They’re not all born that way — they have to work those bodies!

For 2 months PSLoveCharli took on a Nike Training Club fit challenge that consisted of starting, learning, and keeping a healthy lifestyle all around (eats, workouts, smoothies, juicing, etc.) Hopefully you’re keeping it up! But if you’ve lacked some, or want to slow down a bit, here’s a simple workout that you can do every night and still keep your hot bod:)

Taken from one of my old Glamour Mag reads, here’s the Supermodel Workout. 

Let’s face it though. We all don’t have a “supermodel body”, and probably never will have, but a little a day, can go a long way! Trainer Justin Gelband, The Model Whisperer suggests “Three days a week, go through this routine, changing the angle of your arms or legs slightly with each set to make sure you hit every muscle.”

Start here:

1. Archer’s Plank [works your abs, back, arms, chest, & shoulders] | Get into a raised push-up position with feet more than shoulder width apart. Bending elbow, lift right arm off floor straight up toward ceiling, rotating torso right (like drawing an archer’s bow). Lower hand to start, and repeat on opposite side. 12 to 15 reps on each side.

2. Single-arm Superman [works your abs, back, arms, chest, & shoulders] | Get into a raised push-up position with feet more than shoulder-width apart. Lift right arm and extend it forward at shoulder height (like superman). Immediately lower arm to start and repeat on opposite side. 12 to 15 reps on each side.

3. Butt Lifter [works your butt, calves, thighs, hips, abs, & back] | A. Stand with feet shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent, fists up by shoulders for balance. Shift weight onto left foot, step right leg behind you on a diagonal, leg straight, and touch toes to floor. B. Slowly sweep right leg out wide to right side (this takes balance), and touch your toes to floor. C. Lift right leg behind you as high as you can, leading with heel. Return to start. Do 12 to 15 reps.

4. Hip and Thigh Blaster [works your hips, thighs, abs, & back] | A. Stand with feet hip-width apart, fists up by shoulders. Slightly bend right knee; slowly lift leg straight out to the side, as shown. B. Lower leg without letting it touch floor, then lift it, still bent, as shown below. Lower, and repeat A and B without touching foot to floor between lifts. Do 12 to 15 reps.

In addition, he also recommends 30 minutes of cardio 3 times a week. We recommend yoga once a week, too! Then, of course, there’s still that thing about clean eating. Womp, right?
