It’s pretty hard to argue that Kendall Jenner doesn’t have a charmed existence. And while we can’t all aspire to her runway success or immense wealth, we can workout like her.

On her website recently, the supermodel revealed working her tummy is her number one priority. “My abs are my favourite thing to work out,” she said. “I love it when my trainer, Gunnar Peterson, kills my abs. The next day, it hurts to even laugh. That's how I know I'm doing the exercises right!”

“Sometimes when I'm watching TV, I think to myself, 'I should be doing crunches and sit-ups right now.' Then I get off the couch and do it,” she adds.

If you don’t have the cash for a personal trainer, a la Kendall, she recommends an app called Instant Abs Trainer. The app is free and features more than 100 ab exercises and workouts.

So, of course, we downloaded it.

Note: when we first opened it, a notification appeared, warning it’ll use up quite a bit of battery life. We weighed up the idea of a six pack vs being able to play Candy Crush on the bus and choose to continue on the ab journey.

The app is clean and simple enough to follow and for those keen to playing along at home, we recommend these five moves for abs that’ll get you a ticket into Kendall’s #squad.

Hip raises

Lie on the floor with feet flat on the floor and knees bent. Position your hands on the side to stabilise your position. Raise your hips off the floor. Stop when your lower back is off the floor. hold for one second.

Plank jacks

Get in the plank position. Then push up with your legs so that they land with feet shoulder width apart. Jump back to the start position and repeat until you're tired.

Dumbbell twist

Using dumbbells, stand with feet shoulder-width apart. Hold the dumbbell with both hands and position it in front of you. Twist your torso to the left. Hold for a second then the return to the middle. Next twist the torso to the right. Continue the movement for a minute.

Butt ups

Get in the plank position with your forearms on the floor. Raise your butt as high as you can. Hold for a second then return to the start position.

Side bridge

Lie on your side. Make sure one leg is on top of the other. Position the forearm on the floor perpendicular with your body. Use your forearm to lift your upper body off the ground. The other arm is placed on the side of your body. Your body should be straight. Only your forearm and the side of your foot should be touching the floor. Hold this position.
