Jennifer Lopez shows off her rock-hard abs with stunning workout selfie

When you're a bona fide legend in the world of music and entertainment, preparing for a world tour is no mean feat.

And yet Jennifer Lopez - undeniable icon that she is - has proven time and time again that she is perfectly capable of doing just that - without neglecting her famously intensive workout sessions.

Take a look at this video the 49-year-old hitmaker posted last year featuring one of her workout sessions:

Yesterday, the 49-year-old songstress took to Instagram to share a snap of her impeccably toned midriff.

Lopez impressed her 94 million Instagram followers with the snap, captioning it: "Getting it in right before rehearsals. Almost tour time."

While the Ain't Your Mama singer is no stranger to flaunting her abs on the photo-sharing app - this time around she has managed to fit her intensive workout sessions alongside the rehearsals for her upcoming 32-date summer tour

In just a few weeks time, J.Lo will be launching her It's My Party tour, which kicks off at The Forum in Inglewood, California on June 7.

In fact, she celebrates her 50th birthday the day before the last show of her tour in Miami.

Lopez also shared a couple of videos to her Instagram story of her working up a sweat just before rehearsals.

In the videos, she targets her arms and upper body with some very heavy-looking weights.

"Calling in sore tomorrow," she wrote on one video, while adding this in another slide: "Gotta work before we party."

And, of course, J.Lo's army of devoted followers wasted no time in praising the star for her chiselled physique.

"This is what I strive to look like by week 6," user lilymanners wrote, while an equally impressed fan added, "Omg I am regretting everything I ate today. You look heavenly."

"Why can’t this be me?" hollycassandra13 chimed in.

I imagine quite a few of us are asking ourselves that very question!

The North American tour officially begins on June 7 in Los Angeles and will include dates in Chicago, New York, Houston, Atlanta before drawing to a close on July 25 in Miami.
