Train Like an Angel: Arms Circuit
The Runway Arms Circuit uses resistance bands. Resistance bands give your arms a long, lean and strong look. Also, they’re easy to travel with, and you can attach them to anything. Look for Resistance Bands on Amazon that come with a door attachment. Unless you have a partner/trainer there to hold the bands for you. The attachment is great, especially if you don’t have a partner or trainer to hold the other end for you.
You need to add some resistance to your arm workouts in order to tone your arms. Resistance bands emphasize three planes of motion: front, side, and angle. This is to tone the front, back, and sides of your arms. As seen in the exercise video below, do 12-15 reps for each exercise. Go slow, and feel the burn as you go for that 15th rep.
- Slight Incline bicep curls
- Tricep extensions
- Straight bicep curls
- Decline bicep curls
- Stretch (3-5 mins)
- Wood Choppers
Train Like an Angel: Core Circuit
For the core workout, do 12-15 reps per exercise:
- Side Stretches
- Knee Crosses
- Elbow Planks
- Inner Thigh Raises
- Oblique V-Ups
Miranda Kerr Tuesday/Thursday Workout Routine = Run & Ballet
Miranda Kerr loves the beach and forest. She runs there when she can. Otherwise, she runs in whatever city she is in. Miranda Kerr goes for 2.5-5 km runs. In this picture, Heidi Klum tags along:
- Morning Run: 2.5-5km
Miranda Kerr’s trainer, Justin Gelband, says:
I make sure all my models run – whether they’re lean, skinny, fit, or overweight.
Ballet Workout Routine:
Miranda Kerr has a love for ballet. She incorporates ballet moves into her workout routine at least twice a week. Hold and control each movement. Getting toned is about opposition of your body parts, similar to Pilates.
- Fondue to Arabesque Plies (32 reps)
- Arabesque Pulses (32 reps)
- Inner Thigh Splits To Sous-Sous (32 reps, alternating legs)
- Side-Lying Developpe Series (24 reps, each leg)
- Side-Lying Upper Glutes Developpe (32 reps, each leg)
- Supine Grand Battements Series with 2 lbs. weights (16 reps on each side)
About being fit, and what it takes to be a Victoria’s Secret model, Miranda Kerr says:
Victoria’s Secret want lean, fit, tight models. I believe in celebrating the female figure and embracing what we’ve been given, not hiding that.
Ballet Workouts are great because you can do them anywhere. Always traveling, makes it hard for Miranda. It’s important to not have excuses when you’re going to work out. Miranda Kerr’s trainer, Justin Gelband, says:
I ask each model to bring a notepad and get them to write down exercises they can do on the road when they travel. I also order them medicine balls and bands to take on their trips.
