For Camilla Belle, variety is a priority in her workouts, so she was thrilled to find a trainer who understands in Skye Hansen.

“Her workouts have always been very varied and very different,” Belle tells PEOPLE. “That’s what I really love about it.”

“I do Pilates or SoulCycle or a bunch of different things so then with that, she’ll incorporate that into her training as well. So we’ll do one day really more with weights, another day with TRX, another day with more boxing, so in that sense it makes you an overall more fit person.”

Hansen put Belle through a four-move workout that anyone can do – all you need are TRX straps, two free weights, and a mat.

1. Single leg squats

“We’re going to do a two-part movement. I’m going to have her move into a single-leg squat, so coming down into parallel, driving up through her heel, and then nice and long with the arms, and squeezing that glute,” Hansen explains. Do this for 10 reps on each side, and think about spreading your toes as a stabilizer and focus on your breathing.

Squats are also Belle’s favorite movement.

“Squats are always fantastic because you know they’re really working, and they hurt after many repetitions,” Belle says. “But you know they’re going to work the next day,” she laughs.

2. Plank variation

“Our feet are about hip distance, and I’m going to have you lower down onto your forearms, and then placing one hand, and then the other, back up to the top. Remember each time you come up to alternate the left and right hands.” Keep your legs rigid throughout the plank, and push up with your hands as you do the movement for a full minute. This strengthens the core and arms.

3. Free weight rows

“Think yoga warrior 2 [pose], so we’re going to place one foot facing in the direction we’re looking, and the other at about 45 degrees. Then we’re going to bring the weights up, and we’re going to drift forward a little bit, and bring this arm down onto our thigh. From here, give me a row down, and coming up twisting through the torso.” Do 20 reps, and then switch to the other side.

4. TRX rows

“I want you guys to bring your palms facing each other, and we’re going to bring the chest into the straps, and release all the way up.” Do this for 15 reps.

To make it easier, walk your feet away from the straps. But Hansen has Belle move in closer for a tougher movement. “As you can see, she’s a lot lower now,” Hansen says. “And it’s a lot harder now!” Belle laughs.

From there, you can take a 30 second break, and then repeat the entire set two more times.

“Have fun working out at home, and I hope you do as well as Camilla did,” Hansen says. “Yeah, right!” Belle jokes.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
