All American hottie, Kate Upton is the current “it” pin-up for fetishized curves (that word makes my skin scrawl) and self-congratulatatory dudes who think they deserve high-fives for masturbating to someone ever so slightly larger than the typical model.
Putting aside the fact that it’s absolutely outrageous that Kate Upton’s traditionally smoking figure is considered out of the norm, she really does have it going on. She’s kind of a model of all trades–this babe does fashion, swimsuits, a David Yurman jewelry campaign, weird Terry Richardson cheesecake…the works. So, obviously everybody wants to know how they too can have Kate Upton’s bod. Short of being born Kate Upton, I guess you can listen to her trainer David Kirsch who has devised an exercise regimen to achieve fit and toned mainstream acceptability without sacrificing her boobies.
Though Kirsch has been training Upton for a minute, as of late he’s been working with the most Sports Illustrated cover girl looking model to ever be on both Vogue and Sports Illustrated covers to prepare her for role alongside Cameron Diaz in upcoming feature, The Other Woman(2014). Here’s what he had to say about training the body the world can’t stop appraising:
“I know and respect her body and her desire to maintain her shape. I love curves and I think as someone who is blessed with that as she is, it is my responsibility and my goal to tighten and get rid of the excess,”
The word “tighten” makes me think of that scene from Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up(2007) where the producer’s on that E! show tell Katherine Heigl that they can’t legally ask her to lose weight.
“Kate is the all-American epitome of the gorgeous curvy; she is the Marilyn Monroe of the 21st century. She is beautiful, she is accessible, she is sweet, she’s got curves, she’s got good boobs and she is every guy and girl’s dream… mostly.”
Every single sex symbol is referred to as the Marilyn Monroe of today. It’s getting grating. Anyway, I’d say she’s more of a Jayne Mansfield of the 21st century only Upton is not an actress and is also a completely different person.
“I worked with her seven days a week for five weeks to get her ready for the shooting. She was looking the best she has ever looked, so now when she is a little off, she knows what she has got to do,”
Having your body be your job seems really freaking hard.
“I don’t believe in a lot of weights and I don’t use more than five pound dumbbells or 6-8 pound medicine ball. I do a lot of bands or ankle weights and high reps; she knows that I will always conveniently tell her to do more. (It’s about) keeping the reps high and the weight low.”
He doesn’t “believe in a lot of weights” like weights over 8 pounds are God or wizards or the death penalty.
Okay friends, so if you want to workout like Kate Upton does when she’s specifically trying to be camera-ready and get paid the big bucks, you should have a trainer to work with you day in and day out for over a month.
