What most people do not know is that models, especially supermodels, actually box to stay in shape, fit and lean.

This is proven by the countless videos of beautiful models like Gigi Hadid, Adriana Lima and others ducking and jabbing in boxing rings.

In order to look as amazing as they do, incorporate these five boxing moves.

  1. PUNCHING RUSSIAN TWIST- “Sit on the ground, cross your feet over top of one another and lift your feet off of the ground. Twist your upper body, alternating side to side. Left hand touches the ground on the right side. Right hand touches the ground on the left side. This exercise is beneficial for the core, especially the obliques.”

  2. COMBO: JAB, CROSS, HOOK, UPPERCUT, UPPERCUT- “From the ‘fighter’s stance’ to Back Hand UPPERCUT you need to pivot your back foot and bring your back hand down a touch and then snap your knuckles up toward the sky. To Lead Hand Uppercut you need to drop your lead hand down from your chin, pivot your front foot, really open up your hips away from your body. Bring your lead hand quickly out and upward towards the sky and return to ‘fighters stance’.”

  3. COMBO: JAB, JAB, CROSS- “JAB with your Lead Hand return hand back to 'home' and immediately throw another Lead Hand Jab into your Back Hand Cross. Don't forget to really pivot those feet to get those hips moving. All of your power is going to come from your ability to get your hips and feet moving. Always keep on hand at 'home' (chin) to defend yourself. Always keep your core engaged to enable you to move quickly.”

  4. DOWNWARD DOG KICK- “With your hands and feet on the ground with your butt up to the sky, in downward dog, bring your left leg straight back and up into the air as high as you can. Lower your left leg, keeping it straight, until you reach push up position and bring your knee into your chest. Bring your knee from your chest and extend back and up into the air, and really push back into your shoulders, with your armpits pushing back towards your bottom leg. Repeat x 10. Switch legs and repeat x 10. This is a total body exercise; working the core, glutes, hamstrings, back, shoulders, and chest.” 

  5. COMBO: UPPERCUT, UPPERCUT, HOOK, CROSS- “Lead Hand Uppercut into Back Hand Uppercut. Follow with your lead hand hook, then add a Back Hand Cross. Making sure you pivot with every punch that you throw. Lead Hand Jab into Back Hand Cross. Back Hand Cross to the Head then squat down and Back Hand Cross to the body.”
