Joan Smalls Workout Routine
Mark Gordon is the personal trainer to tall Smalls. Mark has worked with other top models also like Lindsay Ellingson. Smalls met him 4 years back. He always makes the workout routine, tailored according to her current needs. She gives full stress on her body physique as body is a part of her business and taking proper care of that is not only her duty (if she wants to exist in modeling industry) but part of her lifestyle.
As, she is suffering from scoliosis, which is the abnormal curving of the spinal cord, she needs to do regular exercises. She says that she does 1 hour of daily exercises. Joan needs to strengthen her back and relatively do many exercises for the same. She starts with cardio like jogging, running, etc. followed by strength training with her own body weight and interval training. Abs and Buns are always the target of her exercises. She keeps a check that she burns 500 calories everyday.
She has always been lean. She played volleyball and ran on the tracks as a child and did drawing as a part of her hobby.
If there is a photoshoot or any fashion show in the near future, she does not forget to hit the gym everyday for an hour. Her main focus is on those exercises which provide flexibility and toned legs. You must have seen Victoria’s Secret models in fashion shows, their fit body and toned legs (However, men do see something else in VS fashion models ;)).
