Calling all James Bond fans: the latest film, Skyfall, hits cinemas next week and while men want to be like the Secret Agent Bond, James Bond, we women want to look like those iconic Bond Girls.
ELLE tasked Personal Trainer Tim Weeks with his own secret mission: to decipher just how those Bond Girls look so healthy and toned.
Secret mission accomplished, it’s time to put down that shaken Martini (think of the saved calories) because here’s his fitness mission for us, if we choose to accept it...

Exercise Tip: ‘Bored of endless squats? Get a lifted, shapely bum with this unusual exercise’ explains Tim.
Alphabet Bum: ‘Get on all fours with your hands and knees making a rectangle on the floor. Keep your back flat at all times and keep your weight distribution equal through your shoulders and arms.

Reps: Repeat the A to Z on both legs
