Lucy Liu's Lean Routine
To keep her body toned, the star swears by regular Pilates sessions. Steal five of her fave exercises from her longtime trainer Jared Kaplan, the owner of eco-chic Studio 26 in New York City. "Lucy does these on a reformer, but I've modified them for a mat," Kaplan says. "Instead of counting reps, continue until just before your form starts to falter."
Targets butt and hamstrings
- Lie faceup on floor with knees bent 90 degrees and feet resting on a stability ball or the seat of a sturdy chair. MAKE IT HARDER: Position yourself at arm's distance from a wall behind you and press palms into wall.
- Lift hips so that body forms a straight line from knees to shoulders. Slowly lower spine to floor, one vertebra at a time. Repeat.
