You don’t get shoulders like Sandra’s by eating bon bons all day. The actress told InStyle that whenever she’s in LA, she makes a point to take Pilates classes.

• Alternate three sets of 20 standing squats with three sets of push ups (as many as you can do in good form).
• Alternate three sets of 20 reverse lunges with three sets of 15 dumbbell dead lifts (Squat with dumbbells in each hand. Make sure your back is flat and knees don’t reach past your toes).
• Alternate three sets of 15 side lunges (alternate sides) with three sets of 20 dumbbell bicep curls to shoulder press (with palms up curl dumbbells into your chest keeping your elbows close to your sides, press dumbbells up, bring your arms back down, reverse curl and repeat).
• Lie face up in a crunch position (legs in the air, spine flat on the ground) and scissor kick the legs for as many seconds as you can in good form. Rest and repeat three times.
