How does Miley Cyrus look so good? Her abs always look fantastic! Ok, she’s 19. But aside from that she puts in the work! Since February of this year Cyrus has been training with Pilates guru Mari Winsor five to six days a week to tone the young actresses body, improve her posture, and of course, sculpt great abs.
Cyrus’ favorite moves always involve Pilates equipment but she also loves the hundred, double leg stretch, and criss-cross, which can all be done with just a mat. Footwork on the reformer is one move Cyrus relies on to lengthen and tone her legs. When Cyrus is on the road she uses Winsor’s Lower Body Pilates DVD ($15; gaiam.com) in combination with Flat Abs Pilates.
