Luckily for our readers, the expert herself has shared a few tips and tricks to get the star body you desire:
Jennifer Lopez’s Butt & Legs
To achieve J. Lo’s best assets, start with the Bulgarian Split Squat. First, place your right foot behind you, resting it on a step or low bench, then step your left foot forward into a lunge position. Next, holding hand weights in each hand, squat or lunge down until your hips are at the height of your left knee. Perform 12 reps for 3 sets on each leg.
The side plank move is a great way to work out your core. Start by lying down on your right side with your elbow stacked under your shoulder. Next, lift your body off the floor and extend your top leg up toward the ceiling. If you want an extra challenge, perform the side plank using your hand instead of your elbow.
Jennifer Aniston's Arms
Performing hi-pulls for the upper back help to tone your shoulder and arm muscles. To start off, stand with your feet together while holding a hand weight in each hand. Next, pull the hand weights up to your chest and then slightly back, keeping your wrist, elbow and shoulder all parallel to the floor.
