We asked, "If you could have one celeb's body part, what would it be?" Survey says:
Jennifer Aniston's abs...65%
Cameron Diaz's arms...12%
Blake Lively's legs...11%
Pippa Middleton's butt...7%
Christina Hendricks' chest...5%
How to Get Jen's A-List Abs
The secret: a special combo of supertoning yoga and calorie-blasting cardio, like Spinning or running, devised by Aniston's longtime instructor, Mandy Ingber. Standard yoga poses, like the boat, become extra ab-firming in Ingber's sessions; try it for tummy-tightening results:
- Sit on floor with knees bent, feet flat. Lean torso back 45 degrees and extend arms forward, palms up, as you lift feet off floor, keeping knees bent and shins parallel to floor, to get into boat pose.
- Cross arms in front of chest and extend legs as you lower both torso and feet to a few inches off floor.
- Return to start.

How J.Lo Got Her Body Back
Jennifer Lopez rebounded from having twins in record time by working out with her trainer, Gunnar Peterson, four or five times a week. Her mission: To complete in a triathlon later that year. Jennifer followed a regimen of running, biking, and swimming, plus Peterson's hourlong circuit sessions, which alternated upper-body exercises with lower-body moves, and spliced in quick cardio bursts to maximize her calorie burn. "Jennifer works as though she has something to prove every time," Peterson says. Not only did the diva finish the triathlon in 2 hours 23 minutes and 28 seconds, but she got that smokin' body back to boot!
