Who knew the Mannequin Challenge could be such a good workout? The Victoria’s Secret models are ramping up their fitness efforts in preparation for the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and they decided to try their hand at the viral Mannequin Challenge while in the middle of a sweat session.
In the impressive video posted on Thursday, models Thayna Santos, Maria Borges, Cindy Mello, Veridiana Ferreira, and Luma Grothe freeze in the midst of their workout, holding deadlifts, crunches, punches, planks, and bicep curls in what must be excruciating positions.

While these VS models get their sweat on in N.Y.C., others are practicing their best runway walk. On Thursday, Alessandra Ambrosio, Josephine Skriver, and Sui He traveled to China with the brand and walked in the Double Eleven Countdown Gala in some seriously fierce lingerie and angel wings.
