The Victoria’s Secret Angel is known for her impeccable style and this time too, she stunned her fans with her sultry looks at the IWC Schaffhausen gala dinner in Geneva, Switzerland. She wrapped herself in a not-so-appealing neutral silk gown, but the thigh-high split caught all the attention.

Adriana Lima’s Fitness Routine

Lima swears by High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), which is a balance of hig- intensity exercises followed by low-intensity ones. She makes use of jump ropes during HIIT to reap maximum benefits. Here is a video she posted on Instagram in which the supermodel is seen engaged in criss cross rope jumping. It is a good cardio exercise which helps her lose fat and gives her a toned tummy. The HIIT exercises helped the model shed her post-baby weight in as less as five weeks. She worked out with her trainer twice a day, seven days a week when she had to walk the ramp for Victoria’s Secret after she gave birth.

Boxing is another workout which Lima loves. She practices a combination of complex drills with higher velocity and strength to keep her mentally and physically fit. The cardio requires her to be mentally quick and precise making her sharp.

Squats and abdominal workouts keep her body ramp ready. To tone her abs, she doesn’t workout with weights or on machines but just focuses on high intensity and rigorous workouts. She also incorporates core twists and side-reaching oblique raises to keep her abs strong and toned.

Adriana Lima’s Healthy Diet

Lima’s diet plays a vital role to keep her in shape. She follows a portion-controlled diet and her breakfast is usually the richest meal of the day. She has a protein-rich breakfast of egg whites or lean meat and protein shakes. She starts her day with egg whites and oats and accompanies it with milk or coffee. She also has muesli with yogurt or honey for a change.

Adriana Lima’s consumes lots of fish, chicken or red meat with grilled veggies, and often consumes raw veggies like cucumbers and carrots for snacks. These veggies have a high water content which keep her hydrated and refreshed throughout the day. Her last meal of the day includes fresh veggie salad.
