(10 Oct 2017) ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO SHARES HER WORKOUT ROUTINE AS SHE PREPS FOR SHANGHAI SHOW
Alessandra Ambrosio is kicking her workout into high gear ahead of the upcoming Victoria's Secret fashion show.
"You want to be on top of your game," Ambrosio said. "So to me, I work out all year long because as a model you always have to be in shape, you know, and it just makes me feel good. But before the show I want to amp up the work out, two months or three months before and even like before summertime because usually the shows in November so by July I start working out. And, you know, I like doing Tracy Anderson. I'll go for like runs, sometimes and if I feel a little tired, I'll do yoga. But I try to do like six times a week."
The Brazilian model loves to get runway ready with the help of celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson.
"So I've been working out with Tracy for like a year already and her work out is very intense. And I love working out my glutes and my abs and like here on my sides. I don't even know what it's called, you know? Like, but she makes it super fun because she incorporates a little bit of dance moves and there's always like loud, fun music in her classes. And then she always ends up on the mat with a lot of ankle weights, always like 5 pounds on each leg, and we do a lot of repetitions with the ankle weights for your glutes."
Ambrosio, a veteran of the Victoria's Secret runway, loves working with the new generation of models and taking a break from her regular mom routine.
"Being with Victoria's Secret for so long, it's been a great time. They're my family. I remember from the first show that we went to Cannes in a Concorde and I had all these amazing models that I looked up to - Stephanie Seymour or Carrie Miller. And all those girls were doing the show and I thought, 'I can't believe I'm doing the same runway, like sharing the runway with them too.' Now I can't believe that I'm still here, you know? But I just love doing it. And when I do, I feel like the other girls. I feel like I'm 20 years old! But they do make me feel young. You know like sometimes when I'm at home with my kids, I have my routine, you know, being a mom and working and my brand. But then when I'm with the girls, we can just kind of like let it go, get loose and just have fun with the runway show, with the artists, you know, they sing on the show. So it's just like a party time for me."
She's also excited to debut pieces from the Balmain collaboration at the highly anticipated fashion show.
"When I first found out that Olivier was doing a collection with Victoria Secret Balmain, I was so happy because I'm a big fan and he's my good friend, you know? And Balmain is one of my favorite brands ever. So I think the combination of Victoria's Secret lingerie with Balmain, it's gonna be something that we can't miss it, you know? It's definitely going to be iconic pieces and I can't wait for it!"
Ambrosio will be joined by fellow Angels Candice Swanepoel, Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo and Lily Aldridge on the runway in Shanghai. The annual Victoria's Secret show airs Nov. 28 on CBS.
