Kelly Ripa's Workout Routine
Kelly Ripa Has Been Doing the Same Workout For 13 Years — and It's No Secret Why
Kelly's Go-To Core Exercise
When we chatted with Kaiser in 2018, we couldn't resist asking her about Ripa's core workouts, and the trainer graciously shared her favorite ab exercise with us. Below is a step-by-step look at how to do it at home:
- Start in a plank position with your legs balanced on top of a stability ball. The ball should be somewhere between your thighs and your calves. "The higher the ball is on your body — the closer it is to the hips — the easier the exercise is," Kaiser added.
- Keeping your legs straight, tap your right foot down on the floor and bring it back up on the ball. Do the same with your left foot, and that counts as one rep.
- Do 10 reps. Repeat for three sets.
Kaiser admitted that the sequence is "very hard," which explains why Ripa has such a strong core. "You have to try not to let your hips or shoulders move. You want to keep everything as still as possible," she said. (BRB, buying an exercise ball.)
