It didn’t happen over night.

Karrueche Tran’s booty, that is. Back in 2017, she shared a before and after picture of her bum on Instagram, lauding the benefits of drinking more water, eating veggies and working out for perking up her backside, ridding her of a “lil sad booty.”

And she’s kept up the hard work more than a year later. The results have been so approved of (particularly by her beau Victor Cruz) that she decided to fill fans in on the workouts she does to blast her booty.

The star posted video to her YouTube channel earlier this month of her workout with trainer Mario. They did a Booty Blast workout (part I by the way) that involved the use of resistance bands. The 20-minute workout, which she condensed to five minutes to show people how to get it done, involved lateral walks, squats and knee abductions with bands around her feet and above her knee, as well as fire hydrants and knee tucks with a kickback with the band above her knees. Our legs hurt when it was all with and all we were doing is watching.


The workout is a great one for people to try who are are looking to integrate more resistance training into their exercise regimens. And pushing the benefits of naturally lifting one’s backside is important at a time when everyone is going for the fastest options based on what stars and influencers are doing. But that’s never been Tran’s way of doing things.

“I have a young female fan base, or followers, so I try to be as real and genuine as possible,” Tran said last year about not letting people pressure her into getting work done. “I wanted to get my boobs done before, but then I was like, ‘No.’ I haven’t because, for what? We’re not perfect, you don’t need to be perfect. This is the way God created us. And for some reason, there is this perception online that we have to be a certain way and people aren’t accepting of who they are and what they look like. I think it’s important, especially when you have a platform, to let girls know that you don’t need to do the botox and the this and the that. Do what you want with your own body, but you have to portray a realistic image, otherwise you’re just messing up these girls’ heads and that is what social media’s kind of doing.”
