Victoria Beckham’s Former Trainer Reveals 3 Easy Moves That Will Get You Into Shape Fast

When it comes to nailing fitness goals, nothing but the best will do for Victoria Beckham.

This is why we jumped at the chance for a one on one with former dancer, choreographer and all-round exercise guru Louisa Drake, who’s helped the British fashion designer get into shape.

Based in London, she’s the creator of the Louisa Drake Method, which fuses Pilates, yoga, ballet, and barre.

Want to achieve Posh’s lean and leggy figure? Simply grab a resistance band and try some of Louisa’s go-to moves for yourself!

  1. Place a loop band just above your ankles, keeping your feet hip-width apart and your hands in front.
  2. Bend your knees and drop your hips to your heels as you lower into a squat. Keep your spine long and core engaged.
  3. Stand and lift your right leg out to the side, with your legs straight.
  4. Place your hands to your hips to maintain a level pelvis.
  5. Try not to lean to one side. Lower your right leg and return to a squat.
  6. Repeat on the other leg.

Aim for 20 reps.

  1. Place the band above your knees.
  2. Lie on your back with your knees bent, your feet in a small V and your knees open.
  3. Squeeze your glutes and lift your hips off the floor. Keep your pelvis level and pull your navel to your spine.
  4. Pull the band tight and move your knees wider, then glide them back.

Aim for 20 to 30 reps.

  1. Place the band just above your knees and start on all fours, with your hands under your shoulders and knees under your hips.
  2. Without shifting your hips, lift your left knee out to the side so the band is stretched tight.
  3. Hold for two seconds, then slowly return to starting position.
  4. Keep your core engaged so you’re stabilized.
  5. You want to keep constant resistance in the band, so if your knee doesn’t come all the way back down to the ground, that’s fine.

Do 20 to 30 reps and repeat on the other side.
