We have all experienced that moment, sitting in front of the TV, during the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and contemplating our physical lives. How do these ladies walk practically naked in heels without experiencing some jiggle, cellulite, muffin-tops, stretch marks, or any other humane, common, physical trait? Well, for those of us who actually want to know, we dove into the exercise life of the VS angles.
Other than religiously going to one of the selected gyms (Dogpound, P Volve, Aerospace), the models also workout every day on their own. The average Victoria’s Secret model works out for one hour a day. Sometimes before the show, however, they will workout twice per day (one hour each session). There is the exception, such as Candice Swanepoel, who works out only three times per week, but leading up to the show, she increases it to every day.
There is a specific workout plan for Victoria’s Secret models and it consists of a combination of the following:
- Cardio (mostly steady state running and some cycling)
- Reformer Pilates
- Ballet / barre
- Dance cardio
- Circuits using weights
- Ankle weights
- Stability balls
- Heavy lifting – (for some of the models only – especially those that train at Dogpound)
Roosmarijn de Kok and her trainer, Joe Holder, share some of their most effective moves. Try to borrow some of the exercises from this video:
Granted, they have a rigid workout and diet routine, but not to be fooled, the VS angels do in fact experience some jiggle, cellulite, muffin-tops, stretch marks, and all other humane, common, physical trait. Body bronzer and other heavy-duty makeup is applied on their bodies for the fashion show to cover all imperfections.
