This is Her Workout Before a Show
Before a Victoria's Secret show, she works out "I would say an hour to an hour and a half a day. It all depends on what I'm doing that day. If I'm going on a hike or playing volleyball with my friends it might be longer but I don't usually spend more than hour and a half in the gym," she told Harper's Bazaar. She added: "I usually focus on my glutes."
She Has Done the Tracy Anderson Method
"I love to do different classes and lately I have been doing Tracy Anderson Method because it's fun and it feels more like a dance class than a work-out. But, at the same time, it's great exercise as it targets all muscle groups," she told Harper's Bazaar. The method also works for stars like Gwyneth Paltrow.
This is What She Has Said She Eats
"For breakfast I usually have eggs and/or avocado toast," she said. "After my workout I usually grab a green juice followed by lunch, where I usually have a salad along with some chicken or fish. For dinner I might go for sushi, or grill Brazilian barbecue at home. I also have some nuts or a protein bar in my bag all the times in case I get hungry while I'm running around."
She Has Taken Barre Classes
"Barre fitness is a hybrid workout class – combining ballet-inspired moves with elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and strength training," reports Johns Hopkins. It can be wonderful for your core.
She Does Yoga
"Yoga offers physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages. And, if you're going through an illness, recovering from surgery or living with a chronic condition, yoga can become an integral part of your treatment and potentially hasten healing," says Johns Hopkins. "A yoga therapist can work with patients and put together individualized plans that work together with their medical and surgical therapies. That way, yoga can support the healing process and help the person experience symptoms with more centeredness and less distress."
