Former champion boxer and fitness expert Michael Olajide, Jr. famously helped model Adriana Lima get back in shape for the 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show — just eight weeks after she gave birth. "We kind of had to override nature in a way," Michael says about the postbaby transformation. He scheduled workouts with Adriana twice a day, using a mix of jump rope, shadowboxing, and sculpting maneuvers. "Before you know it ... she was onstage," Michael says.
Michael insists that you don't have to be a supermodel to undergo a body transformation. His new program "Sleekify" is all about using cardiovascular workouts to build muscle endurance - and best of all, there are no weights necessary So, with workouts that burn around 1,000 calories, there are sure to be results.
If you think jumping rope is just for boxers and young girls, think again. Michael says this workout is essential for getting in tip-top shape. "So many people have not discovered the benefits of a jump rope," he explains, before demonstrating some ridiculously impressive jumping skills.
Michael's best advice is to treat food as fuel and stay away from "eating for emotional reasons or stress." He suggests consuming your largest meal of the day in the afternoon, unless you have a physical job, in which case you should eat your largest meal in the morning to fuel up.
