Getting dumped really hurts. It’s normal to mope around and feel sorry for yourself. After moping around for awhile, you may decide that you want to win your partner back. Or at least make him really regret dumping you! You could start working out at the gym. If you became a hottie with a ripped little revenge body, your ex might beg for you to take him back. But would you really want him?

“Revenge Body” is also a TV show starring Khloe Kardashian. She helps people get in shape, so they can feel better about themselves. A revenge body isn’t just to retaliate against your ex. Exercise helps your mood, and your physical health. If you are sad after getting dumped, exercise can help fight sadness and depression. Making your ex drool over your new body is just an added bonus.

Listen as Jordin talks to her trainer, Romeo, about getting revenge on her ex-boyfriend.

I,ve never tried to make an ex jealous. but when I was a student in college, I tried to get a revenge body, I went to gym for 3 monthes but I didn,t keep it on. after a few month when I had come back home, I went to gym again for 4 month. in that time I was a little ripped. I had good feeling about my self.

When a girl in my youth dumped me, i worked hard to get a revenge body. I get ripped and athletic also I became addicted on training! I did that, not exactly to make the girl suffer or to be jealous. I was trying only to improve my self esteem because i was very sad with the situation. I have tried sometinhg to not mope around!
