In re­cent years, su­per­mod­els have drifted from poor eat­ing habits to­wards health­ier and cus­tom­ized fit­ness rou­tines that go in sync with their busy life­styles. The real se­cret to hav­ing that fab­u­lous “model” body isn’t only in the qual­ity of food in­take, but also in choos­ing the type of fit­ness rou­tine that is ef­fec­tive with your body type and needs. We give a glimpse into var­i­ous fit­ness rou­tines of four top su­per­mod­els - all you have to do now is get in­spired to start kickin’! “I love walk­ing up on the run­way. I box. I do a lot of re­sis­tance, three times a week.” This Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret An­gel fo­cuses on jump rop­ing, kick­box­ing and weightlift­ing. Her in­tense and cus­tom­ized weightlift­ing rou­tine with trainer Justin Gel­band fo­cuses on lower-back, butt and hip ex­er­cises, in ad­di­tion to other ex­er­cises for de­vel­op­ing bal­ance and sta­bil­ity, as she men­tions bal­ance is es­sen­tial for her mod­el­ing ca­reer.
