If you're a Lost fan, you know all about Kate's killer arms. Actress Evangeline Lilly, who plays the fierce yet enigmatic badass on the soon-to-be-over television show, has the perfectly toned triceps and shoulders most of us crave.
You don't need to master the firearm skills of a fugitive to look as hot in a tank top as Evangeline does. Simply arm yourself with the moves shown at right a few times a week, then prepare to rock every sleeveless item in your closet.
How the Workout Works Jessica Matthews, a certified personal trainer with the American Council on Exercise in San Diego, USA, developed a sequence of bodyweight exercises that focuses on the arms and shoulders but also includes core and leg moves for strength and support. But here's the best part: You don't need any props or even a gym.
"Bodyweight exercises allow for limitless possibilities. They use a variety of muscle groups and train the body to become more balanced and stable at the joints," Mathews says. And as island survivalist Kate proves regularly, balance and stability come in handy when you're running for your life through the jungle.
Head outdoors with this workout — it can be done anywhere there's a patch of grass and some shade. Bring along a yoga mat for extra comfort and to keep your clothes from getting dirty. Yeah, you want to look like Kate, but mud streaks and pit stains are only sexy on the island.
To see the best results, complete one circuit of all the exercises shown at right two to three times per week for six to eight weeks.
