The Duchess is reportedly a big fan of weight training, so it’s no surprise her muscles are impressive. Her passion for tennis will help with her toned arms too.
Tennis helps to tone muscles and build strength, so Duchess Kate’s commitment to being on the courts likely contributes to her envy-inducing arms.
The royal’s love of CrossFit will also help with her impressive arms; the high-intensity interval training includes push-ups, shoulder presses and overhead squats, all known to shape the arms.

Exercises to try for toned arms like Duchess Kate’s
Push-ups for sculpted arms
“Push-ups use resistance and your own body strength to build your arm muscles, which will help to create a more sculpted look,” says Gemma, a trainer at London studio Barrecore.
Push-ups work your biceps, triceps, shoulders, chest, back and abs for an all-rounder move for a sculpted upper body.
