Fitness model Valentina Lequeux posted a new cardio workout to Instagram on Friday, June 26 that featured her in a thong bikini.
The model's outfit showed off her shapely physique as she moved through a series of cardio exercises. She wore a black halter-style top from activewear brand Nike, which she paired with white thong bottoms that included a thick waistband and left most of her sculpted booty on display. The eye was also drawn to Valentina's enviable abs and muscular arms and legs.
The fitness trainer went barefoot for her beachside workout and appeared to have recently gone for a dip in the ocean. Her shoulder-length brunette waves looked to be slightly damp as they hung loose around her face and down her back. Valentina also seemed to have added a touch of eye makeup and lip gloss to complete her look.
The cardio workout consisted of six moves designed to keep the heart rate elevated. Valentina performed the exercises one after the other and relied mostly on her own body weight for resistance. One of the exercises required her to lift a large rock.
The workout began with get-up to jump lunges. Valentina began with her back on the sand as she rolled to a standing position and performed a couple of jump lunges. The second exercise was the three-lunge complex, which utilized the rock for a bit of extra resistance.
In the third video, Valentina demonstrated the push-up to twist move, showing off her chiseled midsection as she moved from the push-up to the side plank position. This exercise was followed up with single-leg bicycles, another move that worked the abs. In the fifth video, the model performed a series of burpees to lateral jump squats and then finished the circuit with sumo squat holds and oblique crunches.In the caption of the post, Valentina told her followers that the cardio workout was great for everyone, writing that -- because it didn't require any equipment -- her fans shouldn't be able to make any excuses to not do the workout. The model added that the exercises were a dynamic way to complete a cardio workout.
The post earned over 20,000 likes and nearly 200 comments within the first day. Many of Valentina's followers complimented her enviable figure in the comments section, while others gave her feedback on the workout.
On Friday, The Inquisitr reported that the fitness model posted a similar full-body workout carried out at the beach. Valentina wore a different thong bikini for that video, which also showed off her sculpted backside and muscular physique.
