Kim Kardashian cranks up her StairMaster workout with this simple, yet killer modification

Keeping up with Kim Kardashian is always difficult — especially at the gym! The reality star has long been a proponent of working out, and ever since she began training with Melissa Alcantara, she’s been cataloging their intense — and ever-changing — fitness sessions on Instagram.

On Monday, April 1, the 38-year-old KKW Beauty founder posted an Instagram Story boomerang that showed her feet repeatedly climbing a StairMaster. But there was a twist: Around the makeup mogul’s black yoga pants-clad thighs was a bright green resistance band. A further look showed that there were also weights strapped around both her ankles. “As if the stair master isn’t bad enough” she wrote over the photo, adding an eye rolling emoji.

Previously, the mom of three with husband Kanye West has posted videos of her shoulders, abs and cardio days with Alcantara. One Instagram Story about her quad workouts showed Kardashian doing close-stance leg presses, quad squats and dynamic jump squats at 6 a.m. “In the morning she’s up, she’s with it, she knows what’s gonna happen and it’s literally obviously the first thing she does in the day, and the rest of her day just goes smoothly,” Alcantara told Us in January of the star’s preference for pre-dawn workouts.

This was me leaving a dinner with my high school friends right after we left our 20 year high school reunion! I had planned this for about a year and kept checking with my friends to make sure they wouldn’t flake! I loved high school and loved seeing so many of the smart gorgeous girls I went to high school with! So proud of everyone and all they have achieved! Such a fun night and so glad I reconnected with some people I haven’t seen in forever! #Marymount

#ad Little update for you guys. I’m on Day 9 of my Shake It Baby program from @flattummyco and I’m actually feeling so good. We had a massive Christmas this year and between my Mom's party, Christmas and New Years… I felt like it was impossible to fit in my regular work outs and eat healthy. But this program is giving me a kick in the right direction that I need. These meal replacement shakes are so good and it’s helping me get my tummy back to flat in the new year. The results I’m seeing and feeling are amazing and I’m so excited for the next few weeks. Because they’re all about getting women back on track… they’ve got a 20% off sale going on right now if you want to start 2018 off right… trust me, you’re going to want to check them out.

While Kardashian had previously focused on the number on the scale, she started doing more strength training in 2017 about a year and half after giving birth to son Saint so she could tone her muscles while keeping her curves, a source told Us at the time. To help her with the task, she found bodybuilder Alcantara on Instagram and reached out to see if she would train her! As Kardashian has explained, “She had an amazing transformation after she had a baby.”

Diclegis 

"#Ad #DYK 4 million babies are born each year in the US. That means a lot of my US followers are mommies2B who could have morning sickness like I did! I want to share what helped me: Diclegis® (doxylamine succinate/pyridoxine HCl), the only FDA-approved medication for morning sickness when diet & lifestyle changes fail. My doctor assured me that it’s safe & effective for mom & baby. It’s also easy to recognize - it has the cutest pregnant lady on it! #DontSufferinSilence you’re not alone! If you have morning sickness, ask your healthcare provider if #Diclegis is right for you. The most common side effect of Diclegis is drowsiness. Diclegis.com US Residents Only Diclegis is a prescription medicine used to treat nausea & vomiting of pregnancy in women who haven’t improved with change in diet or other non-medicine treatments. Limitation of Use: Diclegis hasn’t been studied in women with hyperemesis gravidarum. Important Safety Information Don’t take Diclegis if you’re allergic to any of the ingredients in Diclegis. You should also not take Diclegis in combination with medicines called monoamine oxidase inhibitors, as these medicines can intensify & prolong the adverse CNS effects of Diclegis. Don’t drive, operate heavy machinery or other activities that need your full attention unless your healthcare provider says that you may do so. Don’t drink alcohol or take other central nervous system depressants such as cough & cold medicines, certain pain medicines & medicines that help you sleep while you take Diclegis. Severe drowsiness can happen or become worse causing falls or accidents. It is not known if Diclegis is safe & effective in children under 18 years of age. Keep Diclegis & all medicines out of the reach of children. Tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you’re breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. Diclegis can pass into your breast milk & may harm your baby. You shouldn’t breastfeed while using Diclegis. Additional safety information can be found at DiclegisImportantSafetyinfo.com.
