Shakira’s got the whole package—a Colombian singing voice to die for and a physique to match her sensual lyrics—which is why she’s splitting her time between vocal and strength coaches in preparation for her El Dorado world tour.

A recent Instagram post from the acclaimed entertainer shows elite trainer Anna Kaiser putting Shakira through the oblique workout of death: The singer-songwriter targets her side abs by keeping her back flatter than she would for a normal side crunch and, with her hips twisted to one side, she pulsates up and down with her belly button tucked in and a finger on her abdominals to ensure she’s activating them to the fullest.

If you think you can follow that act, try her wall sit routine. She’s posted against a wall squeezing a med ball between her legs and holding weights in each hand; the wall sit works the quads and hamstrings, the med ball squeeze lights up the inner thighs, and the isometric 90-degree hold fires up the biceps for a full-body twist on a gym class classic. If you’re already against a mirror, try the banded wall squat, which adds hip mobility and lowers your chance of injury when it’s time to hit the real squat rack.
