List of Kpop Workouts (and diets) that Aren’t Too Insane to Try At Home

Hi everyone! So we all have those days when we feel hungry, sleepy, and highly overweight, and looking at Korean idols, actors, and models does NOT make us feel any better. SOOOOOOOO, I’ve decided to make a list of these idol’s workouts (and diet tips) that I’ve heard about that seem safe and reasonable for you to try for when you have those times.

It’s hard to find guy’s workouts and diets that aren’t well… INSANE. So for guys I’d recommend…. Lol, who’s highly overweight? (ME) If you want the advice still… I’d say just do what Kahi does, leisure exercise, jogging, tennis, swimming, biking and lifting. Also, try not to eat super close to bedtime and drink A LOT of water, eat salads before large meals, and thin soups after. Yeah.

Nana (Workout)

5f777f8d8289d6c4b4bf8bdda2910bc1For idol Nana, staying in shape is very important. In an interview with Elle, she revealed how she keep in shape. Every night, she does 100 push ups and squats, and she walks up the stairs 2 at a time. 






Kahi (Workout & Diet Tip)

Kahi does not enjoy lounging around, so she does a variety of leisure sports such as biking, riding horses, jogging and yoga to stay in shape. Also, she admits that she eats a lot, seven meals a day to be exact. However, these meals consist of healthy foods as you can observe below (fruits, boiled eggs, leafy vegetables, rice, radishes, and meat).kahi 37648_kahi-eating-a-delicious-lunch





Sooyoung (Workout)



Sooyoung was blessed with a high metabolism to stay thin, but she still exercises to keep her legs looking nice and in shape. She does a few exercises that involve stretching the legs and increasing blood flow to the legs. Some of the exercises are done while sitting. To increase blood flow to your ankle, hold your ankle in your lap and rotate your ankle with your hand for about 10 seconds each. To stretch your legs, do the “girls bring the boys out” move from “The Boys” video on each leg and hold for 30 seconds each. To strengthen your legs, do the exercise below.


  1. 458302Sit.
  2. Sit up straight.
  3. Lift your feet up so that your ankles are parallel to your hips.
  4. Hold them there for 5 seconds.
  5. Lower your feet to the floor and repeat.

For pretty arms…

  1. 458303Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart
  2. Spread your arms wide and flex your hands
  3. Turn your arms clockwise for four counts and bend your knees at the same time
  4. Swoop your arms so that they extend directly in front of you
  5. Continue the movement for the fifth, sixth and seventh count
  6. Bring your arms in towards your body and stretch them out as you jump on the eighth count.
  7. 20 reps, 3 sets

Yuri (Workout & Diet Tip)korea-snsd-yuri

Yuri’s abs have to be the most recognizable characteristics about her body, and I know the workout she does to get them. 600. I repeat, 600 sit-ups. Right?

iCS3ta6nz7MyARidiculous sounding, but less ridiculous than sitting at home and watching televisions for the 30 minutes you could be using to workout. Yup. However, I’ve heard that sit-ups aren’t that good for your spine so I’d probably do 600-800 crunches instead. ALSO… Yuri drinks a mixture of yam juice, apple juice, and milk every morning. There.

Tiffany and Jessica (Workout)20120520_snsd_tiffany_jessica_chanel_3

I really do NOT want to explain this…

SO here.

Do Tiffany’s 3 times a day and Jessica’s 9.

Tiffany’s literally takes a minute. Jessica’s takes about… hmm.. Three minutes?


Hyunyoung (Workout & Diet Tip)Cho Hyun Young

After debut, netizens were quick to comment on how chubby Hyunyoung appeared on screen 😦 , however, she lost 17.5 pounds (8 kg) through… Hula hooping and jump roping (skipping rope). Oh my god. And it’s so logical, too. The hula hooping shapes your obliques very nicely and jumping rope burns from about 600-1000 calories per hour. Try it. TRY IT. Also, this unnie does not eat four hours before sleeping. And water. Many many water.

Thanks for viewing my list, and I’m sorry I couldn’t find any boy workouts 😦 So duh sorrow… Okay byes!
