We caught up with Pasterino, who trains VS Angels Devon Windsor, Blanca Padilla, and Romee Strijd, at a workout class in partnership with athleisure brand Varley, where he shared seven ways to get a Victoria’s Secret body.

1) Check out an infrared sauna

An infrared sauna is always on my Victoria’s Secret clients’ agenda to maintain their water weight! Whether it’s for an audition or a show, they are looking to keep water retention as low as possible. The infrared sauna is also really good for your skin, as it creates a lasting glow.

2) Get tight and toned

The one request I get from every model is to get rid of their jiggle. It isn’t so much about size as it is about getting your muscles tight and lean, so when they walk down a runway, you see the natural contour and structure of their legs. I always focus on the thighs and arms by using my specially designed equipment – the and the P.ball – that sculpts hard-to-target muscle groups, like the inner thigh and underarm.

3) Follow a healthy and filling diet

When it comes to diet, healthy proteins and veggies are at the top of the list with a focus on foods that are easy to digest, so there’s no bloating.My VS clients eat a lot of fish. Simple tip: blend up your veggies, so they break down easier in your body. And you don’t need to avoid carbs altogether, just be smart about the type of carbs and ingredients you put in your body – quinoa and sweet potato in moderation are great options.

4) Say no to alcohol

Drinking is a sure-fire way to mess with your digestive track and dehydrate your skin, so my clients give up drinking a couple weeks out from a big show.

5) Incorporate rest days

Rest days are KEY. Sometimes my clients are working out 2 hours a day leading up to a big show, but the results really kick in (especially when it comes to getting lean) on rest days. This helps prevent their body from getting inflamed or swollen. For example, my clients will do 3 days on, 1 day off and sometimes take off the day before a casting or show.

6) Actively look at ways to relieve stress

When it comes to looking and feeling your best, stress can be the ultimate hurdle. For many of the girls leading up to a show, eliminating stress is a high priority. Stress leads to puffiness in the skin, bloating, and unnecessary weight gain. To reduce stress, my clients try to avoid traveling, if they can, to stay in their every day routine to ensure they are getting good quality sleep. That means avoiding going out and sticking to strict bed times.

7) Create muscle definition

Thigh definition is everything when walking down the runway, so a majority of the girls come to me to create just that. My method, P.volve, provides movements that are the secret sauce to lean, strong legs and that is the main focus in every session. I love to use my heavy and light resistance bands to carve out the outer thigh, inner thigh and hips. I use a series of small, stepping patterns and legs lifts, using a high range of motion, which is the perfect formula to bring out detailed thigh and hip definition.
