FAB FIGURE: Heidi Klum
CELEB TRAINER: David Kirsch
SMART TIPS:

7. Stick your butt out on the elliptical machine. This shifts the focus to your butt, hamstrings, outer thighs, and quadriceps. (If you stand up too straight--a common mistake--you work only your quads.)
8. When you're doing any kind of athletic movement--jumping, lunging, lifting weights--never lock your elbows or knees. Keep them slightly "soft" (but not floppy) to prevent joint injury.
9.MUST-DO MOVE: Platypus walk
TARGETS: Butt
HOW TO DO IT: Firmly grasp a seven- to 10-pound medicine ball--or a dumbbell that weighs between four and 10 pounds--overhead with both hands (keeping arms straight). Squat as low as you can go, toes pointing out. Remaining in the squat, walk slowly forward for eight steps, then slowly backward for another eight. Repeat the sequence.
