Victoria's Secret-Model Workout or Olympic Champion's Training Regimen?

Last night, CBS aired its annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show--an amalgamation of models in lingerie, live musical performances, and major body-image distress for women watching at home. To help said women obtain the same otherworldly dimensions that they viewed on the runway last night, today People magazine explains how Adriana Lima--who gave birth to a daughter just eight weeks before walking in the show--got into V.S.-runway shape. To make this information fun, rather than incredibly discouraging, we ask you to guess which of the below training regimens was used by Adriana Lima, one of the world's most beautiful women, and which was the pre-Olympics workout favored by Usain Bolt, the world's fastest person.

A) Starting at 9 a.m., [redacted]'s twice-daily workouts included 20 to 30 minutes on an exercise bike, followed by 20 to 30 minutes of core work and a "quick-reflex" shadowboxing routine created by [redacted], a former middleweight boxing champion. Next, the [redacted] would don real boxing gloves and practice punching combinations to learn speed and power, followed by glute and leg sculpting exercises, and a rigorous jump-roping routine finished with stretching.

Sound exhausting? That's just [redacted] morning workout. "[redacted]'d head home to be with the [redacted] and then, pow! [Redacted]'d come back that night from 5 to 8 p.m."

B) [Redacted] trains six days a week, and spends an hour a day in the gym, primarily on weight work.

If you guessed that the Olympic gold-medalist followed B, the second workout plan, you are right. Lima, People notes, trained in total "four to six hours every day, seven days a week." As if that were not enough, the model also subsisted on "steamed dark greens and lean proteins."
