Tennis superstar Andy Roddick is one lucky man. His wife, model Brooklyn Decker, flaunts knockout curves that’ll stop traffic. The 23-year old sizzler was named 2010’s best summer body by Women’s Health magazine. “I have a curvy body. I have boobs. I’m a size 4. In modeling, that’s often too big,” she reveals in September’s Women’s Health.
For a while, Brooklyn didn’t appreciate her killer shape and tried to waste away on juice fasts to comply with the fashion biz’s preference for bone thin models. Thankfully, Brooke learned to embrace her womanly shape and is now focused on a healthy lifestyle. “I want people to know that you have to work hard, but it’s worth it,” says Brooke, “My workouts are well-rounded.” To stay in shape, she hits the gym five days a week and mixes it up with hour-long sessions of cardio, ab moves, and weight training.
Brooklyn’s Fave Get-Fit Moves:
1. Dip down:
“Nothing is better (for legs) than squats and lunges,” says Brooklyn. She suggests doing a mix of traditional squats and walking lunges. “Do 100, alternating between these two exercises,” she says.
2. Make a run for it:
“When I’m working in other countries, I never get to sightsee. But I’ve found that running is great way to see the city while being active,” she says.
3. Weight it out:
Her drill: chest presses, triceps extensions, and bicep curls – three sets of 15 for each. “Stick to medium weights and high reps, and you won’t bulk up,” says Brooklyn, who usually lifts 10-to-12 pounders.
4. Crunch numbers:
“I lie on my back with my legs in the air and my hands behind my head, then I reach my left arm to my right foot,” she explains. She alternates sides, then does a few sets of side crunches.
5. Get a lift:
Planks are one of Brooklyn’s favorite allover toners. “To stay up, you have to tighten every part of your body, so you’re working your abs, arms, and legs,” she says. She suggests starting with a 15-second traditional plank (facedown and balancing on your hands and feet) and working up to a minute. Then switch to a 15-second side plank, lifting your body off the ground by balancing on one forearm and the side of your foot. When you build enough strength, lift yourself by fully extending your supporting arm.
