People think that Supermodels are either: A. Naturally Skinny; B. Don’t eat anything but salad greens C.Use drugs to keep skinny. Personal training is hardly thought of synonymous to modelling.
Okay, so maybe most of them were discovered already thin (and tall) and some have gotten some media attention having messed with drugs but there’s been an evolution in the industry. The younger and fresher ones (and the smart ones) have realized that discipline and personal training is the smart way to go to last in the fashion industry.
Supermodel Personal Training With David Hirsch
Being a model is not easy. You need to be a certain body type for every specific designer collection. You need to make the clothes, the shoes and the blings look good; your body is one of the most essential elements in creating the effect that the designers are asking for.
Supermodel Bar Rafaeli recently tweeted a picture of her after one of her personal training sessions. Here’s the story on The Daily Mail:

Full Body Bootcamp By Personal Trainer David Kirsch
Two very effective moves offered by David Kirsh are the Lateral Lunges and the Reverse Lunges with High Kicks. These exercises target your butt, legs, thighs and your core.
Position yourself standing steady with your feet shoulder-width apart. Place your hands on your hips. Anchoring yourself on one foot, do a side lunge followed by a reverse or back lunge.
When you do your back lunge, make sure that your knees are in line with your heels. Wear good, stable shoes that will help keep those heels flat and steady.
Do about 10 to 15 reps for each leg.
Reverse Lunges With High Kicks
Start from the same position as you did with your lateral lunges. Lunge back then push up to a high kick with the same leg.
Personal Training Exercises For The Shoulders And Triceps
For the shoulders and the triceps, fitness guru David Kirsch recommends Shadow Boxing and Crab Crawls with Dips.
Basic cross overs and upper cuts will work your biceps, triceps, and upper back.
Stand with your feet a shoulder-width apart. Keep knees flexible. With a slight twist of your torso, punch to the left with your right hand, then punch to the right with your left hand. Make sure that your elbows are straight when you make your punches.
Follow the cross overs with upper cut, hooking up your right arm followed by the left. Do a mini squat when you’re about to do your jabs.
For this workout, instead of counting reps, do Shadow Boxing for 30 seconds at the least, progressing to 60 or more as you go on.
Crab Crawls With Dips
Crab Crawls are great exercises that will tone your arms without building too much muscles.
Sit on the floor with your heels flat on the ground. Reach dow behind your butt then push it (your butt) off the floor). Take five steps backwards and another forward. Bend your elbows and lower yourself to dip for 8 counts then take the steps forward and backward again.
Leg, Butt And Abs Personal Training Workouts
Supermodel and Celebrity Personal Trainer David Hirsch pushes for Reverse Lunges with Torso Twists and Stability Ball Hand Offs to get model-lean legs, nice, firm buttocks and tight abs.
Reverse Lunge With Torso Twist
Stand with legs slightly apart. Holding a 4-pound medicinal ball with both hands, extend your arms in front of you.
Lunge back with your left leg while twisting your torso to the opposite direction. Keep your arms straight.
Do the same on the other side. Remember to keep the heel of your front leg flat and stable.
Stability Ball Hand Offs
Lie flat on your back with legs straight and your arms extended above your head, holding a stability ball. Lift your legs up meeting with your arms as you pass the ball to them before going back to first position.
Let your arms and legs meet again, passing back the ball from your legs to your arms. Remember to feel the contraction on your core as you pass the ball back and forth.
Back And Butt Personal Training Exercises
To get Supermodel back and butt, David Hirsch lists down two workout using the stability ball.
Hyper Extension On A Stability Ball
Put the stability ball on the floor then go on top of it, facing down and balancing on your abdomen but with your toes still touching the floor.
Extend your hands above your head. Slowly lift your upper body then go back to first position.
Scissors With Stability Ball
With your belly still on the stability ball, place your hands flat on the floor for support. Lift your legs up and do a criss cross then bring it back down.
Here’s a video to show you how those last two moves are done:
