The Gigi Hadid Workout for When You Want to Look (and Feel) Like a Supermodel

There's no doubt you've heard of supermodel Gigi Hadid (model for Tommy Hilfiger, Fendi, and her latest, the face of Reebok's #PerfectNever campaign). We know she gets down with everything from yoga and ballet to the signature Gigi Hadid workout: boxing. That's why we got Barry's Bootcamp trainer Rebecca Kennedy to put together this total-body routine that mashes up everything Gigi would ever want in a workout. (Want to know her diet secrets too? You'll never guess the health food she basically grew up eating.)

How it works: Do each exercise for the amount of time specified. Once you've completed all the exercises, rest for 90 seconds. Try to do 4 sets. Feel the burn.

Front Leg Swing with Front Lunge

A. Stand with feet together and hands on hips.
B. Swing right leg up, foot flexed and knee straight, to hip height (or higher, if possible). As leg swings back down, immediately step forward into a right leg lunge.
C. Push off right leg to return to start.

Repeat for 30 seconds on each side.

Dolphin Inchworm to Leg Lift

A. Begin in dolphin plank position: low plank with palms pressed flat on the floor and fingertips pointing forward.
B. Keeping shoulders over elbows, walk feet in toward hands until they are about 12 inches away. Lift the left leg as high as possible, then place it back on the floor. Repeat with the right leg.
C. Walk feet back out to dolphin plank position.

Repeat for 30 seconds.

Plank with Sagittal Punches

A. Begin in high plank position.
B. Lift right arm and punch directly forward so that biceps is next to ear. Return to high plank. Repeat on the left side.
C. Continue alternating, keeping core tight and hips stationary. (To modify: Drop down to knees or elbows.)

Repeat for 60 seconds.

Jab-Jab-Cross-Slip-Hook

A. Begin in a ready position with left foot slightly in front of right foot and fists guarding face.
B. Jab twice with the left hand, turning torso to the right and fully extending left arm. Pull left fist back to guard face between punches.
C. Punch the right arm forward, pivoting on the right foot and turning torso forward (cross).
D. Pull the right arm back immediately to guard face, turn torso to the right, and crouch a few inches as if dodging a punch.
E. Swing the right fist around to punch from the right side, arm forming a hook shape. Imagine the punch landing on the right side of a punching bag.

Repeat for 60 seconds.

Grand Pliés with Calf Raise

A. Begin with feet wide and toes pointed out at 45 degrees, arms held wide at shoulder height in a T position.
B. Lower down into a plié so thighs are parallel to the floor. Maintaining this position, lift heels to raise calves, and circle arms forward and overhead.
C. With heels lifted, press through toes to straighten legs, then lower heels and arms back to a T.

Repeat for 60 seconds.

Uppercut Burpee

A. Stand with feet together. Place hands on floor in front of feet and jump feet back, lowering body to floor.
B. Press body off the floor, moving through plank, and jump feet up to hands. Immediately jump into a ready position, left foot slightly in front of right and fists guarding face.
C. Do an uppercut with the left hand, scooping fist down then up with biceps and core engaged. Pivot the torso to the right and drive the left hip forward. Do an uppercut with the right hand, pivoting torso and driving right hip forward. Repeat with the left hand, then the right hand.
D. Place hands on floor to begin next burpee.

Repeat for 45 seconds.
