Kate Upton’s Trainer Defends Her ‘Porky’ Body

Celebrity trainer David Kirsch is known for lifting, firming, and toning some of the best bodies that appear on the runway, silver screen, and glossy magazine covers. Heidi Klum's flat stomach? Kirsch-ed. Karolina Kurkova's lifted tush? Kirsch-ed. Liv Tyler's everything? Kirsch-ed. The latest addition to the Manhattan-based, nutrition-obsessed trainer's collection of toned clients is none other than Kate Upton, two-time cover girl of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and owner of the most enviable set of boobs we've seen, ever. The two first started working together in August out of Kirsch's Madison Square Club when she wanted some basic body maintenance, and things went into overdrive once it started to get closer to the arctic photo shoot. "I made it very clear to her, I love her curves and I wasn't going to do anything to [make her] skinnier," said the body-conscious Kirsch. "It was about toning her legs, butt, abs, arms, and to really dial into the diet."

Kate's regimen + dietCollapse )

Ugh, I really need to get back on the workout train. Last year I lost a ton of weight between walking to classes and eating lots of fruits/vegetables, but I've gotten so lazy ever since I brought my car to school with me this year.

what exercises can i do at home to get a flat stomach? i'm 110 so that's my only problem area

winniecooper 19th-Feb-2013 08:12 pm (UTC)
anything core, but planks in particular will really work all of your core.
kissoffools 19th-Feb-2013 08:16 pm (UTC)
losing belly fat is way more about what you're eating than exercise.
anuhealani 19th-Feb-2013 08:17 pm (UTC)
Do you need to tone what's there or do you have an extra layer of fat? If it's fat, you need to do more cardio no matter how much core work you already do.

That's my problem area too but unfortunately you can't spot-burn fat. So if I actually get my abdomen looking trim and toned, my upper body looks skeletal. :/
lennoxs 19th-Feb-2013 08:20 pm (UTC)
better diet tbh that's the #1 thing

Try to incorporate more healthy fats into your diet (nuts, vegetable oils, avocado and stuff). It seems counter-intuitive obvs but I'm reading it works everywhere.
myblackass 20th-Feb-2013 03:20 am (UTC)
Abs are all diet. You can do crunches forever but if you diet is off, you'll just have a 6 pack under a layer of fat.

I go to a bootcamp 5-6 days a week. Hardcore! It's so hard, but I love it! I have muscles now! Never thought I would have those.
sweetlilcanuck 19th-Feb-2013 08:11 pm (UTC)
I love taking different kinds of dance classes, plus partnering up with people gets me to work on my shyness and fear of rejection.

/just got out of the jlaw post
artemis_archer 19th-Feb-2013 08:11 pm (UTC)
I just started a Zumba class and I LOVE it. I went to one years ago and didn't stick with it but since then I've discovered how much I love to dance and I'm psyched I found a good class. The hour flew by (usually exercising drags for me) and I was totally spent but felt awesome. Few things can get me out of bed early on a weekend but I might add a Sunday am class just because I love it so much.
buncha_cruncha 19th-Feb-2013 08:13 pm (UTC)
I've heard such good things about Zumba, but I'm afraid of trying it because I have absolutely no rhythm, LOL. Maybe I'll get a DVD first and try it at home where no one can see me embarrass myself.
kissoffools 19th-Feb-2013 08:18 pm (UTC)
There's one girl who goes to my Zumba class who has zero rhythm, but she just boogies along and has a total blast. And everybody seems to have varying degrees of ability to get the different moves, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. :D
artemis_archer 19th-Feb-2013 09:10 pm (UTC)
This is exactly why my sister won't come with me but honestly you wouldn't be alone! Most people are focused on the instructor anyway so no one will really notice but when I do find myself looking around quickly I see plenty of people trying to keep up with the dance moves. I'm impressed when people who don't take easily to dancing stick it out. It's just a lot of fun and a great workout :)
ariesangel404 19th-Feb-2013 08:17 pm (UTC)
I love how quickly it goes by when you have a fun instructor! It's such great cardio.
miss_cassie 19th-Feb-2013 08:11 pm (UTC)
i think im going to get AT my punching bag tonight.

ugh i get married in June, i need to start getting on the fucking ball with this fitness shit.

i cant help it. im addicted to wine, bread, and cheese.
buncha_cruncha 19th-Feb-2013 08:15 pm (UTC)
You sound just like me, lol. I got a wedding in May, starting to freak out about fitness...but the wine, bread and cheese!!!

