Miranda Kerr's Workout Routine

Like most celebs, the Victoria Secret model likes to switch up her workout routines every so often to keep things interesting.

This Angel does a combination of strength training, yoga, Pilates, and more, ensuring that she is able to target different body parts in her workouts.

In an interview with Body & Soul Australia, she said:

"I like to exercise every day, but I mix it up. Sometimes I'll go for a walk or a run, or I'll do Pilates or resistance training. I may even just put some music on and let Flynn dance around while I hold the plank position for 10 minutes to strengthen my core."

Here are the different exercises included in her weekly workout routine.

Yoga & Meditation

As her go-to exercise, yoga is a major part of the Miranda Kerr workout.

Kerr has been practicing Kundalini yoga for over 15 years.

When she was still married to Orlando Bloom, she and the actor used to do Kundalini yoga at an exclusive Hollywood clinic.

Kerr likes to workout in the morning and tries to do at least half an hour of yoga every day.

If you're a total yoga newbie, you can find many videos on the internet that teach the practice.

You can also hop on a local yoga circuit class for a more hands-on learning experience.

Miranda Kerr's workout routine is unique because it doesn't only focus on the physical; it also involves exercises that keep her emotional and mental wellness in check. 

As a big believer in holistic health, Kerr meditates to ensure that she also remains mentally fit.

Weight/Resistance Workout

These joint-friendly exercises can help grow and tone your muscles.

  • Resistance band thrusters: 3 sets | 10 reps
  • Alternating resistance band bicep curls: 3 sets | 10 reps each arm
  • Forearm planks: 3 sets | 60 seconds
  • Resistance band kickbacks: 3 sets | 10 reps each arm

Butt Workout

A supermodel knows that a toned butt is the key to looking fabulous while strutting down the runway, so this workout is pretty intense. It's doable, though, and doesn't require a lot of equipment apart from a mat and optional weights.

Miranda Kerr uses ankle weights to further intensify this workout.

Using them will definitely add more difficulty to this exercise, but the payoff is that you get to tone your legs and butt more quickly.

Try to do at least 12-15 reps each leg for the following exercises.

  • Side leg extensions
  • Middle leg extensions
  • Angle leg extensions
  • Back stretches
  • Side leg press-ups
  • Middle leg press-ups
  • Angle leg press-ups
  • Side leg lifts
  • Knee leg lifts (push from your glutes)
  • Knee stretches
  • Clams Pilates exercise
  • Leg circles (10 for each direction)
  • Cross-over stretches

Pilates Training

The Miranda Kerr workout also includes days devoted to Pilates training.

It’s no surprise why Kerr loves Pilates so much. Unlike other forms of exercise, Pilates training doesn’t overdevelop certain body parts and neglect others [1].

Although Pilates workouts focus on core strength, it’s also a great full-body exercise that promotes strength, balanced muscle development, and flexibility.

It also increases the range of motion of your joints.

Cardio Workout

Victoria's Secret shared a series of YouTube videos called "Train Like An Angel" to show some of their models' training methods.

According to the video guide, the Angel cardio circuit consists of the following exercises.

  • Spinning/bicycle machine warm-up: 5 minutes
  • Spinning cardio: 25 minutes
  • Warm-down: 2-3 minutes
  • Stretch

As for Miranda Kerr, her cardio routine is pretty straightforward. She loves going for walks and tries to do them every day.

But when she needs a more heart-pumping exercise, she'll put on her sneakers and go for a run.

Aside from being an excellent cardio exercise, the Australian model enjoys running as it's also a great way for her to destress.

Kerr runs between three and five kilometers once or twice a week.

When training with Justin Gelband—trainer to the Victoria's Secret Angels—they go to a running track and run for a mile and a half.

They walk it out towards the end and take a one-minute rest before running back.

Arms Workout

The Miranda Kerr workout arms circuit uses resistance bands.

To give your arms a long, lean, and strong look, you need to add some resistance to your arm workouts.

Resistance bands are an excellent tool for toning your arms. This equipment emphasizes all three planes of motion—front, side, angle—and helps tone the front, back, and sides of your arms.

Try to do at least 12 to 15 reps for each of the exercises below.

  • Slight incline bicep curls
  • Tricep extensions
  • Straight bicep curls
  • Decline bicep curls
  • Stretch: 3-5 minutes
  • Wood Choppers

Core Workout

Finally, completing the Miranda Kerr workout is the core workout.

