The Fitness Model Workout That Sculpts Your Body Like It's Your Job

Fitness models literally get paid to work out and keep their bodies in top-notch shape. (Whatever shape that may be—because you know we're all about that #LoveMyShape body positivity.)

But that means they know their stuff when it comes to the getting the biggest bang for your workout buck—including Rebecca Kennedy, Barry's Bootcamp trainer and fitness model, who designed this fitness model workout. (Want more from this all-star? Just try her superhero body workout or the high-intensity running interval workout that strengthens all over too.)

How it works: You'll do supersets of a strength drill for 45 seconds, then a plyometric drill for 30 seconds. Work your way through all the fitness model workout moves, then rest for 1 minute. If you're a beginner, try to complete the full set three times, intermediate athletes try four times, and advanced try five times.

Push-Ups

A. Begin in a high plank position with hands slightly wider than shoulders.
B. Lower chest down, bending elbows and pointing them back at 45 degrees, then press away from the floor to lift chest back to start. Beginner: Plant knees on floor. Intermediate: Do a regular push-up. Advanced: Lift one foot off the floor.

Do AMRAP for 45 seconds.

A. Run in place, driving knees up to chest and keeping core tight.

Continue for 30 seconds.
