Victoria Secret angels are known for their amazing bodies. They’re always posting workouts videos and photos on their Instagram, and I love how they share this information with us!
I’ve trawled through the internet (and social media) to find these fitness and diet tips from the Victoria Secret angels. Enjoy!
It’s clear that almost ALL of the angels do boxing, with Adriana Lima being the ultimate fan. She says that boxing tones up the arms and core without adding bulk, plus it’s good cardio and never boring.
When your body is one of the most important things for your career (and you have the money for a personal trainer), it makes sense to have one. Having a personal trainer means that they learn the correct technique, they learn a variety of different workouts and they never skip workouts!
And below is a video of the gorgeous Taylor Hill working out hard with her coach Kristina Forest. Go, Taylor!
Most of the angels train every day, especially before the show. Not all workouts are super intense and hard though. A daily workout could be something such as a 1 hour yoga class, or walking along the beach. But they’re always active – it’s just a part of their lifestyle.
Core workouts are a huge part of their workouts programs. I know lots of fitness models and trainers say that they just lift weights and don’t do much core focused work. But this is not the case for the Victoria’s Secret angels. Typical exercises such as sit ups and planks are very popular.
Take a look at this plank dance session by Josephine Skriver and Jasmine Tookes! Even models need a workout buddy :)
Most angels love these little pieces of gym equipment. They use them specifically for lower body and core workouts. Kelly Gale posts workouts on her Instagram and she posted some gliding disc workouts a while ago (I’ve also posted a gliding disc workout too!) :)
The models LOVE pilates and yoga for toning up without getting bulky, and also for stretching and lengthening, and clearing the mind. I couldn’t really find any model that didn’t do pilates and yoga. They also love reformer pilates, and some do ballet too!
Most of their trainers encourage them to do a lot of cardio. Skipping seems to a really popular cardio exercise. And a lot of models also run. Although I have read that some models don’t run because it makes their legs bulky, so they only walk. Kelly Gale openly talks about how she only walks and doesn’t run.
All of the models follow a high protein and low carb diet. Their main proteins come from egg whites, fish and chicken. Vegetables and salad also make up a huge portion of their diet.
You might think that models skip meals, but they know that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Oats, eggs and smoothies seem to be the most popular breakfast items.
Yes you heard that correctly. They don’t drink alcohol! But they do drink plenty of water, which helps with their skin.
Most models drink coffee, with either full cream or skim milk.
OK I knew that they couldn’t have a perfect diet ALL the time :) They eat healthy most of the time but they don’t really restrict themselves. Good genetics also means that they can get away with some cheat meals here and there. They eat anything from pizza and pasta, to ice cream and chocolate.
Some of their favourite healthy snacks include carrot sticks and hummus, popcorn, green juices, and nuts.
I hope you found these tips helpful! :) xx
