Katy Perry Thursday Workout Routine

For each exercise, Katy Perry would do 4 sets of 20 reps. She would do it in a nonstop circuit. This means do exercise #2 for 20 reps, then immediately go into exercise #3 for 20 reps. Go all the way, until you’ve completed each exercise in the circuit. Then, do the entire circuit 4 more times. Don’t rest between sets, but do rest for 1 minute after you do a circuit (1 set of each exercise).

Katy Perry does all sorts of ab exercises to sculpt her abs. Harley Pasternack has her work different ab muscles each day, mostly switching between upper abs, lower abs and obliques.

The abdominal twists work both her upper abs and obliques, due to the rotations involved. Harley says:

It’s not just about crunch, crunch, crunch. It’s about working her body up and down and side to side and rotation. We train all three of her rectus adbominis, her obliques and her corset muscle to make sure that her abs are not just tight and strong, but small.

Katy Perry’s trainer, Harley Pasternak, talks about working with the star singer:

Katy’s great. Katy is funny. Katy’s energetic. She’s a pleasure to workout with. She’s actually very funny. She’s not someone, I think, who loves to naturally workout. But, she loves how it makes her feel, and she’s pretty athletic.

The Katy Perry diet plan involves eating simple recipes with 5 ingredients that take 5 minutes to make. Along with her diet, the 5-Factor workouts were the key to her success. Celebrity trainer Harley Pasternack preaches about his 5-Factor workout, where you only need to do 5 simple circuits a day. Harley Pasternack says each circuit takes about 5 minutes (your cardio and strength training sessions can go longer if you wish):

We do 20 repetitions of each upper body, lower body, and abs and cycle through those three exercises non-stop, repeating that circuit four times. Each day of the week she would come in and we’d do different body parts.

The Katy Perry workout succeeds in its simplicity. You only have to do a few minutes of cardio, followed by a few targeted body exercises. These exercises vary by body part, so that some muscles are being used while others are resting. Quickly varying what body part you work, minimizing rest between sets, and doing cardio (before and after) are the keys. These keys help to make the Katy Perry workout short, but very successful.
