Here is everything you need to know about her Pilates workouts.

Vanessa Hudgens is getting a Pilates session in at the Alo Studio – and showing off her baby bump. In a new social media post the actress flaunts her belly in a crop top and leggings post-workout. "Lil Pilates + Laura Quinn = Win win," she captioned the Instagram Stories image. Vanessa is a longtime Pilates devotee. Here is everything you need to know about her Pilates workouts. 


Vanessa Is an Athlete

Nonna Gleyzer, one of the High School Musical star's Pilates trainers, recently told us that "It's extremely easy to work with Vanessa, because she is by far one of the most coordinated, focused, and very in tune with her body people. She is also very flexible and has amazing control. It's like working with a dancer and an athlete at the same time," she says. "She is very active and does different workouts all the time. She just loves to move her body."


Leg Day Workout

"We usually start with the foot workout on the reformer and training the legs in every dimension possible," says Gleyzer about Vanessa's leg day workouts. "The thighs contain several muscles. The quadriceps and hamstrings help us bend and extend the hips and knees. The adductors move the legs inward toward each other. The pectineus and sartorius let you flex and rotate the thighs at the hip."


Ab Day Workout

On ab day, Vanessa does "lots of abs with the pilates ball as well as side ups on the Pilates spine corrector. This allows her to get deeper into the muscles while protecting the back," she says. 


Upper Body Workout Day

Vanessa's upper body workouts are done on the Pilates Cadillac, "where we use the roll-down bar to arm and do lots of moves that involve stretching and control," she says. 


Vanessa "Knows Her Body Well"

Overall, Gleyzer maintains Vanessa is a great client to train. "Working with Vanessa is incredible and so easy as she knows her body so well and loves to see results," she says. 


She Does 3 to 4 Pilates Sessions Per Week

Vanessa trains with Nonna at her Body By Nonna studio three to four times a week. "When it comes to pilates and when we work together, we see each other 3 to 4 times per week," she reveals. During the sessions they work the whole body, but also focus on a single group of muscles.
