AERIAL SUP­PORT Get­ting fit is all about get­ting high. Su­per­mod­els like Natasha Poly and An­gela Lind­vall are sus­pend­ing their lithe bod­ies in the air with elas­tic bands. (It’s known as “aerial yoga.”) Celeb trainer Tracy An­der­son has taken the trend to new heights by of­fer­ing pri­vate lessons in Stack­ing, in which her sig­na­ture puls­ing and torquing moves are done in a prone po­si­tion—al­beit six feet in the air, sup­ported by an in­struc­tor. Talk about higher learn­ing.

NO DROOPY BOOTY Canadian soc­cer star Adri­ana Leon of the Women’s Na­tional Soc­cer team keeps her butt as firm as a soc­cer ball by in­cor­po­rat­ing bridges into her train­ing. “When you’re train­ing your glutes, it’s im­por­tant to slow things down and fo­cus on your form,” she says. Here’s how to try it at home: 1. Tie a band around your thighs, just above your knees. 2. Lie on your back with your feet on the floor and bend your knees, hip-width apart, at a 90-de­gree an­gle. 3. Lift your hips un­til they align with your shoul­ders and knees—your body should form a 45-de­gree an­gle.
