Sports Il­lus­trated model Kate Up­ton has never been a weights kind of girl – but that’s only be­cause she wasn’t ed­u­cated on just how dra­mat­i­cally strength train­ing can change your body. But the model, 25, re­luc­tantly gave it a go on her trainer Ben Bruno’s in­sis­tence, and nowa­days, hip thrusts, sled pulls and dead­lifts are an in­te­gral part of her work­outs. “When I started train­ing with him, he would say, ‘Let’s put 500 pounds on the sled’, and I would im­me­di­ately say, ‘I can’t do that,’” she ad­mits.

“Now my at­ti­tude has changed com­pletely, and I’m al­ways push­ing my­self to do more.”

And Kate, who reg­u­larly posts In­sta­gram videos of her weight-train­ing ses­sions, says that lean­ing more on the weights and less on the tra­di­tional forms of car­dio has re­shaped her body.

“To me, ex­er­cise is about work­ing re­ally hard in the gym to be healthy and feel good and con­fi­dent about my body,” she says. “Weight train­ing helps me do that the best. Lift­ing heavy weights leans you out if you do it the cor­rect way.”
