No, it's not just you. Heidi Klum really does have million dollar legs! Back in 2011, she had them insured for $2.2 million: one for $1.2 million and the other for $1 million, because "I have a big old scar on my knee,” she told PEOPLE.
Six years later, Klum's 44-year-old legs are still dropping jaws across the world. “I always enjoyed, and I still do, wearing super short miniskirts showing off my legs,” she said. “I think legs are sexy. I do like to put a focus on my legs when I go out or when I get onto the red carpet. I do.”
How does she keep those stems so sexy, even after having four kids? She says she works out now more than ever.
“When you get older everything changes,” she said. “I have four children and I gained 45, 50 pounds with each of them… [It’s] gravity and having four pregnancies where your body stretches in and out four times, so I do more now than I have in my twenties or my thirties.”
Klum says she does a "little bit" of running — she'll even break out the ankle weights on the treadmill from time to time. One of her secrets is to do "butt lifts" to work the legs (including her inner thighs!) and the booty at once. "It’s always good to keep the muscles underneath working so that it is nice and toned," she says. "Toned is good."
Unfortunately, not all of us have supermodel genes (seriously, we caught a glimpse of her parents and now it suddenly all makes sense). Check out the workout ahead to shape long, lean legs like Heidi Klum's!
Booty Lift Plank
Take a plank and add a little extra oomph with this move! Start in forearm plank position and place your right ankle behind your left. Using your glutes and hamstrings (not your lower back), lift your right leg above your butt. Lower your leg down, resting your right ankle behind your left and repeat. Do 10 reps. Repeat the sequence on other leg. Click here to learn more.
Squat Step with Resistance Band
Break out your resistance band! Begin by standing with your feet a little closer than shoulder-width apart. Securely loop the band around both feet. Drop your butt back into a squat form, focusing the weight in the heels, keeping the abs pulled in tight and the chest up. Side step in a controlled motion, keeping resistance on the band the entire time, back and forth as many times as possible in 60 seconds. Learn more here.
Don't drop that resistance band quite yet! Stand tall with the band looped around your front leg's shin and back leg's calf/ankle. Kick your leg back and lift. Make sure your hips remain square. With your leg raised, lift it upward and pulse back and forth for 30 seconds. Keep it as straight as you can. Keep motion small & controlled. Repeat with your other leg. Learn more here.
You'll feel this fun move in your glutes and thighs. Start on all fours, with your hands directly under your shoulders and your knees directly under your hips. Bring one leg out to the side, keeping your foot on the ground. Exhale and lift the leg up as you move it behind you until it’s extending straight back from the hip. Without stopping, continue to move the leg behind you, crossing over the grounded leg. Draw the toe to the floor and tap the other side if you can. Reverse the rainbow movement. That is one rep. Do 10 reps, then switch sides and repeat. Click here to learn more.
Repeat the entire workout two to three more times, depending on your fitness level. Who's ready to see some Heidi Klum-style results?