girl i LOVE my wine, bread and cheese <3
miss_cassie 19th-Feb-2013 08:20 pm (UTC)
theres nothing more glorious than a good pinot noir, bleu/brie, apricot preserves, and a crispy baguette.
simplychristina 19th-Feb-2013 10:30 pm (UTC)
Good bread is one of the best things on earth.
saturdaysinbed 19th-Feb-2013 08:12 pm (UTC)
basic she may be but porky she is not
hannahgrace456 19th-Feb-2013 08:13 pm (UTC)
I used to be a complete gym rat but since coming to school I NEVER work out. I do a lot more than I did before though, so that's good. I've been losing a lot of weight but I think that's just from stress and not eating.
swissbeauty23 19th-Feb-2013 08:13 pm (UTC)
Damn if she's "porky", I must be a whale...
mydogfred 19th-Feb-2013 08:20 pm (UTC)

jasmin_x3 19th-Feb-2013 08:13 pm (UTC)
omg just ate a pan dulce. but i'm going on vacation in like 50 days so I gotta step it up cuz I wanna look FAB
ashtraysoul 19th-Feb-2013 08:13 pm (UTC)
I love walking and I think I'm fairly fast (15 miles in 2 hours last Sunday) and don't feel like shit when I'm done, so I feel running would be the next logical step, especially as I'm not really looking to bulk up, but I'm terrible at breathing steadily so I'm always panting after two minutes
shortliljackers 19th-Feb-2013 09:04 pm (UTC)
15 miles in 2 hours walking?

wow, i ran 10 miles in a little over 2 hours a couple weeks ago, so you're walking really fast...that's like an 8 minute pace!
pseudovirus 20th-Feb-2013 09:07 am (UTC)
do intervals of walking/jogging until you can eventually jog longer than you walk and then you're just jogging/running

C2FKfree is a good app that teaches you how to do that imo.
ediesedgwick 20th-Feb-2013 06:20 pm (UTC)
you walk at 7.5 mph?
anuhealani 19th-Feb-2013 08:14 pm (UTC)
I did step aerobics at home for about 10 years, but now I do very high-intensity Zumba/hip hop/kickbox-dance cardio classes. I aim for 8 hours a week but rarely get that many. I usually manage no fewer than 4.

I'm in good cardiovascular shape but honestly, weight loss is at least 80% down to diet and I just cannot give up that damned bread.
swissbeauty23 19th-Feb-2013 08:15 pm (UTC)

if i cut out carbs i feel like i'd lose a lot of weight, but i can't. love carbs WAY too much.
winniecooper 19th-Feb-2013 08:18 pm (UTC)
ugh yeah i lost so much weight when i cut out wheat products, but i love my bread too much.
anuhealani 19th-Feb-2013 08:19 pm (UTC)
They're the worst. I actually managed to cut out all carbs except beans and green veggies for a few months last year, and I lost about 10 pounds from that alone. But I can never keep it up. :(
kissoffools 19th-Feb-2013 08:29 pm (UTC)
i just recently gave up bread! it's been tough, but i kind of figure... realistically, i can lose the weight i need to and be down to my goal in five months. do i really think that i can't live without bread for five measly months, when it's going to help me attain something that's so important to me? it's just food. it's not the end of the world.

that's the self-talk i had to do to get myself off it, and so far it's been working really well and i don't miss it, really. but i mean, that's just me! everybody's different and that might not work for others/you at all.
swissbeauty23 19th-Feb-2013 08:14 pm (UTC)
I love pilates, yoga and I just started getting into running, but I've been slacking on that lately.

I don't think I'll ever have a flat stomach unless I starve myself. It's genetic partly. My sister is an NCAA I runner who works out like crazy and eats healthy and still has a bit of belly.
skankattack 19th-Feb-2013 08:22 pm (UTC)

She's not fat. She's also not curvy. Big boobs does not = curvy.
swissbeauty23 19th-Feb-2013 08:16 pm (UTC)
she's got some curve in her thighs but she is pretty square around the waist area yeah
joliebelle 19th-Feb-2013 08:45 pm (UTC)
vicvinegar 19th-Feb-2013 10:38 pm (UTC)
mte where is this curvy coming from...she has no defined waist or butt therefore theres no reason to call her curvy
