this to your workout routine a couple days a week, and you'll have Selena Gomez's body in no time! This workout had me sweating like crazy, and burning everywhere. Enjoy!
1st Move: Plie Squat
Start in a plie squat position, with your arms in second position (arms stretched out beside you). Squat up and down through your heels for 50 reps. This is the warmup! This works your inner thighs and booty and your arms.
2nd Move: Pulse Plie Squat
Stay in the lower plie squat position and pulse. You'll do 50 reps of these as well, and believe me, it burns!
3rd Move: Plie Squat Toe Raise
Again, in the lower plie squat position, hold your heels up and pulse again. This is almost exactly the same as the second position but your heels are raised off the ground. 50 reps of this.
4th Move: Plie Squat Stretch
Putting your hands on the ground in a plie squat still, lift your bum up and down stretching your back and your legs. 20 of these.
5th Move: Kneeling to Standing Lunge
Bent over your bent leg with your other leg out behind you, straighten your front leg and your back leg so you're standing. Repeat this for 10 reps.

*Repeat this whole circuit on the other leg*

9th Move: Side to Side Arm Reach
While moving your hips from side to side, reach your arms out to the side as well. This will work your obliques and your arms. You can also slap your hands to the back which will work your triceps. 30 of these.

Are you sore yet?! If you are, you don't have to wonder how Selena Gomez gets her banging body. This workout should take about 30 minutes, and you'll be so sore the next day. I know I was, and I was even sore in muscles I didn't know I had.
