Want Perfect Abs? This VS Model-Approved Workout Will Get You There

Fact: Victoria’s Secret model Maria Borges is the owner of an almost impossibly toned figure. The Angolian beauty has legs for days and svelte-but-strong arms, but it’s her rock-solid abs we’re most in awe of. (We’re also into her chutzpah—last year Borges made history when she became the first model to walk the VS runway sans those iconic bombshell waves.)

In a video for Vogue, Borges reveals the secret behind her phenomenal abs—and it’s way more fun than endless crunches.

Re-introducing: Hula hooping. Borges' lesson in transforming this playground game into a whole body workout looks almost too simple to be effective. “It’s not easy!” she says, setting us straight. We guess no-one ever said abs come easy...

Interested in reviving this childhood favourite? Add resistance via a weighted hula hoop like Fithoop ($45) to kick up the calorie burn.
