Although she may be best known for her supercharged, drama infused love life – with a home video or two to boot – Kim Kardashian would rank pretty high up on the “hottest bodies on the planet” list.

Her voluptuous hourglass figure, with a perfectly toned (and, as we got proof on her reality show, totally all naturel) booty are definitely desire and attention worthy.

So, how has Kim K. achieved this coveted fit look and how does she maintain it?

Here are some secrets of her workout and lifestyle regime that, obviously, guarantee some fabulous results.

Her Workout Secrets

Exercise 1: Side Lunge Wood Chop

Stand with feet hip-width apart and hold a weighted ball next to your right ear, with your elbows bent.

Step out to the left and lower into a lunge as you straighten your arms out and arc the ball around so it’s outside of your left ankle.

Bring your arms back up to the starting position, as you step right foot next to left.

Repeat this exercise 6 to 15 times to the left side and then switch sides and repeat to the right to complete the set.

Exercise 2: Wide Ball Squat

Stand with your feet wide apart, toes turned out slightly, and hold a weighted ball in both hands in front of your chest.

Lower into a low squat, sinking your booty down and touch the ball to the ground between your heels.

Rise up as you lift the ball over your head, keeping arms straight until they even out with your ears. If you’re doing this correctly, when you look up, you should not see the ball, as it should be slightly behind you.

Keep your weight centered in your heels and squeeze your booty tight as you rise up.

Repeat this exercise 6 to 15 times.

Exercise 3: Rebound Rotation

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, straighten your torso and hold a weighted ball about one ball’s width from your chest, with your elbows out.

Press against the ball – you should feel your chest muscles contracting. Keep squeezing as you rotate from side to side, as if you were trying to hit something with your elbows. Pull your belly button in tight each time you pass through the center.

Repeat this exercise 6 to 15 times, as one twist to each side counts as one rep. Once finished, repeat the round, this time extending your arms in from of your chest as you rotate.

Exercise 4: Ball Push-Up

Get into the push-up position on your hands and toes (or knees, if that is your preference).

Place a weighted ball on the ground a few inches outside of your left shoulder and place your left hand on ball.

Do 6 to 10 push-ups and then switch ball to the right side to complete the set.
To target your triceps, place the ball under your shoulder and tuck your elbow to the side as you lower into the push-up.

Exercise 5: Bus Driver

Sit with your knees bent and closed together, feet flat and hold a weighted ball in front of you.

Lean back slightly and rest lightly on your heels or lift your feet completely.

Rotate from side to side, touching the ball to the floor each time, while turning your head to look where you’re touching.

Repeat this exercise 6 to 15 times, as one rotation to each side counts as one rep.

Exercise 6: Skater’s Lunge with Kickback

Hold a dumbbell in each hand and stand with your feet hip-width apart. Bend over from your hips into about 45 degrees and tuck your arms at sides, elbows bent and palms facing each other.

Assuming you’re facing 12 on a clock face, step your left foot back to 7 and lower into a lunge, with your right knee aligned over ankle and back. Your back leg should be almost straight. At the same time, straighten your left arm behind you. Return to the starting position and repeat the exercise with your right leg (stepping back to 5) and arm.

Repeat the exercise 6 to 15 times.

Exercise 7: Squat, Curl, Governor Press

Hold a dumbbell in each hand at the sides, palms facing body, and stand with your feet hip-width apart. Lower into a deep squat, as if you were going to place the weights on the ground.

Rise up and curl the dumbbells toward your shoulders, turning your palms to face the body. Extend your arms up, turning your palms to face forward. Lower arms to shoulders, then sides, and repeat this 6 to 15 times.

Kim K.’s Diet Secrets 101

Being a real girl (and a human, for that matter), Kim has been known to indulge in her cravings for fast food deliciousness such as burgers, fries, all kinds of cookies and the ultimate go-to – ice cream.

She loves being in fantastic shape and in order to achieve that, she knows that a rigorous workout regime does not mean much, without a complimenting diet to boot.

With a help of a nutritionist, Kim discovered that a low in fat, high in fiber macrobiotic diet does wonders for her body and makes her feel great, so her plate staples now include, veggie burgers, tofu, soy cheese and quinoa.

She’s still no stranger to a yummy bad-for-me-but-I-oh-so-must-have-it treat, though she tries to keep them at check.

A recent display of Kim’s ultra-toned and naughtily vivacious curves has been attributed to what she and her friends call, a “sex diet.”

As happy and fulfilled as she seems with her current boyfriend, Kanye West, Kim seems to be reaping the benefits of their passion sessions, as the results are quite stunning and inspiring.

It is always important to consult your physician before starting an exercise program. This is particularly true if any of the following apply to your current medical condition:

  • chest pain or pain in the neck and/or arm
  • shortness of breath
  • a diagnosed heart condition
  • joint and/or bone problems
  • currently taking cardiac and/or blood pressure medications
  • have not previously been physically active
  • dizziness
