Model Adriana Lima’s diet plan and workout routine 03
But don’t worry she’s human (after all) and when she’s not preparing herself for a Victoria’s Secret Show, do you know which is her favourite cheat meal?
“Cupcakes! I love cupcakes – it’s crazy! My favourite place in the whole world is run by a friend of mine in Miami, The Baking Girl. She makes the best cupcakes.”
As you know, every diet has to be combined with a regular workout. So, what about her training secrets?
Boxing is a real passion for Adriana and ten years of training with Michael Olajide, Jr., at New York City’s Aerospace, have assured her an athletic and well toned body. She usually works out twice a week at least for a 90-minute session.
“I tried many different things: spinning, aerobics, step, yoga. And then I tried boxing and I loved it; it became my passion. I love that it’s an intense workout, and it’s the best form of cardio. You get toned but not bulky.“
Model Adriana Lima’s diet plan and workout routine 01
Adriana begins her workouts with five to ten minutes of exercises designed to sharpen her mental concentration, including jumping jacks and shadowboxing. Then there is the jump rope for up to 30 minutes of double unders (rotating the rope around your body twice within one jump), cross overs (crossing the rope in front of your body), and side-to-sides.
Then she puts her gloves on and takes to the speed bag for a rhythmic, high frequency ten minutes of throwing punches, followed by ten minutes of double-end bag work. Finally, Adriana and her personal trainer head into the ring to spar for up to 40 minutes.
So, next time you will go on a diet, don’t forget Adriana’s words “People can sometimes think that models don’t eat or don’t work out, but that’s not the truth. We do work out, and we do eat.” Amen.
