Fitness model Valentina Lequeux posted her latest workout to social media platform Instagram on Thursday, July 2. In the video clips, the model showed off her chiseled abdomen as she trained her core.
For the workout, the fitness trainer wore a gray sports bra with a high neckline that left much of her upper body exposed, including her sculpted arms and toned tummy. She paired the top with white spandex shorts that extended to the tops of her thighs and rose to her navel. The shorts emphasized Valentina’s shapely backside and hips while revealing plenty of her muscular legs.
For footwear, Valentina went with a pair of yellow sneakers. She pulled her highlighted brunette hair back into a bun that sat at the base of her head and appeared to have added a touch of eye makeup and lip gloss to complete the look.
Valentina’s ab workout took place at a gym called Elev8tion Fitness, according to the geotag on the post. She performed a total of six exercises, each split into an individual slide in the post. Valentina completed the moves on a black exercise mat, relying on body weight for resistance for nearly all of the exercises. For one move, she used a yellow resistance band.

⚡️TOTAL ABS???? some #TRUTH for ya ???????? This is a great workout to get rid of those love handles! WAIT…what? No no no, guys…listen this is a constant question (and im sorry for the people who hear me say this a 100 times) all coaches get at least 50 times a week if not a 1000. And I know a lot of you are just getting started on your fit journeys so I’ll give you the straight up FACT. The only way you can get that six pack to uncover is to eat less calories than you expend! being on a caloric deficit is the ONLY way to loose that unwanted fat, moreover there is no proven way to spot reduce, ok guys? Getting your nutrition in check is the key. Of course exercise is an integral part to shape the body and to get there faster, but, if you find yourself not able to loose that fat, and you think you’re eating “healthy” check how MUCH heathy food you’re eating each day. ¡Este es un gran ejercicio para adelgazar la barriga! ¿Esperate, que? No no no, chic@s…esta es una pregunta que me hacen todo el tiempo (y lo siento por las personas que me escuchan decir la respuesta a cada rato) al menos 50 veces por semana, si no 1000. Y sé que muchos de ustedes están comenzando recién en sus viajes fit, así que les daré el HECHO directo. ¡La única forma en que pueden descubrir sus abs es comer menos calorías de las que gastan al día! Estar en un déficit calórico es la ÚNICA forma de perder esa grasa no deseada, además, no hay forma comprobada de reducir grasa localizada, si no sea por ir al med spa. Controlar tu nutrición es la clave. Por supuesto, entrenar es una parte integral para moldear el cuerpo y llegar a tus metas más rápido. Y si no podes perder esa grasa no deseada y crees que estás comiendo "saludablemente", mira cuánta cantidad de comida saludable estás comiendo cada día. Perform all as circuit 5X 90 sec rest between rounds 1️⃣REVERSE PLANK TO TOE TOUCH: 20 sec 2️⃣V FLUTTER KICKS: 20 sec 3️⃣LEG RISE CRUNCH: 20 sec 4️⃣PLANK SHOULDER TAP: 30 sec 5️⃣V RAISE TO ABDUCTION: 20 sec 6️⃣90 DEGREE TOE SIT UP: 30 sec
The first exercise in the routine was the reverse plank to toe touch. Valentina positioned her body in a tabletop, supporting her weight on her arms and legs, and then reached up to touch one hand to the opposite toe, alternating sides. In the second video, the model performed V flutter kicks, keeping both legs raised as she moved them up and down.
The third video featured the leg rise crunch. Lying flat on her back, Valentina brought both legs up toward the ceiling and then lifted her backside off the floor for an added crunch. The fourth exercise was the plank shoulder tap, followed by the V raise to abduction, using the resistance band. The final exercise in the circuit was the 90-degree toe sit-up. Valentina brought her knees in to her chest at the same time she extended her arms out in front of her.
In the caption of the post, Valentina wrote out the exercises and added the number of seconds her followers should perform each one. She recommended that they complete a total of five rounds of the circuit.
