The three-time Sports Illustrated model has landed covers on magazines like Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Vanity Fair, and countless more due to stunning looks combined with her extremely curvaceous, yet fit, body.
The exercise of choice today was an offset deficit reverse lunge into a single-leg Romanian deadlift with a kettlebell. If you’re looking for a move that targets both your glutes and legs in a single move, this is the one you should consider adding to your routine.

A few weeks ago she also nailed a set of slide-through lunges. This variation also focuses on your hips as well, but gives more attention to your hips by not returning to the starting position of the exercise.

Kate Upton (@kateupton) crushes a set of “slide-through lunges", which essentially combines a sliding reverse lunge and a forward lunge into one movement. Start by sliding backwards into a reverse lunge, focusing on taking a slightly longer stride to make the movement more hip-dominant with greater emphasis on the glutes. Then rather than returning to the starting position, slide all the way through into a forward lunge, here with a slightly shorter stride to make the movement more knee-dominant. Repeat in that fashion for 4-6 reps of each, making sure to keep a slow and controlled tempo. While lunges are ostensibly a unilateral exercise, this version actually works both legs at the same while also jacking the heart rate up like crazy. Kate makes these look easy because she’s a badass, but it’s actually a very advanced exercise, so make sure you’ve mastered sliding reverse lunges first, and also hold onto something for balance until you’re comfortable.
Being a supermodel clearly isn’t all fun and games, and requires a pretty steady amount of work to obtain their goddess-like bodies.
