Kourtney Kardashian may have some questionable dieting habits, but her dedication to working out is undeniable.

The 38-year-old reality star recently took a trip to Egypt — and she made sure to fit in time to exercise. Shape spotted a blog post on her app, where she wrote about the moves she does when she's away from home and the gym.

"Exercising is a part of my daily routine. So, even though I like to relax on vacation, getting a workout in is still important to me," she wrote. "Also, working out while traveling really helps me with jet lag and makes starting to work out again when I'm back at home not as difficult."

Here are the moves Kourtney does when she's on vacation.


"While in Egypt, I did 200 chair squats to help keep my hamstrings, glutes, and quads toned. Just pretend you are about to sit on a chair and pop up into standing position while engaging your core," she writes.

Kourtney has the right idea when it comes to squat form. INSIDER previously met with Shawn Arent, the director of the Center for Health and Human Performance at Rutgers University, to show exactly how you can safely and correctly perform a squat.

Speed walking

A power walk may not seem all that hard, but Kourtney incorporates some other exercises to make it more challenging.

"To kick this up a notch, mix in some lunges at the beginning and end of your walk," she wrote. "Since walking — or lunging — on sand provides instability, you'll work that much harder to keep your balance."

Though you'll need to be at the beach to power walk on sand, you can add lunges to your walks wherever you are.


The reality star also throws in some tricep dips to work her arms. This is actually Instagram fitness star Kayla Itsines's favorite arm toning exercise.

Kardashian recommends using your surroundings for this workout, too. "Find a fixed (and strong!) edge — like a tall bathtub or steps — and lower your body up and down with your legs straight out," she wrote. "Keep the move slow and controlled."


Push-ups are not necessarily one of Kardashian's favorite exercises, but you can do them anywhere — and she knows that they're a powerful move for the upper body.

"Classic, old-school push-ups may be the least fun exercise, but they are so effective in toning your upper body and adding definition to your arms," she wrote. "If push-ups are too hard at first, modify the move and anchor with your knees, instead of with your toes."

Whether or not you're going on vacation anytime soon, you can still give these simple, effective moves a try.
