Plank on it. Check out Kelly Rowland’s amazing abs and arms in this Instagram of her doing a star plank—with a huge smile on her face, making it look effortless! Be sure to pick up the October SHAPE to get her entire workout from trainer Jeanette Jenkins, and see if you can name the videos of the singer and X Factor mentor’s greatest hits.
Xtina’s back! Although the The Voice judge has received some flack over the last couple of years for her changing shape, Christina Aguilera is having the last laugh as she shows off her amazing new physique in Maxim magazine. Rumor has it she’s achieved the bod thanks to yoga with trainer Tee Sorge. "She believes in exercise that she enjoys, doing strength work as opposed to intense cardio,” US Weekly reports.
New mom shape-up advice. Although she has her hands full with her new baby and kicking butt on a hit TV show, Homeland star Claire Danes still makes time to look after her body. The actress stays in shape by eating clean, doing three days of cardio a week, and getting as much sleep as she can, she told FitSugar. She also credits exercise with stabilizing her emotions and keeping her balanced.

But we tracked down the pictures of 15 celebs as high school athletes, and these ladies still have amazing bodies today. You don't want to miss this!
