Heidi Montag’s idea of the perfect body has changed significantly over the years. “I used to want skinny legs and the gap in between the thighs — I thought that was such a staple of being fit,” she exclusively tells Us Weekly in a cover story. “Now my opinion of what’s sexy and what’s healthy is so different.” After giving birth to her second child, son Ryker, in November 2022, the Hills alum, 37, decided to up her workout game.

Welcome to Plathville’s Barry Is in His Revenge Era — and He's Ripped What about exercise? I worked out five to seven times a week, only for an hour, because with mom life, that’s all I had. It’s a lot of weight training, which I continue to do. Squatting, pushups, pullups, ring rows, lunges — just your basic workout at a high, intense weight. You’re also running around after two kids… It’s a lot. I like to be outside with the boys and go on hikes with them. And with Ryker, when I’m holding him, I’ll drop and do 10 squats. So I try to work out on the go as well. Do you have a trainer? Spencer would call himself a trainer sometimes! He’s …
