    Default Minka Kelly wins Gold Gym's Hottest Body in Hollywood award

    How to Get Minka Kelly's Killer Body
    June 9, 2011 | 4:41pm

    When it comes to stars with pictue-perfect figures, the list could go on forever. But for Us Weekly and Gold's Gym's 2nd Annual Hollywood's Hottest Bodies Awards, Us readers voted Minka Kelly as having the hottest bod in tinseltown. (The Roommate star beat out sexy sirens Jennifer Aniston and Blake Lively!)

    The 30-year-old actress, who is currently filming the new Charlie's Angels movie, had to take martial arts classes to prep for the role. But even before being cast, Kelly has been in great shape.

    Us enlisted the help of Gold's Gym Celebrity Trainer Ramona Braganza to see what it takes to get the star's lean and athletic figure.

    "It's essential to combine a healthy diet with exercise. Eating regularly and staying hydrated throughout the day keeps your metabolism cranking," says Braganza, who recommends eating three meals and two snacks daily. "Make sure your meals and snacks include lean proteins, complex carbs, plenty of fruits and vegetables, and lots of good fats."

    Braganza stresses that although a good workout is important, eating right is 50 percent of the equation. Check out the moves below to sculpt your body in all the right places.


    The Move: Curtsies with Weights

    Tip: Any move that involves stepping across your body will target more than just the main muscle groups in your legs.

    Instructions: Stand with feet hip-width apart and hold a 5-lb dumbbell in each hand by your sides. Step back on a diagonal with your right leg as you bend your left knee, reaching arms to the ground with the dumbbells. Try to keep your back leg straight in a lunge and drop your butt down as far as possible. Return to standing. Repeat on same side.

    Reps: 10 on each side, then switch legs. Repeat 2-3 times.


    The Move: Plank with a Twist

    Tip: "To achieve Minka's flat abs and small waist, remember to train your entire core, including your obliques," says Braganza.

    Instructions: Planks are the best way to take your ab workout to the next level. While you're in plank position (on your toes and forearms, your body in a straight line), add in a twist. Drop your right hip to the ground, then your left.

    Reps: Keep alternating for 10 reps, rest, then repeat 2-3 times.


    The Move: Deadlifts

    Tip: "Minka's butt has definition, which can be achieved by doing exercises that target hamstrings along with glutes," says Braganza.

    Instructions: Stand with feet hip-width apart and hold a pair of 10-lb dumbbells against your thighs. Keeping your back straight and your knees slightly bent, hinge forward and lower the weights. Lower only as far as you comfortably can, then as you squeeze your glutes, raise the dumbbells back to starting position.

    Reps: 2-3 sets of 20.
