Beyonce is known for several reasons, including her high-energy songs, fantastic acting and performing, and most definitely for her bootylicious body. The singer has always had curves and legs that inspire me to get my booty into the gym. When I am not really feeling like doing a workout, I can just blast one of her songs on my iPod and motivation instantly strikes.
So how does this gorgeous woman stay in such great shape? It takes a lot of dedication for Beyonce to look the way she does. When she is getting ready to go on tour, she spends nine hours every day working on the choreography for her shows while wearing 5-inch stilettos. She goes to the gym five times a week with her personal trainer. Like I said, the girl is definitely motivated.
If you are like me, you are wondering how she stays so motivated. Beyonce has a painting of an Oscar award at her gym so she can literally run towards one of her many goals.
“I look at it, and I’m OK, I have to stay in shape,” Beyonce said.
Beyonce created a workout for Self Magazine that corresponds with the soundtrack of her new CD, 4, which was released on June 28, 2011. Beyonce suggests warming up with a 15-minute jog or run to her new songs, Best Thing I Never Had, End of Time, Countdown, and Run the World (Girls). Next, the lovely singer recommends building up your legs with a series of 100 squats and 100 lunges to give you legs that are as powerful and sexy as her own. You can listen to her song Party while doing this phase of the workout. She also says that Rather Die Young is a good song to use for working out your arms using standard yoga moves, Downward Dog and Upward Dog. By the end of the CD, you are sure to be feeling it, so take a minute to relax and stretch your muscles during the slower song, 1 + 1.
This workout is sure to get your body looking as bootylicious as Beyonce’s in no time. Or, if you want to stick to your normal workouts, you can still spice up your time at the gym by downloading Beyonce’s new CD 4 on iTunes today!
