While many celebs are open about their workout and fitness info, others, like Katy Perry, usually keep it hidden under lock and key. That's why we were so excited when she posted a pretty badass workout video over the weekend during Coachella.
If you're familiar with plyometric workouts, you'll recognize the exercise that Perry is absolutely killing as the speed skater, which works your hamstrings, quads and glutes — as well as gets your heart rate up.
If you're scratching your head and thinking "plyo-what?", allow us to clue you in. Basically, plyometric exercises are where you're jumping or stretching a muscle and contracting it again quickly. Athletes use plyometrics to increase their speed, jump heights, etc. It's a great opportunity to increase your power and get in some cardio and strength training at the same time.
Check out our Katy-Perry inspired plyometrics workout below to work out like a pop star. Do as many reps of each exercise as you can for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds before moving onto the next exercise. Repeat the sequence 3-5 times depending on your fitness level.
Work your entire lower body with this explosive exercise. Try to drive your weight through your inside foot when jumping to the other side; if you're not quite on Perry's level yet, it's OK to let your outside foot hit the floor for balance. Need more details? Click here.
Another good booty burner, the squat jump will test your hamstrings, glutes and quads. Try to jump as high as you can throughout the entire 20 seconds. If you're looking for an extra challenge, add in a 180º twist so that when you land, you're facing the opposite direction you started from. Click here for more info on the squat jump.
You'll feel this one mainly in your lower body, but your arms will start to feel it eventually, too. Really try to pull strength from your core, keeping it tight and stable throughout the entire 20 seconds. Click here for more details.
Similar to the plank jack, for best results, you'll want to keep your abs engaged during this exercise. This full-body plyometric move is no joke! For more info one the move, click here.
Remember to repeat the series 3-5 more times for a full Tabata workout. Add it to your exercise routine 3-5 times per week and you'll be seeing those Katy Perry gains in no time.
