Last night, anyone with cheap lingerie sets a television and a cable connection tuned in to the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, where the world's best bodies walked the liveliest runway in New York wearing little more than their underwear and a 10-foot-plus set of wings. What does it take for the models to prepare mentally and physically for the big event? We asked some of the top Angels to divulge their secrets for getting ready in the months and weeks leading up to the show. Here, their responses, which reveal the steely fortitude of a professional athlete and a near-universal obsession with coconut water.
What is your workout routine leading up to the show? My lead-up to the show changes every year! Each year I grow more into my body, my career, my wellness, my mind, and my inner spirit. As a young woman, you take for granted that staying lean and in shape is easy, but then you become a woman with responsibilities! I get a huge amount of enjoyment from participating in dancing, Zumba, Pilates, ballet, swimming in the ocean, and the occasional aerobics class.
Who also cheap lingerie sets do you train with? This year, since I knew that my season, which started in September, was overloaded, I decided to bring my trainer Justin Gelband to Brazil with me while I worked. Justin and I have been training with each other for six years. Our workouts vary, but each one concentrates on developing more strength, mobility, stability, flexibility, movement, motion, and a body that takes me down the runway looking my best.
What do you do? Boxing, yoga exercise, cheap lingerie sets Pilates, toning, shaping, cardio, and any other type of exercise my trainer comes up with. Our company is never bored! When we workout, we focus on the full body, and being strong from top to bottom. Obviously, kicking a trainer's butt with some boxing gloves makes any woman's day time!
How often a week? Four to five days a week before the show. My body reacts best when I rest a day in between. On the whole, 100 moments of nonstop action every other day does me well!
Do you make modifications to your diet? I avoid cut anything out. I actually focus on eating more protein and carbs to build a stronger body. I have a protein shake every day. Most people avoid want to believe it, but I most likely eat more than a man does!
What's the most fun part of getting ready intended for the show? The most fun part is treating it like a project and viewing how far I can push myself in that time, seeing my body modify and get stronger. The best part about training for the show is the amount of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears you put into something you always dreamed of doing.
