London: Every woman yearns for a figure like Rihanna, who was named as the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine. In a recent interview, the ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker had revealed that she loves to have fun when keeping fit and enjoys mixing up her exercise routine, a leading daily has reported.

The singer’s fitness regime was revealed by her LA-based trainer Harley Pasternak, who said that the 24-year-old usually works out at least three times a week for around 25 minutes. Rihanna starts with 30 minutes of cycling, skipping with a rope, jogging and jumping jacks as part of her cardio routine.

She can do these things in her hotel room or backstage before a show, allowing her to squeeze exercise into her hectic schedule, by adapting them to on-the-spot jogging, for example, and cycling on a stationary bike.

She also does strength training which is a true body transformer, as it firms anything that jiggles, eventually giving one a sexy definition and builds lean muscle which helps boost your metabolism and burn calories.
