Consider this your build-it-yourself workout plan. Here, five areas on the fittest stars we love and the moves for you to tone up and slim down.
You Want: Cameron Diaz’s Arms
There’s no question Cameron Diaz puts in some serious time at the gym to get her arms in G.I. Jane shape, and with these moves you’ll be one step closer to a sculpted pair of your very own. Tricep Dips:
Start by lying on your back. Bending your knees, place your feet about a foot away from your butt, heels down; toes pointed up. Place your hands flat behind you, fingertips pointing towards your back, elbows tucked against your sides. Bend your arms and lower your body until your upper arms are parallel to the floor. Your hips should drop straight toward the ground, but try not to let your butt sit on the floor.) Hold for a beat, then push up through your palms to straighten your arms and repeat.
You Want: Gisele Bundchen’s Abs The secret to Gisele Bündchen’s abs is a mix of both diet and exercise. Eating three cupcakes a day won’t widdle your waistline like hers, but pair a healthy diet with these moves and you’ll be showing off your six-pack all summer long.
Get into a push-up position with your forearms on the floor. Lift your legs and torso up off the ground so that only your toes and the flats of your forearms remain on the floor. Keeping your back neutral and your belly button pulled in, hold this position. Your body should be in a straight line—keep your gaze on the floor (so you don’t put stress on your neck) and remember to take deep breaths.
You Want: Halle Berry’s Shoulders
Halle Berry has one of the most famous décolletages on the red carpet. Tone up your chest and shoulders with the moves below.
Lie on your back with knees, feet flat on the floor. Hold dumbbells over your chest, with your palms facing each other. With a slight bend in your elbows, slowly lower your arms out to your side, but don’t let your elbows touch the floor. Squeeze your chest to bring your arms back to start.
You Want: Jennifer Aniston’s Legs
Jennifer Aniston’s gams have been buzzed about for years (and with good reason). Try one of these moves to lean up your legs.
Stand with feet no more than shoulder-width apart and your hands out in front of you, lightly cupped. Make sure that your toes point forward. Bending your knees, lower your body and sink into your heels as if you were sitting back into a chair, and keep your chest high. Push through your heels until you are standing up straight. Keep your abs tight throughout. Repeat.
You Want: Jennifer Lopez’s Butt
When it comes to rears, Jennifer Lopez’s behind is ahead of the rest. These moves will have your tush looking perkier before you know it.
Lie on your back with knees bent, feet slightly apart, arms down at your sides. Squeeze glutes together and tighten your abdominals. Continue to squeeze glutes as you raise your pelvis toward the ceiling, lifting as high as you can. Hold for three counts. Keeping glutes tight, slowly lower your pelvis down to the floor, starting with your midback and ending with your tailbone.
