You know that feeling when you’ve got a big event approaching and you want to look ah-mazing? Maybe it’s a 10-year school reunion, your birthday party or the first time you’ve seen your ex since the breakup. Whatever the occasion, you must look your best, so you do a detox, order a juice cleanse and double time on the sweat sessions.
Women who know this feeling more than most are the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Feeling body confident strutting their stuff in lingerie is no easy feat. Ex VS angel, Victoria Lee admitted, it takes consistent discipline throughout the year.
That being said, in the lead up to the fashion show, most angels kick their training up a notch. So what kind of exercise does it take to get VS-body ready come crunch time? Scroll down to find out.
Victoria Lee’s workout weapon is none other than Jasmine Jay from Body By Simone. She uses ankle weights and resistance bands to tighten and tone and gets her heart rate up by running on the mini tramp.
It’s a full-body workout for NZ-Angel, Georgia Fowler. Strength sets include resistance band crab walks, sledge pushes and ropes as well as medicine ball planks, throws and squats while cardio comes in the form of boxing.
Celebrity personal trainer “J” aka @jcrvz is like Charlie to these angels. These are two of his infamous workouts performed by Romee and her beau and Romee and Jasmine—since it’s been proven that working out with a partner is way more effective than sweating solo.
There’s nothing like training for a marathon to get you in tip-top shape! After training for months, Karlie Kloss ran the NYC marathon only weeks before the show but this is the exact workout she did merely 24 hours prior to going on the runway.
Josephine Skriver uses TRX, ropes and weights for a serious glute-centric sweat sesh. It’s another next-level workout from “J”. Try it for yourself, if you dare.
Along with her sweat sesh with Romee, Jasmine was spotted working on her lower body at VS institution, Dogpound. Using ankle weights, a resistance band and kettlebell, she isolates the glutes.
Lais Ribero works out at Dogpound with PT Kirk Myers too. Seen here working her core—it’s tougher than it looks!
This is the group workout performed by all of the Angels in Shanghai right before the show. #trainlikeanangel
