How does Stella McCartney stay in such good shape
The mother of four has previously followed the tough, dance-based regimen of Gwyneth Paltrow’s trainer, Tracy Anderson, but says her shapely bottom is the result of regular running, yoga and general cross-training.
'I want to be fit so I don't get out of breath when I play football with the children,' mother-of-four Stella McCartney told Vogue earlier this year
‘I ride my bike, I work out, I do a bit of, er, dancey things,’ she told Vogue earlier this year.
‘I want to be fit so I don’t get out of breath when I play football with the children.’
TRY THIS: The ‘squat with kick back’ exercise is a great way to target the muscles in the buttocks and the quadriceps (at the back of the thighs).
Stand with legs shoulder-width apart.
Assume a squat position, as though you’re sitting down — lean forward from your hips, keeping your back straight and bottom out.
Keep your weight on your heels.
Bend your arms at the elbows and lightly clench your fists at eye level.
Extend your arms straight in front of you and extend your left leg straight behind your body, keeping the right leg squatting.
Keep your hips square — don’t twist to the side. Hold briefly for one to two seconds. Return to the squat position and repeat with the other leg.
Repeat eight to ten times on each leg.
