Victoria’s Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio revealed the secret to the toned thighs she expertly struts during each VS fashion show.
Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio possesses some of the most toned pairs of legs ever to walk the runway for Victoria’s Secret. And while many people assume it takes a tough workout with a personal trainer to get bikini ready for each show, Ambrosio dishes on her simple secrets to get her gams runway ready.
Ambrosio, one of the brand’s first spokesmodels for its “Pink” line, is a mother of two and one of Forbes’ top-earning models in 2012. She’s been featured in several “Train Like an Angel” exercise videos, showing how Victoria’s Secret models prep themselves for a big show.
Despite assumptions that the models work in a specially equipped gym to achieve the sculpted bodies they strut on the runway, Ambrosio reveals that all her leg exercises can be performed in the comfort of home without the need for any equipment.
Her 2015 “Train Like an Angel” video features lunges, leg lifts and toe taps to help tone and lengthen her legs. The entire workout only lasts for a maximum of 20 minutes, making it easy to incorporate into anyone’s busy day.
“When it’s burning it’s good,” Ambrosio says on the video. “It burns so good!”
While the exercise videos can be done without any equipment, the Victoria’s Secret angel recommends wearing ankle weights to toughen the body as it grows stronger.
Even her personal trainer agrees. “The whole part of the leg series is to really accentuate the leg,” he says.
To top off her healthy exercise regimen, Ambrosio also does Pilates, recommends having a big breakfast, lots of coffee and Japanese food.
