Jennifer Lopez’s Jaw-dropping Body Features – Height, Weight and Body Measurements
Jennifer Lopez has an average height of about 5 feet 5 inches (1.65m) and weighs around 59kg, a perfect combination for a killer body. To further highlight her outstanding features, she sports body measurements of 34-26-38 inches. When you add the figures together, a perfect ensemble is what you will get and that’s what J-Lo is packing, even in her 50s. Little wonder how she has won several awards and mentions as one of the sexiest women in the world.
Jennifer Lopez’s Height Compared To Some Known Celebrities
The Latino singer is 5 feet 5 inches tall which translates to about 1.65m. She has an average height which is a perfect fit for her body structure. Compared to other celebrities like Beyonce who is 1.69m tall and Rihanna who is 1.73m, she might be seen as a little petite.
But she is taller than some celebrities like Shakira and Nicki Minaj who are both 1.57m tall, Arianna Grande who is 1.53m tall, Cardi B who is 1.6m tall and Kim Kardashian who is 1.59m tall.
For some celebrities who are considered short, it isn’t much of a problem as there are so many “sinfully high” and gorgeous stilettos that can catapult them to their desired height. While the highest normal heels might not take her up to meet the likes of Dwayne Johnson at his 1.96 m height, Jennifer Lopez’s height has never posed a barrier in her career or personal life.
What is J-Lo’s Go-To Diet And Workout Routine That Got Her The Dream Body?
From all indications, J-lo understands that to keep fit and maintain her perfect body shape, she needs a thorough workout plan which incorporates exercises and a good nutrition plan. In her words, “you got to work out, you got to watch what you eat”.
She has a regular workout routine which she has been very disciplined about following. She trains four to five times a week, concentrating on different body parts for each session. According to her trainer, Dodd Romero, her typical routine includes:
Fifty hanging ab raises
Fifty rope crunches
Fifty incline sit-ups with a 45-pound plate
She does everything in the first set but with 35 reps
Repetition of step one with 21 reps
Another incredible thing about her workout routine is that she doesn’t take any break between each set. When she isn’t focusing on the abs, she works on her legs which involves 5 sets of supported lunges with dumbbells into weighted rope crunches, weighted leg presses into calf raises, single dumbbell sumo squats into hanging leg raises, weighted hips thrusts into calf raises and seated leg extensions into weighted lying leg curls.
With her other trainer – David Kirsch – she does a special workout for her butt which he calls “platypus walk”. She also does the “spiderman push-ups” for her arms.
The talented actress who isn’t daunted by any challenge when it involves tasking her body had to take up pole dancing for her role as a stripper in Hustlers. She admits having lots of respect for people who do pole because of how difficult it is. She reveals that it’s like acrobatic and working for different muscle groups.
What We Know About Her Diet Plan
For her diet, she has a well-thought-out all-organic diet. She eats fresh food which is high on quality protein and nutrient-dense. She stays away from processed foods and concentrates on getting her nutrients from whole sources like white meat, turkey, egg whites, chicken breast, grass-fed beef, and healthy fats from sea bass or salmon.
J-lo and her former partner Alex Rodriguez sometimes used to challenge themselves to a no-carb challenge but when they aren’t, she enjoys complex starch like sweet potatoes, oatmeal with fresh berries, brown rice, rice bread, and quinoa. She allows herself a handful of nut per day and treats herself to one cheat day per week which includes her guilty pleasure – chocolate chip cookie.
She sometimes does a no sugar diet when she chooses to be hyper-regimented. For fluids, she stays away from caffeine and alcohol and drinks tons of water.
How Her Killer Body Helped Her Career So Far
Jennifer Lopez has an incredible body which she isn’t afraid to flaunt. Even though she started her career as a dancer, the confidence she had and still has in her body has helped her achieve all her successes today, especially being the highest-paid actress of Hispanic descent in history. To date, she is regarded as the most influential Hispanic performer in the United States.
When J-Lo began to gain popularity, because she was not “model thin”, she gave millions of women the confidence to feel good about their bodies. Because of her, it suddenly became ‘okay’ to have hips.
She has come to be celebrated for her “callipygian figure” and her buttocks which she has insured for $27 million has been described as a ‘cultural icon’. These outstanding body features have, no doubt, influenced some of the roles she got to play in a number of movies.
