Give the celeb moves below a try, and feel what it’s like to work out like the stars
For the first move, and Gwyneth’s favorite, start in a high plank. Tuck one knee in, then step that foot out to the side, and kick the opposite leg through to the opposite side, in front of your other leg. Repeat 30 times on each side.
For Victoria Beckham’s favorite move, start in a tabletop position. Tuck one knee in, then lift up in a donkey kick. Next, push with your arms and lift off the ground, extending your raised leg in an arabesque.
Next is Lena Dunham’s fave move. Attach an ankle weight to one ankle. Start with one knee on the ground, both hands in push-up position. Your other leg, with the weight on it, should be extended across the bent leg with your foot on the ground. Lower your arms into a pushup, then lift and swing your weighted leg out to the opposite side, raising that same arm. Do this 30 times on each side.
For the last move, Olivia Palermo’s exercise of choice, start sitting on your side, supported by one arm. Lift your hips and kick your back leg out to the side, raising the same arm. Complete 30 reps for each side.
