Trainers share Victoria's Secret supermodels' workout tips to help get you in shape for summer.
Mix it up. “We did a combo of Pilates, TRX and Barre to get Alessandra Ambrosio ready for the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” says trainer Jenn Seracuse. “She showed off not only her killer backside but a toned midsection too.”
Go beyond crunches. Don’t forget to add a few 360-degree core moves, like twists with a medicine ball, Jenn says, “to target the deeper layers of the abdominals too.”
Add some instability. “Balancing is one of the best ways to build your abs,” says Jenn. “Try standing on a Bosu ball or just one leg while doing arm exercises.”
Hit the gym in the AM. Adriana Lima hits Barry’s Bootcamp for intense interval training frst thing in the morning—especially effective “because it gives your metabolism that extra kick start,” says Barry’s trainer Joey Gonzalez.
Go for the combo. Choose moves that target several areas of the body at once to maximize calorie burn, says Joey: “A plank followed by mountain climbers and push-ups will hit arms, core, back and the legs.”
Take a risk. “She pushes herself to improve with each session,” Joey says. “If you think you can’t run faster, pump up the treadmill [a small interval]!”
