Does stripping give Rihanna more confidence? Well, kind of. Not actually stripping of course. In a recent interview with British’s Women’s Fitness magazine, the singer reveals dressing sexier and more revealing on stage has certainly boost her confidence.
She says, “The more I got naked, the more comfortable I felt. I just had to face my fear. You always find something wrong, you always find something you’re uncomfortable with, and one thing turns into another and you get embarrassed and self-conscious about it.”
“After a while, it was like, ‘What’s the worst that can happen?’ and I just started being a little more daring with it. It was just knowing my body is the way it is no matter what that helped me, knowing that it is what it is under clothes or outside of clothes.'” She does, however, notes her approach in feeling more comfortable with herself might not be for everyone. “My way probably won’t work for most people,” added the 24 year old singer.
How does Rihanna get that sexy physique?
Her personal trainer Harley Pasternak, also responsible for the bodies of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Megan Fox, just to name a few, says Rihanna keeps in shape with short, sharp routines involving cardio, resistance work and core exercises.
“If you want to work out like Rihanna, train hard and often, but not long. Rihanna is really driven, there’s no need for me to motivate her. She trains for at least 25 minutes at a time, and she loves skater lunges, deadlifts and dumbbell work… Her least favorite exercise is running.”
The singer has also noted she follows the 5 factor diet. One she has found difficult to adhere to wild touring but for her it works. The diet consists of eating 5 meals a day and working out 5 days a week for 25 minutes with 1 day to indulge.