The Angel core circuit includes the following exercises. Again, try to do at least 12 to 15 reps for each.

  • Side stretches
  • Knee crosses
  • Elbow planks
  • Inner thigh raises
  • Oblique v-ups

Miranda Kerr's Diet Plan

The Miranda Kerr diet plan is as clean and simple as it can be.

She doesn't follow any extreme diets and focuses solely on eating right and making sensible choices - practices that contributed significantly to her stunning look.

Kerr likes to keep things low-carb and lean, which means she excludes processed foods of any kind in her diet and actively limits her carb intake unless they're from fruits and vegetables.

Unlike the average person, Kerr steers clear of caffeine. In fact, she doesn't seem to need it and prefers getting her energy boost from the nutrient-dense food that she eats.

Kerr also avoids sugar and wheat as much as she can, but there's one treat that she can't resist: the pavlova her grandmother makes.

Here's what the Miranda Kerr diet looks like.

Breakfast

Instead of coffee, Kerr starts her day off with a cup of hot water with lemon juice.

She loves this drink as it's full of vitamin C, giving her added energy and kick-starting her digestion. It's also much more refreshing than regular water.

For the rest of her breakfast, Miranda Kerr makes a smoothie by mixing a cup of almond milk, fresh papaya, raspberries, blueberries, spinach, and almond butter for protein.

She also adds in the KORA Organics Noni Glow Skinfood supplement powder to keep her skin rejuvenated.

Kerr also likes eating eggs with avocados and making pancakes with bananas, two free-range eggs, and half a cup of oatmeal.

She blends all these ingredients and cooks them in a skillet with a bit of coconut oil to brown them. She then tops it with fresh raspberries and coconut nectar.

Kerr says that her son also enjoys eating this healthy pancake.

Lunch

An Angel's schedule is hectic, so when she's pressed for time and has to eat out, Kerr picks out the healthiest option on the menu - usually salads with lean chicken breast and fresh vegetables.

But when she has time, she likes to prepare a more complex lunch.

Kerr usually cooks a salmon fillet with fresh garlic, lemon, turmeric, and ginger, cooking the fish until it's moist yet flaky.

Kerr pairs this dish with a side salad that consists of cucumber, fresh seasonal sprouts, purple cauliflower, chopped arugula, and half an avocado.

For the dressing, Kerr mixes apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and fresh lemon.

She drinks plenty of water with her lunch, and if she needs an additional boost, she will add a squeeze of lemon juice to the water.

For this Angel, there's really no such thing as too much lemon. It’s really a staple in her diet.

Dinner

Kerr's favorite evening meal is a slow-roast chicken. Her diet-friendly recipe includes a whole chicken, onion, garlic, rosemary, turmeric, and fresh lemon.

She lets the chicken roast in the oven at a low temperature for seven hours. During the last hour, Kerr makes mashed sweet potatoes.

"Eating a high-nutrient diet actually makes you more satisfied with less food, and actually gives the ability to enjoy food more without overeating." - Joel Fuhrman, Celebrity Doctor

Kerr's preferred side dish for this meal is a salad with red cabbage, parsley, chopped celery, cilantro, diced cucumber, olives, fresh baby spinach, sunflower seeds, pine nuts, and chunks of halloumi cheese. She uses the same dressing as her lunchtime salad.

I know—a 10-ingredient salad might be too much for some of you. If that's the case, feel free to eliminate a few ingredients from this list or swap them out with what you already have in your pantry. Just make sure they're healthy too.

If you're not into poultry or salads, brown rice with sashimi is another protein-rich dinner option.

For the dressing, Kerr mixes apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and fresh lemon.

She drinks plenty of water with her lunch, and if she needs an additional boost, she will add a squeeze of lemon juice to the water.

For this Angel, there's really no such thing as too much lemon. It’s really a staple in her diet.

 

Dessert

Finally, we get to everyone's favorite part - dessert!

Of course, Kerr still keeps her diet principles in mind when satisfying her craving for sweets.

When she's on a really tight schedule, she will bring apples, blueberries, nuts, or almond butter to make sure she still snacks on something healthy when the munchies come on.

To ensure that she doesn’t binge, Miranda Kerr's trainer advises her to eat a bit of dark chocolate or ice cream twice a week so that she won't give in to these indulgences every day.

Because of this, Kerr has successfully achieved balance in all aspects of her health, making her a true fitness icon.
