9 Victoria's Secret models reveal their favourite workouts
Victoria's Secret models are within a minority that can make being perched on a rock in the middle of the ocean look sexy. Certainly, while we go from pay-check to pay-check trying to emulate the look of Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and Sara Sampaio, it's evident that they have never had to pay anything to achieve their chiselled features, lithe bodies and angelic faces.
Yes, it's not fair, but it's also true that a lot goes into maintaining that level of bodily perfection. After all, Victoria's Secret models don't get picked to walk in the biggest runway event of the year for nothing. Here, take a gander at some of the workouts that the likes of Irina Shayk and Bridget Malcolm swear by...
1. Josephine Skriver
Speaking to AOL, Skriver said "I found this great place called Dogpound. It's kind of bootcamp style so one day it's boxing, other days it's weightlifting and then it's only body weights so we always keep it up and its always different. I also love things like biking. I love being one with nature, so a hike or a bike ride or anything that gets me out."
2. Alessandra Ambrosio
Victoria's Secret vetern, Ambrosio, swears by the Brazil Butt Lift - a workout that fuses ballet, Brazilian martial arts, kickboxing, and Afro-Brazilian dance.
3. Alana Arrington
In an interview with W, Arrington disclosed "I try every day to walk as much as I can. When I'm at the gym I do yoga, abs, low intensity cardio, and I always sit in the sauna to sweat out all of the toxins in my body."
4. Georgia Fowler
"I like to rotate boxing, spinning, and Pilates classes with weights and gym work or even a walk/run. It's hard to keep up any routine whilst traveling, but getting the heart rate going is the best way to fight jetlag so I often travel with a skipping rope and do a Nike Training App workout in my hotel room - even if it's only for 20 minutes," the New Zealand native told Buro 24/7
5. Irina Shayk
When in conversation with Yahoo, Shayk said "I'm this kind of girl that wants to be better every time, that's why I push myself so much to go to the gym, I do a little bit of boxing, I do the Pilates machine, I work out with my personal trainer."
6. Jasmine Tookes
"I do barre classes at Physique 57, I think it's really good and gives you a nice little bum, so I do it twice a week. I also do a lot of weight training filled with squats and lunges and all that fun stuff," Tookes revealed to Stylecaster.
7. Joan Smalls
Speaking to BAZAAR, Smalls asserted "When the show is coming I go the extra mile and make sure my routines are different. I do three different routines - I'll do kick boxing, I have my personal trainer and I'll do reformer pilates.I do all those three alternate, work out on my own and go for a jog. Its making sure you stay active and have fun doing it and not over stressing it because that might create the anxiety. Just chill!"
8. Bridget Malcolm
"I do a bit of boxing but I have actually shifted over to doing a workout called 'Body by Simone,' which is little bits of high intensity cardio mixed with a lot of toning. It's really changed my body, and it's found these muscles that I didn't know existed," Malcolm said in an interview with Popsugar.
9. Elsa Hosk
Speaking to Marie Claire, Hosk revealed "I love boxing, and I try to mix it up as much as I can. Boxing makes you kind of tight, so it's really good to mix that with barre, pilates, or something that'll stretch you out and make you longer. I'm not the person that loves to be in the gym so much. I like to mix it up as much as possible, otherwise I'll get bored."
Well, they certainly deserve those angel wings, don't they?
