In 2013, Ellen Adarna changed the landscape of workout videos when she released her nip-slip-prone exercise video that had us sweating. Just a few days ago, Iza Calzado made her own under the guise of a music video for the song “#Lebelap.”
Today, former Mulawin star Angel Locsin is spreading her wings in the exercise video department. Only this time, the woman in the spotlight is actually doing legit gym work.
In the short clip below, uploaded on Angel’s official Facebook page on January 16, the actress breaks the Internet by doing something that would most probably break our back:
Less than 24 hours after its upload, the post has garnered nearly 1.4 million views and nearly 140,000 likes, proving that women who lift can be just as attractively viral as women who train with no bra on.
The lifting sequence is part of Angel Locsin’s CrossFit training, a regimen she started two months ago.
So, after Bootcamp and Core class last night, this happened! (nang dahil sa chikahan, hehe)😃 Not too bad for my first attempt at handstand, di ba coach @betinabordeos ?😁 Can't wait to do this without the walls to assist me :) goal: Handstand Push-ups😎👍 #CrossFit #girlsofcrossfit #firsthandstandattempt #stronger
A report from abs-cbnnews.com hints that the CrossFit training—a routine known for its notorious intensity—might be part of her preparation for Erik Matti’s upcoming Darna movie, where she is rumored to once again take flight as the country’s most popular superheroine.
But Angel, if you’re reading right now, we'd like you to know that in case the Darna thing doesn’t pan out, our cover is always ready to make space for you and your weightlifting ways.
