The Telegraph recently caught up with supermodel Adriana Lima, who candidly discussed how she’s preparing for the upcoming Victoria’s Secret fashion show. It all started in August, when she began working out daily with a personal trainer; for the past three weeks, she bumped up the frequency to twice-daily workouts.
“It’s really intense, it’s not really the amount of time you spend working out, it’s the intensity,” she explained. “I jump rope, I do boxing, I lift weights, but I get bored doing that. If I am not moving, I get bored very easily.”
Lima also adopts a strict diet overseen by a nutritionist; it’s complete with supplements, vitamins and protein shakes. The Victoria’s Secret Angel drinks a gallon of water every day, for now — she’ll drink normally two days before the show and, 12 hours before the show, she’ll stop drinking water entirely. In the nine days before the fashion show, she’ll live on protein shakes made with powdered egg.
Judging from the behind-the-scenes photos Circe Hamilton of the Telegraph captured, all the hard work Adriana Lima has put in for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show is clearly paying off.
