Keeping fit, even as you age, is essential not only to have an always young and trained body, but also to keep the brain active and stimulate muscles and bones. Cindy Crawford knows this well, on her Instagram profile she regularly shares workouts, routines and exercises with her followers to which the fifty-five-year-old supermodel dedicates herself every day. From the stairs, to go up and down quickly to test your heart and glutes, to the killer routine for the abs, here are three tips to train like Cindy Crawford.
Never forget your abs
Like many other celebrities, even Cindy Crawford during the first lockdown took the opportunity to share with her followers activities and pastimes to do at home to spend the days and keep fit. These included a 6.39-minute abs routine that Crawford had recorded years earlier on a New York rooftop. 10 regular crunches, 10 sit-ups, 10 roll-ups and 10 v-ups both right and left, for a total of 150 sit-ups to be done in just six minutes and a little more. A must try for a physicist like Cindy Crawford’s.
Training with weights
Whether they are abdominals, squats or lunges, what is certain is that Cindy Crawford often combines the use of weights with bodyweight exercises. As shown by some videos published by the same top on her social channels, keeping fit especially with advancing age requires continuous work on muscles, bones and back. From leg and abdominal exercises (in the video he climbs on the bench one leg at a time and lifts a weight also engaging the abs and arms in addition to the legs) to weighted squats, combined exercises are Crawford’s secret to a still young physique .
Running up and down the stairs
“There is a staircase leading from the house to the beach. I put my headphones on with music or an audio book and start running back and forth up the stairs for about 20 minutes.” This is stated by Cindy Crawford in an interview with The Cut in 2017. The supermodel added that she also uses the elliptical or the treadmill, but with this view it is understandable why (as soon as she can) the model opts for a healthy climb and descent with an ocean view, which allows her to work at the same time on cardio, slimming and toning the buttocks. The professional touch? Keep your abs tight for added benefit.
