How Jessica Simpson Got Her Toned Legs

She’s got legs and she knows how to use them!

Ever since Jessica Simpson revealed her svelte post-baby body, there is one feature in particular that seems to get the most attention from the newlywed.

So we had to ask: How did she get her gorgeous gams?

“We alternate exercises every third day,” says Teri Ann Krefting, Simpson’s trainer who works for Harley Pasternak, PEOPLE’s resident health and fitness blogger. “So we’ll do squats and lunges one day for quadriceps, deadlifts or glute raises to tighten the butt and hamstrings the next day, and then plie squats, which are good for inner thighs.”

Simpson’s four to five times a week circuit training schedule is also supplemented with at least an hour of cardio. “She walks on an incline, which helps her calves” says Krefting. “And she’s obviously genetically gift with those legs!”

Even though the fashion mogul has incredible “work ethic and dedication” Krefting says Simpson is still shocked by her her toned legs. “Jessica is so lean so you can really see the definition pop. We workout in front of a mirror and she is still surprised every time she sees it!”

And becoming Mrs. Johnson has helped in making sure she’s healthy and fit. Says Krefting: “She’s happy in a new marriage and with her kids so she has a good relationship with food, diet and exercise.”

looks like an aging Drag Queen with those oggly legs…….gross!

Guest on

There’s nothing wrong with her body, and she has every right to be proud of what she has done with it! Anyone who has a problem with it, look away, and let her live and enjoy!

guest on

I’m going to file this under “still, no one gives a f$%!” Enough about this chick already!

Guest on

Personally don’t like the look!! :( looks too masculine..

Taylor D on

I suggest you all post a picture of your body after two children (or before for that matter)!! It’s easy to make nasty comments behind a screen!! The girl looks AMAZING!! Jealousy is an UGLY LOOK!!

ceecee on

I dont care what you say from her waist down she looks like a man in drag. I give her credit for losing weight after her babies but she has gone to far over the edge. Anytime someone tells a woman she looks good with mens leg mucle and she accepts that then she needs help.

Jolene on

Yikes!!😳

her legs are too muscular

e on

I thought she got her legs in a leg transplant operation from a male donor who was a wrestler in life.

Jessica looks great in the photos, good for her.

Jeffrey on

Eww gross!! I agree with those that say she has man muscled legs. Who is Jessica Simpson again? A house wife or a prostitute?

John on

She looks ridiculous.

elena on

gift?? she look like a man…

agree with Taylor d. on

All these women, I would love to see what your legs look like. She has strong, muscular legs and that is sexy! It shows she has determination and discipline!

Matthew 7:1-51 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 3Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

John on

Can we please stop seeing pictures of Jessica’s Simpson’s man legs and lop-sided bolt-on breasts? Some of us are sensitive.

Jessica on

sorry, but Jessica’ is not very attractive anymore. Nick had her at her best (19-25). Jessica looks like a man in drag.

Jessica on

Taylor, nobody is jealous of Jessica,
She has taken this dieting way too far.

Bgood…Jessica Simpson wants comments on her appearance. Otherwise she wouldn’t post pictures of herself on instagram several times a week. Nobody is judging her soul (which is what the Bible verse you posted is about). People are responding to Jessica’s demand for attention with the constant instagrams. If she didn’t want comments on her appearance, she wouldn’t post the pictures.

? on

Does she take steroids? She looks so manly.

@? on

@?: I think Jessica is getting testosterone injections

selly on

I can believe all these awful comments ppl are posting I love her leg they look just like mine:-) I exercise a lot and women will always complement my legs before anything it fascinates them…I’m sure all of the haters commenting are fatasses that have probably never step foot in a gym…what skinny unshapely legs are sexy I don’t think so I see plenty of with cottage cheese it’s disgusting!

The woman looks great. The rest of this comment is only to those who are making the rude and negative comments about this woman. I personally had never been a fan of Jessica Simpson, actually I didn’t much like her, but all of the hate she got for gaining weight made me feel for her and all of the heat she’s taking for getting in shape has made me at least see her in a more positive light. Now, back to the nasty posts; you people are jealous, plain and simple. You can say otherwise, but the ugly truth shows forth. These same people most likely don’t have the best bodies and thus, it’s only their own insecurities and self-loathing that lead them to be cruel to those that try to better theirselves. If you as a woman have skinny Olive Oyl legs or fat thunder thighs, then instead of cutting a woman down for working to get her legs in shape, do the same. The same goes for men; instead of showing yourself to be less then a man by running down a woman just because of you’re ashamed of your not so manly legs (be they scrawny little things better suited on a young girl or huge things over run with fat), get in shape. Maybe you’ll see what real manly legs look like and see that she’s just in great shape; for a woman! Maybe you folks ought to try that crazy thing she did; working out.

The same goes for men; instead of showing yourself to be less then a man by running down a woman just because of you’re ashamed of your not so manly legs (be they scrawny little things better suited on a young girl; please note my comment to the ladies on skinny legs as well, or huge things over run with fat), get in shape. Maybe you’ll see what real manly legs look like and see that she’s just a woman in great shape!

it's all for joe on

Jessica never recovered from her dad breaking up with her for his numerous boytoys, so she is trying to make herself look as much like a man as possible. She is succeeding with the man face and man legs.

Nora on

Selly – You can or can’t believe all the mean comments? You talk about the all the mean comments people are posting then you add your own. “I’m sure all of the haters commenting are fatasses that have probably never step foot in a gym…what skinny unshapely legs are sexy I don’t think so I see plenty of with cottage cheese it’s disgusting!” NOW THAT’S A MEAN COMMENT. Don’t assume that just because people don’t go to the gym that they are overweight. There are tons of other options besides going to the gym. Every exercise that Jessica does can be done at home or outside.

meghan on

Jessica’s worked really hard and I think that she has the right to be proud of her body. However, I’m not a big fan of anything she’s wearing – including her boobs. What ever happened to going barefoot or wearing flip flops with your bathing suit?? ;O)
