Kate Upton, as we have well-chronicled here on BroBible.com, is a big fan of working out. Or, at the very least, posting videos to her Instagram account of herself working out. So I guess because social media is how most celebrity jobs are parsed out now Upton is featured on the cover of this month’s issue of Shape magazine.
In her cover story the still only 25-year-old Upton talks a little bit about her new movie, The Layover with her potential sister-in-law Alexandra Daddario, which is in theaters now (no, really it is, go check the listings). Upton also admits that some of her favorite things are going out to dinner, drinking wine, and eating french fries and chocolate. Oh yeah, she also talks about exercise and weight training because she’s an expert on it now or something…I don’t know.
Here’s how the article starts…
Kate Upton prides herself on being a badass. The 25-year-old model and actress can push a sled with 500-pound weights across the floor, no problem, and does hip thrusts with a 200-pound bar across her lap. (She’s always a source of gymspo.) “Here I am bragging,” she says with a laugh as she describes her fitness feats. “But it’s exciting, challenging, and empowering to see what I can do.”
Upton also shared a little bit about her eating habits…
“I eat a lot of protein like chicken and tons of greens. I’m like a female Popeye: I eat so much spinach that it’s insane. I love it with a little bit of cheese drizzled on it – it’s one of my favorites. I always have breakfast because I can’t do a hard workout if I don’t eat. I usually have eggs and spinach beforehand or an omelet with a bunch of veggies in it and maybe a little feta. If I’m at the gym acting like a badass lifting all those weights, it would be pretty embarrassing if I fainted.”
That it would. So there you have it. A little taste of how Kate Upton stays in good enough shape to have landed yet another Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover this year (even if she was a diva…allegedly).
Naturally, because no article featuring Kate Upton would be complete without pictures, Shape magazine took a bunch of them and I have to say, they turned out very well.
